Delicious food on a budget. Don't get fooled into ordering higher cost than you want, and if you aren't used to ala carte ordering, then make sure you get everything you want up front, or you will be waiting. However, the tacos are soooooo good. We will be back again!

The food at Las Teresitas is very good. The food tastes fresh and there are a lot of options on the menu. I am not a big fan of shredded melted cheese which is what they put on top of their items. Portion sizes are big so you will need a take home box! The place itself may not be... More

Ate here once a few years ago on recommendation from a local. Was back in town earlier this week and stopped in again. For what looks like a hole-in-the-wall sort of place in a not necessarily great (but not bad) part of town, Las Teresitas is a best-kept secret in the Twin Cities. Absolutely love their salsa bar (seriously -... More

Upon seeing the visage of this understated Mexican restaurant, you'd likely want to keep on driving but you'd be sorely mistaken in doing so. This restaurant spends it's time making delicious, authentic food at easy to swallow prices. Home made guacamole, mole, and horchata, just to name a few items. The salsa bar had an impressive variety of offerings but... More

From American to Italian, from Indian to Ethiopian, I had tried every cuisine except Mexican! So, hubby researched and decided on Las Teresitas! Appearances can be deceptive and this simple restaurant definitely packed quite a punch with its yummy food! I ordered Nachos(without the chorizos), veggie quesadilla and french fries (Can't resist fries) as a takeout! Even tried chip and... More

We saw some reviews of this unassuming place and found it easily when driving past from the airport. We think we were able to get a vegan meal (always a little hard to be sure of all ingredients in places like this). Veggie tacos and burrito. Salsa and chip bar was self serve but some fun options. Folks there were... More

Las Teresitas may not be really fancy but its clean, comfortable, the staff is super friendly and the food is beyond what you'll get at another "Mexican restaurant". The all you can eat chips and salsa bar is great, good chips and the choice of salsas is to die for. I've had several different food items here and have never... More

We had a friend who had a 3 hour layover at the airport and were trying to find a place that was near the airport but not expensive. Glad we found Las Teresitas. We didn't try the salad bar but the tacos and enchiladas were terrific! We were served promptly and had no problems.

We go here occasionally, and would go more if service was consistent. They have a salsa bar which is typically pretty good. The baskets for the salsa don't fit more than one little container, which is super annoying and they never fix this. oh well, not the main problem. a younger server is usually nice and friendly, but an older...
