Very Good

This is a well run Mexican restaurant with very good food. Service is excellent. I've been eating here for years and while not my favorite Mexican restaurant in Lincoln, it is in my top 3.

My son found it while searching for restaurants in Lincoln NE. Not very convenient off of the Interstate but if you have time to find it, worth the trip. Corn tortilla chips and good salsa not to spicy and fresh appearing. The beans were probably some of the best I had at a Mexican restaurant. The waitress said they used... More

Service was great. Margaritas were yummy, but the actual entrees were a little small and didn't have much flavor. My sister (who lives in Lincoln) loves this place, but we've always just thought it was mediocre.

Great Mexican food. Had the enchiladas and they were very tasty. Also had the potato chorizo soup which was to die for. Some of the best Mexican I have had in a long time. I will definitely be back.

We ate there finally after being in Lincoln NE several times. SO glad we did. The reviews are not lying, their food is so authentic and so good, cant wait to eat there again. The price was good and the plates were large.

We used to love this place. We told many people this was the best mexican in town. Can't tell you how many people we referred and as a manager of a business I used them to cater some events. Last 2 visits have been less than stellar. My wife is highly sensitive to gluten. A touch of gluten from cross... More

Lincoln has a lot of Mexican restaurants, so many in fact that I haven't had a chance to try them all, but of the ones I have tried La Paz really stands out from a crowd of a lot of so so places. The chips and salsa are great, the food is great, hard to get too excited about refried... More

We went in with a fairly big group and I will not go back. Service was awful, food was lackluster, and it did not sit well. The drinks were good but that's really the only positive I have.
