We went with a party of 6 on a Saturday night. The wait was about 20 minutes. We were able to sit in one of the large booths without being completely squished together (2 of the party were young kids). The portions were too big... I bought a side of rice that was a full sized dinner plate piled high... More

There are plenty of sit down restaurants near the Niagara Falls, NY outlet mall. La Galera has good, authentic Mexican food and is a good alternative to the many sit down places nearby. The decor is colorful and quite visual. Restaurant is clean and they appear to have opened in recent months. Margaritas are a good compliment to your meal.... More

Not being from the area, we took a chance on La Galera, which was located close to our motel, and we're glad we did! This is obviously a local favorite as evidenced by families, couples, and teenagers out on a Friday night. We were seated quickly and got down to the biggest decision of the evening-what to order. Our server... More

Looking for a restaurant around the Fashion Outlet mall and found this place. Since we are not from the area, we took a chance. Boy, am I glad we ever did. The staff were very friendly and explained the menu. The chips with salsa arrived and we must have had three baskets of chips. Both the chips and salsa were... More

We dine regularly at La Galera. The food is the most authentic Mexican food you will find in Western New York. It is prepared fresh and served HOT! There is an abundance of choices and you will not be disappointed with any of them. Portions are large and prices are low!

That's how good this place is. Sometimes a line on weekends, so we go during the week. Tons of food choices, large portions and budget friendly. Carnitas are my favorite time and time again!
