To start we had the salsa and chips which are complimentary, as it is with most Mexican restaurants. The chips were decent as was the salsa.

One of the detriments to not being local but eating local is knowing what to order. In this case the 2 of us could have shared one entree. The chicken nachos and carnitas entree were huge.

We were pleasantly surprised by La Galera. The food was very well priced. My husband and I shared fajitas and had plenty to eat. The staff was courteous. A good experience.
