Had to wait for a table for quite awhile but always know that is a good sign. Authentic Mexican food!

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!

We met friends at La Galera for the first time. The food is very good, also loved the decor, the service was decent and the ambiance pleasant, however due to the fact is rather large the noise level is high to have a quiet dinner. I will be going back, like to try different dishes next time. So, if you... More

Really enjoyed our lunch out at La Galera. Since they moved to the new location we have been there a few times and always have had good food and good service. Love the colorful booths and tables. This dining room is pretty large but is usually packed. The food was just the right spice, I really enjoyed the chorizo sausage.

As a fan of true Mexican food , I am very pleased to report and recommend this restaurant to you. The food was great, the service perfect and the ambiance good. My spouse and I were surprised to find this spot. We toasted our good luck a few times Wednesday night, June 4.

Waiting 15 minutes and they didn't even get out drink. Two tables around us were seated and had their drinks and food orders taken and we were ignored. Made eye contact with almost ever employee there trying to get some service. After 15 minutes we walked out. The only plus was we got chips and dip while we waited....downside to... More
