Satisfied a tamale craving.

Nacho chips and salsa upon arrival at the table, yum. We ordered the dinner for 2 so we could have a sampling of a few things. Tacos, tamales, enchilada, chile relleno, rice, refried beans...all great. Could not believe the portions sizes, you can't leave this place hungry. Decoration was a bit... read more

I visited here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon with my best friend & our 2 baby girls (3 months & 8 months). This restaurant is very family friendly, with large booths perfect for car seats. We immediately got a half pitcher of their strawberry margaritas (so good) to spilt & ordered their queso dip for the chips. My friend... More

My wife and I ate here as a last resort while attending a concert at Seneca Niagara Casino. We have always loved Mexican food, and decided to try here. From the outside it does not look like much. Boy were we wrong we ordered Queso Fundido to start, and were blown away, everything after that was equally great. This will... More

This was my first time to the restaurant's new location. I went with my parents on a Friday night and the place was packed. They told us it would be about a 15 minute wait so we went back to the bar and ordered margaritas. The bartender was very nice and friendly and just a few minutes after he poured... More

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
