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

I've been to La Galera a number of times...it is always very good. The food is authentic Mexican. You get the warm chips and salsa delivered to every table. The new facility is awesome with colorful painted booths and room for everyone! The place is usually packed, which is a sign of how good the food is! If you go,... More

Very good food......and that is saying a lot because I am not a big fan of Mexican food or spicy fare. Would definitely make an encore visit and recommend everyone make a least one visit.

The service is great, prices reasonable and the food is authentic--not americanized at all. It has grown from a little place to a booming spot with their new location in the strip mall on NFB. We frequent here monthly. Chips and salsa are the bomb!
