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

This past weekend my husband and I decided to enjoy a drive in the lovely weather and take a trip to Niagara Falls, New York We remembered seeing this restaurant many times in passing and thought since it was lunchtime why not give it a try. From the moment you enter your attention is grabed by the vibrant decor all... More

La Galera has authentic Mexican food at amazing prices. Excellent portions and everything in is made fresh to order. If you love Mexican, this place is a must.

My family loves Mexican food. After living in California for over 30 yrs and frequent trips south of the border we know what real Mexican food is supposed to be. When I first moved my family back to this area we were devastated to not find any good Mexican restaurants. Every time someone recommended one and claimed it was great... 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
