From the outside building it look very general like all commercial building. However once you walk pass the double doors, you will find some of the most colorful decor. Which is what the Mexican heritage is all about. I did enjoy looking at them. However the food was fantastic. We were serve chips and salsa before our lunch, it was... More

My husband and I crossed the border for a bit of shopping and accidentally stumbled upon La Galera. We were across the street from La Galera, attempting to get online to check for restaurants in the area. I looked up, noticed the sign and the full parking lot - always a good sign when you see a full parking lot.... More

We visited the previous location many times because the food is so good and reasonable, even though parking and atmosphere were lacking. This new location is great: lots of parking, brightly colored interior, and the food and service continue to be very good. I often get the fajita, but there are so many very good entries that I am never... More

Not my first visit to this restaurant but the first since relocating...the food is great, cheap and different then what you find in Canada and definitely a huge step above Taco Bell or Mighty Taco. Visited this past Saturday and yes there was about a 25 minute wait, sat at the bar, enjoyed some Pacifico Beer, free chips & salsa.... More

This authentic Mexican food is the best around. Forget Might Taco and Taco Bell. There is always a wait but this is a good sign and tells how good the food is. And is it ever reasonable. You will walk out stuffed for very little money. Try is, you'll love it.

The food is really okay. Food comes out in a decent time and it's not a bad place--not that good though. We ordered 3 dishes, and when we got the check I noticed that I had 4 charges--one waaaaaay at the top and 3 toward the bottom. When I pointed that out, the cashier guy -who was also our server--laughed... More

We visited the new location for this restaurant and tried the sampler dinner for two! It was very good and we would recommend it. For any one wanting to try the different dishes. The best was our dessert, we shared a very generous vanilla ice cream topped with honey and and cinnamon on top of some yummy crunchy chips. We... More

We decided at the last minute to try the new and improved La Galera on a Tuesday night. On arrival I was surprised how busy they were, especially on a cold winter night. Despite the restaurant being full, we were seated immediately. The wait staff was very efficient and very quick in taking our order. The menu items are very... More

Have eaten here often. Yesterday was first time at New Location. Larger dinning room, which means more people, more staff- the whole staff were so attentive, and busy. Food came out hot, and was delicious. We ate at the bar, so as not to wait for a table, though we had no server- dedicated to the bar, every-staff member asked... More
