Stopped there for lunch on our road trip through Texas. Bad choice. Service was very slow and inattentive. The food wasn't good either. Our waiters never came back to ask us how everything was. The only thing that was pretty good were chips and salsa on the table.

Traveling through Brownwood, we were delighted that someone recommended La Botana. The food was good, and we were delighted to discover that Brownwood is no longer dry.

Street tacos al pastor are great, and would actually be incredible if they were seasoned like they used to be. They changed the marinade and decreased salt, but still enjoyable

The food is really good but finally I can get the quacamole the way I like it. Hot sauce wasn't too hot and didn't have poor service like some people are complaining of.

LaBotana has moved and the new location is very nice. They now have a nice bar, clean, modern decor and can seat many more than the previous location. The menu is pretty much the same and have added "made at the table" guacamole. But…the service can be horrible at times. To the point of being totally ignored. Hopefully, management will... More

Four of us went to lunch at La Botana. The food and service were excellent. Prices were very reasonable. It is not a fancy place, but was nicely decorated and clean.

The food is very good, very authentic. Service is quick, food is fresh and the staff is friendly. I'd certainly recommend it.

We have eaten here many times. Their breakfasts are especially good and not expensive. Very wide selection of dishes. The beans are cooked to perfection, so be certain to try a bowl. People are friendly, service is quick. The food has always been fresh.
