My wife and I were excited to try this place. When you walk into the front door, it makes you feel closed in and it's un inviting. After you walk through the second set of doors, you feel like you are in a wonderful Mexican setting. The atmosphere and decor are outstanding. Unfortunately for me and my wife, that's where... More

I went out of my way to go here on this visit to Ft. Worth. I get to the DFW area about once every year and generally try to eat here because I love the food - and it is still good. This time I rolled the dice and asked a business associate who I wasn't sure was a fan... More

The salsa is made fresh twice a day and the relish is totally unique. Order the spicy fajitas with the bean soup... get it flaming... They will light it right in front of you. My favorite.

Friday nights are usually tough and really busy for really good restaurants. This proved true at La Familia where recently they were totally understaffed. I called before hand and was told there was no wait for a table. When we arrived the line was out the door. There were 10 vacant tables. When we finally worked our way to the... More

Went for lunch today with GF and the experience was bad from the start. About half full at lunch, and waited 5-10 minutes at entrance to be greeted and seated, and we were the only two waiting. Finally, the owner shows up, says hello, and tells us to follow him. He takes off like it's a race. Slides out 2... More

I've been eating at La Familia since they moved to the Foch St location, before 7th Street turned into what it is. Make no mistake, this family owned restaurant does everything right, and any restauranteur wanting to see how to properly run a restaurant should study this gem. You will be greeted warmly at the door and welcomed into this... More

We had a small group from work meet here for lunch. This was my first time here. Not germaphobic, but I see some think someone standing at the door and shaking everyone's hand is a nice gesture, but this is a very poor health practice. The service was very rushed, the food was overpriced for a lunch menu, and the... More

La Familia has long been one of our favorites in Fort Worth. Service typically excellent, food typically better. Last night, this was not the case. The restaurant was 95% empty at 730pm, which was odd. What was odder, was the quality of the food (fajitas were dry and tasteless) and the service was awful. Even though no one was there,... More

Its PAUL , who greets you with a smile and a handshake- who we look forward to seeing at the door HE cheers up your meal from the start. Yes they have the best salsa and Excellent food never had a bad meal and the Margaritas are Top Shelf, but PAUL would be sorely missed as he makes this place... More
