This is Tex-Mex at it's finest the way grandma use to do it. I found the prices very reasonable, the portions very generous, and the food was top shelf. The building is in poor shape but is clean and could use a real remodel but I didn't come for the environment I came for the groceries. The barbacoa was as... More

We have been driving past this unassuming little place for a couple of years. We finally stopped. I'm glad we did. It is a small restaurant. The food is excellent. Well prepared, delicious, fresh.

Small family owned real deal little Mexican restaurant. Not fancy but very clean with friendly staff and great food. Have taken many friends here who have lived in Livingston all their lives and never stopped and they are shocked! Why haven't we eaten here before? Is the usual comment. Great prices, authentic dishes family friendly.

The building takes "hole-in-the-wall" to new heights but once you enter and eat the homemade Authentic Mexican cuisine, you won't regret it! There were 6 of us who all ordered something different and we all enjoyed our meals thoroughly! The owners were also super friendly!

La Colonia has the best authentic Mexican food in town! The enchiladas are the best! The owners are very nice and there is one waiter that always helps me when I go. I think his name is Randy not only is he nice and polite but very good looking also!! I love this place!

La Colonia had a great variety of quality, affordable, authentic Mexican food. From entrees to salsas, there were so many choices and everything I've tried from La Colonia has been great. I plan to go back a few times to try more of the menu.

My friend told me of this place, and I was skeptical for a while. Once I made the choice to go, it was one of the best choices I have ever made! The food is incredible and cheap! I ordered the chile rellenos ,and was by far the best chile rellenos I have ever had! The chips and salsa are... More

I Have been going to the restaurant since they opened and always end up ordering these delicious peppers filled with authentic white cheese, chopped onions and spices. Their guacamole and homemade corn tortillas top off my favorite meal!
