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.

Great place to sit back and chill. I love the Cactus and Pork plate. The chips and salsa are home made and AMAZING. The owner is on hand and might even be your waiter! Great Place AAAAAA++++

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!

Was looking for some good, cheap Mexican food and was recommended this place. Definitely didn't disappoint. Food was fantastic! Only complaint would be the parking lot, nothing dangerous or anything, just kind of... unorganized.
