Inexpensive for lunch

You can eat inexpensively for lunch if you order off the a la cart section of the menu. The food is good but not the best I have ever had. The chips, salsa and white sauce is very nice. Service is great. There is also a rewards program if you sign in with your phone number on the tablet as... read more

The food at Las Trancas was very good and satisfying! I had the seafood (crab and shrimp) enchiladas, guacomole dip and mango lemonade; all was delicious! Although the decor was dated and unattractive, I would definitely eat here again to try a different dish.

Looks ordinary but the food is far from it. Freshly made guacamole, tasty salsa and plenty of chips preceded a spectacular shrimp salad with mango, enchiladas and more. This restaurant is definitely beyond the common version we see most often. It is all done with friendly and efficient service. I recommend them highly.

Our food was really good (the soup in particular was excellent). Our waitress seemed very inexperienced and distracted throughout our entire meal (the other wait staff seemed very competent). Overall, a good place to eat - you will not be disappointed with the food!

Kids ordered a burger and fries ($5.59), and chicken fingers ($5.59) and fries. I ordered the enchiladas la Paz (seafood enchiladas). Wife ordered the Sopa Azteca (chicken soup) ($5.99). Kids enjoyed theirs and wife enjoyed hers. The chips are good here, but the salsa is just good...not great. Enchiladas la Paz ($11.55) were pretty good, but, to be honest, Chi... More

My wife and I stopped in for the first time today and were we pleasantly surprised! The restaurant itself is an older repurposed building with minimal decor but reasonably clean (BBQ and Mexican restaurants should always be a little "funky"). The greeter turned out to be our waiter and could use some charm school but he was efficient and served... More

This Mexican restaurant rises above average because it seems that the food is skillfully-prepared and served by a staff that knows good food. The beans were cooked just right. They make tamales in-house. The supervisor helpfully explained how various dishes were prepared. Portions are large, so bring an appetite.

Had an "after church" lunch there yesterday. Have been looking for Mexican restaurant in this part of the woods and based upon Tripadvisor reviews, decided to give Las Tracas a try. We were not disappointed. Not too crowded, seated immediately and food delivered quickly. Other reviewers commented about a "very good Tex/Mex" meal, but it's much more than that. Having... More
