Excellent service and foid

Great place for family lunch. Very festive atmosphere. Love all the colors and butterflies. Top notch service and very good food. Could not rate a 5 only because the salsa wasn't my favorite, while others may really like it, just wasn't for me. Will definitely eat here again.

Love this place! Haven't been here in years and it's just as good as always! Tacos were great, shrimp was perfect! Definitely a must visit!

We always come here when I am visiting family. It is still great and the service could not have been better. Food is so fresh and tastes healthy for Mexican food. We also ate at Taco Mama which is also good, but we came back here again because the service here is head and shoulders above Taco Mama.

We ate here after it was recommended in our resort's guidebook. We are from Texas, so we have had our fair share of Mexican food, and I found La Hacienda to have a fresh take on this genre of cuisine. There were several vegetarian options available including vegetable fajitas. I ordered a mix plate with two cheese enchiladas topped with... More

I took my family there for dinner on a Sunday night. Service was excellent. The food was very good. The drinks were very good as well. The restaurant is very clean. The green salsa is excellent.

The food was indeed very good along with excellent service by the wait staff. The beef taco and refried beans were seasoned just right. The rice does have more veggies in it that I'm accustomed to but it was very good. All three salsas were amazing- nothing too hot. We also ordered a side of guacamole and was delighted by... More

Food is authentic Mexican food. Being from South Texas I was expecting something a little different. Food was good, just the not normal Tex-Mex that I was use too. Salsa was very good as well as the chips.

This may be a local thing. I never came across it in my forty years in the west but putting cheese sauce on a chimachanga is just wrong. A chimachanga is a deep fried burrito. The reason to deep fry anything is to make it crisp. Why put a sauce on it that makes it soggy? Disappointing meal. My wife... More

They give you three types of salsa with your chips, and one of them in a sweet salsa. It's delicious (along with the other two!). The variety appetizer plate was filling and very tasty. Friendly and attentive staff.

We have eaten here almost every time we come to Hot Springs. Very authentic, clearly these are from family recipes. Love the sweet salsa!
