Disappointed in our recent visit

We visited La Hacienda on a Saturday night after a movie. We were thinking of going to El Pastor but were afraid they wouldn’t still be open. La Hacienda has always been our go to restaurant for late night dining. We had not been there in quite sometime. I was very disappointed in my meal. I... read more

We have been their customers for many years. It used to be authentic but now it is only bad and sad. No idea what changed. Guacomole was terrible, salsa uninspired, meat for fajitas not sizzling hot and bland. We used to like it a lot, since they have awesome opening hours but...sad to say, we are not coming back anytime... More

La Hacienda is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Madison area. Their food is authentic and plentiful. I love their mild salsa. Their fajitas are also the best!

I've been frequenting this favorite Mexican restaurant of mine since they opened many years ago. I got into a rut quite early on and really only order one of two different choices for lunch/dinner: Steak Chimichangas or the Parriada grill to share. I've never gone wrong with these two choices and highly recommend that people try the Parriada grill if... More

We have dined here on and off for many years. The food has progressively become more "fast food". They have an extensive menu, but the food seems bulk prepared and bland. Their chips and salsa have gone from authentic to seemingly boxed. The service is spotty- sometimes awesome and others barely there. Sad to see this happen.

Very casual, great service, and fantastic authentic Mexican food! Steak fajitas were so tender they melted in your mouth! We also have the fundito chriotzo fantastic...they give you more than enough tortillas and will give you more. We also have a combination plate to test out. Enchiladas and tostada all great! Food is cheep, fresh and great... Our waitress barely... More

I drive from De Forest just for the steak nachos. They don't skimp on the steak or cheese (as many chain restaurants do). Also, the avocado slices are always fresh. Sometimes I order extra avocado just because they are so good. You get a mound of steak nachos for only $8.95. It is easily a full meal for 3 people.... More

As a native Madisonian, I eat here quite a bit. I am always impressed with the qualitiy of food, service, and price. There is never a wait to be seated due to plenty of seating area. Sometimes a little wait for your food, but I attribute that to it being prepared correctly. I can usually feed my family of three... More

Not much atmosphere and the wait staff was average. However the chimichangas were really good! Lots of food for the money.

...as a business traveler in the area, I wanted to try Mexican food and based on the recommendation of the front desk staff at the hotel I chose to try this restaurant. Got there between 6:30 and 6:45pm and being a busy day of the week it took a while for the waiter to come and attend to our party... More
