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

Not a lot of choices in Madison for Mexican food and given that most Mexican food restaurants in the state choose to "dumb-down" the authentic spices to adjust for the mid-west taste bud.... there may not be - except for those who choose to stay totally genuine to the cuisine. Wife and I decided to stop in on a recent... More

After several years out of the area, I was thrilled to get back to La Hacienda in August 2012. I was glad to see that little had changed; the food was still fantastic and the lunch specials are a great deal (a smaller (actually, still more than ample) portion and drink for 6-8 bucks). Try the shredded beef chimichangas; they're... More

Solid, basic Mexican food, very popular with Hispanics in Madison and Anglos who like "real" Mexican atmosphere.
