“Fresh, Authentic Mexican Food, Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2008

Food is truly authentic, excellent, fresh! The Best Fajitas! Would highly recommend. And as for the ones who write "avoid dangerous area!" You can park right out front, and walk in. Never have any problems. Lived a few blocks down for a couple years, and never had any problems. No more dangerous then going to New York City for a good meal. Well worth it!

“Great restaurant, horrible location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2007

When I lived in the Lehigh Valley, this was one of my favorite restaurants. The service was wonderful & the food was great. You could also buy take out tortilla to take home. But, I must warn visitors who are not from the area, be very careful! This is a very dangerous area!

“Dangerous Area!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2007

We live just outside the Allentown area and have had food from La Mexicana at various festivals and it is quite good, but feel that persons from outside the area should be forewarned--this is one of the most dangerous areas of Allentown. We would not go there at night (and probably would avoid it during the day). This is the type of restaurant we would go to regularly if it were in a safer section.
