“Great Ambience for a Romantic Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Took a classmate and her husband to lunch and was surprised at the wonderful ambience of this restaurant. Very clean, tastefully decorated, wonderful service. Food a little bland, but good and a plus for the North part of Springfield.

“A good Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

The ambiance is nice, the food is good, and the service is steady. It is a little pricier than some Mexican restaurants.

“Please try this wonderful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a wonderful place. In a city with a multitude of Mexican restaurants, La Mision truly stands out. The menu has a great selection, the presentation and preparation are second to none, and the service is friendly and personable. On top of everything, La Mision has decor that makes you feel more like you are dining than just having a casual meal.

Can't recommend this one enough...definitely try the carne asada!

“Nice atmosphere but food lacks flavor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Encouraged by a recent newspaper review, we chose La Mision for dinner. We received a friendly greeting and were seated immediately in a booth in the dark but pleasant interior. We received the requisite chips and (not) hot sauce. Perhaps we could have requested a spicier salsa and next time we will certainly do that. My combo platter #1 had absolutely no seasoning whatever in the taco or the enchiladas or the rice. It was the blandest Mexican food ever! My companion reported his margarita on the rocks and burritos were "nothing memorable." However, the side order of 3 flour tortillas made on site, although they arrived late, were WONDERFUL. The service was pretty good and the prices were reasonable. We intend to give it another try, perhaps for lunch. Some Mexican restaurants are afraid to season food properly for unadventurous locals, but we are not those folks! Spice it up a little, please, La Mision!
