“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Had lunch there with my wife today. The fish taco was excellent and lot's of food. My wife had the chicken enchillada verde and said it was excellent too. I've eaten at a lot of Mexican restaurants in the High Point/Greensboro area. This was the best I've had in the triad.

“Charge extra for everything!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We have eaten often at La Botana. The food is very good, however they want to charge extra for everything. We ordered and requested not to have guacamole, sour cream, or beans and asked for a little cheese and were charged .99.They also charge for extra tortillas. There are always many people working there, but the service is not very good. They do not always understand what you are ordering and argue with the customer about what they order! They need some work on customer service, this might bring them more business! Will think twice before returning again!

“Great vegetarian menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

My family is vegetarian and we love the extensive menu that La Botana has for us. It's not the 6 to 8 veggie combo plates of soupy enchiladas and bland tacos most Mexican restaurants have. There's at least 25 unique dishes to choose from on the vegetarian menu, many of them incorporating organic ingredients and tofu. I personally love their veggie fajitas but my partner tries something new every time. We've visited at least 10 times and never had a bad or even an okay meal. Everything has been good. Plus, their chunky guacamole is divine and their margaritas are delicious. Service is always friendly but it can get busy on weekend nights. You do have to ask for the veg menu if you want one.
