“An experience you should try at least once”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

My husband and I had been hearing such good things about this place and thought we have to give it a try. It's definitely a quaint little hole in the wall. Luckily we went when it was off hours, thanks to someone's recommendation... very, very and I mean very limited seating. So if it's busy, expect to wait.

We ordered the Tostada Crisp ($3.25) it had tons of cheese on it... if your lactose intolerant you may want to pass on this one, but still it was pretty tasty never the less. For our entrée we each ordered a half size enchilada, one chicken the other beef ($6 ea.), we both thought the chicken was better.

For the full experience make sure you take a trip to the restroom. My husband had gone first to wash his hands and when he came back told me that I needed to go... I won't ruin it for you by telling you why, but it defiantly will give you something to talk about.

If were downtown and need to catch a casual meal we might go again, but it won't be the first on my list for Mexican in Sioux Falls.

“Midwest favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Such unique guacamole because they add a few olives...yum!! Enjoyed a spicier option but nice to have a mild option, too as I took my senior citizen mother. Such a nice touch to bring a basket of chocolate candies to your table as a parting gift !!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Really, the food makes up for the cramped location and average service. It's also reasonably priced. The atmosphere is neat, but it's a very small place and often crowded.

Definitely try it out during "off" hours.

“Cute Spanish enchilada house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Small downtown place with limited menu ( enchiladas and some apps) but food excellent. Sangria and beer too. It's a must visit if you travel there. In a sea of chain places Mama Ladas stands out.
