“Fav Authentic Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2007

I have been dining at La Altena since it was a single room. It is very good and very authentic. I eat there on a regular basis and have NEVER been dissatisfied.

“We Also Love the Staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2007

We only go to La Altena when we want Mexican food. They have great Margaritas and great Salsa. Our favorite dishes are the paztor and Mojado Burrito. The staff is very friendly too.

“Authentic Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2006

Dined here because a friend said it's the best Mexican restaurant in the SouthEast. I agree! Food and service were great and prices are loooow! Try the Carne Asada and the Guacamloe. You won't be disappointed.

“BEST MEXICAN FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2005

La Altena has the best authentic Mexican food I've ever had. When we lived in the area, we were regulars to this restaurant. Guacomole is fresh, made to order. The local Mexican population dines here. This is a fabulous place to enjoy real Mexican food!!!!
