We live about 30 miles away in Surprise, Arizona and friends who used to live there told us to check this place out. We took friends for a 30 minute road trip and it was well worth it. The first thing we noticed was the...More

La Canasta is truly a find -- it's a friendly, family-owned restaurant with a variety of authentic Mexican dishes. Conveniently, it's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

We discovered this restaurant by accident, and have eaten there twice. Both times we were very happy with the experience. The food is very good, and served piping hot. You order at the counter and they bring the food to the table. We especially liked...More

We were passing thru and needed to eat. Mexican sounded good, so stopped here. The daughter of the original owners greeted us. We ended up splitting a meal ($1.50 surcharge for two plates/split meal), but it met our needs. Food was really good and everyone...More
