It serves standard American style Mexican food. No real flavor or spiceiness. The rice and beans had flavor the beef enchilada was flavorless too. The salsa was bland and neede some spice or salt or something, It just needed some flavor. There are much better Mexican dive joints with real authentic food with some flavor and kick in it.

My most favorite Mexican Restaurant in Chico with the best Tostadas - I have been coming here since 1970 - we all have been fans of this place and celebrated anything, anytime here!!! The Tostadas used to be mountains of crisp lettuce and the cheese extra plenty, with ground beef or chicken or etc.... smothered in this delicious 'secret' sauce,... More

I've been going here since I was little and the restaurant was only the main part of the dinning room now. They are known for their Tostadas and the dressing they use for it. You can even buy the salad dressing and take it home. I often order the rice tostada, though there are many options. I also really like... More

This is our favorite Mexican food place in Chico. You have GOT, to get the Feasta Surpreme salad. A salad in a bowl you can eat. But the beat of all....their special sauce. You can buy it to go and make your own dinner at home. Also their salsa is available to take home. It is the best in town.... More

We have lived in chico for over a decade and La Hacienda was always the place to go for one of the house special Tostadas. Unfortunately tonight was one of the worst quality and services nights ever. Couldn't get service we finally had to ask. One dinner served with wrong sides, brought back correctly and cold. So much ice in... More

After being ignored last Saturday at Tortilla Flats (which we almost thought was closed because there were so few cars in the lot) we decided to give La Hacienda (just a few doors down) a try. They definitely had a much fuller parking lot (a good sign), and we were seated, given water, chips and salsa within a few minutes.... More

La Hacienda has been in Chico for many years. Whenever we come to visit family this is the Mexican restaurant of choice. My favorite in the original tostada the Chico favorite.
