Delicious Mexican food in a small friendly cafe. The chicken fajitas were wonderful, lots of tasty meat, peppers and onions on homemade tortillas. Carnitas burrito also good, lots of tender meat. Very good chips and salsa. The server and host made us feel very welcome.

Passing through town, the gas station attendant recommended La Mexicana. We were seated and attended to promptly. The food was tasty- the enchilada reminded me of the homemade ones a friend's mom used to make. My friend had a flautas plate that she enjoyed immensely....More
