There was a fly on my rice. The shrimp cocktail had no flavor. The shrimp was really chewy. The hibiscus water wasn't fresh

First visit. Ordered a relleno crispy and a tamale. Both were tasty. Sauce was good and not overpowering. Wait staff very friendly. Will go back.

I love the Carne Asada and Shrimp, but know not to get it early in the morning. The times I've gone in the morning it seems like it's reheated food from the night before! Grose. Other than that love the beans and service!

La Botana is a small local style Mexican restaurant in Thornton, Colorado. It is a smaller restaurant that is busy most nights. The menu has quite a few items to choose from including some dishes you won't see in the typical chain style Mexico. Their guacamole appetizer is excellent. The margaritas are very good as well. All for a very... More

The food at La Botana is delicious and spicy. It is an authentic experience. The chips and salsa are unlimited and they hit the spot. They got my order wrong the last time I went but the food was still great, and they made sure to correct the mistake.

We celebrated my birthday there it was awesome, I ordered chicken fajitas which were the best I have ever tried. The place is small but cozy, we enjoyed playing the jukebox as we all enjoyed our delicious House Specialties. Fajitas there are now my must haves so we will be back before you know it.
