We were looking for someplace different to eat and found this on Trip Advisor. But when we drove up , it looked like a bar. We almost left but decided it was too early for even a bar to be rowdy. Inside it was a quite nice family restaurant! Most flexible menu I have ever seen with typical options and... More

Great place to get some good Mexican food for a great price. The free chips and salsa are great. The service is always fast and pleasant. And you can catch up on your Telemundo Soap Operas while you are eating ;)

Having lived in CO and CA, where Mexican restaurants are plentiful, we found this very clean place to be as good or better. I ordered chicken mole with rice and beans and it was the best mole I’ve ever eaten. The chicken was very tender and the sauce not too hot nor too spicy-perfection! My husband had the carnitas dish,... More

We love eating at La Hacienda! The food is cheap but fantastic. Family owned and operated. The Chimichanga with rice should be a Class 1 controlled substance...LOL!

I lived in Mexico for two years (but a palatka native) and normally the tacos they serve in the US are crap compared to the real thing you get down there. But this place offers real tacos on fresh made corn tortillas (the only ones that taste good) and the meat is cooked perfectly. This is a great place! Try... More

To me, this is the place to go for good Mexican food around town. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. Not fast food...it's all fresh and cooked right there. They also have beer and sangria! The inside is cozy with lots of windows.

I travel to Central Florida frequently and am always pleased to eat at this longstanding restaurant in the iconic little city of Palatka. In what was once a Pizza Hut (yes, I ate there 40 years ago, too) the owners craft offerings that appeal to locals yet maintain the authentic Mexican dishes that I love. My favorite here is the...

Good food, pretty authentic Mex. Neighborhoods a little sketchy, but food and service was good. Better than the chain Mexican restaurants. I'd eat there again, glady.

The place looks a little run down. The server was pleasant enough. The food was decent, average Mexican food. $29 for 3 people with no drinks for lunch.

The food was hot and delicious. Nothing special. The prices were high for Palatka. You only get one bowel of salsa and chips with your meal. Extra chips cost more. How cheap can you get when the entrée prices are high. Almost all Mexican restaurants I go to have unlimited free chips. You can get that Chili's up the road.... More
