Went here for lunch, and service and food is not good. Woman did not smile and just took us the table, salsa taste like out of the jar, sweet and bland. I ordered shrimp enchilada and my shrimp is cold and bland. Ordered Iced tea...but they ran out of it. My daughter ordered chicken taco salad and again tasteless. Don't waste your money, I will try Dos Amigos next door next time.More

I'm typically against spending more than $1 for a can of beans and enjoy throwing chicken into rice myself but La Hacienda makes a decent case for going all out and enjoying a chill Southern atmosphere, great service, and a variety of menu items and...beverages. It's smart to use the Hooked app for deals! However I'm more for El Torito for local spots doing up Mexican. There is a lot offered here in a nice easy to get to location. I love the quesadillas and nachos - doesn't seem to be tricked much to America palates. Been here twice and hope to return.More

So-So. Chips and salsa were bland. Roasted pork taco was oily. Service was disorganized. Table was sticky. Had to ask for silverware after our entres came. Does serve alcohol. Most everything over $10/plate

Met friends here for lunch while passing thru town en route to Illinois. Seemed to be a popular place judging by the crowd. Lunch special menu offered a decent variety at a reasonable price in my opinion. Though I've had tastier Mexican food, it was...good but what truly impressed me was how fast our meals came. Very good overall. Decor inside was bright and cheerful.More

This is the worst Mexican I’ve eaten and not cheap. Skip it. Both meals were inedible. Salsa not even good

Busy saturday night, but we were seated right away (nice). Chips and salsa were delivered along with waters and then the service stopped. We waited and watched the server pass us numerous times, avoiding eye contact each time. After waiting for 15 minutes, we decided...to leave. Went across the street to “Nine Irish Brothers” and had wonderful service and great food, so all was not lost on our last evening visiting our college son.More

New in the area and stopped in here on a icy weather night. We were seated right away and served delicious hot meals quickly. The portion sizes were filling. We'd definitely go back.

Took our daughter out for Sunday evening dinner. Greeted by friendly cashier. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive and gave excellent advise on the menu items. CHips and salsa was very good, queso was even better. Excellent burrito, nahcos & Arroz Texano (the best!).

this restaurant used to be our favorite Mexican ...but since the management was changed, the food, value has changed. The bathrooms are disgusting.

La Hacienda is just down the hill from Purdue, and worth the walk. Friendly, spacious, and efficient. Good food and well-spiced salsas. A great place to kick back and enjoy.
