Ordered the LaPagua salad, which was totally tasteless (other than a fatty taste from the meat). Service was horrible. We mentioned to the waiter how tasteless our salads were and all he did was agree. When paying $10.95 for a salad you also expect more than a commercially prepared salad dressing in a pouch.

We ate at La Pagua on Sunday afternoon about 1 pm and this place was packed with people waiting outside for about 20 minutes for a table This is not the first time I have eaten here but this is the first time it was packed so late for lunch. The service was great. Our waitress never forgot about us... More

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Lafayette Louisiana. The food is always fresh. I particularly like the steak fajitas and the chicken enchilada with suiza sauce! And what a treat to have breakfast there! Go ahead - next time you are in the mood for Mexican, go to La Pagua's.

It was cold outside and I was in the mood for soup, so I tried the Chicken Tortilla Soup. It was delicious with a rich broth and large chunks of vegetables. Because it only comes in one medium sized bowl, I ordered the beef tongue taco on the side. It was suggested to me by friends and proved to be... More

I saw some reviews prior to eating here, declaring this the best Mexican restaurant in Lafayette, LA. I had high expectations, and they were met. The prices are lower and the quality better than the chain Mexican places that we have.

We usually go here to eat after church on Sundays. I love the nachos with lengua put on them. Service may be a little slow at times but we still love this place.

I loved the food here. I had the Shrimp Fajitas. So, the fajitas were not what I thought they were going to be. This dish was served with a roasted onion as opposed to the onion/pepper combo that I am accustomed to seeing. Everything was delicious. The service was a bit slow, but we arrived shortly before closing. My co-worker... More

Came to this restaurant as a little hole in the wall, and now has expanded in a new and larger location. Normally I'll get chorizo, huevos for dinner. We tried the cheese enchiladas and pork tamales. All meals were very hot and tasty. The pork tamales were moist and tender. The hard shell tacos were stuffed with healthy portion of... More

We went with another couple, it was our first visit there. Place was packed but moving along quickly. We were seated, and got drinks brought to us from the bar by our server. Very good. Our food was great, our server was attentive. It was a real busy place, lots of people............. so it was kind of loud in there.... More

Hands down the best authentic Mexican food I've ever had. And SUPER cheap. Their tacos are incredibly unique and definitely a favorite. I've eaten here over 10 times and have not had one single bad dish. Service is impeccable too- very knowledgable staff. Salsa is the best I've bee tried and the Cadillac margarita is special!
