We visited the restaurant at lunch with a group of five. We have been to this restaurant earlier in the year, and the server recognized us and almost remembered everything we ordered then. Our food was prepared to our specific requests. They do not fry anything here and are able to provide gluten- and dairy-free dishes which made our group... More

I actually made a TripAdvisor account just to review this restaurant. My husband and I just tried this place after my sister recommended it. We live half a mile from there and we figured why not. I was expecting the bland, American Mexican food that other places offer, but boy was I wrong. First off, I love the feel of... More

A true mom and pop restaurant. Space is limited. The staff is nice. The food is excellent. It is fresh, flavorful and served fresh off the grill. They were able to accommodate my vegetarian wife perfectly. We will be back.

We have used this restaurant to cater two parties and have been very pleased. They are very accommodating, arrive on time, and their food gets good reviews. We are right now trying to think of another occasion to use them.

This restaurant is a delight to go to. The entire family has helped make this place extra special. The food is consistently very good, has varied specials on menus, and made with love. Crystal runs the shop and does a lot of everything. Manny, is the cook and he does this very well! Crystal's teen age daughter is a cashier... More

La Tienda is our family's go to restaurant. The food is amazing, but the service is also always great. The close quarters let you know exactly who's making your food and it's consistently delicious!

The steak burrito is simple, but layers a lot of flavors. Highly recommend. I did not like the cheese dip, but my wife did. She also said the carnitas were amazing.

Had a sandwich. Huge thick bread no one could eat. Filling with cabbage and something else. Very forgettable. Pretty grimy place. I don't see where all these great reviews come from. Maybe I did not order the right stuff.

My husband and I shared the Carnitas. The carnitas were delicious! The re-fried beans (usually a boring side for me) were amazing! The staff/family/owners were very friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone. We were driving through (on I-35) so glad we jogged off the highway to give this place a try!

We started as a small grocery store in July of 2010 and have slowly morphed into more restaurant. We are aware that our "atmosphere" is not always the hippest, but our food is stellar. Manny and I (Christal) have focused on making our food as FRESH and as homestyle as we possibly can. We aren't your typical Mexican chain restaurant. Our current kitchen is teeny tiny, so when everyone comes in all at once, it takes a minute, but we crank food out as quickly as we can. WE LOVE TO MEET OUR CUSTOMERS! If you come back more than once, we consider you part of the family! The majority of our menu is prepared Gluten Free. Exceptions are if you order anything with a flour tortilla or the bread for a torta. We will happily accommodate food allergies, but you must alert your server to your needs and preferably ask to speak with me (Christal) about them. Thanks!
