We stopped in for lunch and boy are we glad we did! Started off with an ice cold beer - and munched on the complementary nachos and salsa whilst we waited for our Tacos de Carnitas and Beef Burrito Mexicano. Portions are very generous, flavour was excellent, service was fast and efficient and the meals came to us hot and... More

We eat here as often as we can (every few months). Meals start with corn chips and salsa, and there is nothing overpriced on the menu. Lunch specials are always good.

Love, Love, Love this place! I discovered this gem around 5 Years ago, and have never had a bad experience. I always get the #4 combo - 2 tacos, an enchilada and a Chile con queso for $7.95. What a deal! My family likes the seafood or shrimp dishes, and the sizzling fajita plates look amazing. The salsa has been... More

We are Canadians who love Mexican food, but can't get any in our community. We travel to Buffalo weekly though, and often stop in for takeout to bring home for the family. Good food, lots of selection, travels well and reasonably priced. You can't go wrong.

We had lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The selections are awesome, the atmosphere was great and the staff was exceptional. We received excellent attention upon arrival and every request was honored quickly. I'm from Texas and must say this is as good as I could have expected. Thanks for everything.

I eat at La Galera regularly. Hot, fresh chips and salsa are delivered immediately once you are seated. The service is excellent and the food comes out very quickly, even when the restaurant is busy. The prices are extremely reasonable and the menu has a wide selection of items. The fried ice cream is delicious and the margaritas are very... More
