Finding authentic Mexican food is hard in this area. I was very pleased to see the place was VERY Mexican. My son and I ordered the lunch portion fajitas. I also had the peach margarita. After all the free chips and salsa we were only able to eat one fajita. Cindy was our server and was prompt and knowledgeable about... More

Though the music was a little loud, we enjoyed our visit to this restaurant very much. Our waitress was very helpful and took time to explain things. The food was tasty and the portions plentiful. Photo of our dessert.

I must say, I had mexican food only once before, and I was a little afraid because my first experience was not perfect. La Galera, however, made me love mexican food! I ordered a combo meal so I could have different things on my plate to try. Liked everything. The place is also cosy with fun designs of the booths,... More

The food was good and the service was great. They were fast which was nice since we trying to get to see the fireworks at Niagara Falls. Would definitely recommend the margaritas.

You don't expect to find quality original Mexican food close to the Niagara Falls but this was it. Great food, great prices and just a fun place to be. Highly recommended
