I've been here three times and always order the molé. The second time, it was rather spicy, all times excellent. It is made in house, as are the tortillas which are out of this world. Regular boring rice and refried beans included but who cares? The first time I went the woman who I believe makes everything came out and watched us eat. Sweet waitresses. In a small rundown series of shops - which only makes it better.

This is my second visit to La Dona where I gave it another chance. I came back for the excellent enchiladas. Again, the service was slow where I waited 30 minutes for our food to arrive. This was on a Sunday at 12:30pm. 2 cooks for this size restaurant isn't enough. If you don't mind waiting and have nothing else to do but wait, the food is worth the wait

Quaint ambiance. Food was good and service polite and friendly. Traditional tostadas and burrito. Good portion for the price.

We had an excellent dinner here, there is a different special every night, the night we came it was the carnitas platter. Meat was tender and had good flavor (maybe a tad salty), the hand made corn tortillas were excellent, and the chips and salsa were some of the best we have ever had. Will be coming back to try the rest of their menu!

While being authentic this place was sort of just above average. The margueritas were fairly tame for the price. The enchiladas were almost sauceless. The beans contained meat of some sort so vegetarians beware. Nothing really jumped out as stellar. But there was nothing wrong with the food either. But from the reviews we were expecting more.
