This was a winner! I stopped for lunch and was pleased with the decor. Unlike most Mexican restaurants were service is lacking, they were attentive and service was excellent. I ordered the chile verde which was some of the best I have had. The verde sauce was prepared fresh and flavorful whith some heat to it. The rice and beans were both very good. If there was room for improvement it would be the tortillas were packaged and not . The pork was pulled and not cubed which I think the pulled version is better anyway. This was ordered off the dinner menu and was still under $10.
This stop was worth the visit!

It seems that its just a touch of South of the Boarder. Wide variety of dishes available in your choice of chicken, pork or beef.

When you are seated the server will bring you chips and salsa. My wife likes to order the cheese dip which is very creamy and hot. We usually get one of the combination plates. If you order a taco you have a choice of hard shell, soft shell, or fried. I recommend the fried shells.
The chairs and tables are unique and were handcrafted in Mexico. Bar located in the front. La Mesa has 5 locations in the Council Bluffs/Omaha area. Best place to go for Mexican food in Council Bluffs, La Mesa is conveniently located off I 80/29 Exit 3.

This was our second trip to La Mesa in Council Bluffs and it was every bit as good as our first time there. The food was very tasty and the service was great. The combo plate I ordered was so much food it came out on two plates! This is one place I will stop on every trip I make to the area.
