“Decent Mexican food”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Nothing special but also no complaints. We've always gotten good service. The food is decent but I've had better, and I've had worse. Pretty typical Mexican food for mid-Missouri.

“Worth the drive”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Mexican restaurants abound these days, but good ones are hard to find. Found this one by accident. The food? The taste of Jalisco predominantly which I like. The three signature dishes I always try when evaluating a Mexican restaurant are: caldo pollo, carnitas, and tamales. The caldo pollo at La Hacienda is one of the best I've tasted outside of Mexico. Carnitas and tamales are always an indicator as there are a thousand ways to make them badly. La Hacienda scores very well on both counts. Fish tacos, still my beating heart!!! The table salsa is tame but they keep the real stuff in the back for the cognoscenti who ask for it. Unlike some of the other reviews, I have always had superb service. Try speaking in Spanish.

“Great cheap margaritas...”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

But dirty and lax service even out the thrill of cheap liquor! Heehee! The food is hit and miss! But go on Fridays!

“A great restaurant in a little river town.”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

La Hacienda has great Mexican food and very reasonable prices. Lots of food per serving and the servers are very respectful, especially the way the locals treat them...which isn't very good. We have NEVER had any bad food, everything on the menu is fresh and the presentation is good. You will find coupons in the local papers but the prices are so reasonable a couple of $ doesn't matter. They also have a punch card for the 10th meal free. You won't be disappointed.Kid friendly too.
