We have been going to this great little Mexican restaurant for about 2 years. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but this humble former motel coffee shop serves some of the best Mexican food we've tasted outside of California or Mexico! Service is always friendly and efficient. Delicious complimentary chips and salsa are set on the table within moments of sitting down. And that ice cold beer (Corona, Dos Equis, Tecate) takes only a moment or two longer. The menu has many choices, and lots of combination dinners - great if you want to try a selection of items. A favourite of ours is the Enchiladas Rancheras "two cheese enchiladas topped with beef tips or chicken (chicken is really great), served with guacamole salad and beans", and those refried beans come on a separate plate topped with melted cheese. Delicious, and only $6.95! Another favourite is a couple of chicken tostadas from the A La Carte menu, a great light dinner at only $3.00 a piece. Most combination dinners range in price from $6.95 to $7.65, and you choose from many different combos which could include chili rellenos, burritos, tacos, enchiladas, chalupas, or even fantastic tamales. For us, La Galera is a place for a great quick dinner, or a great night out with friends. We recently attended a dinner with 20 people in our party, and we were so impressed with the service. Every single person in our party got their order right, and was served in a timely fashion. We can't recommend La Galera highly enough, for us, it's worth the drive from Canada!

For those who have traveled to the southwest, you'll enjoy the authentic Mexican food and for those who only know 'chain restaurant' Mexican food, this change will be a pleasant treat!

I was suprised to find real Tex/Mex food in Niagara Falls. The food is fantastic, even the lunch plates are more than filling. Service is perfect. We were seated immediately with chips and dip on the table within a minute. Food was delivered very quickly and prices are fantastic. We have been going since their opening and always have lunch or dinner (sometimes both) every time we go to Niagara Falls.

An authentic mexican restaurant in Niagara Falls. This place is fairly new; they have only been open for about 2 years now. The atmosphere is pleasant, the service is fast, and the food is great! Oh, and the prices really can't be beat!
