“Great Authentic Mexican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have been here a couple of more times recently and still my favorite for authentic Mexican. Tamale plate and the enchilada plate with rice & beans, yumm! My next visit I'll try the chili relleno. Consistently great food! The looks of the place are deceiving, if you desire good, house-made, authentic Mexican you have to give this place a try.

“Ok”

Had the carne asada burrito and my friend had the tacos. Huge huge portions!! Good value. It is ok for what it is but i prefer la sirenita for its pickle salsa bar.

“tasty and price is affordable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

we returned to la serenita, and try to come once a month. we had the soft tostada with black beans, and the fish burrito. so delicious. the staff always remember us, and one man i hadn't seen for years was there. i've watched him grow up before my eyes, and he greeted us like long lost friends. the price is right, and the portions are so generous. been coming here since the early to mid -ninties, and refer folks here all the time....

“the burrito fix”

street level burritos and such. good enough for a few bucks. location on Alberta Street is for sure the best advertising for this joint...

“Great, inexpensive, vegetarian, vegan friendly Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

I've been going here since 1994. The food is good! I love the vegetarian soft tostada with cilantro added. (Its a giant burrito) The green hot sauce is the best!
