Happy find after trying many other Mexican restaurants in the Charleston area, La Nortena is a real gem. Warm welcome, speedy and attentive service, and really yummy food starting with a sampler dish with four salsas and moving on to great chicken, pork, and fish -- all tasty and at the right temperature and in very generous portions. This was a very satisfying meal, well worth prices that are a little higher than the average Mexican restaurant in the area. The menu has a wide range of items -- worth studying on the internet before going -- from simple tacos and regular pork and beef dishes to much more exotic items rarely seen on menus in this country. As another reviewer said -- "Stop reading and go eat!"
