We finally made it over to the south side of town to try out La Altena. We're BIG fans of the La Altena in Chattanooga (I think it's the best AUTHENTIC Mexican in the greater Chattanooga area), so...anyway, we decided to check out THIS La Altena. Stopped in on a Saturday evening around 7pm and the place was packed to the door. We had to wait until a table could be cleared for us (me, wife and another couple) could get a seat.
Service, as you might expect due to the crowd, was a little on the slow side. But, we soon got waited on. The traditional salsa and chips were very good. I thought the salsa had a better flavor than what I'm used to getting at most Mexican restaurants. The menu is pretty much typical of what you would find in most U.S. Mexican restaurants. Our group each had something different but, the meals were well prepared and served quickly despite the full house.
Overall, this was a good experience and we had no complaints. Would I recommend it....absolutely. If you're on the south side of Cleveland (or, if you don't mind a few extra minutes of travel) I'd suggest you give La Altena a try!
