“Best [only] authentic Mexican in Johnson City”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

La Perla is the best place to eat Mexican food in Johnson City. The menu has clear English descriptions of the food and there are photos around the dining room to help you choose. The ingredients are fresh and the guacamole is the best I have ever eaten. Don't expect the dumbed down TexMex food you usually get, this place is the real deal. My favorite is the enchilada ahogadas--4 enchiladas smothered in sauce and covered with a nice salad. They will even let you mix and match fillings so you can try 4 differnt enchiladas in one meal. The prices are great and when I'm on a budget I can have a beer and quesadilla for $5.
The salsa is made fresh daily and is a little different every time depending on the ingredients they have that day. Try the cactus!! you'll be pleasantly surprised.
The only downside is the buffet on the weekends. You'll find fresher food if you order a meal off the menu.
