“Fantastic Margarhitas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

This is my main mexican restaurant and believe me I am within a mile either way of my house to a total of five other restaurants! But the food is excellent and the margarhitas are the absolute best around. I always ask for top shelf Tequilla and they know exactly how to make them they way I like them...staff is fast and friendly and they know when you are a regular and don't forget to always thank you for coming! I love everything on the menu but especially love their Salsa! Ole'

“Beat Expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2010

La Herradura is a very good Mexican restaurant. The flautas were delicious, but the tamales were average. The chips, salsa, and their infamous white sauce were all very good as well. I do not expect a lot from Mexican restaurants outside of the southwest, but La Herradura beat my expectations with a more than satisfying meal. I will definitely go back when I have a craving for Mexican food here on the East Coast. Service was fine. Price was good. The atmosphere was relaxed, but nothing special.

Though the menu is similar to other local Mexican restaurants, La Herradura's food is usually better. This location also has a great staff.

“Best little Mexican restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2010

This is a great place to go for lunch. The staff is friendly, the service is quick, and most importantly, the Mexican food is awesome. They serve salsa, 'white sauce', and chips for free. The Dos Eqis is always ice cold and everything on the menu is great. The atmosphere is basic, no mariachis or sprawling tequila selection, but if you're jonesing for a quesadilla, huevos rancheros, or soft tacos, you won't leave disappointed.

“Consistantly Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2009

My favorite Mexican restaurant in the area, don't want to go anywhere else, because I don't want to be disappointed, and it is only a few blocks from where I live so couldn't be more convenient. The Margaritas are outstanding, I usually go for the frozen, and they never skimp on the tequila. I usually go there for the fajitas, outstanding condiments that go with it including guacamole and a very good pico de gallo.

Service is always very fast and efficient, sometimes too fast maybe, and don't have time to get through the chips and salsa, two kind of salsa, the tomato based has a nice kick and cilantro added, there is a white salsa which is ok, but I prefer the other one.

Can't miss with this one.
