“A Great Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We have eaten at countless Mexican restaurants from Texas through the Southwest and into California and La Tarasca holds its own with the best of them. The food was wonderfully prepared and just what one would wish for in its authenticity and flavor. The area it is located in is not known for its great Mexican fare but La Tarasca makes it a "must visit" kind of place. You will not be disappointed.

“Over rated”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I thought this restaurant was very over rated. I had heard from friends that it was the best...but I was disappointed. I won't go back. The food was ok but not exceptional.

“The best food ever!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I used to live near this restaurant and went at least once a month. Now that I live 2000 miles away, when I make a trip back home (near Centralia), I usually manage to fit in about three visits in three days. Fresh food, always delicious. I can't go to other Mexican restaurants anymore because it is just too disappointing. La Ta is the place.

“We liked it”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

We liked it. If you need chips, go elsewhere. Owner was there tonight and carefully told a family "we have no chips, we are not authentic to my part of Mexico."
They have marinated carrot wheels and salsa instead. Had a good tamale and chili relleno. Cute local cuisine. Saw no sign of any avacado, must not be authentic to their part of Mexico
