One of the best Mexican food in Gainesville. The friendly and fast service, and the food is flavorful. The only place I can get tacos de lengua. So yummy!
Great Mexican food in modest surroundings. Food outstanding, service just fine, ambiance unpretentious. Great variety of meat fillings including chivo (pulled goat barbecue), Cabeza (beef cheeks), and Lengua (beef tongue), rarely seen elsewhere. Really Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Daily specials of classic and gourmet Mexican dishes.
This is real Mexican food, not someone with a can of refried beans and a can opener. The salsa is fresh and homemade, the service is excellent, and in nice weather you can sit on the covered porch. We stumbled upon this place during a college trip to the U of F. Unfortunately our son decided not to go there,... More
We just moved here from S. Florida in Dec 2012 and have been searching for a good Mexican restaurant. We tried a couple different restaurants but they were terrible. Then we found La Tienda and we were stunned at the freshness and quality of authentic mexican food. The prices are low and the Nacho's and taco's were out of this... More
I already got there twice. The food is outstanding, the staff certainly knows what they are doing in terms of flavor! The price is student friendly and the service is fast. Sometimes it gets a little crowded inside and it can get a little noisy (if that is something you consider important). Definitely not a chain restaurant, which I value... More
This restaurant is #1 on Yelp, and why it's not #1 here I have no idea. Listen to me. I have gone to this somewhat shady-looking, extremely colorful restaurant ATLEAST once a month since I first went. I had doubts, I was skeptical, until I have my first steak fajitas and decided that this place was #1 for a reason.... More
One of the best fast Mexican lunch stops ever. Everything is really fresh tasting. My favorite is the carnitas tacos.
Might be the best Mexican food I've had since leaving Santa Fe, NM. Don't let the casual atmosphere surprise you...the food is AMAZING. We love it. Servings are large, flavor-packed, and the restaurant is CLEAN. Enjoy.
Friends invited me to lunch here and I was shocked at the great food. Everything is very fresh and home-made. The chicken meat is hand pulled for the tacos/burritos, etc. All fresh vegetables prepared on site. A lot of food and a reasonable price. Take a good look at the menu, there are lots of options, and also pay attention... More
This place was phenomenal and that is coming from someone who lived in TX for 12 yrs.I would definitely recommend this place if you like Hispanic food!! It is a fast food style restaurant, order at the counter so you save $$ with sit down quality food.
