I have been here about 5 times. It is close to a house we rent with a group of ladies. Decent drink specials, chips are ok (not a big fan of the salsa). I think the food is just ok. Super fast...honestly might be one of the fastest I have been. (Which may or may not be a good thing).... More

Our service was excellent. The food was delicious. The chips and salsa were kept full. That's what's important. Yummy!!! Nachos feed two people and the chicken chimi is tasty.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican, this is not the place. But if you want to relax with friends while eating endless chips & salsa and drinking delicious margaritas...then this is the place. Outdoor seating, great atmosphere, some awesome servers (ask for Lynsey).

My Husband and I come to The Hacienda every year for our Anniversary. The frozen margaritas are great. This year the white cheese dip was much to spicy hot for me and the seafood taco salad was disappointing, barely any seafood in it, mostly lettuce and a stale taco shell.

We chose this restaurant as we didn't think it would be as busy as others on a Friday night. It was too busy. Food was mediocre. I don't care for the salsa; it reminds me of tomato soup. Chicken dish was bland, although family enjoyed chicken salads. Nothing overly exciting about the place.

Saturday, September 17th, we went out for a birthday celebration. The restaurant was very crowded so we sat outside on the patio. Our server was very good, even though she was very busy It was loud and hard to hear each other. I ordered the bone in chicken wings and fries. When the orders came, I had gotten boneless wings....

We have dined here several times while in the area. The food is always good. I love the dessert -- I always get the hot chocolate chip cookies with ice cream!!! The restaurant looks like they will charge you a lot, but the prices are very reasonable. The last time we were there (Aug 2016), we had our food within... More

Check for specials like cheap margarita night. It's a very busy, noisy family outing place. The white chicken chili is pretty reliable.

We just happened across this location as we were driving around Michigan City looking for some places I used to go years ago. We were hungry, and it looked like a nice place so we stopped. Very happy we did! Good food, great atmosphere, and nice staff. The only thing lacking to me was authentic music. Too much "pop" music... More
