“Great Mexican food, great prices!!! In a grocery store!”
Review of La Perla

La Perla
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 August 2016

La Perla has a few locations in SW Michigan. The one in Benton Harbor is great. It's a small restaurant in the back of a hipanic grocery store. They have some fairly standard items, but also some very traditional items like medudo. The salsa and sauces (red and green) are home made and are fabulous, all have a nice roasted flavor. I love the pork tacos mexicano, pork burrito and the chicken adobo.

The price is right and the Mexican tacos are on point. Anything you order from La Perla is going to have you leaving very happy and satisfied. We get Airbnb guests just about every weekend and we tell them about this place and David's Delis

The first thing to know is this place is a grocery store and restaurant in the back. You order from hanging menu at the counter, then go grab a seat. The food comes fairly fast. It is good and authentic. Prices are average, no cheap eats here. La Peria not to far off the highway either. Plenty of parking and seems to be a local favorite.
Would be a good quick fix for Mexican food. Nothing fancy here.

As described elsewhere, you stand in line to order (pick a language, Spanish or English), often fight for a place to sit, and there is nothing haute couture about the whole thing. But...the food is cheap and plentiful, the service is as good as it could be in all the chaos, and the food is soooo goooood. Authentic Mexican? Dunno. Seems close to what I've had down there, but who cares? It tastes great. A unique experience in Benton Harbor

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food, this place can not be beat. From the Tacos to Burritos and everything in between its simply the best. Everything is cooked to order with the freshest ingredients.
