Great food and extra great service. Like most reviewers state, the outside looks of the place are deceiving.... inside is not fancy but is neat and clean..... food is authentic and homemade in quality.... and the quality and portion size is a step above excellent!...More

Food smelled wonderful. Huge amount of food that I couldn't finish. The steak burrito was fabulous. Make sure to bring a cooler with ice to pack up the left overs. Reasonable prices and will definitely ride our motorcycles out this way again.

It's a little rough on the outside but the food is good. The burritos are bigger than most appetites and stuffed full.

I have never seen a bigger burrito in my life! I was taken in by this food item and found the other items quite edible. The place doesn't look very much from the outside, but it's what they serve that counts!

My coworker picked us up some guacamole and chips today. She said they made it fresh after she ordered it. Absolutely delicious!

I was craving tacos and a trip to Cincinnati or Dayton or Indianapolis seemed out of the question with the $0.30 price hike on gasoline since the weekend. La Mexicana has awesome tacos. I can put them up against those from El Rodeo and Hacienda...More

The food was great and the service very friendly. The outside appearance is less than stellar but the inside was very clean. Earlham College student choice. We got the tip on La Mexicana from one of the student admissCollege and believe that this must be a popular "cheap eats" choice for students looking for something other than cafeteria fare.
