My husband has been raving about this restaurant and it's fantastic street tacos. He was on the money. This place is a gem tucked in a little strip. The staff are very friendly and it's very clean. I have had the street tacos, tostada and enchilada and all were fantastic. Everything is made to order. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I ate lunch here today. We both had the enchiladas verdes, with beans and rice. I was pleased the enchiladas contains nice pieces of chicken which seemed very fresh. The beans were mushy, but very tasty, not greasy as some restaurants prepare them. The rice was fine. The place is very small, but with a bright orange... More

Eat here all of the time. Not much of a dining room but the food makes it all worth it. Best Mexican food without the drive into Pontiac. I constantly recommend this place to anyone that I can. Good food, reasonably priced and consistent with their recipe's.

They have a small dining room but we live close by so we always get carry out. Food is delicious and service is fast. It's great have a place with good Mexican so close!

I have had several of their items. My favorite is the veggie burrito. They use fresh ingredients and everything tastes great!

The food is really good. It's had to find a place that will actually make a botana anymore. Theirs is great! The hot salsa is both hot and flavorful.

Whenever we have a hankering for Mexican, we're at La Botana. What the restaurant lacks in space it makes up for in quality food done well. The staff and cooks are fun to talk to and very helpful.

Since I moved from Los Angeles I have hoped to find food comparable to the neighborhood taquaria. This is the best by far. I'm going to be a regular for a long time. My wife and I had enchiladas verdes and rojas. The salsa verdes (tomatillo) that I had is bright and fresh, better than mine (I haven't said that... More

Wow, what a pleasant surprise finding such good authentic Mexican in northeast Troy. It's a bit different as you order at the counter for either carry out or dining in at the few tables available. Chips and salsa quite good and guacamole (extra) very vet good. We had the chicken enchiladas dinner ( signature dish) and chicken gordita dinner. Superb... More

Hands down, this is the best Mexican restaurant in the area. Mexican town food without the drive downtown. The traditional tacos with shredded chicken are simple and delicious. The Mexican nachos are delicious. As a bonus the couple that own La Botana are so friendly. Give it a try.
