Real authentic tasty plentiful fresh hot friendly Mexican food. I'm in the area with a few hundred friends each April for ten days and my wife and I make a point of getting out here at least a couple of times during our stay. Every time we go, there's a dozen of our friends here as well. There's a bit... More

We stopped for lunch. Seated right away. Good chips and salsa. Friendly service. I had a wet burrito. Large portion, good flavor. My wife had the relleno and said it was very good. The margarita was average but a good experience overall. Good value. Knowledgeable staff.

My wife and I ate there for dinner on Wed. night. They were fairly busy and we ended up waiting at the door for around 15 minutes. We were seated and greeted by our server within 5 minutes. We gave our order, that was it, we waited for close to 45 minutes for our food. When we finally got it,... More

My husband and I love LaGalera! The atmosphere is great, their chips and salsa are fantastic, margarita's are very good (especially the mango one). And of course the meals are delicious. I tend to order the chicken chimichanga.

This was a return visit, and still great food with quick friendly service. Mexican beer on tap served in ice cold mugs, and I noticed that a lot of people ordering the Margaritas, so they must be good maybe next time? We chose a combination diner, it was tasty a good portion and served hot. I forgot to mention when... More

We stopped in for lunch and boy are we glad we did! Started off with an ice cold beer - and munched on the complementary nachos and salsa whilst we waited for our Tacos de Carnitas and Beef Burrito Mexicano. Portions are very generous, flavour was excellent, service was fast and efficient and the meals came to us hot and... More

We eat here as often as we can (every few months). Meals start with corn chips and salsa, and there is nothing overpriced on the menu. Lunch specials are always good.

Love, Love, Love this place! I discovered this gem around 5 Years ago, and have never had a bad experience. I always get the #4 combo - 2 tacos, an enchilada and a Chile con queso for $7.95. What a deal! My family likes the seafood or shrimp dishes, and the sizzling fajita plates look amazing. The salsa has been... More

We are Canadians who love Mexican food, but can't get any in our community. We travel to Buffalo weekly though, and often stop in for takeout to bring home for the family. Good food, lots of selection, travels well and reasonably priced. You can't go wrong.
