Fantastic food! We came for dinner at six and had to wait over an hour but was worth the wait. Service was great and fast when we were finally seated. They also had great choices for kids meals.

Visiting family in SF and they took us to LaChoza. The service was good, drinks delicious and a fun atmosphere. The food was very good but beware, some of the sauces are really hot. Would recommend.
