Been here too many times to remember since my last review. The food is always good, usually pretty quick and always leave full. Burrito with shredded beef is a current favourite, excellent value for money too.

A great local Mexican in Bulimba. We went late afternoon, as lunch and dinner can be busy - best to book. The meals were generous and well priced.

We have been here at least three times over the years and every time it's been great food and service. It is good quality mexican food with real meat. Looking forward to returning again in the future.

Our favourite Mexican restaurant. We have been here several times and it's always very enjoyable. The albondigas (meat ball) starter are the best. Seriously try them! I usually get the la Quinta ensalada, I have tried it with all varieties of toppings and the steak is my personal fav. The frozen margarita is awesome too, probably wouldn't drive after it... More

I had dinner with friends and while the service was quick, the food was really disappointing and definitely not authentic Mexican food. I ordered the bbq chicken nachos which I thought would be chicken cooked on a BBQ and instead it was chicken strips in a BBQ sauce. The corn chips were soggy and resembled porridge of corn chips with... More

Booked for the family at La Quinta based on many great past visits to find we were seated in the Southern American restaurant next door complete with an American menu, water served in an empty Jack Daniels bottle and a cow skulls hanging on the walls. Crammed into a tiny space where even the wait staff could not make it... More

Always very busy, we decided to try it on a Saturday night and we sat very quickly. Lovely different types of margaritas go very well along with spicy real Mexican food. We had enchiladas and pork carnitas, I'm looking forward to trying the rest of the menu.

We have often attended this Restaurant and it never disappoints. A favourite of ours is the Salad in the crispy tortilla bowl. It feeds my wife and I for less than $20. It is amazing but no matter what we choose we have never been disappointed. Service is quick however it is usually very busy and quite noisy.

On a very hot Friday night, the aircon wasn't coping with the crowd which was filling every space in this restaurant. It was very hot & stuffy & you really couldn't hear yourself think because it was so crowded. The food was quite tasty but two meals came without the promised rice described in the menu & we had trouble... More
