Very good Mexican food in the ghetto of Allentown. They only accept cash so be prepared. The chorizo tacos are excellent.

We stopped here while returning to the Philadelphia area-El Azteca as the testaurant is now called, is a very pleasant place with good, home-cooked Mexican food. The Enchiladas were spiced just right and there was no skimping on the cheese and the burrito was giant sized and was bursting at the seams. The Salsa was clearly home made and was... More

After reading the 5 stars review in trip advisor, my wife and I visited the place. We were really disappointed by the place. It is really run down and service is bad.

I have tried several other Mexican restaurants in the Allentown/Bethlehem area and La Mexicana tops the list. Antonio is the most personable waiter I've ever encountered at a restaurant.

This place was OK but pricey for what you get and the food seemed weirdly non-authntic.

Food is truly authentic, excellent, fresh! The Best Fajitas! Would highly recommend. And as for the ones who write "avoid dangerous area!" You can park right out front, and walk in. Never have any problems. Lived a few blocks down for a couple years, and never had any problems. No more dangerous then going to New York City for a... More

When I lived in the Lehigh Valley, this was one of my favorite restaurants. The service was wonderful & the food was great. You could also buy take out tortilla to take home. But, I must warn visitors who are not from the area, be very careful! This is a very dangerous area!
