Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with Mexican food. This little doggy could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner not to mention dessert, late night snacks, well you get the picture. Yesterday, my dear friend took me to Celia's in Lafayette...More

On the restaurant's website,they state that their goal is to provide natural and fresh home-style Mexican food with the best quality. Unfortunately despite having relatively nice servers, they have missed the mark on their main goal. The food was underwhelming at best and as others...More

Carnitas adobadas are excellent! They are fajitas without the drama. Fish tacos are excellent too. Staff is responsive, and are consistent throughout the chain. Do not come here for atmosphere or special beverages. The Lafayette location was formally the Cape Cod House. I like that...More

The food is that type of full-plate American comfort food type of Mexican food I grew up on. And although I later gravitated toward "hard-core authentic" Mexican food, I later got acid reflux and the "real thing" was too spicy for my system. So I...More

If you're looking for the traditional Mexican food place with all the regular goodies, this is it. Unlimited chips and salsa, great margaritas, delicious burritos, etc. Nothing "foodie" about this place--and that's a good thing! The service was excellent and the ambiance was typical Mexican....More
