Second time here and it was just as delicious as the first time. Plenty of parking in the easy-to-find strip mall at Flintridge and Academy, and it's a medium-sized space. Not very busy when we were in there, but business appeared steady with customers coming...More

When we walked in, we almost had to pinch our noses. It smelled like a nail salon! Don't know if it was from the beauty shop next door or newly installed carpet or what. Not a good start. We started with a cheese dip which...More

The best. Friendly service. Delicious sauces. Fresh and amazingly light mexican fare. Great house Margaritas. Was there for dinner and couldn't stay away the next day for lunch. Have dined there several times and never been disappointed.

I have been to La Perla Tapatia twice now. I totally agree with the previous poster that this is not your usual Mexican place, where everything tastes the same as the other places down the road. First time I went I ordered the Tortas Ahogadas,...More

I must admit, whenever someone mentions Mexican I always immediately think...yummy! Crisp warm chips, fresh salsa and a refreshing margarita--what more could one ask for!?! I know it doesn't sound like I have discriminating taste, but growing up in Arizona, I was exposed to some...More
