La Piñata Mexican is the real deal authentic Mexican Restaurant. Excellent food, great service, inexpensive, and something for everyone, easy access on and off the interstate.

Eat here all the time with family. We really enjoy it. I usually order off the vegetarian menu. Good for big families!

We went here on a Sunday after church. The wait time was a little long but food was hot and fresh once we were able to order. I would eat here again but not on a Sunday after church.

Good food, served quickly. They have Margaritas in small medium and large. Large comes in a glass with a circumference equal to a personal pizza. Large = Huge

We usually eat at El Norte when we are in Meridian. This time El Norte was closed and La Pinata was near to our hotel. Clean, good food and good service. Overall good value for money. I'll go back when in Meridian again.
