We frequent La Esperanza as often as we can. Lunch or dinner both are good. And they have daily 5 dollar margaritas. All kinds from authentic margaritas to bloid orange. All are very good.

It's ok if you don't have anywhere else to go and want to try something other than Italian. But to people such as myself the food is like my grandmother's food, sustainable. I said all this with all the respect to my grandma's cooking. But her strength was not the kitchen. The steak is over cook, the spices other than... More

I can not say enough good things about La Esperanza, we had heard a lot of great reviews and had to stop and boy were we happy. No disappointment here. The guacamole app is large so make sure you share. We both had the Cinco platter and it was more than enough. Tortilla soup to go and it was fabulous.... More

My favorite thing to get whenever I eat here is the Fat Alex. It is a massive burrito that will fill you up and send you home with plenty of leftovers. Make sure you get the chills sauces to pour on there as well!

My wife took me and another couple to this place. The food was incredible! Great flavor and atmosphere. The drinks were good. The bartender really knew a lot about the different tequilia's. They were cheap too, compared to any other restaurant of this caliber. I highly recommend this place. The fajitas are amazing. Now its one of our favorite spots.... More

Was told 40 minute wait, but was over 1 hr. Then tables were seated after us and got their food way before us. I think they forgot about us. Food was good but overall experience was bad.

When we get a chance to get together without the kids, we wanted to try a place none of us had been before. We were seated quickly, ordered quickly. House margaritas were yummy and cheap ($5). Food was good, and there was definitely enough to take home. Our waitress wasn't all that attentive, we probably would have had more margaritas,... More

One of our favorite restaurants, and not just within the category of Mexican food. They serve consistently delicious Mexican dishes. The buzz is that it's "authentic," but not being Mexican, we can't vouch for this claim. However, the food is several notches above Baja Fresh or On the Border. The service is extremely friendly and accurate. Our server knows our... More
