We have often attended this Restaurant and it never disappoints. A favourite of ours is the Salad in the crispy tortilla bowl. It feeds my wife and I for less than $20. It is amazing but no matter what we choose we have never been disappointed. Service is quick however it is usually very busy and quite noisy.

We love La Quinta great food great service great atmosphere. I always get the La Quinta Chunky Chilli so yummy. We have tried nearly every item on the menu fabulous. Drinks are also great margarita baby. Recommend booking as they are always busy it is worth it.

On a very hot Friday night, the aircon wasn't coping with the crowd which was filling every space in this restaurant. It was very hot & stuffy & you really couldn't hear yourself think because it was so crowded. The food was quite tasty but two meals came without the promised rice described in the menu & we had trouble... More

The restaurant was full the whole time we were there which is usually a good indication that the locals enjoy eating here. The menu was extensive with something to suit all tastes. It has the usual mexican favourites, but it also has some of the delicious but lesser know mexican dishes. the portion sizes were very generous making the meals... More

Third, fourth no fifth visit I think, doesn't matter. The quick service and food doesn't change. Generous helpings and tasty food is the norm. Noisy place but that's because it's so full of patrons having a good time.

food is good, consistent, fast service and great drinks. Very true to Mexican style. Favourite is the chimichanga but food is always good.

Food is always out fast and in huge amounts! Love the margaritas. Have never had a bad meal there. Run very efficiently and has a good atmosphere. Staff are friendly and efficient. We really like the flag-raising technique to get their attention!

I've always wondered why people like Mexican food, in my experience it's just stodgy, heavy, over cooked cheap starchy crap, until I discovered this restaurant! So tasty, fresh flavours and excellent value, especially the margaritas. Try it, you'll be glad you did.
