Inviting, hospitable, laid back mom & pop establisment. I ordered the juicy Shrimp Taco, peanut butter cookie and fresh fruit juice all under $15. I will surely support this spot in the future. Thanks for the experience!

We come weekly if we are in town. It's my go to place for a good lunch. Be sure to try the home made guacamole and chips. Everything we've ever had here is very good.

Start with the Guacamole you won't be disappointed. Then get the Sopas, California Burrito or torta sandwich. Be sure to save room for Mexican wedding cookies. Bring more cookies home. The mango drink is good as well. Our favorite in expensive good Mexican place. !!!

I ate at many Mexican restaurants looking for the best. La Mexicana is the winner. Loved it so much. I've been going, regularly, a year now.

Fantastic, authentic tacos. I tried the steak and carnitas tacos, and they were hit, fresh, and delicious. If you like real Mexican tacos, you have to try this place.

Always complaining about the strange dearth of good Mexican food in Alexandria? Look no further. This little bakery/cafe will surprise you. It doesn't look like much and it's in a down & out little strip mall off Richmond Highway in Hybla Valley. However, I went...More

We were looking for an authentic Mexican place and found this on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! I'm from the West Coast and grew up with authentic Mexican food. Not Peruvian, not Salvadoran--Mexican. This is probably the best I have had in the area. Likely...More
