I have been eating at Efrain's for years. If you are looking for something fancy, this is NOT the place. This is a "hole in the wall" type place that has tremendous food. And the margaritas are wonderful. They are often very busy, so if...More

Efrain's in Lafayette is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. You can tell by how busy it always is that we are not the only ones. Their margaritas are very good and I particularly like their beef burrito with the 'green salsa'. (If you like...More

Have visited the area regularly for years and never been disappointed. Simple setting with friendly service. Good margaritas and Mexican beers. A fairly standard menu with a variety of hotness available to satsify different tastes. Quality is good as far as chips, salsa, burritos, rellenos,...More

This Local Standby and Favorite for many years continues to put out authentic traditional Mexican food, in a busy but comfortable setting. They provide delicious choices of hot favorites with loads of Cheese, Sauces, and all the things that make Mexican Food Classic.

The perfect Mexican restaurant for a quiet and absolutely delicious lunch. Large portions, excellent quality, and quick professional service - who needs more? I particularly liked the Rellenos.

Still enjoy Efrain's after all the years. I could only categorize this as comfort food. Lots of sauce, cheese, and fried stuff. Very low spice levels here compared to many places these days. I find myself at lunch here frequently, but almost never for dinner....More
