We were in town visiting family and they took us here for lunch! Wow the food was amazing! It's very small and we had to wait a while because it's so popular and a long line outside but they moved the line pretty fast and got the food out fast as well. Very good and would recommend it for sure!

Usually get them to go. Large burrito can give you two meals for little over $4.each. I usually get beef but chose chicken occassionally -- chicken is very moist and doesn't keep as well for a 2nd leftover meal.

LaJa's is very good authentic Mexican food! We enjoy going there for lunch on Sundays, however it is good at any time! Even midnight! Tacos and burritos are excellent!

Not a fancy restaurant, but who needs that when the food is delicious. You walk to the counter and order, he tells your to the people in the kitchen area, five minutes later you have delicious authentic tacos. My wife had two fish tacos and I had two steak tacos and we split and order of nachos, dinner for $12.... More

You order at the counter, then stand there and they grab it for you - in a flash! My (meatless) food was good. They offer dishes featuring about every part of every animal, all of which I passed on. Behind the counter, four people were working on an enormous pile of some kind of meat. It struck me as hilarious.... More

This is a Mexican restaurant. It is good and fast. They offer many particular dishes, like cow tongue and the insides of the cow as well. The food is good, if you like to try new foods.

One point taken off for the ambiance, but the food is amazing. I am so glad they've added shrimp tacos to their menu!

Super good home made burritos with great flavor made right before your eyes. Always busy, always good. I recommend before 5pm and after 8pm if you don't like crowds. Some of the best authentic Mexican food around!

A lot of locals know of this great Mexican restaurant. It's a little dingy on the inside but the food is out of this world. Everything is served phenomenally fast and will excite your tastebuds.
