I'm not sure what makes all the reviews do great here. It's old and tired but it's average Mexican food. I'm not down on it but it's average. I do like the sour cream chicken enchiladas. The cheese dip is also good.

La Paz used to be one of my favorite places to eat, but lately the quality has been fair. The food used to come out on steaming hot plates filled with great Mexican food selections. Tonight, the food was mediocre. The guacamole was hard to find on the plate, the portion of pico was very small and the beans were... More

La Paz never disappoints. My wife and I eat there somewhat regularly and have always had very delicious meals. Go there today!

This is my third visit to La Paz. I like to stop here when we visit Lincoln and take a trip to Gateway Mall (it is just around the corner). The food is reasonably priced and is alway delicious.

Great Mexican food: We like the tacos, enchiladas, and the Fajitas. Great margaritas, but they are a bit small for $7-8. Service is usually good unless it is very crowded and you may have to wait a bit longer, but it is worth it. Plenty of parking out back. Casual atmosphere.

Went to La Paz with my husband and daughter. Everything was so good. Loved the chips, salsa, guacamole, burritos. Yum! My mouth is watering just thinking about it

This place has great food and has to be one of the best values in town. We didn't have the margaritas sadly but assume they are still wonderful. Their salsa is still my personal favorite.

My 1st time here, we were with a very large group of friends. We did call ahead and was told that they do not accept reservations, however they would accomodate our group the best they could. The service was very slow but the food was very good. Willing to try this place again.

Favorite Mexican restraint in Lincoln, good food each time, I am very fond for their Stuffed Chile Relleno and the Jalapeño Raspberry Margarita.
