Can't say enough about this restaurant, they have been around for many years and they are always EXCELLENT. The food all seems to be homemade and fresh cooked. The service is very good and the prices more than reasonable, with large portions for a good price. If you are in the mood for mexican, this is the place to go

Wanted to take my family out for real mexican as opposed to the american mexican food so they saw that there is a huge difference. I enjoyed my arroz con pollo and my husband surprisingly enjoyed the super quesadilla (he never tries new things) I also like that they offer classic American options on their kids menu

Had a combo plate with a burrito, enchilada, and soft taco (all chicken) and it was awesome. The margaritas are also very good.

In a shopping plaza close to the outlet mall. Looks like a tourist trap. The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding. The total bill was pleasing also. Five stars all the way.

My son and I were craving Mexican after a long day of hockey and la galera hit the spot. We enjoyed the steak quesadilla shrimp fajitas and cheese dip. Everything was really good. Solid experience all around.

We stopped in at La Galera for lunch over this past weekend. We were seated right away but had to wait quite a while for a waiter because they were so busy. It was definitely worth the wait though. The menu selection is terrific, prices are good and the meals are excellent and generous! My husband and I will go... More

Real authentic tasty plentiful fresh hot friendly Mexican food. I'm in the area with a few hundred friends each April for ten days and my wife and I make a point of getting out here at least a couple of times during our stay. Every time we go, there's a dozen of our friends here as well. There's a bit... More
