This a small restaurant with great Mexican food, reasonably prized and good service. Their tacos al pastor are my favorite, you simply cannot go wrong here. This is the only Mexican restaurant in Denton that has pozole on their menu. This particular dish brought happy...More

I usually find something nice to say about a place and for La Mexicana it was the folks that were dining. A nice mix of locals and some college students discussing their coursework. The food was barely passable, the coffee was not good, and the...More

Being from south Texas, I had heard this was one of the more authentic mexican restaurants Denton had to offer. I was extremely disappointed with the saturation of flavors. Good mexican food has favor infused in every bite, especially in the soups. The caldo de...More

My husband and I went to La Mexicana hoping for an "authentic" Mexican food experience. We are very picky about our Mexican food, and we weren't particularly impressed because the food wasn't very fresh or tasty. What's worse is that we both got sick after...More
