I was expecting a little more of our food but it took a long time and arrived cold. It wasn't bad food but it wasn't great either.

No trouble filling up the new expansion. Food is still terrific, fairly priced and good portions. Gloria, who usually takes care of us, still the best at seeing to the needs of the customers. Friendly, funny and professional, she keeps things moving right along. You will never regret a visit. Also try the delicious hand made hamburgers and home made... More

Went in at lunch time and they were very busy but service was good and quick. The food was excellent and very tasty! Their salsa is to die for some of the best I e had. Small place with little atmosphere but the food makes up for all of that and their prices are reasonable.

Small little diner with really good Tex Mex. We've only been there for breakfast but it was great. Run by a family and you probably want to bring cash. If you want a big city experience, this isn't it. However, if you want a little family place to eat and some pretty good Mexican, this is it.

Absolutely delicious home made Mexican food. Everything we had was authentic and so very good. Great small town feel service. Not a lot of ambiance but the food is worth the visit. They have a wonderful reputation for home made tamales which we will be ordering.

Love the small town local feel of La Flor Mexican Cocina in Wylie, TX. There is still a family feel here and since it's small you get to know the owner and will love the food. Very authentic just like I used to eat growing up on the Border in El Paso. Best Beef Fajita Chile Rellenos in North Texas.... More

I think the title says it all, service was extremely slow, had difficulty getting things right and fast is not even an option. This is a difficulty when you have a two year old and a baby. It was 10 min before we we able to place a drink order, and 15 before we were even given chips. This would... More

Good service, good food! At the time they didn't have a beer/booze license and had free beer and margaritas. My friends said the margaritas were good. The beer was Bud Lite.
