Since La Paz moved to their present location the quality of the food has declined significantly, used to have really good Mexican dishes.

Our experience at La Paz was fabulous! The decor is kitchy and colorful, the prices are reasonable, and the staff were cheerful. They have a great outdoor area which overlooks the Carroll Creek Linear Park promenade, so the ambiance is nice.
