Description: A lot of places claim to be for the "locals" but this place actually is where they eat. The name means "crazy potato" in English and that is their speciality. Huge baked potato's filled with buttter, sour cream, cheese and then a variety of meats. Their tacos al pastor and pico de gallo are the best I've ever tasted. Nothing on the menu is more than $50 peso's or about $4usd. Very popular spot with the locals and tourist's that want to experience authentic Mexican food..

Really loved this place. The food is fantastic and it is fun to watch the staff stay so busy but yet stay on track. Do not pass this place up.

The potatoes at La Papa Loca are fantastic! We always get the Crazy Potato which is topped with Pastor meat off the spit! The tacos al pastor are also very good. This is a place where the locals go and we always seem to be the only gringos in the place! Prices here are more than reasonable. Chips are served with huge bowls of salsa which are really tasty. Service is a bit slow, but the restaurant is always very busy. The potato is worth the wait! The restaurant is only open for dinner and there is often a line of people waiting for a table.

Crazy busy place. Mexican style basically eating in a parking lot. Service was good and fast. It was very hot there do to the grills and meat BBQ. We only had a crazy Potatoes. Loaded with all kinds of goodies including pineapple. Very good. They do serve other Mexican cuisine as well. Not sure if I would return unless it was for takeout.
