As the title says, very good tostadas at La Hacienda. I only knock them on the slow service our dining night. I suspect the service staff was just understaffed as our server was running hard from table to table. Overall very good meal and Id...More

This is a good Mexican food restaurant. Always consistent. Love their tostados with their secret dressing. Sangaria is also good. However this time the service was poor. Took a long time to get seated, and just 2 of us. Drinks took at least 15 minutes...More

La Hacienda has been in business for a very long time. Their tostadas are good especially with their famous house dressing (which you can purchase to take home). They usually have a vegetarian special such as butternut squash quesadillas which are really good. Portions are...More

The food was excellent, beautifully plated and just right for a gringo's palette. The ambiance is cozy and relatively quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. Kudos to our waitress Megan. I don't know what the Taco Bell customer ordered but comments are way off base.

There are lots of Mexican Restaurants here, but La Hacienda is certainly one of the oldest. Lots of locals have eaten here as kids and then brought their grandkids back to enjoy the food. They have a nice banquet room and a fine bar.

I know several people who hold this restaurant in high esteem. I am not one of them. I found the food to be very ordinary - nothing really special. Service was really good. My recommendation is to try this for yourself and get your own...More
