I will always love LaMex, and have been dining there for over a decade. It can't hurt that I also met my husband there! GREAT ambiance, with better margaritas. Fantastic first date place. Half price ($4.00) margaritas on Tuesdays/Thursdays. Some highlights: Homeade, delicious chips/salsa, the MARGARITAS, Texas chimichanga/burrito, spinach/chicken enchiladas, chile relleno, and appetizer chicken quesadilla (I know, simple, but... More

I live close by and we frequent this restaurant regularly. Food is consistently good. The Diablo steak burrito is huge and delicious. Great place for couples or larger groups.

Enjoy the drinks and the food never disappoints. Service is friendly and good. A lot of food for the money. I like that you can order smaller portions as well

Good friendly service. Spicy salsa. Reasonable prices. Different menu choices. Would have liked more salad choices. What we had was good. Great margarita.

I love good Mexican food and this place is pretty good. It didn't blow me away or anything but it was fresh, warm, and good. We got a pitcher of margaritas and boy oh boy are they strong! 2 of them and I was giggly. It's crazy because they don't taste that strong at all. Chips and salsa are complementary... More

This is a popular Morris restaurant with a very cramped waiting area. The food is good. Servers are nice and friendly. Full bar. Good margaritas. The problem with this restaurant is that the food delivery is slow. There's nothing special enough about the food to warrant the slow delivery. Everything I've tried -- from tacos, to enchiladas, to fajitas has... More

Service was great, liked the fact that we were seated right away. Chips and salsa were great and served immediately upon sitting down. We had tostados and tacos and they were excellent, more than enough to eat.
