Did not expect a chip, chip dinner that was worse than taco bell, the enchiladas smell like pee, the consistency of the salsa was just as green color water, chips came in a paper burger joint container over all it was not worth the drive.

We sat on the patio, had wonderful service, fantastic Cadillac margaritas and some phenomenal authentic Mexican food. The chorizo queso dip was great to start, flavorful and plenty for $5. The pork carnitas were tremendous, spicy shrimp quesadilla devine. We will definitely return.

La Vallesana provides an eye-pleasing setting amidst a host of competing taquerias on Cherokee street. There is plenty of seating between two rooms and patio seating outside. The piña colada is served in a fresh pineapple and I can't say I've had a better one...More
