The food no doubt is very good. With that said it's very expensive compared to other Mexican restaurants which there is no shortage of in Winston Salem. Service is slow as crap! Try Papa Nachos in the Pavilions Shopping Center further down Hanes Mall Blvd.

Most variety and best tasting Vegetarian menu for a Mexican Restaurant in Winston Salem. It takes a little while for the food to be prepared because they are making it from scratch. Always good. Get there early for dinner, they get a crowd.

We went there in our way home. We had to wait for a table. Service is not the best but food is really good. My wife had fajitas and they forgot to bring the tortillas. We had to ask twice. It's a bit pricey but they have a lot of options and food is really tasty!

I ordered a chicken quesadilla tortilla expecting chicken, cheese, peppers etc with rice and refried beans. What I received after waiting fifteen minutes, was a tortilla wrapped around chicken, rice and beans. Maybe I'm too much of a gringo but I could get this at taco bell and more. Not my cup of tea.

We had to stay over in Winston-Salem to avoid driving through bad weather. We found this little gem after picking up some supplies at the local Walmart. The food was fresh, and authentic. The restaurant doesn't offer take out as an advertised option but you can get the food to go which is what we did. Honestly, the ingredients were... More

Little pricier than most Mexican restaurants but definitely worth it. I got the the Torta Ahogada. Very spicy and delicious. Wife got tacos with pastor and carnitas. Also delicious.

I love the fact that La Botana has a separate vegetarian menu with unique and flavorful dishes. I've had entrees that included nopales, eggplant and squash blossoms which you don't typically see on Mexican restaurant menus.

Wife and I had heard a lot of good things about La Botana, and we were in the area, so we tried it out. Now I can say I have been to La Botana. There is a Monday and Tuesday night special column in the menu. If you have to venture off that column, you're starting to get into entrees... More

This is the best Mexican food I have ever ate!! The service was excellent, felt like everyone was waiting on us. The best eating out experience ever!! We both ate Tuesday specials which was more than either could eat and the price was even better!! I would recommend to everyone!
