Tried this for lunch and was very pleased. Big basket of chips and salsa (like $3) and Chimichanga plate that was covered with avocado, sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce. Also had very good refried beans and red rice with pieces of yuca in it. Overall, lots of food, good tasting, and right priced so good value.

Almost eat here while visiting Shands. Previous visits have been excellent. Tonight was different. My wife's green mole over chicken encaladas. The meat in my son in laws beef enchiladas was very tough and extremely hot. Won't return for awhile.

I rarely go to La Tienda, even though it is touted as one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants around. The menu is extensive and I have trouble deciding, especially since it's modified counter-service and there is always a line. This time, I went with a burrito al pastor, which was good. I don't think I'd order it again, as... More

Right across from our hotel in Gainesville. Everyone had an excellent meal with me as an exception. My issue was self inflicted. I ordered special #5 which was spicy shrimp. I don't like spicy food and just thought it'd have a little heat. Nope. Turns out they mean spicy! And it was still good, I just couldn't eat it. I... More

Enjoyed the hard shell tacos. It is basically a serve yourself place with good food. The taco sauce they brought had crushed red pepper in it. Beware if you don't like spicy taco sauce...I overdid it myself.
