My father-in-law often takes us here when we fly into PHX. I just had a beef taco but appreciated the homemade tortilla and shredded beef. My husband loved his tamale. The waitress was super polite.

Terrible Mexican food! Used to be very good back in the 1970's. The only thing that made this place remotely pleasant was seeing it in the rear view mirror as we were leaving!

My family in Phoenix goes to La Pinata all the time, and I usually go there when visiting. I feel like they have improved their food and their service over the handful of visits I've made. My last dinner was fantastic and I think the place is cute and fun. The service was fast and friendly too.

We have flown in and out of Phoenix twice this summer and have eaten at La Pinata three times. The service was so great that we took our pic with our server, Ellie! The steak nachoes were the best we have ever had--tender, tasty taste, amazing guacamole. We will be back!
