“Delicious food washed down with homemade Sangria!”
Review of La Magdalena - CLOSED

La Magdalena
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Friendly staff greet & seat you immediately. Complimentary warm tortilla chips with freshly made salsa brought to the table right away. The margarita special was a 3.99 Margarita, and it's a good size. After placing our order food came out quickly. The waiter was a little slow moving (it was a really slow night there). Other then that I loved it. I've been there for for the lunch buffet as well (buffet only at lunch) and it was phenomenal.

We eat at this restaurant regularly. It is our preferred for Mexican food. The service is consistently prompt and attentive. The drinks, most notably their sangria swirl margarita, are excellent. Everything ordered is fresh and very tasty and we appreciate that they offer mild salsa. We have eten here for years and have never been disappointed.

Slighted portions, no flavor in the food. The others are right. Stay away unless you want to pay $25 bucks for a 7-11 big gulp Margarita!

Reasonably priced but not high quality food....margaritas are made from a mix, are overly syrupy and low quality tequila. The only two sides possible are refried beans and rice; neither of which are very good. Very basic seasoning on any of the meats. Service for lunch is often very slow. We've been several times and I've never been impressed. Overall, not a lot of thought has gone into the menu and the food would taste a lot better if things were prepared in-house, with fresh ingredients from scratch. Honestly, if you want decent Mexican in Schaumburg, you're better off saving yourself about $10-20 and eating at Chipotle.
