    "Son of a Fiesta" was bad. This was one of the worst Mexican food experiences in recent memory. Skip this place and go to any other Mexican restaurant. Seriously. 10$ bland guac, no thanks

    Family-owned since the 1960s, La Cucaracha is a down-to-earth neighborhood joint, festively decorated with murals, trinkets, and pinatas, creating a cozy feel. Read more

    Mix up on our orders/spiciness and the manager came over to tell us we were wrong and treat us like we had insulted her personally. Thanks for making my bday lunch memorable...

    It was good. Although it's expensive and there's no wi-fi for your smartphone to lean on.

    More expensive than you think, be prepared to pay over $20 if you get an entree and a drink. No free chips and salsa. Service was lackluster. Having said all that, the food is quite good.

    Gina's Yucatan tostadas are fantastic. My husband said they are the best tostadas he's ever had! Fresh!

    Service can sometimes be a little lacking, but the food is fantastic. The chicken chimchanga is the best in the cities and the Bullfighter margarita is worth the extra money to upgrade! Yum.

    This is by far the best Mexican Food I've ever had! Perfect blend of flavor & spice. I highly recommend the steak platter to anyone who can handle the heat!

    Puerco Guisado Verde might be the first entree at a Twin Cities Mexican restaurant to hit the true "hot-hot" thresholds you get at South Asian and Caribbean restaurants.

    Try the Puerco Pisado Verde - a fun, tasty and spicy build your own pork taco dish.

    Terrible service and mediocre drinks- the only thing I was pleased with was the free nacho bar during happy hour.

    I prefer Taco Johns over their food and Taco Johns is horrible. The salsa tastes like spaghetti sauce?

    I would recommend two week old Taco Bell over this food. Very very bad. Anyone who likes this food is crazy, seriously.

    Worst Mexican food ever! Seriously slapping some tortillas, cheese and mole together is not real Mexican food. Taco Bell does better.

    Split a "Bullfighter" margarita pitcher for the first round- this matador's no bull. Then downgrade to a "Tourist" which isn't saccharine Read more
