    "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...

    Best Mexican food in the Twin Cities!! So authentic and the staff is just amazing!!!

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

    Chelsea Moga · September 30, 2013
  • Matt E.

    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.

    Matt Everhart · September 2, 2013

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

    The puerco gusado burrito is the best Mexican dish I've ever had.

    Megan Berg · June 12, 2013
  • Karah K.

    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.

    Karah Kregness · June 5, 2013
  • Jamie W.

    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.

    Mark Abbott · May 26, 2013
  • Kari M.

    Bullfighter. Straight up. Yummy and drunky.

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

    McLean Donnelly · March 11, 2013
  • Jaime T.

    Order the green salsa, they don't bring it otherwise.

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

    Jessie Nordin · January 4, 2013
  • Juan L.

    Yea if you like over priced super greasy food sure come on in if you want an actual mexican menu your better off going to el loro or el amanecer way better food for a way lower price

    Juan Leija · December 16, 2012
  • Kelly H.

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

    Kelly Harris · November 9, 2012

    Megan Berg · November 22, 2011
  • Ian R.

    The nachos are great. The margaritas are also great... if you're an 18 year old girl. Watered down generic mix and rail tequila. boo. The food is also pretty meh.

    Bad service

    Rachel Gliske · August 11, 2011

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

    Cory Dahl · July 29, 2011
  • Sean K.

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

    Sean Kelley · June 25, 2011
  • Johanna S.

    I was a little nervous coming here especially since their name means "the cockroach" but honestly they have great drinks and good food. The chips are amazing! Get some!

    Johanna Snow · May 5, 2011

    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
