My mother and law and I was craving Mexican food and I was looking at reviews and different places then I end up choosing this restaurant. However, the meat needed a little bit more flavor(other seasoning) for the amount of meat they give they do not put a lot of rice and beans overall it was ok, and my mother in law shrimp taco was “OK” according to her.P.S - I do want to try their alcoholic drinks

We were greeted with chips and salsa immediately. The chips were still warm and fresh, and the salsa tasted so yummy and home made. The menu has plenty of options and combinations. The burrito, enchilada, and tamale were amazing. Our waiter checked on us and refilled our drinks multiple times, but it was never too over bearing, the timing was just right. The meal wasn't too pricey plus we used a coupon! The servers and cooks really care about what they do. The environment was lovely and the food tasted very authentic. It was worth the one hour drive!

Their food is super good, consistently. From the chips and salsa to the beans and rice... it doesn't matter what you order here, it will be good. Before I ate here, I didn't even like cheese enchiladas but now its like one of my favorite things...A good way to tell if the food will be good is by judging how well they do the simple things. Here, they're on point!I generally do pick up or delivery, so i can't speak to table service, but every time I order things here, they're right and on time and it's not super expensive either.I definitely recommend it!

The food was not traditional, actually. They seemed to use a basic seasoned hamburger for every item. I got a combo including a burrito, an enchilada and a taco. But for the difference in the shells, they all tasted exactly the same and no cheese on anything except the taco. Not my favorite mexican food, but they were busy, so maybe it's just me. :)

We pulled in here after driving all day across Kansas. It was a nice break, the staff was very welcoming and service was good and fast the food was good. All around, a good solid stop for dinner.

Felt very safe eating here. Wait staff were in masks, and we were seated in an area well away from others. The fajita taco salad I had was warm and very good with plenty of filling.

The salsa is the icing on the cake! The staff was so friendly and attentive. The fajitas are some of the best I've had, you can't go wrong with any choice. So many good choices here! A must try.

Our experience was horrible. We order three orders over lunch for three people and they gave one bag of chips, how do you share 1 bag for 3 people.

Was very happy that they were open. Most of the other customers I saw, had numbers already-because they pre-ordered. This was a last minute decision, that sounded great. Went in, with mask, ordered, and meal came out with 15min. Good amount t of food for the price. Will definitely go back.

Quiet & colorful. My grandson and I had lunch here. The staff was very friendly & prompt with service. Their tea was perfect & the food was delicious. I had the Enchiladas Suizas, they where spectacular chicken enchiladas. Definitely one of my top five Mexican restaurants.

La Mesa finds the right balance between authentic and Mexican-American cuisine. Great friendly staff, good prices, loaded margaritas and queso, we eat here all the time.

I bet it is hard to find any authentic Mexican restaurant in Kansas with this quality food and amazing prices.It was a great successful experience for myself and my family. The service is very fast with bottomless complimentary chip and salsa. The portions as very good for both appetizers and entrees.

I do not recommend this place at all. The chips tasted old, the rice was still crunchy, the beans tasted like tuna (yes, that is right, TUNA) and the meat tasted old. The only thing decent about the meal was the salsa.

This was my first time in a long time eating at this restaurant. I quit going here because when they first opened their food was terrible. I had the special dinner and it was excellent. So much food I couldn't eat it all. There was 21 of us in our party and the server did an excellent job of taking care of us. For good Tex-Mex I would highly recommend this place.

Review №31

My husband and I tried to call in to cancel an order we wouldn't be able to pick up due to unforeseen circumstances. They had no problem taking our order over the phone, but when we called to cancel (over an hour before pick-up, I might add), they suddenly couldn't hear us, and eventually hung up. This is very disappointing, as we had heard incredible things about this restaurant.

Wasn't impressed! The fajita meat was the only thing that was good. Rice was under cooked and seemed like it must have been sitting out to long.. chips and salsa were great and guacamole was delicious! Not a restuarant I'd crave.

My family waited over a half hour for our food to arrive, and my wife and youngest son received their food ten minutes before me and my other son. Our drinks were never refilled and we ate our meal with empty beverages. I ordered a chimichanga for $10 and it looked like a frozen burrito from Walmart. The cashier asked how everything was and when I explained she simply said I'm sorry and never offered to get the manager. This has not been the normal experience but the service is never consistent.

Review №42

Dynamite! This is the place I've been looking for. I had the fajita nachos and unlike so many places they're done right here. The simple process for fajita nachos (according to me) is a bed of chips, fajita meats and veggies and then house cheese dip. Out of all the Mexican joints I've been too across the metro this is the only one that makes them this way. It's too bad they're a 45 minute drive from the house otherwise I'd be here a lot more often.

Review №43

Good salsa, good ceviche, good drinks. Fast service despite the New Year's Eve crowd. Only thing they're missing is a good mole sauce, but they're not alone in that. They've been one of our go-to restaurants in the Leavenworth & Lansing area for years.

Reasonably priced, lots of food on plate. Flavors great. But the government stepped in and ruined the service. The servers used to be all men and they did great. All dressed alike and looked awesome. Now not so much.

Last night was the first time we visited this fine restaurant. But It is definitely not the last. We enjoyed the evening a lot with the courteous service, with the high quality food and fine drinks and with the decent price. We will no doubt go back there soon.

Being from Texas I know Tex-Mex. It's just hard to get right if you're not from the south. I I have had Tex-Mex all along the east and west coast. And it's never done right. Needless to say I did not think this place would be any different. However much to my delight I think this place is a pretty good job of getting it right. So much so, that from my short 10-day stay in Kansas I went here twice. Definitely worth coming back a second time.

La Mesa Mexican Restaurant is one of the best Mexican food choices in town. Their set up is amazing, the chairs, tables, music, decorations, everything was great. The menu has so many choices and different combinations. I went with a work group, and everyone was super satisfied, they checked on us regularly, any ticks we wanted to make to the menu they worked with us, we didn't have to wait long, everything was all around great.!

Review №74

First of all the smell when you walked in should have been an indicator to leave, but we gave it a shot. Secondly, they don't have a changing table for babies so don't bother going here with the littles. Thirdly, the food was not good. The chips were stale and I would assume old, the salsa was bland, and the entrees were just crumbles of ground meat with gobs of sauce and flavorless. Last, but not least the place did not appear to be clean. To be fair, they did have friendly service and the flavorless food came out fast, but regardless I will never be back.

Review №75

By far the worst and nastiest restaurant I have ever ate at. My kids and I waited what seemed to be close to 30 minutes to just order our drinks... 30 more minutes later they brought incorrect drinks and then 40 minutes later we finally ordered. Never mind you they weren't even busy. Our food order came out incorrect and I showed our waiter who put his hands in my kids tacos. Then asked what I wanted him to do about it. The owner was even worse. I tried to explain what was going on and he then asked what I wanted him to do about it. It smelled like sewage and it was super dirty. I will never go back.

Excellent service from the moment you walk in the door, and DELICIOUS main courses. Good atmosphere, and reasonable prices for the enourmous portions. A great variety on the menu, with every option being fantastic. For casual dining in Lansing you can't go wrong here.

Chips and salsa both kind of bland. Food was good, wasn't spiced at all. Basic ground beef for meat, but I did get a basic combo plate. My wife got fajitas, she said no color (no tomatoes, fresh pepper/onions). Left overs were fine, I will try different stuff next time besides the basic combos.Salsa tastes like it comes out of can.

The prices are affordable. The service is excellent. The flavor is spot on. Everytime I go I have a great experience and it does not matter how busy they are or how slow it might be that day. I have not been disappointed, yet.

Pretty good food, taco Tuesday is a great deal! One thing they must fix that's been going on a while is the overwhelming raw sewage smell at the front door. I really dont no how they haven't fixed this yet not a great first impression luckily the food is good..

Review №87

Wouldn't even give one star if I could. We ordered an order of chicken fajitas for 2. We asked my sister to swing by and grab our order. They insisted it was our order, had her pay for it, and she brought it home. It wasn't our order and when we called to let them know, whoever was in charge acted like we needed to bring the order back in order to give it to the rightful owner. Whoever was in charge also accused us of lying.

Very busy place, but there was still plenty of seating so we got a booth right away. Great friendly service. The food was very good. We weren't expecting a place in Kansas to have such delicious Mexican dishes. I got a big ol' pint of Pacifico to wash down my filling, reasonably-priced meal.

Second time here. Eat a lot of Mexican cuisine from coast to coast, from Canada to Mexico. This menu ranks with the best. Only criticism, salsa could be thicker with crushed tomatoes and adding a hint of habanero and lime. The best in KC area.
