  • There are a few La Magdelena's in my area, but this one is awful. The staff is very, very rude and slow, and the food was just okay. Our presence seem to really irritate the staff, which is odd. It wasn't just one person either, the rudeness happened from the hostess all the way to the manager that we had to finally ask for.

  • Order: Nachos, Enchilada platter

  • I ate at this restaurant 1-2 years ago, have never gone back, and would never go back. The food was not impressive (not authentic, like I am used to - being Colombian) and the prices were quite high.

  • Order: Soup and Appetizers

  • My husband and I go here all the time. They have, by far, the best mexican food I have ever tasted. We have introduced all of our friends to this restaurant and they also go there all the time.

  • Order: fajitas, tacos

  • My husband and I discovered this about five years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I was instantly struck by the great atmosphere and friendly staff. The dishes are flavorful and very reasonably priced for the amount of food you get. Ever since that first visit we have been going back at least once a month.

  • Order: I ordered a Burrito Suiza

  • I enjoy this place everytime we go. The food is always good and is pretty quick. The chips are a bit hard and are not freshly prepared like you can get at some mexican restaurants but they are ok. Their lunch buffet is a good option and has a better price. Dinners a little bit more pricey.

  • Order: cheese enchiladas (enchiladas suizes)

  • I've been there for lunch and dinner many times. They offer lunch buffet but not everyday. The buffet offers variety of dishes and the food is always fresh. I love the cheese quesadillas and the pollo rostizado. I like to go there for dinner on Monday or Tuesday for the Margaritas specials. I recommend Chicken Mole and the Carne Asada. They offer good portion and free chips and salsa on the side. BTW, they advertise in the Saver coupon book. If you are local, check your mailbox for the BOGOF coupon. If you are looking for the authentic favor, this may not be the place. If you are looking for a good meal for the $$, you can't beat it.

  • Order: lunch buffet, Chicken Mole, Three Tacos, Carne Asada, Margaritas

  • Its pretty good. Its a good stretch between authentic and Taco Bell. Although I think they need more kids choices and larger drink glasses as it takes too long for them to return to fill the small glasses. We usually feel kinda sick to our stomach afterward too which is usually a sign of food contamination.

  • Order: Chicken Chimichanga and Fajitas
