Overall
Tortillas just like abuelita's

OK, so when you walk into La Mexicana you think, hmph, just another dumpy little Mexican place. You wait a bit too long for your order to be taken, and the server doesn't smile. But then you order guacamole and tortillas. You take a quick trip past the tiny kitchen, and you can SEE your guacamole being made fresh. And the tortillas are being shaped by hand. The food here is outrageously fresh and authentic. There are plenty of vegetarian options, and there is no lard in the beans. The tortillas are completely unrelated to the grocery store version--thick, hot, fresh, handmade. They barely bend around the meat in the chicken tacos, which are juicy and delicious. This place is only open Wednesday-Sunday, and they serve no beef, only chicken and pork. But it's unique, delicious, and warrants repeated visits for food you can't get elsewhere in the area.
