Welcome to La Hacienda. You could drive 500 miles south to find authentic Mexican cuisine, or you could take a short drive to La Hacienda, located on Laurel Street, one block west of El Camino Real in San Carlos, where for 28 years Tina and Cristobal have been serving fine authentic Mexican cuisine. Let yourself be transported to a sleepy little Mexican village where you sip their homemade Sangria and feast on the Especialidades De La Casa. Heart Bueno The refried beans, whole beans and Mexican rice are vegetarian and made with no animal products. We fry in 100% vegetable oil, and use absolutely no lard in any of our cooking. All visible fat is trimmed from meat, and poultry is skinned. Our sauces are completely vegetarian and made with no animal products. La Hacienda, recognized by Consumer Business Review as: Authentic Mexican Cuisine of the Year 2006

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The restaurant was nearly empty but the server was very short with me and when I asked him a quesyabout lunch special vs regular order and looked annoyed when I did not understand his explanation. The food did not taste good. The portion was very small. I order a beef dish because they said they were out of fajita beef in got small bits of beef floating in red sauce. My daughter ordered “regular” veg burritos and they were basically burritos without meat, there was no real veggies in the burritos. Overall it was such a disappointing experience. We live about 10 min away and hoped to have better food/experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven’t been here for a while but always enjoyed it. The food is your basic Mexican food but it actually tastes like good Mexican food should taste. Our waiter was perfect. Patient, attentive and our dinners came out quickly and piping hot. No big rush and just an enjoyable place for dinner. I reminded myself to be sure to come back here more frequently. Even without the discount, this would be a very reasonable price menu
