It's colorful and affordable- two qualities I enjoy. I think the food is "good" not "great" but I really do like the trio de tacos. One steak, shredded pork, one chicken. All good. Throw in some cilantro, some pineapple and onions and it's really a respectable (and cheap) lunch. Besides, with the thick and crispy chips and two types of salsa, you'll have more than enough food. Though, why not get a horchata? I'm not sure. You should get one. It's delicious.
Bob had the platter mexicano and I literally did not even see it disappear off his plate. Apparently it was that good- a taco, a flouta, and a quesadilla. And lots of goodness.
With two locations, it really poises itself as a decent Madison mexican food joint. We've already discussed the downfalls of La Hacienda and the wonders of Tacqueria but if you're in the capital area and want a relaxing, higher than mediocre lunch, stop by and see the super friendly staff at La Mestiza. Get a drink. Enjoy the chips and salsa and pick from a great menu of traditional (with a bit of an anglo flair) options.
