“The food and overall atmosphere was great for Sunday brunch, but apparently they employ a DJ to play music on Sundays during brunch which is so loud, it was extremely difficult to carry on a conversation let alone enjoy your meal. My ears are still ringing. My friend and I weren’t the only people in the restaurant requesting the volume to be decreased. Brunch should be a relaxing atmosphere, not feeling like you are at a night club….“

“The food was great. They kept forgetting to bring salsa and we requested it 3 times. They eventually brought it our table but at that point we were finished with our meal. Other than these misstep everything else was satisfactory. I brought my out of town daughter here who had never eaten at Corona. She was definitely satisfied with the food as well. I recommend this restaurant if you want good food with large portions, good prices, and friendly employees.“

I chose half green (imtomaVegetarian options: You can make almost every single entrée vegetarian in some manner, and because I was there specifically for two things, I didn’t really spend a lot of time looking at the menu. I believe that I have a menu online, we can also order ahead or have delivery and you can always call the store and place an order over the phone to pick up like I did, I’m just ask your questions then.Dietary restrictions: Many ways to make quite few items vegetarian (doubtful vegan, but I didn’t look either).Parking: This restaurant is right on the corner in a strip mall type of set up, so you have parking where you pull up right to the door on two of the four sides.Kid-friendliness: There were many kid items available, all of which appeared to come with rice and beans or some sort of side and a beverage. I appreciate that because a lot of times Mexican food or other cuisines, offer you craft box macaroni and cheese or one simple item, usually some sort of frozen hamburger, so I appreciate there was more of a children’s selection.Wheelchair accessibility: Parking directly by the door, and although I did not see the actual handicap ramp, I know there has to be one since they had handicap parking.“

“Loved the food. Chips and salsa to start the meal out were the perfect start to the meal, they’re not trying too hard, they’ve kept it simple with a traditional restaurant style chips and salsa that hits home.I wasn’t starving but wanted something with some protein so I went with the shrimp salad: it has arugula, pineapple/mango salsa and an amazing vinaigrette. The shrimp have a little kick to them so if you don’t like spice this might not be your dish. I loved it.I also got the chicken tortilla soup- It was amazing! Had a great flavor.Will definitely visit again when I’m in town.The server seemed a bit distracted or lacked interest because we didn’t order drinks so our waters stayed empty for a while but otherwise no complaints.“

Especially the pork. One even said they were the best he'd ever eaten. I will agree. They had a good amount of meat and the masa was not dry. The green sauce was delicious. I will be ordering these tamales again and would like to try the chile rellenos as well. Thank you Ladies for making my Christmas Eve Dinner a hit. Throw some business their way. You won't regret it.“

“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Chicken Flauta plate ($10.99) from Taqueria La Flama in Boise for to-go lunch. I like they have a drive-through window. The service was fast and efficient. The chicken flautas, rice and beans, were excellent. I liked that the flautas came with sour cream and guacamole. The guacamole was very good. I added both red and green salsa to my flautas. Both were very good. The vibe inside is fast food. This used to be a KFC. But it’s real made from scratch Mexican food, including beans with lard. If you like tacos, they are very well known for their Carne Asada in particular. Highly Recommended!“

“Nice TexMex place for lunch or dinner. A lot of TexMex places are indistinguishable from each other, which I don't mind because I love the food regardless. What I noticed about La Tapatia that was unique:* They serve the complimentary chips with salsa and warm refried beans. I have strong feelings that refried beans should be as popular and utilized as hummus in American cuisine, so this was a welcome intro* Lunch time was pretty busy and we told our server we were in a bit of a rush before our next meeting, and our meals were out before the chips were gone.* I got Carne Asada, which is my usual TexMex order. The meat was tender and perfectly cooked. The Spanish rice was fluffy and flavorful. The corn tortillas were not home made, but still properly warmed and prepped.Overall, this is a good 1-2 times a month TexMex joint if you're in the area.Dietary restrictions: I'm gluten and dairy free, and they accommodate with corn tortillas and no cheese/sour creamParking: Plenty of spots in the strip mall.Kid-friendliness: Had a kids menu“

Most striking was how hard everyone was working. One worker was even cleaning an air vent in the ceiling, and then washing outside windows. The place was spotless and we felt confident eating there.

“We have been eating here or getting take out 3-4 times a month since Spring of 2020. We're addicted to the Baja burritos. Their veggie is out of this world. Something about the thin cut veggies is extra special. They're so big that we add chips and salsa and save half a burrito for lunch the next day. The chicken tacos in lettuce shells instead of tortillas are delicious too. Oh and the white margarita is delish, as well as the huckleberry vodka drink. The outdoor seating is super fun in summer. And the staff are so great. They really notice when you're a regular. This is the only restaurant I've ever walked into and had them greet me by name. I LOVE this place!
