The soaring dining room of La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant resembles a splendid manor in Mexico, with vine-draped balconies, colorful mosaic walls, and tiled awnings. Vibrant murals of mariachis beam down from the upper-level balconies, their faces lit by glittering chandeliers. Servers bustle up and down the stairs of the multi-tiered dining area, bearing baskets of warm tortilla chips and fiery salsas. Outside in the restaurant’s playground, whippersnappers careen down colorful slides as their parents watch from the lush outdoor patio, sipping frozen margaritas.
In the kitchen of this colorful Mexican eatery, chefs whip up a menu of classics, including crispy tacos, sizzling fajitas, and cheesy enchiladas. They fold fresh seafood into a variety of specialties, including buttery shrimp Mazatlan and garlicky steamed snapper. The accommodating chefs even offer a menu of kid-friendly eats, including chicken fingers served with fries and quesadillas served with a few pages of completed homework assignments.
