Walk in, and Lala herself will probably be there to welcome you with a basket of chips and salsa. She famously refers to everyone as “honey” or “sweetie,” and will let you sit anywhere you’d like. The Mexican cuisine is authentic, the prices are great, and the turnaround is quick.
My go-to at Lala’s is the al pastor taco dinner with the side of beans and rice. This right here is the best al pastor taco plate around. I always order it the traditional way – corn tortillas, cilantro, and onions. The pork is very tender and richly seasoned, not too tangy! Lala’s does a great version of this Mexican classic.
