Have been coming here for lunch many years. Always busy but they squeeze you in and get you out quickly.
The chips and salsa are top notch and they keep filling both.
Love the Machaca Chimichanga with the guacamole which has a great crispy outer tortilla and tasty but not spicy inside of generous shredded beef.
The tacos and tamales are also very authentic and good.
I believe this is the original location and family owned.
The service is always top notch and friendly.
Parking has been expanded and easier to find a space.
Will be back many more times.

Phoenix is known for great Mexican food and this restaurant is the best of the best! The food is very authentic and the service was great. I love everything, starting with the chips and salsa, the cheese crisp, to my burro enchilada style.
Great service, great price, and FANTASTIC food. I highly recommend everyone to eat this yummy restaurant.

Had the shrimp fajitas. Service was great, food portions were abundant and the price was perfect.

This IS the place I've been dreaming about. Stumble upon this place a year ago and have been thinking of the food since. Every time I get to Phoenix, this is the one must stop. Everything is good, but I recommend getting your enchilada Christmas style (both red and green sauce)!
Great value, great food and great service.

Stopped in at La Canasta for dinner on Tuesday night, the food was excellent and our waitress Stephanie was fabulous. Stephanie was working the hostess station and waiting on tables all while checking on us regularly.
I had the carne asada combo, it was flavorful with the most authentic rice and beans I've ever had at a restaurant. My husband had the machaca combo which was equally delicious.
Great place for Mexican food, I would highly recommend it.
