The food was horrible. My husband ordered a burrito It had no flavor it was bland. I had 2 vegetarian sopes the only thing they put it in was beans, cilantro and onions. In every Mexico store they put fresh lettuce and tomatoes. They didn’t …

Jaime Glaze

All time favorite place to go! I have been eating at this restaurant since it was a little taco truck that first started. It is totally amazing. I have tried most things on their menu and have my favorite go tos such as their steak tacos, sopes, burrito supremes, but it is all great! The only place in the Cedar Valley that has truly authentic fresh food. It is a family ran business, they are all amazing, and the meat you can get in the grocery stores is epic to make your own steak tacos. They will even season for you!

I been going to la michocana for years, lately the last year it has been horrible. I always get the same thing, they hardly put any meat on your stuff it’s more tortilla then it is anything. Besides that my last few experiences have been …

I had a really good soda, I didn't eat anything because I wasn't hungry. Their food smelled really good and the people I was with said it tasted way better than it smelled. They anialeted it.

Had been looking for a place to buy Mexican style tacos and burritos found it. they were good and cheaper than others

Amidu Shaban

Tushar Chowdhary

If you want Mexican street style Tacos, this is the places to go in Waterloo/Cedar Falls area. The new renovation is a nice update and another selling point for this restaurant. Though pork and steak tacos are amazing, try out lengua/tongue which was really good.

Blaq Duhv

I've been eating there for years and the food has always been great.

Brandt Stewart

Good, cheap, and on the whole authentic Mexican cuisine. Check it out and be polite.

Ashlie Hampton

It used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant, but since the remodeling, the customer service over the phone is terrible... I was trying place an order and in the middle My order, two of the employees started talking. They never said hold please, and didn’t ask if my order was complete... so I ended up walking in to place my order while I was still on the line. The food was done in a timely manner, but she assumed I was dining in and to eat 3 different orders... she never asked if it was to go... which it was.. so she ended up throwing my food in to go boxes... My steak was chewy, my fries were soft and had no seasoning... my boyfriend said his tacos were too soft. And, the taco plate price was raised an extra $2.50... La Placita has crispy, seasoned, steak meat... and the taco plate is under $6 whereas La Michoacana taco plate was close to $8!!!! I’m just all around disappointed.... Im no longer recommending this as my favorite restaurant...

Kevin Jenney

Marvin Luerkens

Excellent food, great service and a comfortable eating environment.

Laura Shavers

Wednesday is $0.50 Taco Day! Can't beat the prices and the red sauce is always amazing! My daughter stops here on her way to basketball practice every week!

Michael Frank

Inexpensive, excellent, authentic Mexican food. People that work there are great too. They bring it out as it is freshly prepared. And they do that fast considering it's cooked to order. In response to a persons 3 star review before, This isn't your american restaurant where they prep a table for 8 and bring it at once. Go to a chain restaurant for that. Chapala's is excellent too for great food and large tables.. But La Michoacana is more authentic, and a great different experience.

Erfan Vatanpour

Average food

marcus patrick

Got our order wrong, tried calling them but no one answered. So had to drive all the way back down there from Evansdale because we asked for American tacos and they gave us Mexican. So we asked for new tacos I'm mean they were covered in onions. Well all they did was covered up the onions with the American ingredients smh not a happy customer, not happy at all

Ajla Mujakic

Usually they’re great, service and food but literally I waited 30 MINUTES in the drive thru for them to tell me they don’t have the meat I wanted for my order, which they could’ve told me right away.

Doreen Corley

Food good but waiting for your food is crazy..plan on sitting there a while

Jessica Morgan

Janea Stigler

KC Lehr

Great authentic Mexican food. Friendly staff.

Ian Scott

I am not sure how this is one of the best rated Mexican restaurants in Waterloo. It was horrible. The food we were served was very cold and te enchiladas were covered in a sauce that was downright disgusting and inedible. The service was poor and unfriendly. I strongly recommend that you find a different restaurant if you are in the mood for Mexican food.

Rebecca Jones

Food wasn't appetizing

Raquel Glass

What a selection! Every type of meat is available including goat. Tacos are simply meat and cilantro with sauce. Quality ingredients. Will be back to try the many other plates. Dining area is sparse with cafeteria style seating.

We found the restaurant to be clean and updated, and the staff were friendly and helpful, but the food was just mediocre. Neither of our burritos were hot, which was quite disappointing.

Best sit down place to get Steak tacos in the Cedar Valley! There's a few Taco Trucks that can beat the flavor, but this place is always here!!!

Maria Vazquez

No me gustó los tacos


Great place if you're Hispanic. I watched today as two black customers and myself(caucasian) waited nearly an hour for our food while every Hispanic customer was immediately served within 10 minutes. Use to love this place, shame to see racial issues play a part in your business. I won't be returning.

robby vasquez
