I had the worst meal I can recall at La Mexicana on Montrose @ Fairview recently. The line at Niko Niko was out the door, and with no extra time for a 45 minute wait, we stopped in to "La Mex" as I have seen it fondly refered to on occasion. No need to discuss what we ordered, it all tasted the same: old. That is the only word to describe the food. Old grease, old ingredients, old. The red salsa, while deep in color, had no flavor at all. Literally like putting water on a chip, all you taste is a soggy chip. Weird. Only one item was edible, a side of refried black beans that had flavor from lard. This is one of those many 30 year old TexMex places that survive from childhood memories, I guess. Save yourself.
