If your taste buds are craving Mexican food, this is the place to go. The restaurant is inside of a free standing building and the outside of the building is painted white with red bricks halfway up the around the entire building. There are also red awnings on all of the outside windows. As you walk to the front entrance there is a big sign to the right with red lettering that says La Finca.
As you walk through a beautiful wooden front door you are in a foray and then there is another wooden door that leads inside to the restaurant. You wait to be seated by the waitress or waiter and you will be asked if you want a table or a booth. When you are seated, homemade tortilla chips and two kinds of salsa which brought to your table to nibble on while your food is cooked. One salsa is a mild red salsa that has a little kick to it and you can see and taste the fresh chopped cilantro which gives it that traditional Mexican flavor. The other red salsa packs a mean punch and is bursting with hot chili pepper flavors. There is also a bowl of the creamiest dip I have ever tasted. Sour cream and guacamole are blended to perfection and the dip is thick enough no the drip down off your chips. The salsas and the dip come served in tiny clay pottery bowls.
The lighting inside is not bright but not too dim either. It is just right for a relaxing meal. The tables are arranged quite nicely and spaced adequately enough apart so that when you are sitting down you do not feel as though the customers at the next table will hear every word of your conversation. The décor fits in nicely with the colors of the paint on the walls. The walls are painted a rustic yellowish brown. As you walk inside, over to the left against the wall is a white brick fireplace. During the bitterly cold months of winter this adds more comfort and coziness to the atmosphere. Hanging above the fireplace is a vividly colored sunburst and there is a blue colored half crescent moon intertwined in the sunburst. There are several beautiful cactus plants arranged nicely throughout the restaurant along with luscious green ivy plants hanging in weaved baskets along a few of the smaller walls which add a focal point.
The Mexican folk art and still life artwork depicting the Mexican way of life adds a more in depth detail to the décor and brings it all together nicely.
Beautiful pieces of clay pottery adorn the walls and shelves that add the right feel to the atmosphere.
The tables are made out of a cherry wood and they all have a glossy finish. The chairs are made out of wood and have a rustic look to them. There is also a fully stocked bar on the left side as you walk in. You can sit down and relax and watch a game while you enjoy a nice cold beer or of course the staple margarita which are not relativley strong.
The menu offers quite a few mouth watering choices. You can start off with an appetizer of Buffalo wings or hot cheesy chili con queso dip, or if you are wanting nachos or quesadillas, you can choose from beef or chicken and they are topped off with sour cream and handmade guacamole and fresh sliced jalapenos if you desire.
The dinner platters include your choice of tamales, beef or chicken enchiladas, beef or chicken tacos and they are all served with beans and rice. There is also a Tortilla soup served here. The soup consists of chicken broth, avocado slices and cheesy Monterrey jack cheese. I highly recommend the Steak Ranchero. This is a juicy mouth watering rib eye steak cooked to perfection and comes smothered in a tangy ranchero sauce and gooey melted jack cheese and rice and beans on the side. You can also request an order of flour or corn tortillas to have with your meal. They are brought to your table piping hot and fresh and are handmade right there in the restaurant while you wait. They come served with butter and honey.
There are daily lunch specials from 11am-4pm and the average price is around $ 7.00. The next time you want fine Mexican cuisine and a relaxing atmosphere, grab your keys and hop into your car and head on over here!
