    Delicious! This restaurant has such a warm family atmosphere and they put a lot of care into the food they cook. Elotitos, carne asada, and vegetarian bowl were all very tasty.

    I came here with my children, and was in love with the colorful atmosphere, aesthetic and little selfie station they had! The food was so good and the owner was incredibly attentive and kind! We will definitely be back.

    Hands down my new favorite restaurant for a fresh take on authentic Mexican food! Unique dishes, super friendly owner, great food and presentation, and a really cool atmosphere. We had an arbol chile and peanut salsa that was incredible, their homemade tortillas were so soft and light, and their agua frescas were all homemade with no additives, just fresh fruit. The owner, Daniel, told us they have 25 different salsas in-house for various recipes, which was super impressive! We will be going back here frequently and highly recommend checking it out!

    Omg! Out of all the Mexican restaurants I’ve been to by far this is my favorite!! Me and my friends really enjoyed it, the place is so beautiful and vibrant, the waiter had a positive vibe and was so kind. Flavors were so delicious and authentic, my favorite was the mango cheesecake!! I definitely recommend this restaurant, it has so much unique Mexican dishes and if you’re looking for something new and authentic it’s here!

    La Dona Cocina Mexicana is a cozy and vibrant restaurant off of Horsepen. The service is attentive and warm. I had the horchata and tacos quesabirria and they were phenomenal! Highly recommend finishing with the house made coffee with beans from Mexico, it was all great. I’ll definitely be back with my whole family!

    Extremely happy with our lunch today! The menu is very well thought out, the service is friendly, and the food is delicious. We ordered the Guacamole Diablo, agua de Jamaica, Mexican coffee, quesadillas de tinga, chiles rellenos, and picaditas de cecina. Everything we ordered came out at a reasonable time, but more importantly we were blown away by the food, the star of our visit. There’s a distinctive touch of Guerrero flavor to each one of the dishes and if you’re unfamiliar with it, I encourage you to try them. You will appreciate the fresh ingredients and the execution. We will be back as soon as we are able. ❤️👌

    We had a great experience at La Doña Cocina Mexicana for dinner. We went for an impromptu dinner after I had heard about this restaurant on our local facebook group.
    The owner Daniel is from Guerrero in South Mexico. The food is flavorful and made with a lot of care.

    We had our 10 month old babies with us and they seated us right away and took our order for our apps and babies’ food right away. They were very accommodating with our request. The owner’s mother made fresh corn tortillas with queso fresco. The tortillas were pink in color (beet mixed with masa during making the dough).

    For app we had guacamole, it was fresh and bursting with flavor.

    The menu was new and different to me. Our server Oscar and the owner Daniel helped us decide what to get.

    We got picaditas with chicken and one of each sauce – green tomatillo, red tomato and guajillo pepper! The shredded chicken was tender and well cooked (My babies approved). My favorite sauce was the guajillo pepper. Just the right amount of heat!

    Quesadillas fritas with mexican potatoes was the star for me! Think a fried corn tortilla filled with oaxaca cheese (stringy and moist), onions, potatoes and served with consommé which the owner recommended we pour over the quesadillas before eating. It was crunchy on the outside and soft potatoes on the inside. A flavor and texture bomb.

    Our server Oscar checked on us numerous times and made sure we were comfortable.

    I am glad to have experienced their culture and family recipes! And will certainly be back!

    Would give 10 stars if I could. The meal was delicious, the atmosphere is clean, nice and welcoming. Our server was outstanding and service is friendly. I HIGHLY recommend this place if you’re looking for traditional Mexican cuisine.
    We really loved how authentic the food was made. They have “cafe de olla” a delicious coffee made with cinnamon in a clay pot. Just a wonderful dining! I’ll definitely come back!

    To start off the place looked so wonderful, such vibrant colors and a feeling of good energy!! We had the frijoles puercos and fresh guacamole as our appetizer and they were delicious! Felix was so sweet and such an amazing waiter! The restaurants menu is based off family recipes and they did not disappoint. We also had the Tacos al Pastor and we devoured them. I had the tamale’s verdes, they were the best tamales I’ve ever had, so hot and soft. Everything was made with so much flavor and care! If you’re looking for REAL home made Mexican food this is the place to go to!!

    Walking through the door you experience the different smells and see the colorful cultural ornaments and decorations that blend very well together. The menu has a good layout making it easy to decide what you’d like to eat. I ordered the Pozole, picaditas, and the queso fundido; all tasted amazing super flavorful and homey. I really enjoyed eating at this lovely restaurant and would recommend it to anyone.
