This was a great choice for me and my family. We are from out of town and this restaurant was close to my sons house. What a find! We ordered out 4 meals and everyone was so pleased. The food was so wonderful and the staff was as so friendly! I have not had much Mexican food this tasty before! My choice when we come back to Madison.
I've been coming to La Penca since it's grand opening. The food has been consistently good quality and tastes absolutely amazing! Whether I'm getting food to go or dining in, the staff always has great quality of service and makes me- and any others I bring- feel like family. I love La Penca!!!
We were very happy with our food and the service. And we'll be happy to go back to dine-in once you know, Covid is over. But unfortunately the amount of garbage created by a takeout order was enough to keep us away for now. I know, takeout creates considerable trash, but this was excessive. Everything was in large styrofoam containers. It was appropriate for the kids meal, but both of our burritos came in styrofoam when it seemed that a simple metal foil would have been more than adequate. The styrofoam horchata cup was gigantic, which would have been okay if it had been full of horchata, but when liquid ran out I was dismayed to find that the cup was exactly half full of crushed ice.
I went here for the first time tonight and ordered the chicken fajitas. It came with rice, beans, homemade chips and salsa. It was the best food I've had in a long time. The beans were the best I have ever had. There was so much food I have dinner for tomorrow too. I will definitely go back.
