    Tucked off lil restaurant in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The food was ok. The green sauce was good. Waitress got my carry out order wrong. But I would return if I should ever be in the area again.

    Great food, great service!! They even made us some samples of some of the lesser known meats to try so we didn't have to order a full meal with it to try. I now have a new favorite taco!

    The food here is so delicious! So glad I live close so I can eat here all the time!

  • *****

    I'm a big chip person. And nothing like homemade tortilla chips. The chips here were good if dipped in the salsa. But plain they were not very good.The food was decent enough. The salsa and guacamole were delicious. The staff was very friendly. Kudos for that. The place was very clean, incl. Bathroom. The only other problem I had was they did not have combo choices. So you had to order rice and beans separately. For 2 adults and 1 child it was $44. I went to try one of their frozen drinks that I seen online, but I was driving so I could not. All in all if you are like me, give the place a try and see for yourself.

    I ordered through grubhub. Grubhub failed to send a driver to pickup my food. I got a call from the restaurant asking what my grubhub app was saying, my food had been done for 15 mins by this point. They informed me that the restaurant was closed but since i had already paid they would deliver it to me. Most places would have tossed my food and been done with it. Stellar service that went above and beyond what they had to!

  • *****

    Pretty good tacos. They have you salsa and lots of limes

    Authentic and excellent food. I had the torta. Substituted chicken for pork. Was very flavorful and nicely presented. They were rather busy but Margarita was on point !

    Awesome authentic food!!! Great menu, EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!! Best in Ft. Wayne.

  • *****

    The meal was wonderful and inexpensive for what you get!

    Service was fast and our server was so nice. I wish I would have gotten her name because I would request her next time.

    Highly recommend!

  • *****

    First time visit with my best friend. Hungry and anticipating good things and was not disappointed. Short of it: Best of everything I have had Mexican. Start with the chips and salsa and already youre experiencing excellence. The chips were warm and the green and red sauces tasted homemade. Guacamole appetizer was as good as it gets. Chorizo burrito, and $1.75 tacos on sale made for a very reasonable meal and a full stomach.
    The interior is nothing to write home about and they currently did not have beer and wine and repeatedly apologized for such and said they will have that back soon. None of that mattered in the whole experience. To top it off was genuinely friendly and attentive service from everyone we met including the cook who came out of the kitchen to check on us to ask us how our meal was!

  • *****

    Maggie was extremely pleasant, and provided great service! Food was excellent and very reasonably priced.

  • *****

    Probably the best Mexican joint in town! Outstanding food and service.
    Shout out to Maggie!! Thanks again!

  • *****

    The staff here are so friendly and attentive. The tacos de carne asada are AMAZING, however, I have never eaten anything here that was less than amazing. Highly recommend.

  • *****

    Thought we'd give Taqueria la Piata a try for the first time tonight and we were so pleased! I've had a mad craving for birria quesadillas y consome and this place delivered on that craving! We opted for carryout, and the woman I spoke with on the phone was very polite, and made sure the kitchen had everything they needed to make sure my order was spot on. Everything I asked to have placed on the side was, and the food was nice and hot at pickup. The consome was delicious and the meat in the quesadillas was tender and flavorful. The rice was subpar, but I've never been a huge fan of Spanish rice anyway. They offer a couple different salsas from habanero hot to mild tomatillo. And of course - we couldn't go without a few Mexican Cokes to wash it all down. Staff were all masked up and plexiglass was around the front counter for guest safety. So glad we tried this place - we will be ordering from here again!

  • *****

    real authentic flavor, definitely be coming back for more .

    My boyfriend and I got carry out and were hoping for some filling authentic Mexican food. We got what we were looking for. The prices are fantastic and the food is absolutely amazing. We can be picky eaters and they got it right! They also have vegetarian/vegan options if you adjust the food to fit your needs.

    My wife and I stopped by there on a lark to order carryout for dinner last week. The place was delightful, well-decorated and inviting. We loved the staff - enthusiastic, friendly. And we LOVED the food! It was fresh and seasoned well. Can't wait to go back with friends soon.

  • *****

    Pretty good tacos. They have you salsa and lots of limes

  • *****

    Good Mexican food. Everything I’ve tried so far has been delicious. The chips and salsa are good. They also have other sauces and some have a real kick.

  • *****

    Fajitas, the tacos you build yourself. The combo fajitas with a side of queso can soothe anyone's hunger, and then surpass what is needed.

    La Pinata has been open for for awhile and it just keeps getting better. Almost every visit, the owner greets each table ensuring that the visit is as expected. I haven't been let down yet.

  • *****

    Great salsa selection! The chicken tamale and chicken taco I had was very fresh! The meat was not greasy like other locations. Service was great and the staff was super friendly. I've found my new favorite local Mexican restaurant. I highly recommend!!!

  • *****

    Super friendly people - the manager and two others came to our table and spoke to us. My burrito was the largest I've ever seen. The calamari was excellent - crunchy and refreshing with ranch sauce and cucumber slices. My wife raved about her shrimp chimichanga. Very reasonable beer prices.

  • *****

    Menu online please

  • *****

    Great Place! Have been there many times and it never disappoints. Full bar is nice, they have Karaoke and Dancing on the weekends too!! My favorite meal would have to be the Carnitas tacos and their Salsas (Taco and Chip salsa!) very delicious. My wife is more of a carne asada taco/ sopes fan.

  • *****

    You need an online menu, with door dash Uber eats delivery.. carryout please

  • *****

    I just ate here with my son and nephew. This place is legit. The service was fantastic and the environment was clean and decorated tastefully. Beef quesadillas very good. Tamales very good. Asada and Pastor tacos very good. We will be back to try the rest of the menu!

  • *****

    VERY good food and service. Everyone is very friendly 10/10

  • *****

    Food was very good and staff friendly. I had the fajitas and wife had burrito. Both were delicious. We will definitely be back.

  • *****

    Nice clean spot.
    Great family service.
    Wonderful food output that made another spot in the past. Has full bar as well.

  • *****

    Really good Mexican fare. Tacos and Tamales are very well seasoned with unique flavors. Truly authentic. Will be back.

  • *****

    Place is awesome when it comes to the menu and pricing. Space was Danny's Italian Grill before. Food portions are generous , 2 tacos traditional style corn tortillas and meat of your choice with onions and cilantro filled me up I highly recommend trying this place!!

  • *****

    Your typical taco joint in Fort Wayne. Good food for a low price and they're open late! Perfect for an after work dinner. The cashier also told us they do karaoke late at night. All the servers and staff were super nice and would consistently check on our table.

  • *****

    Didn't have the highest expectations but was pleasantly surprised. Loved the green salsa and food was fresh and hot. Prices very reasonable.

  • *****

    Food is great. The tripa is probably the best I've had in Fort Wayne. The staff are nice and very attentive. Highly recommend this spot if your on this side of town already

  • *****

    Food was very good. They are a little slow, however they just opened 2 days ago. I am glad they are part of the neighborhood and wish them great success.

  • *****

    I had tortas asada but feel like they can put a bit more meat into it. Overall, service deserve 5 stars

  • *****

    One of the most consistent Mexican restaurants in Fort Wayne. They also have late hours, varied seating, a full bar, and lots of options if you want to cobble a bunch of side dishes into a yummy meal. One of these days I'll order a normal entree.
    I usually go with a couple tacos, a tamale, and some guac and chips, and one of the bottled sodas. So far, when I bring groups here, no complaints.
    This is a great place to eat at a somewhat not great location, where Danny's Italian Grill used to be, yet I don't see it in Yelp when I have the map set to North Clinton. At least they get more word of mouth and stay busier than Danny's did.
    Very friendly staff too. My only complaint would be about some of the karaoke noise, but I guess that would be on a couple of the singers, not the business, lol.

    My goal for 2019 was to visit 2 new spots a month for review. I've failed miserably, thus far, but don't count me out.... I hit the lotto here and my zest and vigor for reviews has been restored.
    I visited La Pinata for a quick "DUNCH"- that weird time between lunch and dinner, as my children say. The restaurant was quiet and extremely extremely clean. The TV's were on, but not obnoxiously loud. Seating is not open, there is a sign alerting customers to wait to be seated.
    I was greeted immediately upon entry. I requested a take out order of 2 tacos and chips and salsa. While waiting for my order, I did a walk around of the restaurant. It's very clean, orderly, and laid out well. There is plenty of leg and walkway room. I appreciate that in a space, no twisting sideways to get through to a table.
    My tacos were excellent, great flavor, full of meat, and just as ordered. I also appreciated that my tacos were served with slices of like, what a nice touch. The real hero of this visit was the chips and salsa. The chips were fried fresh and hand cut. Each chip was unique, not uniform like out of a bag. They were crisp and not salty. The salsa was good, not excellent but very good. The crispness and freshness of the chips made the flavor really pop.
    Parking is easy there is an open lot outside of the restaurant.
    I had a great visit here. I will return.

  • *****

    Great small restaurant never too busy service is outstanding. They have above par customer service and great food. One of the best restaurants in town

  • *****

    My wife and I ate there for the first time today. The service was good and the food was terrific. It's one of those times when I thought I would take half of it home for later, looked down, and realized I had eaten the whole thing. Extra points for no blaring music or blasting televisions. Thanks, we'll be back and recommend it.

  • *****

    Never dined in here, but carry out is always fast and fresh. Love the steak street style tacos. Good portions and flavor.

  • *****

    Service was super fast, food came out hot and fresh and tasted great! Chips and sauce are great too... try the green tomatillo sauce they serve along side the traditional red sauce. My niece and I loved it! I ordered a carnitas burrito... it was huge and i couldn't finish it. Prices are really decent. For two meals and water to drink, our bill was $15. I do recommend you try this place if you haven't done so yet!

  • *****

    Best Tacos in town, live in the opposite side of town but it’s worth the trip for sure. Selections are authentic Mexican street food and the selection/variety is great.

  • *****

    Time and time again I find myself returning to La Pinata for their pork tacos. It's a good experience most of the time but they do occasionally mess the order up (maybe do to miscommunication). But in the end I'm always satisfied with my taco.

  • *****

    The food was really good the waiters are friendly this place is very family friendly because the bar is not even noticable from the seats so it was PERFECT

  • *****

    seriously good. very affordable. worth a visit.

  • *****

    Wow! The food was outstanding and the prices were great. Everything we ordered was big and full. True Mexican food !

  • *****

    It was pretty good. Fairly inexpensive. A nice place, good food.

  • *****

    Very nice. We will be going back. Outside is very deceiving because the inside is very beautiful and Roomy.

  • *****

    A new must go to! Great food, clean fun and inviting. Awesome service and very accommodating. Karaoke and food. Drink specials and awesome menu choices. Thanks ?

  • *****

    Great food at a great price! Lots of variety and great wait staff!

  • *****

    Great Authentic Mexican food , for those foodies that are always looking for great tasting local restaurants the staff is very friendly courteous and Taqueria La Pinata is very clean , and family friendly and for large families they can accommodate

  • *****

    Excellent food and service. If you like good Mexican food try this place. Different, in a good way, from most restaurants in the area. Dont expect the usual menu!

  • *****

    Staff is always friendly, service is quick, and the food is fantastic! Best taco joint in town

  • *****

    Food is great, had shrimp Fajitas they were delicious. This restaurant is a family friendly great addition to Washington square on North Clinton.

  • *****

    We have been here a few times for dining in and carry out. Tonight we came here for my husband’s birthday. I made a reservation for our group of 15 in advance. They called me earlier that day to ask if we wanted the bar or dining room and to ask if it was for a birthday. They set up tables and decorated the tables with balloons and birthday tablecloths! It was so cute! The food is amazing, especially the chips and salsa. The green verde sauce is bomb! My go to are the tacos. For my husband’s birthday, the owner brought out a huge bottle of tequila and gave him a free snake bite shot and then my brother shouted “uno mas” (one more) and the owner gave him a second free tequila shot. Our friends loved it. It used to be an Italian place and they still have the Roman Coliseum on the window outside. It’s so cute inside. The dining area is well lit and the bar has lots of TV’s. It’s not been super busy when I’ve gone and the hostesses and waitresses are very nice! It’s also very clean. We will be back!

  • *****

    Everything was fantastic! Food, service, margaritas, all amazing. Best (authentic) Mexican in Fort Wayne (of those I've tried).

  • *****

    Coming from Chicago I have spent the last 2 years here looking for my “spot”. This place is it. The shrimp, al pastor tacos and the chicken fajitas are great. When the wife left town for a few days I ate here every night with no regrets.

  • *****

    Great Food! Excellent Service! 5 stars for sure. This is our new favorite in town. Be sure to check it out!

  • *****

    First time going and loved my time there. The food was absolutely great!! The staff was so welcoming and eagered make sure we were having a good time. A must try in Fort Wayne!!!
