It is always fun to try a new restaurant when you go with a group of friends. La Perla isn’t exactly new – it has taken over where “Hector’s” used to be, but they have cleaned up the restaurant, and it is much easier to make a selection off of the large board by the counter. (And, if you have trouble with that there are printed brochures on the counter also.)

There is a wide array of food offerings, and the prices are very reasonable. We had our choice of 12 combinations, all including rice and beans; burritos, wet or enchilada style, tacos, tortas, tostadas, quesadillas, rolled tacos, nachos and fries, breakfast burritos, traditional Mexican breakfasts and Omelets. Of course, there is a wide selection of extras; a kids meal, desserts and drinks. Although there are some vegetarian specials, there are not any gluten-free items at this time.

The three of us each ordered something different, and we were all happy with our meals. Irene ordered the enchilada taco combination for $8.99 and she was very pleased with it. Candy had the vegetarian burrito, but asked to have bacon added. It was delicious. One of my favorite Mexican breakfasts is Machaca and after tasting La Perla’s, it is still one of my favorites.

We enjoyed talking to the person who took our order at the counter, and when she brought us our food, was pleasant and helpful. The entire time that we were there the flow of other patrons was non-stop. Many sat down at the tables; many had take out. There was not a time that there were not at least several people waiting for their food.

The time was fun. It was relatively quiet even though there was a television playing. I think La Perla is a winner.
