    First time at Las Luna's restaurant. Ordered Las luna's fajitas and they were amazing!!! Hubby ordered a burrito Las luna's and was excellent as well. We will be back for sure!!

  • *****

    Jessie, the manager, is an awesome guy! Really fun to talk to while sitting around and having a drink. $1 draw domestic tap beers and $1.99 margaritas make this place easy on the pocket book.

    Daily specials for lunch. No wait with good value

    Wow! Great guacamole and the Chili Relleno was amazing! My hubby had the beef fajitas and my sister had the seafood fajitas. They were very accommodating even though our large group showed up shortly before closing. Excellent staff and fresh yummy food! I can't wait to come back!

  • *****

    Wow! Really great food and good drink specials. Fun and friendly staff. I will be returning soon.

  • *****

    I love this place. I eat here at least once a week. The owner, Jesse, is always walking around helping out with a smile on his face, and honestly is probably one of the biggest reasons I keep coming back. Favorite Mexican restaurant in town, hands down.

  • *****

    The food is good; I especially like the steak street tacos. The cheese sauce comes in a generous portion. There are good beer specials nearly every day. Quickly becoming one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Joplin.

    Service was great, they were all incredibly friendly, even though we came in around 45 minutes before they close... Food was fantastic. we will definitely go back,
    even though they're around an hour and a half drive for us.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It wasn’t busy which initially worries us and there seemed to only be three working. The owner/bartender and a waitress and of course a cook. I quickly forgot about that worry because the owner and waitress were phenomenal and Quick. The food was also delicious.

    Yum yum yum. Absolutely amazing. Great service and kind staff. Great food. I did think that the guacamole could have been better. Great portion size. Will definitely go back.

    Excellent food. Excellent service! Highly recommended it.

    I enjoyed eating here. Had the street tacos for $10 that came with rice and beans. It comes with 4 tacos of your choice ; Carne Asada (steak), pork,chicken or carnitas. The steak was by far the best but all were good. The chips and salsa tastes good and is very mild. They have habanero sauce in the table that you can use to spicen up your salsa. My friends enjoyed their meals too. The place was clean and staff friendly. Nothing to say bad about this place

    The street tacos were fresh, the spicy green sauce fantastic, and the Sopapillas delicious!

    The bestest seasoned fruity boozy clay drinks ???

    This is hands down my favorite Mexican restaurant in Joplin! The owner, Jesse, is FANTASTIC! The customer service is top notch, the food is authentic, and the restaurant is always clean. My husband and I come here a couple of times a week and it’s never been anything but a first class experience. 100% recommend!

    Still the best Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten at! The owner is awesome and so personable and the staff is just as good! My 3 year old son loves it here and we do too! Thank you all!

  • *****

    Glad that Applebee's screwed up and wouldn't wait on us because that's how we found this place. Great service and awesome food.

  • *****

    Best place to experience traditional Mexican food! The flavor is beyond good and the staff makes you laugh and feel a part of the family. I will definitely be coming back and spreading the word!

  • *****

    Best Mexican restaurant in the four states!!! Street tacos are awesome!!!

  • *****

    Coming from Texas and enjoying all things Tex-Mex and growing up as a native Texan, I can without doubt tell you this is a wonderful authentic Mexican restaurant! The service is great and the typical Mexican friendliness is great for this restaurant and area! We have gotten tired in the area of inauthentic Mexican food! Btw, even asked for jalapeno's on the side and they used fresh jalapeno's and did it just like we do in Texas! The fresh jalapeno's were grilled with with a b...

    Best Mexican restaurant in Joplin and surrounding area!!!! Service is great, management is great, food is excellent! If you have never had the Molcajete you need to try it! We go at least once a week and have tried almost everything and we have not been disappointed.

  • *****

    Best margaritas in joplin. The service is more than friendly and so welcoming. The Felix burrito is my favorite. My friends and I love this place!

  • *****

    Went for the first time yesterday.. Server was great! The food was amazing!

  • *****

    Great Little Restaurant . Great Food and great portions . When we are in Joplin I always try to stop in .

  • *****

    I was first introduced to this place bc of work. We have it once a month for lunch here at the hotel I work at. It was amazing! I've since been several times to the restaurant with my family and they love it as well. Best prices and Mexican food in town by far!! I recommend the chicken fajita chimichanga, it's oh so good!!

  • *****

    This place is just great. They keep a special beer glass for me that belonged to my mother, a sort of antique 8oz Budweiser beer glass. I found a bunch of them after mom passed away from cancer. Just after she passed I was having some comfort food and beers with my brother from CA and we met Jesse, an outstanding individual. I brought him the next day that beer glass so I could have it anytime I come in for dinner. Each time without fail they always find that one singular small glass and bring it out to me. For me, that can not be beaten. Food is awesome and the service, well, it is the best in my opinion. #CancerSucks

    Very personable staff, fast service and dollar draws on beer!

  • *****

    This is our absolute favorite place to eat. Amazing fresh food at such a great price! Best regular margaritas and street tacos in town. We would eat here every day if we could afford it! Great staff, and every time we come everything is perfect! We will keep coming back and recommend you to everyone.

    Excellent food. Excellent service. And there was karaoke!

  • *****

    Glad we had the chance to try Los Lunas. Good food, good service, good margaritas. Some authentic Mexican and some Tex-Mex.

  • *****

    Best Mexican food

  • *****

    Got the Pollo Popeye. WAY too salty to eat straight but tolerable on the flour tortillas and guac salad they bring out. I asked if the corn side was fresh corn and not canned--they confirmed it was fresh but it is actually canned. It still had pretty good flavor despite being canned corn. Giving four stars due to the variety of the menu, which is nice.

  • *****

    Excellent restaurant with great service. Had a very special group of about 40 people there tonight. The staff was clearly not prepared but handled it with exceptional skill and class. The food was delicious and quantity was spot on
    Good work Los Luna's.

  • *****

    Never disappoints! From the greeting thru the end of the meal, they are on point. Wife tried the Wild Hibiscus Margarita, it's was a great twist on the drink. Food was quick, hot, and huge portions.

    This is our 3rd visit and we have enjoyed it every time.

  • *****

    Great ambiance, servers had great attitude and good came out fast. Street tacos were fantastic, awesome salsa and I think my husband had one of everything with his platter and loved it. We left stuffed!! I wouldn't call this Tex mex, rather authentic if you order the right dishes.

  • *****

    Very authentic, according to my very authentic Mexican palate. It was good, y'all. The tamales were just like my abuela would've made if I was Mexican. Service was so fun, friendly, and quick--even carrying a tune or two. Only downside was the lack of garish decor.

  • *****

    We've been there once, and I had the Mariachi Especial and it was even better than its description. It is my new favorite dish in Joplin. The best chicken fajitas anywhere can be found at Maria's and I love the machaca at Casa Montez, where they serve shredded beef fajita style. So it is really something for me to say that this dish at Los Lunas is just a bit better due to its exquisite flavors. My husband almost never likes the same things I like, but he wished he'd ordered that dish. Finally, Los Lunas also has a much better salsa than the other two, but, unfortunately, serves Coke instead of Pepsi (unlike the other two places). Maybe I should try their jalapeno margarita next time!

  • *****

    Looks pretty nice inside, service is good and friendly. Food is pretty Tex-Mex. we will come back if we are in town.

  • *****

    Excellent chorizo street tacos and great service! How about this value... 4 tacos with rice and beans and a soft drink for $12?!

  • *****

    This place is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The owner, Jesse is the most friendly guy ever. They have awesome wait staff and very delicious authentic food. If you haven't eaten here yet, you need to!

  • *****

    Gave 5 stars for the Queso Fundido, Salsa and Service. - The entrees were probably more like 4.5 stars but the Fundido should be a 6 and the salsa and service were a 5 so it averaged out to a 5.

    OMQF!!! (Oh My Queso Fundido!!!) The Fundido was bubbling gooey goodness with the best Chorizo I have had in a restaurant. The chips were warm and crisp and the salsa was so good we ordered some to take with us so we could snack on it later in the hotel. The wait staff was upbeat and on it.

    The entrees were good food too. The flavor was there but say they were a 4.5 because the filling in and on the crispy shells was so moist it actually caused them to not be crispy. Will say their refried beans were very tasty without being over bearing in spices.

    We were traveling through and saw the reviews so decided to stop. We were a little worried because no one else was there at 5 PM on Saturday and there was another Mexican restaurant down the road with several cars but we trusted our fellow Yelpers and they were right! - Definitely recommend this place. - Note: Great price on margaritas but driving so did not have one.

    Passing through Joplin and stopped here for dinner. The service was fantastic--friendly and attentive. The food was great. It was clean and roomy. Margaritas tasty and the salsa, yum.

  • *****

    I love this place!! The food is great!! Large bar selection with great prices as well and an all day happy hour with $1.99 margaritas! The service is great and very fast and super friendly! I also enjoy the a la carte menu when I just want a small snack. Good times here!

  • *****

    Picked this based on positive reviews and we were not disapointed. Great service. Big menu. Very affordable. The Margaritas are huge! definitely going back!

  • *****

    I was in town for work and stopped here based on the reviews. The service was fast and friendly. The salsa lacked flavor, yet the chicken fajitas were nearly too flavorful! The saltiness of the meat was a bit much for me, but it was a great flavor. I got the charro beans, and they were a good choice.

  • *****

    Great restaurant! The waiter had our table ready because he saw us walking in! Awesome salsa and super hot food that came out fresh. Definitely recommend!

  • *****

    The food was absolutely amazing! ! The waiters were very attentive and were there for anything we needed. I can't eat the chips so I asked for corn tortillas and butter and they were hot and soo good. The food was fast out and everything was great! We will come back again!!!!

  • *****

    The food and people were great. So nice to our daughter. They offered her everything under the sun and she still didn't eat. I thought it was so nice! Didn't cost a ton either! Will go back next time we come in town!

    Some say you should never go to a restaurant in its first week, but we broke that rule to try out Los Luna's. After the extremely short lifespan of an Italian restaurant in this newly remodeled building, I was eager to try out the latest addition to Joplin's growing roster of Mexican restaurants. Los Luna's did not disappoint! Fast, excellent, friendly service from staff who seemed genuinely eager to get this restaurant rolling...they even commented that their full drink menu isn't quite ready yet but will be very soon. The only negative about our entire visit was a very small portion of beans (maybe 2 tablespoons if that) but it was on a lunch special, so not a big problem! EVERYTHING else was amazing, especially the perfection of my steak strips with wonderfully spicy yet mildly citrusy green tomatillo sauce. I will order this again for sure. I also loved their salsa (not a small thing for me), wonderful soft tortillas, and their rice was fluffy and flavorful. I went for an avocado sliced on the side which was a great addition to my meal. My husband liked his shrimp chimichanga but says he plans to try something else on our next visit - and there will definitely be a next visit. The restaurant is large, well lit, and typical decor for a Mexican restaurant but definitely on the new and clean side of things in this building. There is extra parking in back, too. I'd recommend it to anyone and hope they keep up the great work!

    Excellent food! Great variety of Mexican food. Many unusual dishes that I have not seen before. Very clean. Nice quiet atmosphere. Very pleasant environment. Highly recommend!

    Great food Waiter was the best. Fair prices. Loco burrito is fantastic. I will come back

  • *****

    Awesome food. We had the burrito Loco.
    Amazing!!! Good margaritas and the coronas were cold. Beautiful atmosphere. Staff if very nice and definitely friendly. We had the chorizo cheese dip and it too was amazing. It is made in house and was delicious

    Only quirk is a possible language issue (or cooks that don't read their orders well) we got pork fajitas and a Hawaiiana salad with no tomato. Well she got the tomatoes regardless tho' I had no issues with my order.

    The salad was plated beautifully (even tho' it still had tomatoes) chicken was not cut through but my wife just ripped it apart. She at this time has eaten most all of it so it must be pretty good.

    The fajitas were a bacon freaks dream. The pobalno peppers could have been more in there (personal prefference) but all in all it was very good!

    Service came in bursts, with this place being only open 9 days that is reasonable. The wait staff was all very pleasant and kinda fun. Happy workers make happy customers...one waitress admitted her English was not too good so me being me I picked on her along with our waiter. They were unsure whether to pick back or not. (Again first visit so they don't know it's OK to give me crap back)

    Still I think we will come back and see what else there is to get.

    A great new mexican place! The lunch prices are way affordable, the dinner portions are plentiful, the margaritas are delicious and it has, by far, the best service staff of any mexican restaurant in joplin! They take the time to ask you the questions necessary to enjoy your meal, unlike some of the other places that just say, "What do you want?" (Looking at you habaneros...)

    Everyone always has a smile and the manager has come and checked on us every time we have been there so far. I've recommended it to everyone I know.

    My family and I have tried almost every Mexican restaurant in Joplin with varying success. So Sunday evening we decided to try Los Lunas. We were not disappointed. Chips were fresh. Salsa had a different consistency, true. Seemed to have been blended hard then refrigerated but it made for a heartier dip. Queso was creamy and delicious.

    Wife had a fajita burrito which was seasoned well and quite large. I had chile verde, my base line dish for all New Mexican restaurants. Pork was cooked well and wasn't overly fatty and the sauce was great, just the right amount of spice. All around very pleased. We will definitely be back and is very likely to become our regular Mexican spot.
