Can you get orders to go

I had call them before and a place an order to go.

Has this restaurant closed down? Went by there today and it looked like it was no longer open.

It's open. Go there all the time.

Does door dash or uber eats deliver from here

Yes

2 questions. Do they deliver? And do they have Mexican corn, or street corn?

No and no, but uber eats delivers from anywhere.

What is that

That....? What do you mean "What us that"?

I cant say enough great things about this authentic Mexican restaurant. From the most attentive staff to the most delicious food , nothing was over looked. Saw constant cleaning of surfaces while we were eating and they even had separate entrances for entering and exiting. Would definitely recommend anyone in the charleston area to check out this gem!

No handheld menus. All menus are displayed from your phone but mine didnt work so I ended up spending $30 cause I said i wanted a chicken burrito. When it came it did not come with the lettuce/ tomatoes/ sour cream/ and guac like usual Mexican diners. Discussed me

Outstanding staff and the food is packed with flavor! Stopped here for the first time on the way back from the beach to grab some take out. I ordered the torts and I could not stop stuffing my face. We also ordered the pork La Nortena and it was delicious as well. We will go back again for sure.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Charleston area. The staff here is great. They all work to make our dinning experience better. However, cannot be the best if the food isn't great, and this place does not disappoint! So many great options. My favorite is the Street Tacos! Also the use of technology makes paying for the check so much better than the back and forth with that dumb bill fold.

Mom has a very restricted diet and has never really cared for Mexican food. But she was greeted by the owner who listened to her dietary needs and questioned her about her preferences. Then he designed a special meal just for her. After cleaning her plate she told him it was the best restaurant meal she had eaten in a very long time. She's only 100 lbs but she cleaned hat large latter up completely!

This is by far the best and most authentic Mexican I've had in the Charleston area and possibly my whole life.I wanted to give this place 10 stars. The house made salsas and hot sauces are so good I've been here two days in a row. The street tacos make you want to get up and just slap somebody. I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff was friendly and quick to be at service. Ive driven by this place a hundred times and walked in by chance. So glad to have found this spot.

My husband and I eat here for lunch often. We absolutely love it! After moving here from Texas, I really missed good Mexican food. La Nortena is the best Mexican food in the Charleston area by far! Not only is the food great, but the people that work there are AMAZING! The owners are often there, and you can tell they really care for their customers! Brenda, Edgar, and Carlos are always there with a smile and always make sure we get everything we need! It is the best food and service you could ever ask for!!!

The food is incredibly authentic! The entire staff is very friendly and they'll bring you drink and chip refills before you have to ask for it. We have been going for years and haven't found any other place that we like as much. Highly reccomend!

Great place to enjoy some tasty seafood made with a Mexican twist. The flavors pop and the freshness is evident with each bite! It's a small, casual place in a strip mall. The service was spot-on, we never had to wait long when we needed something. It is my son-in-law's fave spot in Charleston - I hope to be back soon!

Their fajitas are simply awesome. I am not much of a fajitas person to be honest, but I took a chance and tried something different. I now have a new favorite dish at my new favorite restaurant. I also like that they give you several different salsas to try with your chips.

They were set up COVID-19 ready. Enter and exit only doors. We used our phones to take a picture of the scan bar to access the menu, so no menus to wipe and sanitize or even paper menus. Server's had face masks not all were wearing them properly. Our meal was good, not great. We had burritos, one was dry and inconsistent flavor throughout. Cream of chicken was good. Didn't use the bathroom. Restaurant was very clean, arrows on the floor to lead the way. Social distancing at the booths and tables. Service was very good.
