    Has anyone eaten here? The menu looks pretty good on screen, but considering I can't taste the food through the screen was hoping to get some opinions from everyone. So input thoughts here please :nworthy:

    I haven't eaten at this restaurant. Were you aware that it's located north of Summerlin (according to the address posted on the restaurant website)? Will you have a rental car or personal vehicle?

    Good luck!

    Yes, we will have a personal vehicle. Thank you for catching that though because I didn't even notice the address. How far is Summerlin from the strip?

    That's actually Centennial Hills(I use to live off of Oso Blanca and Durango) and shop at that Albertsons. If there isn't any traffic, I would say it's about 25 min or so (maybe a few min less?)...it's pretty easy to get to as well. I15 N to 95N and get off on Durango. I've heard good things about it, my ex and his roommate would go there sometimes.

    Hi Jenny,

    Below is a cut-n-paste of my review about Leticia's on YELP!.

    Leticia's Mexican Cocina

    I was in Vegas last week and Leticia's was on my food list to try. Here is my review on my experience:

    Leticia's is a nice-looking restaurant. The d├ęcor is pleasing to the eye and they have patio dining. I opted for the inside. To start, they offer chips with a tomatillo sauce and a darker salsa which was really good. They also offer a small dish of refried beans. I ordered the Carnitas plate which comes with your choice of soup (they offered two) or a salad. I got the salad with the house vinaigrette. That vinaigrette was fabulous! The Carnitas plate came with refried beans, rice, guac and pico de gallo. The pork was fork tender and fragrant. The corn tortillas were warm. I totally enjoyed my meal. The service was good, albeit intrusive. I like attention to my table, but not so much where everyone was stopping by the table to ask how everything was. The waiter stopped by, the busboy stopped by, the host stopped by. I fully expected someone to walk in off the street to stop by and ask about my meal. I don't know if they have gotten some bad reviews and are trying to rectify the problem. All told, the experience was good and I am glad I went. I took a carryout and headed back to my hotel. I will definitely go to Leticia's Cocina my next trip.
