There is nothing outstanding about this restaurant but it's okay. The food was typical Mexican fare but I doubt if any ethnic Mexicans dine there, Everything was reasonably priced and the quantity of food and quality of service was good. But the margaritas were weak, almost without Tequila. The dining room seems noisy. I.doubt if I'll return.

I was taken here by a local who views La Siesta as the best Mexican in the area. I thought it was mostly average. I had the chicken mole. The sauce was rich with just a bit of spice but the chicken was completely doused in it. Rice and beans were good. There is plenty of parking and service was... More

This local spot doesn't prepare your order fresh. You cannot request certain ingredients to be left out because everything is made in advance. Including their margaritas. Outdated restaurant. Not very clean. The patio area is nice but usually full.

We used to frequent this restaurant often (until a competitor opened a couple miles across town - THAT one became our "go to"). We've had several dishes on the menu in the past, last night the Enchiladas Suiza and the Milanesa de Pollo were our choices. The enchiladas arrived, looking as though they'd spent quite a bit of time under... More

I was looking forward to something ethnic with a bit of spice. I ordered the la siesta burrito. The meat had no flavor the shell was gummy and the Pico de Gallo was chopped tomatoes and onion with no heat and was lack luster. First and last time I will patronize.

The food is well-prepared and the service is friendly without being intrusive. The menu is varied enough for picky eaters to find something and for ethnic cuisine buffs to be satisfied. Tidy restaurant that needs some warmth in its decor and initial greeting.

This is one of my favorite resturarants in town. The booths are a little shabby but I love the food and atmosphere. We always seem to have the same waiter, I like that. I order the enchiladas suiza and a flavored margarita. They never get old! Make sure to order queso with your table chips and salsa (soooo gooood).

I have been here a couple of times and it always is a nice time. The service is friendly. The pricing is reasonable. Very casual atmosphere. A couple of small areas to improve on - the salsa that came with the chips was very bland and thin. A good salsa should be chunky. The margarita was not overly cold. The... More

I'm never disappointed eating here. My husband always gets a burrito that's huge and he loves it. And I always get Roules Special. (Probably spelled that wrong). I always say I'm going to try something different but so far Ive not been able to break free from this particular one! It comes with tortillas seperate for you to add the... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch at La Siesta. We've recently moved to the area and have yet to find a Mexican restaurant to compare to those in the Chicago area. I asked the server if the tamales were made on site...he said yes. So, we both ordered a combination that included a taco, tostada and tamale. Well, the... More
