Very good place, food was excellent, service was outstanding. We traveled 60 miles to eat there and was worth the trip.

We eat there at least once a week. Never had a bad meal there. Waiters are nice. Chips and salsa given when you get a table.

Enjoy some authentic Mexican food right here! Of course, my grandson ordered chicken nuggets and French fries. My husband, the French fry expert, says these are the best in town. My tamale was yummy!

Our favorite Mexican place. We have been going for years. Waited 30 minutes to get in, it was Cinco De Mayo and crazy busy. We were served our chips and salsa just after we sat down. We love the salsa. Drinks came quick. Mucho Grande Margarita. I love how it sounds and they are GOOD! Our food took a while... More

Best Mexican ever. The food and service were excellent! The steak was tender and had no fat on it. Reasonably priced. We will definitely be back.

La Fiesta was recommended to me by some locals while I was in town for the weekend. The chips were warm, I'll say that, but the salsa was kind of runny and not much flavor. I ordered the Fajitas Mexicana they were different but the flavor just didn't really grab me like I thought it would. This is kind of... More
