Both my wife and I had very bland tasting dishes. I had the burrito del Mar and she had a shrimp quesadilla. The salsa is also very bland tomato tasting but then has some heat. We won't be returning after paying $40 for 2 terrible entrees.

As stated before, this is our fall back restaurant for dining out. This means if our minds draw a blank of where to go to eat, we fall back on our frequent haunt, Fiesta Mexicana. There seems to be a rise and fall for quality, service and now they are on the rise again. Yes the menu has higher prices... More

We went here for dinner tonight but did not eat much of our meals. The food was not just bad, it was gross. My husband felt sick to his stomach when we got home. We will never go back and will not recommend this restaurant to others.

The food and atmosphere here were excellent. The prices were good as well. My only complaint was that we felt a bit rushed by the waiter.

My husband and I were so disappointed with the service and food at Fiesta during our last dining experience that we will never be returning! Every aspect of the meal was terrible - our service, the chips and salsa (warm salsa!), the margaritas (warm "frozen" margaritas too!!), and the mexican food itself (truly unedible). Recommend you look elsewhere for tasty... More

Dinner last night was disappointing. Fiesta used to be the best Mexican restaurant in Rochester, but that has changed over the last couple of years. The service was good but the food was bland. The margaritas were watered down and tasteless. Very sad to see. We went for a birthday dinner and I was embarrassed that I had suggested it.... More

We were greeted and seated. The chips and salsa arrived, and we were disappointed in the bland chips they served. The salsa was quite tasty. I ordered the chili relleno and enchilada combo and found both to be good. My hubby ordered the steak tacos and he liked those, as well. If it weren't for the chips, we would go... More

Good food, usually good experience. Today the waiter brought flour shells to a person who was allergic to flour, who ordered corn. He argued and was very rude. Bad day, I do not know, but I had to tell him three times the person was allergic, she could not eat it. Finally rep,aced it. Very rude fellow, ruined the whole... More

We like to frequently try new restaurants, but when we are stumped of where to go, Fiesta is our solid fallback choice. Always friendly, always great service and good spicy (if you want spicy, we do) entrees at a fair price. There was a time a year or so ago when this place seemed to be going downhill. Now they...

We have dined at fiesta cafe for many years, they have excellent chips and salsa, great margaritas and the menu is huge! My husband and I usually split the fajita combo. Servers are always friendly and food arrives hot as fast🙌🌟
