The food was delicious. Our server was attentive without interrupting us. The decor was stupendous. It was worth the stop! It's right on the road leading out of town toward Mesa Verde.

We went to Fiesta Mexicans for the Jumbo Margarita happy hour special, supposedly $5. We told the waiter, he said, "the special", we replied "yes". I asked if they had flavors, again, "yes". We both had Strawberry Margaritas, which we were billed full price for (twice the special rate). When we asked the waiter, he went to check and found... More

We received great attentive service. Our drinks food was served quickly. It was marvelous and very tasty. Chips were fresh and the salsa was home made. The margaritas were wonderful and large! Recommend their back rooms. Beautiful ambience with large potted plants bright paintings and gear seating. Reasonably priced food and drink. We will visit again.

We have been coming here on and off for years. While it was never great it has definitely declined. The food gas gotten worse and the place is dirty. What are they thinking?

Ate twice during our staying in Cortez. Simple tasty dishes served in sympathetic atmosphere with right portions adjusted to starved customers. A good dinner for two combination. Clean place easy accessible to main road. Stuff very positive and eager to assist upon choosing relevant meals not to ne too spicy.

I have avoided this restaurant for quite some time due to a bad experience. I was finally persuaded by a friend to give it a shot now that it's under new management. The food was just OK. It was ridiculously overpriced. Drinks were also overpriced. I won't be going back.

Our favorite food is Mexican. Our favorite place to eat it is here. In our opinion it is better here than can be found in the River Walk in San Antonio. We always order their cheese enchiladas with a side of guacamole.
