Love eating at La Fiesta. Excellent food, varied menu, and great prices. The owner does the cooking and if you are unhappy with your meal I guess you just don't know Mexican food because she does a wickedly good job!

I had lunch here and was pleased with the quality and taste. It was nice and hot when delivered. It has a fairly typical menu with the ability to splurge a bit into some fancier choices, but I stuck with one of the traditional plates (burrito, taco, rice and beans). The place isn't fancy, but the food is good at... More

We eat here often for lunch, predictably good quality fresh food, especially good fish, love the mild salsa, good if you are sensitive to chemical additives since they don't seem to use them.

La Fiesta is pretty commonly referred to as the best Mexican food in town. It's a little on the divey side compared to the competition, but their food is hot and fresh every time I eat here. They have a great lunch buffet that's pretty cheap and a plethora of plate options if you're looking for something specific. I have... More

When visiting this is the place to go for a south of the border experience without a passport. Guacamole is very good (get a large) along with chips.

I used to go here over 20 years ago. We were always greeted by a smiling old man. He was so nice. The food then was very tasty. I guess now they are gone and they sold out to the people that used to work for them? Anyway, the food is pretty bad. I was actually shocked. For a place... More

I when here with some coworkers after work and was pleasantly surprised. It is a small place that looks a bit run down and you order at the counter and they bring it to you. I didn't have very high expectations. It has a variety of Mexican and seafood on the menu. Since I love seafood I took my chances... More

Note the title of my review... I was not looking for a fancy dinner. The walk-up and order system in this restaurant also suggests that it is not fine dining. Most of the items leaving the kitchen looked great, but I was told that it was the best fish and chips in town. As an outsider, I can only assume... More

Great Mexican food as well as burgers, sandwiches and fried fish, all good. nice assortment of south of the border cervezas.... More
