Chips and salsa were good. Service was good and food was quick and seasoned perfectly. Dinner cost was excellent along with the evening. Will be a returning customer, thank you!

My wife and I visited Fiesta Tapatia for Valentines day. Not real busy. They had a man singing and playing a guitar, he plays every Friday. Very nice atmosphere.

I discovered this place when I left my Jeep for an oil change across the street. The food was so good, I now go regularly when I want good mexican food for lunch. The salsa and chips are not the best I have had, but the food is great and the prices are very reasonable.

We were passing through South Bend when we asked locals. We're to get "the real deal" Mexican food.. the sent us to Fiesta T's. Spot on. And the service was spectacular! I asked for a variation of a menu item. With hard work on the service side ( my Spanish explanation was poor), my meal came out spot on! Talk... More

We are from Arizona and were really missing some Mexican food - been on the road for a while. I read in Flavor574 that Fiesta Tapatia was their favorite Mishawaka Mexican restaurant so we gave it a try. Not bad. Looks like the building was an old Wendys Restaurant. The salsa was very good. Mild, no hot sauce. Chips were... More

Actually authentic Mexican food! For starters the mole is to die for! You really can't find mole at any other restaurant in our area! At least I haven't found any yet! Second, my whole family can eat there for under $30! We have a family of four and prefer to eat at local restaurants like this! We have seen the... More

My taste buds have a fine and very picky meter for Mexican food; my stepfather of 27 years is Mexican so I need the real thing. This place does not disappoint. And I truly enjoyed everything and the service was excellent. Bonus: they had a guy playing the guitar mariachi-style. What a treat!

I frequent this small Mexican place and have never ever had a poor experience. They are faster than Taco Bell down the street and there food is great. Chips and Salsa are among the best!

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. We dine here frequently enough that the hostess knows us and greets us by name. The designation of the place is a bit of a misnomer as the portions are not typical of a tapas restaurant. They are standard or on the more generous size with the prices extremely reasonable. Locals... More
