I go to this restaurant quite often, and the food, staff is great. I think the cook fell off the wagon this time. Our fajitas had absolutely no salt, pepper or any kind of season, told the waiter and he brought us salt and pepper which was not an improvement. I'll give them another chance bit was dissatisfied with my... More

We recently returned from LA and needed dinner, but at 9pm and something that was dairy free, gluten free and sugar free (because of a cleanse we're on). Umm, not fastfood. After striking out at Moe's, we drove over to Fiesta Mexicana. They don't close until 10pm, but we were the only people in the restaurant at 9pm. We got... More

Great food! You get plenty and the prices are very reasonable. The service, however, is the shining star. Super fast! Great place to go if you're on a short lunch break for work. Food is always consistently good. The chips are addictive.

Been eating at Fiesta Mexicana for over 6 years and never have had a bad meal. Service is great and Fish Tacos, Coctel de Camarones, Grilled Taco Salad and Fajitas are great. Must try this spot as you will not be disappointed

We've tried several Mexican restaurants in the area, but this is our favorite. Have been there a dozen times and never had a bad meal. On our last visit, service was good and speedy (as usual). The host and waiters were friendly and knew enough English for us mono-linguists to communicate OK. I ordered a burrito, and my wife ordered... More

The food is always hot and generous portions. Service is reasonable quick for refills. We are usually seated right away. They had some problems with the credit machine the other day which was frustrating but overall we love going here, great environment and good food that's affordable.

Went here on a Sunday. We were only given lunch menus. This is an abbreviated menu. I could've asked for full menu, as I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Upon checking out, my bill for my lunch was more than stated on the menu. The clerk pointed... More

Friendly, efficient servers. Quickly prepared, tasty food. Our fav is chilies poblanos but followed closely by the burrito primavera & choro pollo. Granted, I love the Mexican chorizo. We've yet to find better Mexican food - even in Texas .

Easy to get a table on a Saturday night, efficient service and very pleasant Fajitas. Only 2 Tortillas, but easy to order more. Worth visiting if looking for a change from American Grills and in the area.
