I had fajitas, they had burnt taste. Waiter was very abrupt, and never asked if we wanted refills. The music was so loud, you had to scream at each other to talk. I will not be back.

We've been eating here every fall for the past six years on our way to Branson. We've always enjoyed it, but this time, we were disappointed. It seemed to be a bit run-down and the food wasn't quite like we remembered it. The salsa was very mediocre, however the margaritas were good. Will check TripAdvisor before visiting another time.

Just moved from Chicago and was looking for a good Mexican restaurant. This place serves the most authentic food in town. The portions are generous and they have a good tequila selection. My folks are from Mexico and rave about the food. You can't ask for better than that. This is my go to Mexican place.

This restaurant was my favorite for years. I went many times. Unfortunately, it kept getting dirtier and dirtier. The menus were filthy and gross to even touch. The drink glasses smelled like they were dipped in bleach instead of washed.

Living in California we have many Mexican restaurants that serve authentic Mexican food and La Fiesta is equal to our mediocre ones. The building is in need of paint and a remodel but the food was good. We especially liked their salsa and taco salad with black beans and chicken. The Friday special is the taco salad. The tortilla salad... More

Have been there 2x now. It is generally an authentic experience. The serving of refried beans they serve with their dishes is huge-too much!

We always love their chips & salsa, and it's worth the $3.50 for a cup of hot white cheese sauce. I recommend the Chimichangas (soft, not fried) with grilled chicken (it has no onions or peppers) with the cheese sauce (it comes with red sauce too, but I don't care for it!) It's a big meal (and comes with beans)... More

I'll start with the upside. The food was tasty and in a decent serving size. Downhill from here. Presentation was zero. Service was quirky, over attentive. We felt pestered to make a choice. The server was trying hard. Language was clearly an issue. I know it is not "pc" to call that out, but it definitely affected our service. The... More

After a 3 hour drive, I was pretty hungry. We chose this restaurant, as Mexican sounded good. What a disappointment. I know if the chips & salsa are not good, that's going to be the rest of the meal...well it came true. The chips tasted very generic & fresh out of a knock off bag on the grocery store shelf....
