OK, we eat at La Fiesta a couple of times a week when we are in the area. The staff have all been working there for years. There seems to be no turnover. A good sign. The food is outstanding and unusual, this is not your throw it together burrito and taco joint. Unusual sauces, great traditional dishes, very friendly... More

Being a California native, I know good Mexican food from the first bite, and this place is one of our favorites. My family and I eat here religiously, and the wait staff all recognize us on our often visits. The food is amazing, and obviously authentic.

Try the grandma's special enchiladas. This is not an ordinary burrito joint. This is unique food and it is delicious.

Margarita menu is extensive but not cheap. Food is good and grandma special is excellent. Fridays are busy but midweek is easy together a table.

This ranks slightly better after one visit with our other favorite Mexican restaurants - Vive Sol and Palo Alto Sol. The enchiladas were great. The service was friendly & upbeat. They have great vegetarian options & they say that the oil is not meat based, & that their means & rice are also vegetarian.

My fave enchiladas are here - with sour cream sauce. Yummm. The basic dishes are pretty good here - not the best ever, but pretty good, anyway.
