Feeling of being back in Mexico

Place is located very close to the Mountain View Caltrain station and is in the middle of a housing community. However, there is ample parking and the food is excellent. I really like the decor as it reminds me of the joints in Mexico with the bright colors and unique pieces on the wall. Service... read more

We had a great friendly greeting from the host who is also a talented artist and has some of his pieces hanging there. The chips are warm and crisp and slightly thicker so they're great - three salsa flavors come with it and I highly recommend the guacamole too! Grandma's special is great if you love nacho cheese covering things... More

I have had the opportunity to eat at La Fiesta now on a number off occasions, given this is a family members favorite local Mexican restaurant. I have always found the food to be good, but not exceptional. I always try one of Grandma's chicken special or other entry with Grandma's special sour cream/cheese sauce. There are many other Mexican... More

I love La Fiesta! I take my friends and family here when they come to visit and they want to go back every time they're in town. We love the food, the vibrant colors and inviting atmosphere, the margaritas, and most of all the amazing fresh baked chocolate cake!

Really great food and really great service! We loved La Fiesta. I had a quesadilla and the chicken was so moist and flavorful. It was really excellent. My husband had a chicken enchilada and he said it was really good. He had a beef taco which was not a flavorful. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. We will... More

Small, friendly restaurant. The mole was fantastic! Grandma's special would be a close second. Parking can be tight, but worth it.

We must have stopped by on a tough evening because we didn't experience what other reviewers did when they state this was the best Mexican food. I have eaten a lot of Mexican in various states and Mexico itself. The experience started off rocky when we waited in a line out the door to get in (one would think wow... More

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. If you ever find yourself in or near mountain view, do not miss this... More
