Eat at this Family-owned authentic place!

It is a little away from downtown but always packed since 1973 for lunch & dinner! I have known the Mom & the 3 sisters forever! Ask for whatever you want & you will get it! But have patience!

About ten of us piled into this Mexican restaurant tucked away in what looked like a mostly residential area. I had an order of the Camarones a la Diabla (spicy shrimp). It came with tortillas and I enjoyed every last bite of it. Really good dish. While the food receives high marks, it lacks in other areas. Atmosphere and value,... More

It's small. The mole was good, not great. The margaritas are from mix, but its a good mix. I was there on a Friday night and it was really crowded. Was just me, so I ate at the bar, but it's not a very comfortable bar. Just wooden stools, and it's a high waiter traffic area. On the whole, though,... More

Our son has been taking us to this restaurant for 15 years. And it has maintained quality throughout this time. La fiesta is a small place and can get very crowded. Unfortunately, it can also get noisy - it is not a place for quiet conversation. And the parking lot is small. But the food is good. Prices are reasonable.

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

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 was a little slow, considering... 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.
