I highly recommend this restaurant. We have gone here for more than 20 years and it is still one of our favorite restaurants. You can get a $25 certificate for this restaurant on Reataurant.com. You won't be disappointed!

Right on Colorado Blvd in downtown Pasadena. The margaritas are tasty, the guacamole made fresh. Try the Mole, it's great!

We went here for dinner before attending a performance at the Pasadena Playhouse. (It's right around the corner!) I was a bit concerned about the service because it was mentioned in other reviews but our server took good care of us. The food was good but nothing outstanding.

I have been going to La Fiesta for over 10 years. Love the lunch specials, Charlie in the bar is great as is Marcos. The entire staff is always very pleasant and willing to make recommendations on specials and standard menu items. Love the enchiladas, tacos, burritos and the cadillac margs - the best house cadillac i have ever had.... More

When my friend and I came into this restaurant, there were two larger parties of about eight. I expected our service would be a little slower because of this but what I didn't expect was to have to beg for service. It took literally ten minutes just to get the server to take our order - a tostada and a... More

I have been going to this restaurant for fifteen years. The employees are all still there. We often run into the owners. The customers are familiar. The margaritas are really tasty. Their cheese enchiladas are a favorite as well as the El Mojo. They will make you a veggie taco if you request it. I get that often. The service... More

On Colorado Blvd in Pasadena near movie theaters and book store lies a great Mexican restaurant that is reasonably priced. The tortilla chips and salsa are a great start to the meal. All the items are freshly prepared. The service is also quite good though it can get busy during "happy hour".
