Based on the previous review we decided to call to see if they were closed, found out that the address listed was the old address. I let the management know so they can correct it. I had the cheese and onion enchiladas with chili con carne on top instead of the standard sauce. That was a great decision! The chili... More

Very enjoyable evening with close friends. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. The temperature was very comfortable. (I generally find restaurants very cold in temperature) The music was very nice and very appropriate. But not too loud to cover up or drown out conversation. Our server was very attentive. Best of all the food was delicious.

I hear a lot of people rave about this restaurant but maybe they talk about someplace else. I visited their new location which used to be another Mexican restaurant. First they wanted to sit me in a section that was empty, I said I wanted to be with people and not alone and by myself. Their excuse was that the... More

Right next to La Quinta where we were staying so thought we'd give it a try. Very nice atmosphere, very good food, excellent service. My husband had the shrimp fajitas, the shrimp and vegetables were very fresh. I had the spinach enchiladas and they were also very good. As a vegetarian, I really appreciate it when a restaurant has a... More

I was very pleased to see that La Fiesta had reopened a location near Newberry Road. Their old location was very convenient for me, but I rarely Am looking for lunch near the 39th Ave. spot. The new location is larger and more comfortable, and a lot of the familiar faces are there. We were seated quickly, the food came... More

In Gainesville to look at zoo tech program at Santa Fe. This restaurant was about a mile away. Stopped expecting ok but it was very good. We were seated and greeted promptly, and chipped within seconds. They have a lunch menu and we both ordered from it. Both meals were large portions, cannot imagine what dinner portions would be. They... More

The menu, atmosphere and prices were very good and the service was excellent. However our tabs had an automatic 18% tip added upon which tax was improperly charged. Our party which included a mathematics professor, an attorney and three others with doctorates questioned a befuddled staff about this and they did adjust our bills. This isn't a reason not to...
