Not Closed! Chili con Carne is Spicy

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... read more

Another good spot. Quick service, and good food. They actually play Mexican Music in this restaurant which I think adds to the ambience. The waiter gave me a choice of hot or mild on the salsa. Don't get that everywhere? The food was really good. I had the number 8, the price was right and I was very satisfied. The... More

Our waitress was very nice and efficient. The complimentary chips and salsa were excellent and they were the best part of the meal. I ordered the cheese quesadilla with chicken. The chicken was marinated in something interesting. It was extremely salty and I could hardly stomach it and I love salt. My friend ordered the fish tacos. They were very... 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
