Used to be pretty good

But has slipped lately. My go-to Mexican food choice is carne asade and I always order it here. Used to be a good cut of meat prepared just right. But now it's a piece of shoe leather over cooked and nasty. The ambience is cheesy Mexican - which isn't bad if the food is good. But over time the... read more

They charged me an extra dollar something for jalapeños and Pico de gallo when I think the nachos came with Pico already but they took my menu away so I couldn't check. Nachos were good though. Really cheesy.

I have eaten at this restaurant countless times. I am from New Mexico and while the sauces are not as spicy as I prefer, the staff are happy to take it up a notch for you on request.

This review has nothing to do with the food and everything to do with the staff. We were moving a friend to College Park and having eaten at La Fiesta several years ago decided to try it again. We had our 5 pound dog with us and called ahead to see if we could sit on the patio with her.... More

After several visits due to convenience, La Fiesta disappoints again. Mediocre food, lackadaisical service, and poor quality beverages. Loud and marginally clean, it is best to skip this one and choose one of the many area restaurants.

They have an outdoor patio which is nice but it can be very hot in the summer as the umbrellas only do so much. We also hang out in the bar area. Buckets of bottled domestic lights are 4 for $10, hard to beat. The food is pretty good if you get past the average chips and salsa.

Don't eat here unless you have no other option. Salsa has to be out of a jar, and retried beans straight from a can. I had chicken soft tacos and the tortillas were right out of the package, not even fried a tiny bit. My husband said the margarita was good. Cheap prices for food.

It's such a shame that this place is so terrible since there are no decent Mexican restaurants in the area. I swear this place uses Mozzarella cheese on its dishes and it's far, far overpriced.

Average place, prices, service. The food portions were big. I would describe it as a glorified fast food resturant. I would eat there again.
