Still the authentic best!

Gudalajara is beautifully represented by this well-respected Mexican restaurant. Everything is made from scratch and with great care with the freshest of ingredients. You will not find tamales this good anywhere else in the area. The masa is light and practically melts in your mouth. The fillings are generous and tasty.

This is an unpretentious place with an extensive menu. Good service and beer selection. The food is excellent. I particularly like the Mushroom Quasedillas. Reasonably priced.

Trip Advisor brought us here. We had a large group. Not much curb appeal, but don't let that stop you. It's homey inside. But beware: they only allow split checks to be paid in cash. Also, no liquor license, so you can't have a margarita or beer with your meal. That said, this is true Mexican cuisine. No hard shell... More

An extensive Mexican menu, good food, service, and atmosphere. A nice addition to Depot Town. Really fun to sit outside during Depot Town's summer Thursday Cruise Nights.

We decided to try this local restaurant while staying in Ypsilanti this past July. This is definitely a great family run eatery...and we enjoyed both our delicious meals and time to unwind and relax...we highly recommend this restaurant. it is most definitely not a chain restaurant and therefore the dishes are unique and flavorful. We always enjoy eating at family... More

I've not been to La Fiesta Mexicana for a few years, but a group of us went last evening. I'd forgotten how good is the food, and how much I enjoyed eating there. It's a small, informal, family-owned and run place -- if you are looking for a "chain-type experience", this isn't it. We had guacamole, salsa (very spicy!) and... More

Owned by Mexican couple. He does the cooking with one assistant. Every dish from scratch, with homemade tortillas. Dishes from many parts of Mexico. Quezo Fundido appetizer of melted Chihuahua cheese, chorizo or not, small fresh warm tortillas, with salsa melts in my mouth! Every dish is delicious, beautiful. All served with rice and the best refried beans I've ever... More

La Fiesta is the best! Authentic Mexican food excellently preparedly and served by the owners. You will love finding this small gem of a restaurant and telling others about it. BYO beer or wine or enjoy a soda from Mexico with your meal.

I chose La Fiesta for my birthday dinner. After having read the reviews, I noticed a mix of great and some poor review. I spoke with friends and they told me their experience had been good so we decided to try it for my birthday. I couldn't have been happier. The owner immediately welcomed me when I walked in the...

I've had better and I've had worse. No chips/salsa served without ordering/paying. Service was slow - only one older woman. Food as expected.
