I had mixed feelings. Went on a Sunday afternoon, not very busy but still took them 28 minutes to bring out our appetizer. Then we waited another 20 minutes for our order, which we put in at the same time as the appetizer. The waiter brought beef tacos instead of chicken, so more waiting. Drinks were not attended to promptly.... More

We love the food and wait staff in here. It does tend to get busy, but that's what happens when you have good food, good drinks, and a good staff! The top shelf margarita is definitely worth buying.

Had a combo with a burrito and a chalupa. Rice was amazing. I never eat the refried beans, but that's just me. I'm sure they were good of you're into them... Soda refills were timely, as was the nachos and salsa. Mom had a blended margarita, her favorite. She loved it. I had a sip, tasty! I was driving or... More

We stayed in Elko last year and ate at La Fiesta; on a second visit to Elko this year, we were happy to go back to the restaurant for more good food. As others have noted, the service is a bit slow--they could probably add another waiter at dinner time--but, once ordered, the food arrived quickly, and was very good.... More

the food was very good . As usual for US the servings were twice as large as they needed to be. Still heady after the large margarita consumed three hours ago! Great place for a fun casual night!

This is a busy place so arrive before the rush and/or be prepared to wait. Service is somewhat slow but the chips and salsa make it bearable. The Mexican food is pretty standard and tasty but not really remarkable. The walls are covered with polaroid photos of diners in huge sombreros so wear yours and you'll at least be noticed.

We had dinner there at the close of the Cowboy poetry festival, so there was still a good sized crowd. The restaurant could use a little updating, but more importantly a thorough cleaning! Nothing like reaching down to pick up your chair and put your hand on something sticky! That being said, the rest of our experience was good. Waiters... More

We have always gotten good food here. The servers are always nice, but sometimes a little slow. Usually very busy and noisy.
