La Fiesta is a clean, sit down restaurant with full bar that serves the standard Mexican fare from combos accompanied by rice & beans to your Chile Verdes, Carne Asadas, Steak Rancheros, and Chicken Moles. But the reason I would not hesitate to return to La Fiesta are small things that set it apart from the standard: 1. Not only... More

We stopped in Elko on our west coast trip and had a Sunday dinner at La Fiesta. We did not arrive at the restaurant until after 7:00 PM. The restaurant was busy but it appeared that many of the tables were finishing their meals. The staff seemed busy and the waits a couple of times, for drink orders or food... More

I've eaten at a lot of Mexican restaurants in my life and this one has to one of the best! We were driving east on I-80 and spent the night in Elko, NV. After checking out other reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to take a chance on this one. It was a Sunday night and lots of locals eating here...that... More

We were referred to this place by a local bartender. The outside looked a little sketchy, but the locals were lined up out the door. In we went. Courteous, efficient staff, led by excellent cooks. Real fine dining in a family atmosphere.

We are from So California and love Mexican food. I think this restaurant was every bit as good as what we have in Ventura County. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Decor is typical of a restaurant that's been around a long time. But clean and good food, friendly staff so a good choice!

We travel through Elko several times a year and are always disappointed by the lack of good restaurants, especially after 11 hours on the road. Just by chance, when searching for another restaurant, we talked to a security guard in a hotel who referred us to La Fiesta. Although it was further by foot than he told us, once we... More

I had a nice meal at the restaurant and felt the chimichanga was very good. Service was friendly and the prices were very reasonable.

What a find! This little restaurant serves, hands down, the best Carne Asada I've ever had. And I have had a LOT! We went for lunch--generous portions, friendly service, reasonable prices. Two of us had large Margaritas-$8.50-and were pleased with the balance of lime and tequila. Fresh chips with homemade tomato salsa and a wonderful tangy cabbage salsa. (We had... More

Always great food!! Friendly people!! We will always be back!! Even though we miss our server who moved to Reno.. My husband really likes the bacon wrapped shrimp dish. I like a lot of the chicken entrees, I can't really say which one is my favorite.
