Friendly spot for Mexican food.

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... read 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.

I dined here recently with a friend--We both really enjoy some good Mexican food. I did enjoy their fresh cabbage salsa--it was tasty & fresh! I had the Picadillo Enchilada--it was okay, but not fabulous. My friend had a Chimichanga. The prices were reasonable & the servings were Huge! We dined at lunchtime & it was quite popular. I enjoyed... More

Ate here in Sept 2014 based on other TA reviews and were not disappointed - friendly service, local family atmosphere, massive menu of options, huge serves of delicious food and very reasonable prices on food and drink - they provide corn chips, salsa and cabbage salad as soon as you sit down - add a Corona, a Margarita, a seafood...

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
