Trapped in the 70's Mexico

A very busy hole in the wall that makes you feel like you have found a local secret spot but it's full of people travelling through. Food is plentiful, service is prompt and the atmosphere is lively.

Based on other reviews we stopped in on our way through town. The food was amazing! Some of the best Mexican food I have had in quite a long time. The Chili Verde was delicious and the cabbage salsa was very unexpectedly good. We have already told friends headed to Elko on business this next week, they have to stop... More

Quaint family Mexican restaurant. Within walking distance from our downtown Inn. Very busy on a Sunday nite, very friendly and attentive wait staff, however, it took over an hour to receive our meal of an enchilada plate and Chalupa plate! Authentic homemade Mexican fare was good and portions were large. We would return to this restaurant as long as we... More

As far as a sit-down dinner type Mexican restaurant, La Fiesta! takes the cake in Elko. The dining atmosphere is great. Food tastes amazing with a good menu variety. Service is adequate and the dining area does include a bar. Prices are about average. 5/5, would recommend!

In addition to reviewers, locals recommended. Though not spicy, the chile verde was some of the most flavorful we've had in a restaurant. The rice and beans were better than average. The chips were clearly cooked in house and they offered both salsa and a type of pico de gallo made with cabbage. The margaritas tasted like they should (unlike... More

La Fiesta is one of the best of the Mexican restaurants in Elko and a favorite among both gringos and Mexicans alike. Food is good, plentiful and tasty, and service is fast and efficient. You might want to try a sopapilla for dessert - a dish made of triangles of fried flat bread, sprinkled with cinnamon, doused with strawberries and... More

Lunch here on a Saturday afternoon, place was fairly busy. There was only couple waitstaff handling probably 30 people. Ordered shrimp and lobster dish for a little under $30. Came with rice/cheese and beans/guacamole/tortilla. First came the usual chips and salsa plus cabbage slaw. Cabbage slaw tasted pickled, I prefer the one at Sergio's better. Then the main dish came... More

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.
