Very good and convienent

We were staying at the Bristlecone Motel and wanted somewhere close by to eat that did not require driving. The La Fiesta is just down the street and very easy to walk to. What I did not expect was the great service and good food. We each tried a combination plate with me having the... read more

Great authentic food. Very busy on Sunday after church. The staff does handle the rush very well. The parking area is small

After a quick cruise around Ely I settled on eating at La Fiesta near my motel. Not much good to say about it. Dreary interior atmosphere, very slow service, so-so food and generic margaritas. It's kind of a tired looking place inside. Not worth a return trip.

Restaurants in Ely are scarce, so while passing through recently, I looked on Trip Advisor to see what was good in town. We chose the La Fiesta because it was within walking distance from our hotel. There were plenty of reviews, some said it was okay, some said it was good. We found the atmosphere to be depressing, and none... More

When we entered we were encouraged by the ambiance. This is a nicely laid-out restaurant. We sat down to excellent chips and salsa, including a one-of-a-king repollo salsa (cole slaw Mexican-style). Ordered enchiladas suiza and huevos rancheros. Service was great. Our orders arrived quickly. The portions were ample. The flavors, however, were simply bland. The eggs were over-salted. The frijoles... More

I was travelling with dogs so took takeout. Got a chile verde with pork (carnitas) which came with three tortillas and some chips and salsa. It was average, neither great nor bad. If you're in the mood for Mexican, it's okay. The restaurant itself would be good for sit-down with family.

The first place we ate in Ely was terrible, so I did a little more searching for reviews on our 2nd night there. We wanted take out because we were very tired and hungry after a day of exploring the nearby National Park. This place was great. Fast friendly service! I mean really fast, and really friendly. The food was... More

This is a typical small town restaurant, not a chain. I ordered a chicken burrito that was about as big around as a baseball bat, and about a foot long. It was excellent, the chicken seasoned with some type of southwest seasoning. Living in an area with a large hispanic population, I've eaten a lot of Mexican food, but I've... More

Ely, NV is short on good restaurants. La Fiesta is not much to look at but the food is very good and somewhat unusual. The on the table chips and salsa have an addition of a green dish that is very good. Overtime we pass through Ely we are surprised by how good this restaurant it.

We are in town for a class reunion & spotted this place while driving around. Sounded good, so we stopped in. We were greeted promptly at the door and seated immediately. It only took a moment for us to decide and we both ordered the small enchilada which came with rice and beans. While our meal was being prepared, a... More
