Consistent food, hit or miss service

I dined here a few times while I was in Ely. The food was consistently good but the service was hit or miss. Terrific margaritas, salsa, and fajitas. Not a fantastic place but still much better than some of the other options in town.

A wonderful restaurant. Kid friendly. The food is delicious. The staff is never the same, but they are friendly and attentive. Best Mexican food in town.

We stayed the night in Ely and chose this restaurant pretty much because it was right in front of our hotel. But what a surprise to find octopus on the menu in the middle of Nevada! It was fantastic, worth the trip. My family liked their dinners as well, but the highlight was the octopus, which they make in at... More

So so food, server rushed our order and never looked us on the eye. My husband liked the slaw that they serve with the chips and salsa. Beer was cold, food was fine but nothing I would ever go back for.

I have eaten at both Margerita's and La Fiesta and prefer the food at La Fiesta. Neither is as good as the Red Iguana in SLC but then few are. I sometimes question the ratings on this website as either being from family or friends. Beware a rating from a reviewer with only one review. Maybe its the power of... More

We walked from our motel, and were seated right away. We both ordered one of our favorites, chicken enchiladas suizas, and our server was happy to substitute whole beans for refried beans. Our entrees were pretty good, maybe a bit lacking in the usual tangy suiza (green) sauce, but the flavor was good.

We eat here often because of the well prepared food, service and atmosphere. I love the enchiladas, usually get the ground beef and cheese. The portions are nice and filling with even extra to take home for lunch. I had my first chalupa and the crunchy shell with plenty of filling and lettuce was a nice dinner. We eat late... More

The decor is a bit on the downtrodden side but the food was really good. Be sure to have the guacamole - homemade and superb! For a family of five we all found something we enjoyed and for us that is saying a lot. I would recommend stopping here for anyone.

The service was extremely poor .. when we did get our customary chips and salsa they also served a very tasty coleslaw with jalapenos. And that was about it .. the food was bland and tasted like Old El Paso ... we were not very happy

Food was good, but almost had too much cheese that had coagulated under the heat lamps. Friendly staff
