I ordered a takeout Sat night and I don't know if it was just because I was so hungry or what, but that was the best chicken chimichanga I've had since May, when I cooked my own at home. Even the chips were awesome. We usually go out of town to eat Mexican, glad we chose this last minute.

We stopped here twice on the way to and from Nags Head. Excellent chips and salsa and wide variety of very good mexican food. Reasonably priced. Fajitas were excellent - large portions. Chicken burrito w/ the chorizo was very, very good. Also tried the chili verde which I liked, very much. excellent service and ideal stopping place off 64. cheap.

Craving Mexican? I think this is the best in a 15+ mile radius, maybe more. Service is quick, good tasty food, ample portions, fun waitstaff, and chilly $2.99 Margaritas. The Shrimp Diablo lives up to it's name; when feeling less adventurous I'll go for the Shrimp al Mojo de Ajo. Bringing Ranch dressing along with the chips and salsa is... More

Good basic Mexican and great $2.99 margaritas! Food is always good, service is fast and friendly, drinks are cold, prices are reasonable--you cannot go wrong with La Fiesta.

I was looking for a place to eat at some place other than a fast food restaurant and came across the La Fiesta Mexican Restaurant in Tarboro. The restaurant is located in a shopping mall right off the highway leading to the Outer Banks. There was a good crowd for a Friday night and looked to be a mixture of... More

I travel a lot for business and go out of my way to stay away from the large, national food franchises when possible. While in Tarboro I ate at La Fiesta because it was close and I was craving something a little different. I believe this is a chain because I remember seeing the La Fiesta tables in FL at... More

This is the best casual restaurant in town! Try #72, Abuelo's Special. We go here at least twice a week (and we're pretty picky). The best salsa I've ever had anywhere!

The food at La Fiesta is great. At first it was too spicy for me, but I've learned they will keep the fire out of my dish, If I remember to request such. :-) The restaurant has really neat booths, that have La Fiesta carved into the top of the booth seat, in vivid colors, while the table tops are...

We stopped overnight in Tarboro, staying at the Best Western off of Hwy 64 (reviewed separately). I had noticed La Fiesta was listed on google maps close to the hotel and asked the hotel receptionist about it. She said that it was good - and she was right - it was excellent. It's in the Walmart Shopping center, nothing fancy... More
