Nice open view of the mountains next to the tracks. It was a beautiful day and would have enjoyed eating outside but the patio has limited seating. Friendly serves in funky uniforms. Serving size is adequate, food could have been served hotter.

The atmosphere is very authentic and the service is awesome! The ladies here are friendly, talkative and down to earth. I highly recommend the blended lime margaritas, they put you on the beaches of Mexico. Ive eaten here a few times during my stays in Smithers and the food and service never disappoint me. This is a true gem.

Slipped up to Smithers on an overnight trip and was excited to try some Mexican food out. The inside looked neat, kind of touristy, but I chose the patio since it was such a nice evening. I had a taco bowl featuring pineapple and chicken with some rice and refried beans. It was done well, with a few touches to... More

We had a great dinner at Fiesta Mexicana! After a disappointing experience at another local restaurant I was unsure about taking a chance on a recommendation. No regrets here! The atmosphere of this place is very friendly and everything, down to the bar and floors, looks straight out of Mexico. When we walked in we were greeted by the servers... More

Good soup, great quesadillas, and excellent enchiladas. Very fresh tasting. Not real spicy. Could be more spicy for us, but lots of delicious and interesting favors. Reasonable cost for BC. (Lunch for two was about $30.) Excellent service. Reasonable wait time for freshly cooked food, Saturday at 1:30. (About 15 minutes) Open 11-3 for lunch; reopens at 5:00 for dinner.

Food is always great and tastes very fresh. We especially love the yam wedges with the spicy mayo. Staff is always super friendly and eager to help. One thing I don't like is that all the mixed drinks are made with lime. I got a banana smoothie and it didnt say it was made with lime but it was (bad... More

I travel thought BC and this place rates up there with some of the great smaller community locally run restaurant's. A must to eat at in Smithers.

I have been enjoying Mexican food since my first in Arizona over 45 years ago. The unusual blend of flavors in the enchiladas I had here was outstanding. The house salad was a mix of fresh lettuces and veggies with a very tasty house dressing. There was no room for dessert although they looked tempting.
