“Friendly Service and Fresh Tasty Mexican Meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Small establishment, don't blink or you'll miss it!
Owner is a complete and total sweetheart! Very attentive and helpful.
Chips and salsa were promptly brought to our table. The regular salsa tasted fresh and flavorful. The owner also brought us the 'spicy' salsa which we decided amped up the flavor of the regular salsa when combined. Chips were hot and fresh and a little on the thicker size.
I ordered a very large combination platter which surprised the owner and earned me a smirk (he knew I couldn't finish it, and he was right).
The shredded beef taco was delicious! P.S. Order the shell crispy, words can't describe the beauty of this shell!
I also had a chile relleno and a chicken enchilada, both good, but not quite as good as the beef taco. Platter could have used a little salt.

Overall, between the quality of the food, the friendliness of the owner, freshness of ingredients and the quick delivery of the meal, I give this place a 5 out of 5!

“Good Basic Mexican Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Nothing fancy at La Fiesta, but it was good food and friendly service at a great price. Owner run and operated. A good place for a quick Mexican dinner and beer.

“It's ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The food is pretty tame. Even the " spicy" salsa didn't register more than 4 out of 10 on the. " kick" scale. Owner is a nice friendly, helpful guy to talk to. Probably the best feature !

“Authentic, homey, tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

You have to hunt a bit for this tiny place in Crescent City, it's off the beaten path a bit but well worth the effort. You'll probably be served by the owner, Jose, with friendly charm. They make everything homemade, and portions are generous. Prices are low. The decor is funky, the place is a local favorite.
