This excellent, relaxed Mexican restaurant is one of my favorites. It has a relaxed atmosphere and reasonable prices. I particularly like their burritos. Although located on Colorado Blvd. in downtown Pasadena, the parking is usually pretty easy because there is a parking lot at the back.

The staff is very friendly which makes the service great. This is a place the locals go and get real mexican food. The food is good and you get your food fast.

Old school restaurant since 1974. The last day of business will be 30DEC2015 when this restaurant will close forever, the SoPas location will still be in operation. We ordered the 3 item combo which came with rice and beans, we shared this plate since we were not starving. The food was very good and flavorful but it needed more hot... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. We have gone here for more than 20 years and it is still one of our favorite restaurants. You can get a $25 certificate for this restaurant on Reataurant.com. You won't be disappointed!

Right on Colorado Blvd in downtown Pasadena. The margaritas are tasty, the guacamole made fresh. Try the Mole, it's great!

We went here for dinner before attending a performance at the Pasadena Playhouse. (It's right around the corner!) I was a bit concerned about the service because it was mentioned in other reviews but our server took good care of us. The food was good but nothing outstanding.

I have been going to La Fiesta for over 10 years. Love the lunch specials, Charlie in the bar is great as is Marcos. The entire staff is always very pleasant and willing to make recommendations on specials and standard menu items. Love the enchiladas, tacos, burritos and the cadillac margs - the best house cadillac i have ever had.... More

When my friend and I came into this restaurant, there were two larger parties of about eight. I expected our service would be a little slower because of this but what I didn't expect was to have to beg for service. It took literally ten minutes just to get the server to take our order - a tostada and a... More

I have been going to this restaurant for fifteen years. The employees are all still there. We often run into the owners. The customers are familiar. The margaritas are really tasty. Their cheese enchiladas are a favorite as well as the El Mojo. They will make you a veggie taco if you request it. I get that often. The service... More
