Came to La Fiesta Brava in Hattiesburg with a group of 15. Was seated in an out of the way room that did not appear as maintained as the primary dining area despite near empty restaurant. Waiter took all the orders and after all orders...came to table the waitress had not delivered three orders. She came to me and told me they did not have the food to prepare my order of Tacos De Piccadilly. Asked if I wanted to order something else. After a 30 minute wait and some of the group was nearly done, no I don,t want to make another order. My daughter ordered Chicken Anchilado and she said she could not eat it because it taste terrible so I tried it and I would not feed it to my dogs. Another dish taste bad also. Most of the adults said their dish was ok but the teenagers did not eat theirs. I tipped the waitress after everybody was done. Put tip on the bill and left hungry with both glass’s of tea on our table empty.More

Great food and good margaritas. However, the staff have been hit and miss. They aren't very attentive to guest needs and the tea was little sour. Fortuantely though, once something was mentioned it was taken care of immediately.

This is the last place for Mexican food to stop in Hattiesburg. The food is bland and tastelss. The bar is cool though and it seems to be a hot spot for drinks.

Live here about 1.5 years now and have not found that quintessential Mexican restaurant that I'm use to in Texas. This is the best to date as we work our way through the different local restaurants. Decent food and margaritas. Great service

We tried Fiesta Brava for dinner after not having gone there in a while. We felt it had not been up to par in the past, but our meal this time was very good. The beef and chicken fajitas were served hot and sizzly as...we had hoped. The enchiladas were also good, but not great. Rather than coming out all together, the meal came out in pieces with the fajita meat first, the rice and beans second and finally the tortillas. The meal was served quickly and everything was good, but not great. However, the frozen margaritas here are always a hit and make up for any shortcomings.More

We stopped by tonight to eat Mexican. Our first choice was already closed. We've eaten at La Viesta in Gautier before. Our server, Kristi, greeted us and sat us. The first booth that she was going to seat us at was dirty. She apologized and...sat us at another booth. Our drinks and food was quickly delivered. I think she was the only employee actually working. The manager never looked up from his computer to even acknowledge us. I was hesitant to eat, because the window beside us was filthy. If they allow this area to be visually dirty, how is the kitchen? The food looked sloppy but was tasty. When we began to check out, we stood in the lobby for a bit while the manager again was on the computer ignoring us. He never even looked up or "someone will be with you shortly." Kristi popped up and checked us out even having her hands full with tables to wait on. Kristi seated us, waited in our table, and checked us out. Great job to her! Shame on La Viesta! They would be a complete lost cause without her.More

They did not have adequate staff for our group of 20 at about 4 pm. They mixed up the orders and forgot some of the orders. Not too great.

La Fiesta has been a staple of Hattiesburg for quite some time. My co-workers and I tend to hit this place up for lunch at least 2-3 times a month. It is also a great place for dinner with the family or drinks with friends.

Stopped by for lunch during a Southern Miss football game. The restaurant was full but not overly crowded. I ordered chicken enchiladas off of the lunch menu expecting a small meal because of the price. I was wrong! The serving was huge and delicious. Everything...was fresh, hot and delicious. Our server was great. If I lived closer I would be here every week!More
