I had one of the combinations. It was well made and plenty of it. It is not traditional Mexican fare, more Tex Mex. ( way to much cheese for traditional) The food was delicious, however. Service was good and the restaurant clean.

From the outside this looks more like it should be an old hardware store or something but great food is awaiting inside. This is a busy restaurant filled with locals. The service was running but attentive and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. We'll definitely stop back if our adventures ever take us this way again.

Not right on the main drag, but we'll worth it. Immediate seating and served with chips and two types of salsa. Large portions even if you choose a small. Restaurant is clean, staff is cheerful, and food very tasty. $27.00 for both of us including two margaritas. No smoking going on here.

Super busy on a Saturday night and the staff was hustling. Food came out quick, large menu variety, good chicken mole and my husband had an enchilada. Chips, salsa and cabbage slaw before the meal was good. Easy stop on our way through.

We have eaten many times at La Fiesta because the food has always been well-prepared, the service polite, and the atmosphere very friendly. Great food at a great price, with lots of menu items to choose from.

The free chips and salsa also came with some sort of cabbage salad which was really good. The food is pretty inexpensive and portions are a pretty good size. I recommend the chicken chimichanga small combination.

Admittedly, the front of the restaurant is unimpressive, in fact we were actually slightly disturbed by the 5 or 6 homeless individuals napping in the park across the street from the restaurant. That being said, we had a good meal. Service was quick and friendly. Chicken Mole was outstanding, while my husband declared his combo plate as good. Vacant seats... More

The food was good and well priced and service was prompt. It seems like a local place where many people knew each other. Lots of parking.

May not look like much from the outside but it is DELICIOUS! Cheap Mexican food authentically made. Make sure to try the cabbage salsa before ordering. Great margaritas and service is exceptional!

This place is fantastic. Super fast service, outstanding Margaritas, good food. Would definitely eat there again when passing through Elko. Skip the chains and diners. Give this a try!
