Typical anglicized Mexican peasant food. Tasty but not authentic. I notice most reviewers of this restaurant are not from the Southwest so they give this place 5 star ratings that are undeserved. The service is good and the drinks are OK but very expensive. Dr13Bor

We always look forward to eating at LaFiesta when we are in Elko. This time I had the seafood enchilada. It was stuffed with huge chunks of crab and shrimp. Delicious! My husband always orders Carne Asada and is never disappointed. The servers are always attentive and friendly. It has a very casual atmosphere.

We eat her several times a month. The food is great, portions are huge and waitstaff is great too. I read a couple of reviews about the female waitress and I was surprised. She is quiet but she is kind and efficient. I haven't found a waiter or waitress there that isn't great. Treat yourself....have lunch or dinner here.

Some of the reviews had me a little worried as there were a few who thought it was more TexMex than authentic, but I figured "what the heck". I was not disappointed. The first tipoff that this might be good was the cabbage salsa(along with a tomato one) served with the chips. When I checked out the menu, I saw... More

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.

Thank Cobyn
