We have been to a lot of Mexican restaurants in our time - ranging from the exceptional to the horrible. Recently moving to the area, we decided to try out Festejos. We were seated quickly on a Friday evening. There were only a few tables occupied, which always worries me a bit (I kind of think the best places are... More

The nachos light was very good and a huge serving. The meal starks with the usual chips and salsa. The server was busy and therefore the service was slow. The food was good and the price is good.

This was the first mexican restaurant I went to when I moved to Clayton 4 years ago and I have been going at least twice a month since. The food is fresh and tasty. The servers are friendly and attentive. This is a restaurant that is good for kids, couples and solo. Try the guacamole prepared table side with chips.... More

Been there twice and it was delicious both times! I've tried the ACC (rice with shrimp and cheese sauce) and the lunch carne asada. My husband has had the Crazy Taco twice. Everything was very tasty. Efficient and friendly service. Reasonable prices and lunch specials. We plan on being regular customers! :)

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. The table side guacamole is very good. Everything I have ever had to eat has been great!

Festejos makes their own salsa fresh every day and you can definitely tell when you taste it! I highly recommend the Guacamole made right at your table......delicious!

My daughter and son inlaw roomy there for lunch last summer, I've not eaten much Mexican food. I was pleasantly surprised at the flavors, and I enjoyed my meal. I didn't pay the tab, but they had been there before, so I'm sure the prices were fair. The service was very good as well. If you're looking for someplace different,... More

So I live locally and have frequented several other Mexican establishments in the are--and my wife and I love Mexican. I read the reviews of Festejos, and always notice a crowded parking lot, so I said "why not give it a try." It was well worth it. One thing I noticed right away was the shredded beef in the tacos,...
