Oaxacan food has flavors unique to that part of Mexico. Fiesta Oaxaca has all the great taste of it’s namesake area. Very small, unassuming restaurant just off the downtown, and well worth the few block walk.

A Santa Fe restaurant with a southern Mexican flair. Try entrees with sauces of tamarind, yucca, peanut, and sesame blends. Also, soups, salads, burritos, tamales, etc. Decor is bright. Find this restaurant just west of the plaza and one street north. It's worth trying. Lunch...More
