“Great Food, Silly Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

We had the ceviche and the empanadas. Both great!
Server did good, until she brought the check without us requesting it.
We were still enjoying our drinks and desert. We felt rushed to eat and leave. Keep in mind there were no other clients and it was noon. What is the rush?
Please don't do that. It brings the whole experience down to another average restaurant.

“Loved the chicken mole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is not your typical traditional Mexican place. The food is a little more interesting especially for Fairfield. The mole on the chicken enchilada was really flavorful. I haven't found a better mole anywhere else yet.

“Nice change in Fairfield!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

We've been living in the area for several years now, and have yet to find that restaurant that combines both good food, together with a slightly more elegant/sophisticated atmosphere. Favela Fusion fills that void.

The food was quite good! It is a twist on Mexican food (not sure where the reference to Brazilian slums comes from in the name of the restaurant). Portions are a good size. We will definitely be returning, and with friends!

“enjoyed this place so I much I returned next evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Visiting the Fairfield area for the first time, I struggled to find good dining choices. I asked my GPS for restaurants, scolled through the choices, and pulled this one from the air, based on the name and a mental dice roll. I was very happy with Favela's, and came back the next evening for more. Moderately noisy but happy atmosphere, lively bar scene, strong service, interesting food.

“A family favorite and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

A family favorite, I have enjoyed this place every time I have visited with consistently high quality service and great food. Love the ambience and atmosphere. It is big enough to accomodate families comfortably and sports bar fans alike but not too big to feel impersonal. Our service was exceptional with our waitress cheerful and attentive.
- We were served a trio of salsa's to go along with our chips while waiting for the meal - all good.
- House margarita was made well without being stingy with the good stuff
- Mixed steak and chicken fajitas were really good
