“Very slow service”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Went there as a group of 6. Took about 5 minutes to get a table when the restaurant was mostly empty. Food was decent but the service was incredibly slow. We were in there for a full 90 minutes even though we didn't drink much. We couldn't understand what was taking so long. Waiter seemed very busy; perhaps short staffed? Food was not worth going back for.

“Nice food and pleasant service”
Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Pretty good food though very slow service. The waiter was very pleasant and fairly attentive. Margaritas were good - with a new touch for me - a Jalapeño infused marg. Pretty tasty and unique. Seemed to be some regulars in the restaurant so that gave us some confidence in the food quality.

“Chipotle Chicken Burrito!!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Went here for dinner while on a ski vacation. Husband and I both had the chipotle chicken burrito, which was wonderful. Yummy sauce and stuffed with chicken and veggies. We didn't try any of the "fancy" margaritas, but ordered a pitcher of house margaritas instead, which was all we needed. This restaurant is near Mt. Werner and can be accessed via shuttle or taxi, if you don't have a rental car. Small bar area, but plenty of seating near the bar and throughout the restaurant. Outdoor seating in the summer time. There aren't too many Mexican restaurants in town --- unless they're keeping them a secret from us -- so give La Fiesta a chance!

“Great Service”

Great service all the way around. My wife and I both order the Steak Tacos. They where awesome. Kids had appetizers and really enjoyed it. Would come here again.

“Quality Mexican food.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We live in the area and this has become our favorite Mexican restaurant. The reason the location and appearance don't get high marks is because they moved into a space that had already been used by another restaurant. Rather than spend money to remodel, they kept start-up costs down by using what was already available. The best part of this restaurant is the food which is fresh and flavorful with nice presentation. Some of our favorite dishes are chipotle chicken enchiladas, mahi-shrimp enchiladas and tampiquena steak. The margaritas are also good and we like the Cadillac and Cazadores. Staff is consistent and friendly although service can suffer if they're busy since they seem to have to do everything. This place is a hidden secret and you can usually get a table which will likely change as more people discover it. Give it a try!
