La Fiesta is one of my favorite places in Gainesville. The best Mexican food and at a good price. This place is family owned and operated. If you want great food, good portions, and a resonable price for the best Mexican Food in town, La Fiesta is for you.

A group of 6 of us went to La Fiesta Mexican Restaurant for dinner. We arrived shortly after 8pm. An hour later, we were still waiting. We were okay with this, because wait times are always long in Gainesville on a Friday.

We continued to chat when another party of 7 joined us outside and waited for a table. Imagine our shock when they were seated in 20 minutes. We were still waiting. A friend asked the hostess/owner why the party of 7, which had been waiting for significantly less time, was seated first. She told him that since we had a party of 6 we had to wait for another seat in the corner, because a party of 7 could sit at a table. HUH? We asked why our party couldn't sit at the table instead, since we had been waiting for more than hour and were there first. She said she was busy and walked away.

We left. While waiting in line at another restaurant, I phoned back to ask what had happened and why. The owner said, "I am aware of what happened. That is what happened. I am busy. I can't talk to you now." And hung up. My friend received a similar response when he called later.

Draw your own conclusions about the owners commitment to customer service. If they care this little about the front of the restaurant, what is going on in the back?
