“Good food, great decor.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

We arrived fairly late one evening, after a full day of driving, staying at the Days Inn next door and were pleased to see a restaurant a few steps away.
The Fiesta was beautifully decorated, the service was great, the salsa was good, chips thin and crispy and the margarita hit the spot; cold, crisp, refreshing, not the overly sweet, bright green goo so often served. We weren't starved and close to bedtime so each had an ala carte item. Mine was a chicken tostada that was very good.
There might be better places in town, but not being familiar with Cortez dining and too tired to scout, it worked great for a stopover on our way to Durango the next morning.

“Yummy tacos and salsa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

The ground beef tacos and salsa were very delicious. The salsa had a secret ingredient that I could not identify. The gauc was good.

I ordered a margarita and couldn't believe the large serving size. I drank every drop and did not get a hangover!

“OK food, overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

I'm going to keep this short.

The mexican food here was good. Not earthshaking, not "the best ever", just good. Service was good. Food came out in a reasonable amount of time.

BUT, the price was too much for what it was. Yes, we felt it was overpriced at $30 for two meals. I'd look elsewhere in town and see if you can save some money.

It IS handy to the Days Inn, so if you're tired, don't want to go far, and don't care, then blow your money here.

“mexican restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Next to the days inn, the food was above average, the menu was standard fare. Service could have been better, we had to ask for more water. My daughter had a chicken with mushrooms in a cream sauce, that was very good.
It reminded me of 3 margaritas, but not quite as good.

“Best in the franchise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Attentive servers and quick service make this the best of the franchise locations in SE Utah and SW Colorado. Have been here several times and appreciate the consistent quality.
