Mexican
Fiesta Mexico is a beautiful Mexican restaurant that is great for everything from dates to celebrations. The interior has stunning archways and fantastic décor. There is a full bar so that patrons can sip on fruity margaritas to go with their meals. Fiesta Mexico is open every day of the week for lunch and dinner. The Fiesta Mexico menu is quite extensive and has great options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The queso fundido and cheese quesadilla are mouthwatering and addicting. Nacho lovers can order options like bean nachos and beef nachos, or chorizo nachos and chicken nachos. Other favorites are the carne asada with tender steak and guacamole salad. Dinner combinations are very popular as well so that diners can try a variety of items like enchiladas and tacos when ordering just one meal.

    Second visit. We don’t get this type of Mexican food where we live so our standards may be skewed. Lots of food for the price. Very busy. Glad we had a reservation

    Nachos were cold and stale. My chicken tacos were cold. I asked for salsa and sour cream for my tacos and never got it.

    I enjoy their frozen strawberry margaritas. Wish they weren't $7.00 though. My husband always likes the burrito giganta. I liked the combo dinner. I ordered two ground beef enchiladas with rice and beans. Next time we are going to try their fresh guacamole they make fresh at your table.

    Fiesta Mexico was not accepting reservations on May 5 even though I had a confirmation from OpenTable that they would not honor. I showed up and was told it was a two hour wait. I did not get a cancellation notice from OpenTable as the manager said I should have. I also did not receive any compensation for the inconvenience of showing up for a reservation that apparently didn’t exist. Fiesta Mexico said this was open tables problem not theirs. I will probably be very hesitant to ever used open table again or eat at fiesta Mexico Mexico since there was no compensation whatsoever for my inconvenience. I was ushered to the patio where you could stand around a portable bar and pay for drinks while I had an hour wait.

    This was my second visit to this place. Like the first time, I enjoyed a fantastic margarita to start. The fajitas were spectacular, and I enjoyed every bite. Atmosphere is a little noisy with a fair number of children around, but the food and the rest of the ambiance more than make up for that. I will be back next time I am in the area!

    Usually would recommend. This experience with guests from out of town not so great and a little embarrassing. Not sure if we would come back. It was a very busy night but we had to continually remind our server that we needed plates and silverware for food that had already come out to us. The hostess had some controversy over the switching chairs at the table when we were initially seated and we could not understand why so my 92 year old father with COPD had to wait quite a while to sit down. I know restaurants are understaffed and everyone's doing their best but these were just some basic issues. And the food quality has diminished as well. Overall disappointed.

    We made reservation for 4:15, we waited about 20 minutes for our table which was ok since we requested a special table. The service was extremely slow. Waitress rarely checked on us unless we got her attention when she was walking by us. We put our grandchildrens order in with our appetizer order. The waitress never came back to take our order until our grandchildren were done eating their meals. Soup was cold. We waited 30 minutes until someone came to make our fresh table side quacamole. We kept looking for server or anyone. Staff seen us but no one came to check what we needed.

    I will never dine at Fiesta Mexico again. It was the worst service I have ever experienced. I notified two managers (at the same time) one apologized while the other one went to “take care of it” but when she came to the table she gave us attitude and offered no apology. We were at our table for an hour with no utensils, plates or napkins and with no beverage refills for those who were lucky enough to even get a beverage (the server never brought enough cups). We had to use our chips from one appetizer to eat another, though we were told we would get chips that every table gets and repeatedly asked for them once we didn’t get them. We were unable to finish our one appetizer due to have nothing to eat it with, so most of it went cold while we waited. After notifying the managers, the one who came to the table still didn’t bring enough utensils, gave us attitude, and never offered an apology. We ended up leaving before our meals came because the customer service was so terrible. I understand with Covid there are shortages and we were patient and understanding. We only became upset when we saw every other table getting the basic items we were supposed to have gotten (we didn’t even have napkins to use with our appetizer and had to share water cups that never were refilled). I explained the situation to the managers calmly and wasn’t rude, though now I wonder if I would have made a scene if they would have tried harder to make things better. I truly love the food there, but half the time the service is terrible and this time it was the worst I have ever experienced in any restaurant. It’s not worth it. My reservation was to celebrate my in-laws birthday and the night was completely ruined by the staff. It was a horrible experience.

    We love coming to Fiesta Mexico even though we keep getting disappointed from time to time. Last night I got the wrong order again. I ordered Beef stake a la tampiqueña but got El ranchero. I ended up watching everyone eat while I sat there waiting for my food 20 more minutes for my food to come out.

    We had a good dinner that was pretty typical for this type restaurant. Our server wasn't very knowledgeable about the different types of margretias and some of the items in the menu. The crab quesadtias didn't have much crab in them. the guacamole was really good.

    We've had good dining experience here before, though service that time was quite slow, which we put down to being very busy on that occasion. This time was early evening (5:30 pm). The restaurant was somewhat busy, but far from capacity or even average level of patron activity. We (three) were seated quite promptly. It took some time to get drinks ordered. The waiter was repeatedly apologetic for the length of time it took for our entrees - they eventually arrived well over an hour after ordering. Meantime, refilling nacho chips/salsa and drinks was sluggish. Once the dishes arrived the food tasted very good. Not sure what the problem was. Staff emergency in the kitchen? Lack of efficiency from having too wide-ranging a menu? We'll return, but will be wary of a slow dining experience.

    Waitress kept forgetting to bring ordered items and asked items. Ordered beers that never came. Never received side dishes with food. Went through whole meal with one water waitress either wouldnt come back or would forget the refills. Asked for them to bring the ice cream birthday special out as it was my friends birthday, they never did. Would never return.
