“Good Local Place”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Close to where we were staying, this restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel and turned out to be the highlight of our evening. We were warmly welcomed and when we mentioned that we were in Tallahassee for the first time, we got lots of helpful attention in choosing from a variety of good foods. The owner even came over with a couple of things for us to try. The guacamole is made fresh regularly during the day and the mole sauce is all home made. We were very happy with our selections and had a leisurely evening meal after a long day of driving. I would definitely go back to this restaurant any time that I am in Tallahassee.

“Fast, fun & hot food”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

La Fiesta is the overall 'typical' Mexican fare located on a major thoroughfare. What caught our attention most, besides the quality of e food selections, was the Intricately designed and painted wall murals. They were vibrant, detailed and shadowed ' hidden doorways' within the wall ..my kids just ADORED them.
The service was standard nut the food itself was created from high quality, fresh ingredients & prepared post ordering. The atmosphere was festive, but you could hear conversation without fighting to be heard.
The food arrived quickly and out of 8 ordering, no one complained about their menu selections. Pricing was very reasonable.

“Enjoyable meal”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

My wife had her usual nachos and I had a couple of tacos. The wait for the food was short and the food delicious. Some of the best salsa that I've had recently.

“Wish they were open later”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

I love the food here and eat here frequently but they close at 10PM. If they were open longer, more people would come in, including me. Please stay open longer!
