“Mexican food at its best”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

My date and I have eaten at La Siesta 3 times in the last 3 weeks. Each time it has been excellent. Best tamales in Peoria. Chili Rellenos were excellent. Tonight we got the Nachos- half chicken, half ground beef. Large plate for an appetizer. The chicken was very tender, and the cheese was very flavorful. Service is good, chips and salsa are good. Inside decor is very attractive, but each time we were able to sit on the outdoor patio.
I highly recommend this place if you like Mexican food!

“New Mexican Eatery takes over Donnelly's former location”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

My husband and I went last Sat night to La Siesta, a new Mexican dining spot where Donnelly's used to be on Renwood.The first thing I noticed was how hard they had worked to redecorate. It was not the usual theme found in other similar places but was darker, quieter and seemed a bit more of an upscale look which I liked. I recognized one of the owners, Pedro from other area places. We thought the food was very good. We loved the chunky guac and the shrimp fajitas were over flowing with plump, not overcooked, larger shrimp. My husband had the fajita combo that he also liked. The menu has most of the usual entrees you would find but they also had burgers and a couple of other "American"entrees not usually found on Mexican menus..
Margaritas were a bit weak as I found in most places.
