“Best Mexican Food in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Owned by Mexican couple. He does the cooking with one assistant. Every dish from scratch, with homemade tortillas. Dishes from many parts of Mexico. Quezo Fundido appetizer of melted Chihuahua cheese, chorizo or not, small fresh warm tortillas, with salsa melts in my mouth! Every dish is delicious, beautiful. All served with rice and the best refried beans I've ever tasted. San Luis enchiladas incredible. Could dine there for every meal every day. Flautas, chile relleno, peneque, tapatias, morelianas, tamales, sincronezada, potato tacos--all incredible.

“Family Owned and Operated Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

La Fiesta is the best! Authentic Mexican food excellently preparedly and served by the owners. You will love finding this small gem of a restaurant and telling others about it. BYO beer or wine or enjoy a soda from Mexico with your meal.

“Great food, warm friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

I chose La Fiesta for my birthday dinner. After having read the reviews, I noticed a mix of great and some poor review. I spoke with friends and they told me their experience had been good so we decided to try it for my birthday.

I couldn't have been happier. The owner immediately welcomed me when I walked in the door. She took great care of our group. The food was very authentic and tasty. The only thing low were the prices! Most entrees are under $10. Add a drink, some guacamole and a dessert and you still have a very reasonably priced meal.

If you like real Mexican food, then I would recommend La Fiesta. If you prefer chain restaurant Mexican, then you may not care for the authentic flavors found at this restaurant. There are no over salted chips and runny salsa at this restaurant. I can't imagine the reviewers commented about the poor quality food or bad service were at the same restaurant.

“Basic Mexican”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

I've had better and I've had worse. No chips/salsa served without ordering/paying. Service was slow - only one older woman. Food as expected.

“Authentic and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2013

Family run restaurant. Flavor straight from Mexico. Delicious lunch combos. BYOB can be fun. Can be a touch pricy, especially the "extras" like guacamole and such but the taste and quality are always good. I've eaten here dozens of times and have every intention of coming back.
