I don't know why Hispanics lose their skill when they move North of the Red River, but the owner and chef at this restaurant have exceeded their ability to run a busy restaurant.
Mexican restaurants in St. Louis that serve tasty properly cooked food, are way too rare, Fiesta is no exception. The place is at best mediocre.
I was worried as we entered, the front of the house was totally confused and acted like they did not have a clue whether tables were available or not. Not a good start.
We were finally seated, and were promptly served salsa, chips water and menu's good recovery. Although busy our waiter was very prompt, professional and cordial.
I ordered a chicken dish and my spouse her standard enchiladas verde.
The salsa and chips were different. The salsa was not hot, but had a complex flavor. I could taste the cilantro, the garlic, onion and a touch of pepper. It was surprisingly good since I like my salsa spicy.
Food was delivered promptly and hot.
My wife enjoyed the enchiladas.
I was a bit disappointed. The pico turned out to be chopped iceberg lettuce, some plain tomatoes and a couple of slices of avocado. Definitely not pico de gaillo. The chicken breast was overcooked and dry as dust. The sauce was good but there was way too little of it.
St. Louis Mexican Restaurant score C or C-. If we still lived in Texas they would already be out of business.
The most annoying fact about the restaurant is that it is uncomfortably loud. Don't try and hold a conversation, it won't work.
Not a place I plan to visit again this year or next.
