“Get Your Mexican Fix Here!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

I eat mexican food once a week and this place is close to home. While not the cheapest, the chips, salsa, are great, cold beer and the food has always been good. I like the steak, pork dinners, my daughter loves the tacos and I have yet to finish the whole plate. Plenty of food to eat, for the money spent and the pork tonight was excellent. Give it a shot, you won't walk away hungry!

“Great food and great support staff made up for weak server”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

We really liked this place in spite of our waitress. Here is what i'd say:

Things we liked:

1) Great menu - if you like traditional Mexican fare, it's all here.
2) Delicious food - we liked what we ordered. Chips and salsa were jut right for starters. Meal came fast.
3) Support staff kept things going - checked in on us. Service from these guys were great, thank goodness for them.

Things we didn't like - ONLY ONE ISSUE:

1) Our waitress was very weak. Waitress made an error on our order. Never apologized or acknowledged it. Another person took care of her error. She never refilled any drinks.

IOther than this, everything was quite pleasant. Try it. You'll like it.

“Great food, Great Service”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

We had a large group of people. They accomodated us although we didnt have a reservation, even though they were busy. Food was great, service was quick. They didnt mess up any bills even though we all got seperate cheques. Very good experience.

“Disgusting”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

Went here..and thought about walking across the street to Taco Bell. This place is ridiculous. The service is weak, the food is absolutely weak, and the pricing is what should I say..WEAK. If your going to hit up a Mexican chain then do yourself a favor and go to El Rancho Grande..

“Great, Traditional, Real Mexican Food”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

Fiesta Brava on Fields Ertel road, close to the Kings Auto Mall in Cincinnati, is a classic, I eat here almost every week at least once. The tortilla chips are served with a great dip, and the food is delicious. I love the El Jalisco, a soft taco covered in chicken, with chunks of chorizo on top of it, nice fresh lettuce, rice, and sour cream. I prefer it without the pineapple, and the restaurant is happy to accomodate. This place is very popular among the locals and the latin crowd. Perfect for lunch. Great staff, very friendly.
