I live in the community and I still can't believe this place is still open. The times I have eaten here, the place is nearly deserted and I can see why. The food tastes institutional: hospital food, or worse, public school food. Most stuff tastes like it came out of a can. It's a great place to take someone that... More

Always very accommodating, good, decent food for a fair price. The staff is super friendly and remembers what you ordered last time.

Absolutely the best service. Incredibly attentive. We were a large group and they did a remarkable job. Jaime was outstanding. Food was very good. Everyone enjoyed the meal. Will definitely be back. Mole is good and so are the enchiladas rancheras. Nothing fancy. Just good old Mexican food at great prices

I'd heard of the food here but this was my first time, and I was not disappointed! The fresh salsa and chips were great, as was the enchilada plate I ordered. Next time we're ordering the soft taco special, which includes a round platter of tortillas, three meats and all the fixings to make your own tacos at the table!

La Fiesta Grande is an unpretentious family friendly Mexican Restaurant. It's a local favorite. Nothing to write home about, but the food is good and prices are fair. The service is very good as well.

It has the standard Mexican dishes you would expect, but the service is very good and the food is consistently good quality. Better than the chain restaurants at a comparable price. The staff is very friendly and they make you feel at home.

Mexican food for white people from the 1950s. Food is generic and bland. One positive: good spot if you have babies or little ones in tow.

I have to give it one better because the service is pretty good, but those looking for real Mexican need to head into an area that isn't that nice to walk around after eating. Honestly, the food is edible but it isn't the most authentic. We eat here often since we get the restaurant.com GCs all the time. We get... More

My boyfriend and I go here all the time. Really good food and fast,friendly service. I wish they would cook their refried beans with vegetable oil instead of lard since we are vegetarians but I'm not going to reduce their star rating for keeping their food authentic.

La Fiesta Grande serves up tasty carnitas and tostada salads. Their margaritas are really good and excellent service. Not much ambiance, but the friendly service and tasty drinks will more than make up for it.
