This is a good place for Mexican food. The owners and staff are friendly and the service is good. I love true Mexican food and this comes close.

I've been here many times. Their specials are always good and you get more than enough for 2 people (of average appetite) to share. Of course, if you're really hungry, this place can take care of that. Food is always fresh, hot and filling. Pleasant atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but it doesn't claim to be, either. Drink specials are a great... More

I admit I don't know the finer points of Mexican cuisine, but La Siesta is just such a cut above the rest in this area. More flavorful rice, more unique dishes, better prepared, better chips, better cooked meat just good. Enchiladas in particular are the standard for this part of Illinois and have been for 15 years.

Standard menu, weak margaritas, nothing special about the decor, service, or food. Not outstanding or bad. There are better choices in the area in the same price range.

There is nothing outstanding about this restaurant but it's okay. The food was typical Mexican fare but I doubt if any ethnic Mexicans dine there, Everything was reasonably priced and the quantity of food and quality of service was good. But the margaritas were weak, almost without Tequila. The dining room seems noisy. I.doubt if I'll return.

I was taken here by a local who views La Siesta as the best Mexican in the area. I thought it was mostly average. I had the chicken mole. The sauce was rich with just a bit of spice but the chicken was completely doused in it. Rice and beans were good. There is plenty of parking and service was... More

This local spot doesn't prepare your order fresh. You cannot request certain ingredients to be left out because everything is made in advance. Including their margaritas. Outdated restaurant. Not very clean. The patio area is nice but usually full.

We used to frequent this restaurant often (until a competitor opened a couple miles across town - THAT one became our "go to"). We've had several dishes on the menu in the past, last night the Enchiladas Suiza and the Milanesa de Pollo were our choices. The enchiladas arrived, looking as though they'd spent quite a bit of time under... More

I was looking forward to something ethnic with a bit of spice. I ordered the la siesta burrito. The meat had no flavor the shell was gummy and the Pico de Gallo was chopped tomatoes and onion with no heat and was lack luster. First and last time I will patronize.
