This is a small family-owned Mexican restaurant. We had good service, found the prices to be reasonable at dinner, and the food was great. The salsa was especially good with the complimentary chips they bring out while you wait. The food was all hot and fresh and served with a smile. We had their fajitas and meal with shrimp. They...

We found this on trip advisor while searching for somewhere to eat on our way home from Branson. Being 12:30 on a Sunday we were trying to stay away from church crowd. Great find! Food was very fresh and staff was very friendly. Everything had a good flavor.

We came in for drinks, chips, and queso only. The queso had a great flavor but is runny like milk. The staff was great. Food is usually very good, too.

After reading several reviews that raved about Festival Mexican Restaurant, I decided to give it a try. I order a combination plate and a child's plate "to go." I enjoyed the chips and salsa that was offered for me to eat while waiting for the order and I truly enjoyed the treat. As for the combination plate, I was a... More

Not even locals have ever eaten here, kind of on the outskirts of town in a small building that doesnt look too inviting, but like a lot of Mexican places, don't let the outside fool you. Best authentic restaurant in town for sure, very affordable and good portions, food isn't just shoveled out quick like other places.

After seeing reviews I was excited to eat here but found out nothing to spectacular. Prices and food portions are good. Not a bad place to eat just had higher expectations. I would eat here again so don't get me wrong.
