The service was good. Chips and salsa was plentiful and tasty. The food was plentiful however seemed a bit bland to me. There were not that many people there although it was a weekday and lunch time. Perhaps on the weekend it is busier. Was a little concerned as the server seemed to be coughing and perhaps should not have... More

Our whole family likes to go here. Great food and prices. Go hungry, big portions. Service is great and food comes out hot!!! Get a frozen drink. Delicious. Big menu and usually busy. All cooked to order. Traditional mexican. Chips and salsa while you wait. Nice treat.

We have been going weekly for 6 years. Unfortunately, that will not be the case any more. Apparently there is new mgmt. and a new name. There are no more margarita specials and the food has all gone up at least $2 per item. So, I guess someone else took over and raised all the prices. I hope they realize... More

We were there with another couple on Valentine's Day at 7pm. The restaurant wasn't even half full. We got our food quick and it was good but the rest of the experience was awful. When our male server brought us our food I ordered another drink. I never got it. I asked for water and never got it. Thankfully my... More

On our way back from Rochester, I found this restaurant for a Sunday lunch. The service was great from the moment we walked in, including drink and warm tortilla chip refills. The Beef Fajita salad was delicious with a side of jalapeños. Definitely give this place a try!!

My husband and I are vacationing and stopped in here today for lunch. The food was amazing! Absolutely delicious and large portions too! The chips and salsa are a nice bonus. The salsa was so fresh and tasty. The service was also top notch. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

Wasn't sure by looking at the outside.......sent a friend in to check out the place and menu. We went in! I had tacos - delicious! Everyone enjoyed their meal and we each had a delicious lime margarita. Mexican is not usually my choice - but I would go back to La Fiesta!

This restaurant is actually on Main Street in Waterloo, just next to Seneca Falls. This little town is worth going to, and the restaurant should not disappoint lovers of Tex Mex food. The portions are very generous. The service is extremely rapid and attentive. One of us had the chile verde--a really flavoursome pork dish with all the trimmings. The... More

5 of us arrived around 5pm and after ordering were served within 10mins. Beforehand chips & salsa were served which was nice. Everyone had a good meal, 3 of us had different meat fajitas, which were good but they also served us an extremely hot salsa later which was really excellent. I'd recommend asking for this early with the chips.... More

The food is very tasty. I've had the fajitas and the tacos. I love the free chips and salsa. My favorite part is how quiet it is in there. A great place for a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
