La Fiesta is now La Fiesta Grande. The only grand part of this place is how terrible it is. Don't bother. There is only one Mexican restaurant in Springfield worth its salt - Taqueria Moroleon and unfortunately it does not serve drinks. But I digress....More

Have been there 2x now. It is generally an authentic experience. The serving of refried beans they serve with their dishes is huge-too much!

We always love their chips & salsa, and it's worth the $3.50 for a cup of hot white cheese sauce. I recommend the Chimichangas (soft, not fried) with grilled chicken (it has no onions or peppers) with the cheese sauce (it comes with red sauce...More

I'll start with the upside. The food was tasty and in a decent serving size. Downhill from here. Presentation was zero. Service was quirky, over attentive. We felt pestered to make a choice. The server was trying hard. Language was clearly an issue. I know...More
