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...More

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.

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.
