La Fiesta is awesome!! A authentic,
family-run Mexican restaurant, 3 generations can be there on any given night. The ingredients are fresh and high quality (West Side Market for many), the food consistently excellent, and the margaritas.....ask the bartender (Jim) for a gold. You will not be disappointed.
Best Mexican place on the eastside.
Our family have been dining at LaFiesta for 20+ years and have always enjoyed the food. Service is very good and food has always met our expectations. Other than this the newer "Mexican" places pale in comarision to LaFiesta.
I couldn't believe how awful this place was. everything from the service to the food to the management was just ridiculously bad!!! Don't waste your money on this place. Nothing was fresh, things were microwaved and served cold, and it was expensive!!!! On top of that the waitress and manager had a major attitude about it! They were full of excuses and even accused us of making things up when we asked the meals to be warmed up!!!!!
Feels like Mexico!.
Can't say enough about this place! Have travelled to Mexico City several times for business and this place makes me feel like I'm back there - but without any of the drawbacks. The Margaritas are the best I've ever had; and I've had a LOT of them - from here to AZ and in Mexico. The food was excellent and the meals are a good value - you get salad or soup, entree, refried beans and rice. So much food I had to take half of it with me....and it was even good the next day!
Best Margaritas ive ever had...
Food came in very large portions and the drinks packed a punch..they make everything from scratch, everything..and its family owned for something like 60 years..all the other local mexican restaurants are pretty much cafeteria food, this was the best ive had in cleveland
Not what I hoped for....
After reading the reviews here and elsewhere, we hoped for a terrific, authentic Mexican feast. I found the food to be overpriced and not of terrific quality. My soup, at $5 a bowl, contained very little meat and not a lot of flavor. Our meals were not much better in either department. I think there is much better Mexican food to be found in the burbs.
Athentic & Flavorful.
If you like your mexican food authentic, La Fiesta is a must try. Jimmy mixes up the best margarita in town, and the complimentary chips and salsa are addictive. Save room for the food, which can be ordered a la carte or in combination platters. Highly recommended are the Ceviche appetizer, the black bean or aztec soup, the echiladas with your choice of chicken, shredded or ground beef covered in green or red sauce and the sizzling fajitas. A great place to take a date, decorated in true mexican style, with cozy semi private tables and booths.
The pinata party's on, and believe it or not, it's right next door to Richmond Mall.. The Scene During the "I Like Ike" years, Antonia Valle spread the word of Mexican cooking throughout Cleveland, then a strictly meat-and-'taters town. Her business--now a Wilson Mills Road fixture--has been dishing homemade plates of hot and spicy specialties for half a century, and the tile floors and peach-colored walls wear it well. There's a convivial machismo to the proceedings and plenty of food, most of which will treat your tastebuds like a pinata.
The Menu The Valle family versions of pepper-and-prune-stuffed pork loin and chicken breast in mole sauce are classics, as is their incredible guacamole. Try a pitcher of fresh-squeezed lemonade to quench that chipotle fire. If you want more than your tongue buzzing, several Mexican beers are served as cold as a winter storm, and the margaritas might be the strongest in town.
Crowd Control Quick seating for parties of two to 20 is no problem, so drop by for a mini-vacation, no passport required.
best mex in cle's east burbs.
a mexican oasis in cleveland's northeast suburbs- tasty salsa, good margaritas & a festive atmosphere. the service is sometimes a little slow, but it's a homey place where people kick back & relax. the food is delicioso.
