Enduring eatery preparing hearty platters of traditional Mexican dishes in a spacious, low-key spot.- Google

My husband and I went to La Fiesta early on a Friday afternoon to try their Happy Hour and food. We were greeted and sat at a booth. The waitress came by, dropped off chips and salsa, and asked us what we wanted to drink. I asked "How much are the Happy Hour margaritas?" to which she replied "Two for one". We ordered two margaritas, and each had one chicharrone and bean burrito, smothered with lettuce and tomatoes. The margaritas were very small and weak, arriving in a small wine glass. The food came quickly and was good. There was only a small amount of lettuce and tomatoes on the burrito even though the extra charge for this was $1.99 each. When the bill came, we noticed that we had been charged $2.99 for chips and salsa. When we asked our waiter, he said "We charge for our chips". We were then told that no credit cards were accepted, only cash. We also noticed that we had been overcharged $1.00 for each burrito. When we told the cashier she said "We appreciate our customers who have the strength of character to bring mistakes to our attention" and took off the $2 overcharge. So what happens to the customers who do not scrutinize their bill or do not have the strength of character to ask for it to be corrected? Do they just get ripped off? How unfortunate. We will not return

Overall, I had a terrible experience. The restaurant is very dirty. The bathroom was flooded with water. The food was largely disgusting. The service was terrible. I ended up leaving halfway through the meal and did not leave a tip. I know servers out there are wincing. But yes, it was that bad. I love Mexican food, have eaten it all over the country, and cook Mexican dishes at home. La Fiesta is near the bottom of my list. To be fair, the green sauce was interesting. The chile relleno was tasty and the beans were ok. The margarita was passable, but nothing to rave about. However, the green sauce will be too hot for most people (I love heat BTW). The salsa was hot, but had a weird taste, like they used Italian seasoning. The dish was overcooked and swimming in what appeared to be cheese plus green sauce. The tortillas were probably microwaved, tough, and inedible. I ate several bites, but couldn't eat anymore. My girlfriend's dish tasted like the meat had freezer burn. She refused to eat more than a few bites. The decor is outdated and dirty. Don't look at the ceiling. In fact, don't look at anything too hard. You won't want to eat. Bring plastic boots if you want to use the water soaked bathroom. Our waitress was horrible. Other staff ended up helping us with the meal. I think the owner's took my (cash) payment. They did ask me how the food was. I said it was "ok." They didn't follow up and I left as quickly as I could. These people are walking through the motions. They have no passion for good food. The decor is embarrassing. Don't waste your time.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST GREEN CHILE AND CHILE RELLENOS IN DENVER!! The restaurant is long overdue for a makeover but the food is excellent. There a just a few food items I would avoid... 1 of them being the Fajitas. If I didnt know any better I would swear they are made from dog meat. Pretty bad. The ground beef leaves a bit to be desired. Only other complaint I would have is if you want any small sides like extra cheese or extra sourcream... things like that YOU WILL PAY A HEFTY PRICE FOR THEM! Just a little over priced I would say! All around I love eating there!

Funky atmosphere, attentive service, and delicious food—the salsa and green chili are fantastic! One of the best little taquerias in Denver!

Selected La Fiesta as was in area for lunch and really like chile rellenos. La Fiesta had a couple of okay reviews and a review that said chile rellenos were bad. I should have gone with the review that said the chile rellenos were bad and stayed away. The chile rellenos should be called processed cheese block (think of Velveta) wrapped in a small tortilla, fried and covered with green chili for $9. You would have better luck finding Waldo at La Fiesta versus a chile pepper in the relleno. Overall just bad. Refried Beans were okay, mexican rice was oily. Final kicker was I accepted the offer for chips/salsa. Though maybe complimentary for the sparse lunch crowd. No the chips/sals was another $4. Will not go back.

La Fiesta is truly an awesome place for their food! I have to buy their green chile and freeze it at home so I can ship it to my son back east! I have been eating there for over 30 years and can tell you that they use real cheese in their rellenos and not the generic imitations that many other restaurants use... I know that they only take cash - NO CHECKS OR CREDIT CARDS - but they had been burned too many times and the percentage that a merchant has to pay for credit card use was killing them...I have introduced this establishment to many of my friends and they all enjoy it as well! Robert does a great job as restaurant manager, and if there's a problem with your experience talk to him about it - don't POST lies about his ingredients! They were always the winners for Best Green Chile and Chile Rellenos - year after year! The winners that Westword has chosen the past few years, I feel are really overrated and still cannot and should not be in the same level as La Fiesta! There are many repeat customers that work at the Federal Building downtown and in the immediate area that frequent this restaurant weekly and some almost daily....KUDOS for real mexican food!
