Review: I will begin this review by stating that I have a thing for Mexican food. I like it, and I’m not all that discriminating. There’s good Mexican food and better Mexican food. In fact, I even like Taco Bell. There, I said it.
So today I ran over to La Fiesta Burrito for lunch. It’s a small restaurant in a strip mall on 350. It’s small, with some tables and chairs. Surely nothing fancy, but very colorful and clean. Usually these types of restaurants have floors that make me want to put on an extra pair of socks, but this floor was so clean that some people might be inclined to eat off of it. Me, not so much, but I’m not one to judge.
When I go to a strip-mall Mexican restaurant, there are three things that I expect. 1) a Mexican soap opera to be on the TV, 2) Jarritos in the cooler, and fresh tortilla chips. I was not disappointed, the chips and salsa were very fresh and quite tasty. Unfortunately, you have to pay to get additional chips and salsa. I get the point there, they do make them fresh which takes more time and costs more than getting the giganto sized bag of factory chips, so I’m not complaining too much. I just like chips and salsa a lot.
I ordered the Monday special, which was a tostada and a taco with rice and beans. My opinion of the food was okay. There was nothing outstanding about it, not like the chips. The food was just okay. I’ve been there before and had steak or chicken tacos, and those were very good, but the ground beef entrées were nothing special.
The service was very nice and friendly and I have absolutely no complaints. The bathroom was very clean and from my view of the kitchen, it even appeared to be very orderly and clean. This is clearly an establishment that takes hygiene to heart.
