Mannie was a great waiterMannie was a great waiter and a lot of fun. The chili releno on the appetizer list was a meal in itself and the best I've ever had.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGourmet MexicanWe were a little concerned that we were the only ones in the restaurant when we ate on a week night. However the food was very good and the service was great although we didn't have much competition. I got a crab and shrimp burrito and my wife had chicken fajitas. Both were very good. Nothing was exceptionally spicy except the grilled jalapeno pepper on the plate!
A large group came in just before we left so I'm confident we hit a rare slow night.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Authentic Mexican FoodLa Fiesta has all the qualities needed for a successful restaurant! The best guacomole! Waiter suggested an outstanding smooth marguerita made with agave nectar and enchiladas were excellent. Accompanied with roasted corn and rice made for a delicious dinner! I would highly recommend La Fiesta to anyone visiting the San Diego area. We were visiting on vacation with 20 in our group and the staff was very accomodating!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe carnitas were wonderful,The carnitas were wonderful, served with a delicious tomatillo salsa.

Great server, outstanding food, just a exceptional evening. If you're a fan of pork, I highly recommend the Chamorro de Puerco. The roasted pork shank was all that and a bag of doughnuts! Not a big fan of the Gaslamp District (too noisy and commercial), but I would go back anytime to eat here.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent! We hadFood was excellent!
