Mexican / Southwestern
Susan and Mariano use old family recipes brought to Colorado by Susan's great-grandparents and Central Mexico, tradition to Mariano to create great Southwestern cuisine. Among the favorites are chicken enchiladas in a white jalapeño sauce and blue-corn enchiladas served Santa Fe style with an egg on top. Handmade corn tamales are stuffed with pork and smothered in a classic New Mexican-chile sauce. The eatery in Edwards Plaza is brightly decorated with New Mexican folk art and paintings. More than 20 tequilas keep the bar—and patrons—hopping.

We went with our yearly ski group. Everything was wonderful. Since we were the only ones in the room, I would’ve liked our table of 10 to be a little bit away from the wall and not so cramped.

Fiestas is good Mexican food. You'll find the usual tacos, fajitas, etc. And, they have some more interesting dishes as well. I like that they don't serve those pasty refried beans with some dishes. Their chips are fresh and light, and they come with two heats of salsa. Recommend for consistently good food at fair prices with nice and competent servers.

This local favorite never disapoints for serving up good tex-mex food and drinks. We enjoyed some great blue-corn enchaladas and margaritas. The staff was super helpful and very friendly. Would definately dine here again.

With our party of 6, they were ready to seat us as soon as we got there. Patrick was our waiter and he was very attentive and answered any questions we had. Service was excellent! We each ordered something different (quesadillas, enchiladas, taquitos, etc) and no one was disappointed -- all meals were fresh and delicious. I ordered the spinach enchiladas and they actually used FRESH spinach, not the frozen kind, cooked to perfection and rolled in fresh tortillas. So yummy! 'Wish we were still in town because I'd go there again in a heartbeat. You can't go wrong with Fiesta's if you have a hankering for Mexican food!

Very friendly wait staff. I had chili rellenos that were excellent smothered in green chili. My friends had blue corn tortilla enchiladas and a pork burrito also with the green chili. Excellent meal, good beer, atmosphere conducive to good conversation. We'll be back. Good find!!

Service was good, food was OK. We ordered their "Perfect Margarita", but they were out of Grand Marnier to make these, despite the fact that there is a liquor store in the vicinity.

Usually very good and fun place to eat. However on this occasion, service and wait staff seemed very disorganized. Brought "shrimp" enchilada instead of "spinach" enchilada that I ordered. I'm allergic to shrimp. After one bite, had to leave because I was having an allergic reaction. Ruined our family get together and the entire evening and next day due to reaction. Lucky it wasn't more serious.

Fiestas honors Open Table reservations. When we arrived, the line was out the door. The diners included a large number of locals speaking Spanish, a testament to the popularity and authenticity of the food. For our tastes however, the food was of average quality.

We went during the week at around 6:30. We walked in and had that "oh, oh" moment. Several empty tables had not been bused, and people waiting to be seated. We had made a reservation but it certainly did not make a difference. They were terribly under staffed. It took forever once we were seated to get service. Ordered drinks and it took 15 minutes. What should have been an hour meal stretched into almost two hours. We ordered as fast as we could, easy items like fish tacos, etc. and it still took forever. The hostess/manager does not know how to run a resteraunt . She had her staff running all over the place, then she ducked in the back while people piled up at the front door waiting to seated. The food was good, but not worth the bad service. Will not be back.

Food was 5/10. Homey feel inside restaurant. Overcharged and $40 of unauthorized service in our large party added to our bill. Called restaurant, weren't willing to refund the exorbitant service charge. Watch your bill!

Folks were very nice. Restaurant was about what one should expect when you go to a strip mall for Mexican food. You aren't going for the decor or the plush, scenic surroundings. That said, we were a party of five, our table was ready when we arrived, the food came quickly, service was good and everything was pretty authentic, fresh and tasty. I'm a fan.

On our most recent visit and most likely our last....we entered the restaurant and stood at the front entrance for awhile...many staff looked up at us then looked down...finally someone came up to the front...I mentioned we had an open table res (I looked at the notebook on the front desk and saw our name)...the girl didn't seem to know what I was talking about. We were seated then ignored for a while...until someone came over and said the other gal is our server....she finally came over/took our order....I asked for water 3 times...we then ordered drinks/dinner....our food came before our drinks....and still no water....the service was awful and the food just so so. On our prior visit, I ordered ala carte and receive a full dinner plate (at twice the cost...I wouldn't mind paying if I actually ate rice/beans)...Pass on this place....

Our food service was pitiful, took almost an hour to get our dinner. Childs meal ordered as we sat and after inquiring many times for a status, arrived with the rest of the meals. One entree was received even later, forgot to place the order in. This restaurant should be written off !!
