Was on weekend trip to Palm Springs when discovered this restaurant by accident, it is not really visible when driving down the road it sort of blended in with all the other buildings as the color was the same color as the other buildings. This restaurant was nice but it seemed to be more for locals. We were warmly greeted... More

After years of driving by we finally decided to try out La Gran Fiesta. The restaurant has a casual, welcoming atmosphere. The service was fast & friendly. We all enjoyed our meals. The chicken picato was especially good and worth returning for. In our neighborhood in Cathedral City we're extremely spoiled for good Mexican food with a number of restaurants... More

Been frequent diners here for over 30 years. Always consistently great. Proprietors and staff are always friendly and welcoming. Tried many places but always come back here. Great salsa and chips and food is always fresh and tasty.

But I accidentally found it about a year ago and decided to try it again as I was... More

Stopped here for lunch on drive from LA to Phoenix. A chance to sit in a festively decorated space and rest from the stressful drive. The owner waited on us, was very attentive and explained the detailed menu. Food was average, but tasty and plentiful. A very good experience overall!

a good feel upon entering with a friendly staff & varied menu. Draft beers available by the pitcher as are the Margaritas. Same owners have operated since 1975!

The wife and I was there to eat lunch. I had the Mexican combo and she had the shrimp cocktail. The shrimp was partly frozen. We told the manager/owner about it and she said that all of her food is fresh and never frozen. She lied to us and never told reasonability about it nor did she ever said that... More

They have an extensive menu of fabulous Mexican food and if you don't see it on the menu? No problem! Just let them know what you'd like and they'll knock themselves out to... More
