Went to La Fiesta Today in Burlington and sat down like normal. I normally go to Mebane but was in Burlington so went to a new location. Ordered drinks and literally that was the last time the waitress checked on us. The cook brought out the food and after 15 minutes of waiting I went to the front and asked... More

We were in the area and looked up the closest Mexican restaurant. Great food, although a little on the pricer side. Friendly staff and the salsa was excellent! The inside is nicer than the outside appears. :) It was busy, which is always a good sign! We will be back!

IMO this particular dish it is not very easy to find. It come with 2 pieces of C.R. The beans were simple and genuine, not filled with tons of cheese. Rice and beans Mexican style. The spicy salsa was good too. We do not live close by, just driving back home. Nice restaurant. The cantina is on the other side... More

Love going to La Fiesta. They have amazing food I've never had a bad meal. Best guacamole I've eaten anywhere. The service is great and food is always quick to come out despite how busy they normally are. Staff is always friendly.

You can dine in or get carry out. I highly recommend the spinach enchiladas - delicious! A little pricey, but overall good.

This is an informal family type restaurant. The service is quick and the food is just what you would expect. There are no stand outs or special items on the menu. The sides are the usual rice, re fried beans, and pico de galo. Then again there are no disappointments. It's like ordering fries at McDonald's. You get exactly what... More

This is without a doubt the best Mexican Restaurant around, and in my opinion the best restaurant in town both for flavor and value.
