We visited with our granddaughter (and her parents) for her Christmas band concert. She chose as her place to eat: La Siesta Mexican Restaurant. The food was well prepared and tasty. The service was excellent.

I prefer this location and this chain because it compares better to its other competitors like Camino Real. Everything here is good, and in addition to the Mexican fare you can try Peruvian food too. The staff and owners are attentive and solicitous. They make good recommendations. Discount for MTSU community.

Seems like they have always been here. In a city where a Mexican restaurant opens every month in every center, LA Siesta is my longtime standby. Its no coincidence they have been awarded "Ruthies" awards for favorite for years. My wife and I go there when we are in a hurry. The food is consistent and service is very good.

La Siesta has a pleasant atmosphere, attentive waiters, decent food from a large menu and gets you in and out fast for a sit-down place. It is not fancy and not gourmet, but great for a fast lunch or meeting friends. The sangria they make is very good!

Clean, decent service, large variety of items on the menu but I found the food bland and leaving something to be desired. Of course this is common with Americanized Mexican food. Our waiter was obviously new, lacked the fine tuning of what it means to allow guests to enjoy and finish their meal, but overall was a very nice young... More

Bland! No spices! I could see many different onions and items in my taco salad. I don't know why the food is so bland. The place is clean and service is fine. However, there are too many other restaurants in the 'Boro to come back here.

For a casual and inexpensive meal, this is a good restaurant. My husband likes the Chili Colorado and I like the tamales or spinach enchiladas. Good sangria and margaritas. Love the guacamole. Clean and organized, local and friendly! This is in a strip mall, but has decent seating for a group and for small families. They own another one near... More

Great place, great owners, always good. Lunch menu is very reasonable. Outdoor seating is a great spot to hang out too.
