La Fiesta Restaurant Review

: La Fiesta is popular for its extensive selection of fajitas, as well as a menu that explores many regions of Mexico. There is a variety of unusual seafood dishes, such as lobster quesadillas, ceviches in the style of Cancun and Acapulco, and molcajete Cancun, a medley of white fish, crab meat, mussels, scallops, clams, octopus, shrimp and prawns, baked in roasted red pepper sauce. Enjoy them on the somewhat narrow outdoor terrace that's dog friendly, or in the pleasant interior dining room. Brunch features three-egg frittatas, lobster Benedict, sweet crêpes, and Mexican skillets like chilaquiles verde. Mango mimosas are a refreshing libation to accompany any brunch meal.
