The sides were what really hurt La Siesta: retried beans so heavily blended and bland, they were like baby food; rice was flavorless; and flour tortillas were small. The Popeye's dinner of chicken chunks, spinach and cheese was pretty good, but the side brought down...More

Recommended by our hotel, this place turned out to be located just blocks from the concert we came here for. Had the grande enchilada and taco combination. Lots of chicken and quite tasty. Parking meters operate till 7, they offer full bar as well.

The price is fair, you can get huge portions with $10. Also, if you go on your birthday you can get one shot of tequila free with mariates singing happy birthday in Spanish. It's pretty cool. I really liked it.

Love the food at all the La Siesta locations. Staff is fun, margaritas are tasty, and service is fast. Where else can you get avocado margaritas and the best cucumber salad in Columbia, Missouri?

No other place downtown Columbia has the variety of dishes and menu for Mexican food as La Siesta. I am a sucker for their flautas.
