The menu, atmosphere and prices were very good and the service was excellent. However our tabs had an automatic 18% tip added upon which tax was improperly charged. Our party which included a mathematics professor, an attorney and three others with doctorates questioned a befuddled staff about this and they did adjust our bills. This isn't a reason not to dine a La Fiesta but you should double check their math.

We were a party of 9 last night at the NW 39th Ave location, and the service was outstanding. The server returned to our table many times to see if anyone needed anything. The serving portions were large. Several folks asked for boxes and took home part of their meal. In my opinion, the food was good, but not outstanding. I ordered the Dos Tacos dinner with soft tacos. The chicken tacos and accompaniments were as described and tasty. However, I would not describe the food as authentic. It didn't come close to what I have had during several trips to Mexico or even at La Tienda here in Gainesville which I consider more authentic.

Good mexican dishes. Fresh salsa and tortillas. Enchilladas and buritos were delicious. Each sold separately.

La Fiesta is excellent, authentic Mexican in Gainesville! It is by far my favorite Mexican food is town. If you like spicy food, don't miss the chili burrito. Everything comes out fast and fresh. Don't miss!
