There is simply no comparison to Fiesta Mexicana with our décor, atmosphere, colorful, hand painted traditional furniture, and live Mexican music on weekends if you want to immerse yourself in true traditional Mexican ambiance.  Our large menu includes many dishes you rarely see outside of Mexico, such as Tampiqueña al Diablo (spicy!) or Pollo Borracho. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and children’s choices are well represented among seafood, poultry, beef, pork, and vegetable dishes on our menu. 

 Come sample one of our famous, fabulous margaritas. Who knows what we may be mixing that night… a Pink Panther or maybe our famous Cadillac?  Like your margarita with some extra kick? We’ll bring you an extra shot on the side.  Whether it is cactus or coconut, our smiling and entertaining bartenders can mix up just about anything Southwest you can think of that can go into a margarita. 

On the topic of margaritas, we now feature Mezcal.

Bet you were always jealous when someone else got one of those cute little paper umbrellas in their tropical drink as a kid.  We loved them too, so guess which of our delicious margaritas comes with one of your very own! Now that is something to Ole about
