ZEST: La Fiesta a fresh spin on traditional Mexican fare

— The home of great, authentic Mexican "comida," La Fiesta Grill and Cantina is a classic-style Mexican restaurant offering true family dining and Mexican culture through a fresh spin on traditional Mexican fare.

Chef Edgar Ruiz combines such old-world flavors as chipotle, cilantro and distinct cheeses, with beautiful presentations and fresh ingredients in a restaurant that's "para la familia," following the most valued of Mexican traditions.

Inspired by his grandmother's cooking and traditional dishes of old Mexico, his recipes retain an authenticity everyone will enjoy. Choose from a variety of fajitas — including skirt steak, grilled chicken, jumbo shrimp and chipotle chicken — as well as taco platters, including the ever-popular $2 tacos. La Fiesta also offers a full line of salads and a Healthy Choice menu, including the Spinach Enchiladas with pico de gallo smothered in tomato sauce. It also offers a full line of vegan, vegetarian and gluten- and dairy-free options.

Other popular dishes include the Shrimp Cabo Wabo (jumbo shrimp, sautéed onion, celery and mushrooms simmered in chipotle and cabo wabo tequila sauce); Chicken Mole (grilled chicken topped with sweet red chili sauce); and Chile Rellenos (large poblano pepper stuffed with cheese, egg-battered and pan-fried with black beans, corn pico and ranchero sauce).

On the cantina side, choose from a variety of flavored margaritas, including cucumber, spicy mango, avocado, grapefruit and jalapeno infused. La Fiesta also stocks more than 50 varieties of tequilas to bring even more fiesta to your dining experience.
