Craving a proper burrito or two? Then La Fiesta is your place to go. Tacos, enchiladas, burritos, various salads and other interesting dishes of the Tex-Mex and Mexican section of our cravings. I do recommend the lamb shoulder tacos, and the spicy chicken stuff. Delicious!

Maybe I still don't know the actual difference between all these wraps of the Mexican cuisine, but I know what I like and at La Fiesta, all of the dishes I tried so far are good. The portions are big and satisfying, also for big eaters and if you are vegetarian, then rest assured that all the dishes on the extensive menu can also be prepared as a veggie option.

Just imagine walking through the desert with a crow... wait no, walking through the city with a lizard rather. Or something. I am confused now. Well, just imagine you are hungry, thirsty and craving for a hearty burrito and a pitcher of sangria. Here is your dreamland, just do it!

Even this fellow here would approve!
