Tucked away ever-so-slightly below street level, Fiesta is a faithful interpretation of the kind of family-style Tex-Mex restaurant you find in small town America. The staff members waiting outside are eager – perhaps a little too eager – but considering we were the only people eating there on a Wednesday afternoon it may just have been out of boredom.

Their menu comes in the form of an annoying technological device, but does boast some mouthwatering options. Once we figured out what we were doing with the iPad, we went with a quesadilla with chorizo (RMB 72), fajitas pollo (RMB 86), and guacamole (RMB 45).

The dishes that arrived were delicate and full of flavor – the guacamole was tasty, fresh, and topped off with crumbled feta, although it was a somewhat small portion for RMB 45. The quesadilla was stuffed to the brim with a mixture of chorizo, tomatoes, cheese, herbs, and more, and came with sour cream and extra-fresh salsa.

The fajitas also lived up to expectations. The chicken and vegetables were sizzling when served, spiced beautifully, and disehes up along with two sizeable fresh tortilla wraps. The filling was plenty for these two. Overall, we found the food we ordered was enough to fill two people.

Prices at Fiesta are relatively steep considering the portion size, but the quality is solid and the service is quick. This may be the perfect place to take your family, those picky visitors who just won’t eat malatang, or for colleagues in the Sanlitun area to have dinner after a long day at work.
