I have driven by this place so many times. It seems to always be packed.
In the area yesterday afternoon, I decided this would be the time to check it out.
I walk in to find this family owned restaurant filled with lovely and fun mexican decor. I asked for a menu and was told I could take it to my car and look it over if I wanted to. This was no small menu. I was a bit skeptical. Could all of the patrons that fill this place nightly be wrong???
Here is the thing: Large menus make me nervous. Why? Because, nobody does it all well or so that had been my belief system. I ordered the Chalupa meal with re-fried beans and rice. I also like variety so I ordered three different soft shell tacos. One true tell for me with good Mexican cuisine is the guacamole. Is it made on site? Is it fresh? Time would tell.
I waited for about fifteen minutes. I didn't know what to expect but I really had an open mind. I had waited for a long time to try the food here.
It was handed to me in a box and everything was neatly wrapped. So I drove home with the anticipation of a having good meal.
Here's the deal: I have been to Mexico several time and really had missed authentic Mexican foods. So I opened my wrapped goodies to find huge tacos and other mouth watering food.
The food was incredible. One word kept coming into my head, fresh!!
It was authentic mexican cooking at its very finest. True test? The guacamole was heavenly. So delicate and packed with flavor. It was easy to taste that it was super fresh and delicious. I smeared it inside the tacos which were filled with equally fresh ingredients.
The corn chips that were made there and the salsa was amazing. The experience was refreshing and it didn't disappoint.
I look forward to my next trip which will be soon. I recommend this to anyone that likes true authentic Mexican cuisine.
Sadly, I can't say that many people have tried authentic, great mexican food if this the top pick for restaurants. I completely understand that Red Wing does not have a lot of options, but my experience was terrible.
I had a great appetizer - Mexican Pizza
I ordered Chimichangas - the chicken was bland and flavorless
The rice and beans did not have much flavor also.
I told the manager and my waiter and he offered 20% off because he wanted to cover the cost of the food.
I literally ate 2 bites of my meal and pushed the rest away.
The manager walked away and said that was all he could do and when I asked if we could talk he said he'd call the police AND DID!!
I was happy with the appetizer and my husband was evening willing to pay for his meal which was fair at best.
Other than that, I've visited Red Wing before and the other places are great, but I wish people could try a great restaurant like Don Quijotes-Minneapolis or La Perla-Milwaukee,WI
Chi Chi's was even better!
Every time we have friends come and visit we take them to Fiesta to eat. They all want to come back and go again! The portions are large, the pricce is great, the waitstaff (for the most part) are fabulous, and they serve the food so fast!!! Can't say enough good things about this place!!!
We are big Mexican food lovers and after moving to Red Wing we crossed our fingers that we would enjoy the food, well 3 months and 5 visits later I can tell you that you dont want to miss out on this place. Awsome food, affordabel price, its always been fast, quick service, always perfect, and plenty of leftovers.
