I am back this week to bring you a review of possibly my favorite Mexican place in Michigan!
When you first walk in to Mexican Fiesta II, there is a small high-top sitting area on the right and the main dining area on the left. Straight ahead is the carryout pickup and cash register. The restaurant is decorated in neutral tones with Mexican accents.
While the restaurant was packed, we were seated quickly in an area surrounded by full tables. Several servers passed by but no one stopped to take our drink orders or bring chips & salsa for about seven minutes. If we weren’t so stuck on having a Botana, we probably would’ve left.
The menu is broken down into Appetizers, Tacos, Tostadas, Soup & Salads, Burritos, Enchiladas, Entrees, Combination Dinners, Fajitas, Egg Dishes, American Favorites, Sandwiches, Sides, and Drinks.
Chips and two kinds of salsa are brought out with the drinks. The salsa is thin and liquid (rather than chunky). One is hot while the other is mild. The chips are obviously homemade and very crispy. It would be very easy to fill up on these before the food comes.
As I mentioned earlier, we had the botana, which is technically an appetizer but is large enough for two as an entrée. A botana is tortilla chips covered with refried beans, Mexican sausage, melted cheese and topped with tomatoes, onions, olives, green peppers, and avocado slices. It is also available in a small size (Tuesday, the mini botana is on lunch special for $6).
While this restaurant has been a favorite for carry-out for as long as I can remember and while we did not have great service at the beginning, the botana made up for it in the end. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant!
