The taco truck that we wanted to eat at was randomly closed so we decided to try Fiesta Taqueria & Tequila Bar. They have a second location in Southhill Puyallup.
We dropped in on a Saturday (around noon) and were seated right away. The place slowly filled up. The inside is spacious with several booths and a couple seats at the bar. They had a couple TV’s playing college softball and golf.
There’s a self-service sauce bar (up near the front) with four salsas (mild to spicy), pickled carrot/peppers and chopped onions.
My favourite was the salsa verde.
Menu is quite large. They have some interesting but pricey Oaxaca specialty dishes ($17.99 USD to $22.95 USD).
Three enchiladas ($13.99 USD)
We opted for the mole sauce with shredded beef but they gave us shredded chicken instead. The plate comes with rice and refried beans; both which were done well. The shredded chicken was unfortunately dry. The mole wasn’t too rich; slightly thick and a touch of chocolate came through.
The lengua was fantastic; super tender and flavourful. The mild orange salsa that they added was very tasty. We were happy that they gave us three lengua tacos.
Sadly, the asada was ground beef instead of grilled steak. Even sadder was that the ground beef was dry.
Decent eats at Fiesta but the dry meats were a bummer. Get the lengua!
