Fiesta Mexican Restaurant in East Bridgewater, MA is truly a hidden gem. Located in the busy heart of East Bridgewater, Fiesta Mexican Restaurant offers authentic Mexican cuisine with great service at a fair price (not to mention $3 margaritas). Whether you’re taking the family out for a birthday meal – like we did – or just looking to grab a drink in their festive bar, Fiesta Mexican Restaurant is the place to go.
Authentic Food with a Mishmash Mexican Theme
It was a Monday night when my family and I took my father to Fiesta Mexican Restaurant for his birthday. Monday nights tend to be slow nights for restaurants in general and this day was no exception. We were seated right away and had almost the entire dining room to ourselves.
The walls and tables were decorated in traditional Mexican restaurant fashion: a mishmash of terracotta pots, painted ceramic tiles, cloth dolls with sombreros and bright string lights on a backdrop of bright oasis murals. In the corners were TVs playing ESPN.
The big, bar area on the other side of the restaurant was decorated in much the same way – also with TVs playing ESPN.
Once seated, the waiter brought over a few baskets of homemade tortilla chips with homemade salsa. They were hot and a delicious starter.
The waiter was patient, friendly and soft spoken. He was quick to take our order, got everything right and gave us enough attention without being overbearing.
The Food and Drinks at Fiesta Mexican Restaurant East Bridgewater MA
Their menu is large and has a ton of options. Offerings range from traditional Mexican food like burritos and tacos to American food like burgers and salads.
I ordered the Fiesta Chimichanga with shredded chicken. Some Mexican restaurants offer shredded beef, which is usually my first choice; but Fiesta Mexican Restaurant does not have shredded beef. It came on a bed of Mexican rice and refried beans and smothered in cheese sauce.
It was fairly priced at around $11.
The drink menu at Fiesta is run-of-the-mill. However, one of their drinks stood out – the Fiesta Margarita. It was only $3.
When I ordered it, I wasn’t expecting much (what can you get for $3, right?). I figured it would be tiny and they would use the cheapest tequila they had. To my surprise, it was a decent size and tasted great; so I ordered 2!
Birthday Fun at Fiesta Restaurant
We let the waiter know that it was our father’s birthday. At the end of the meal, he came out with 2 other coworkers, a big sombrero and a guitar. They slapped that sombrero on my dad’s head and busted out “Happy Birthday” in Spanish. It was awesome and totally embarrassing for him.
Along with the song, they gave him some free ice cream. Fiesta Mexican Restaurant is more fun than Abington Alehouse for a birthday.
