I haven’t had much Mexican food since I relocated to western Pennsylvania. And Taco Bell doesn’t count. That changed when my wife and I tried one of Uniontown’s Mexican restaurants. Stay tuned for my Fiesta Azteca review.
Initial Reaction Upon Arrival
We had to do a strange u-turn to get to the restaurant since it has a median between our car and the parking lot. Upon arrival, there was plenty of parking since we arrived around 4 p.m. which is before the dinner crowd hits.
The decor was very on-brand for a Mexican restaurant. When you walk in you may find yourself thinking, “Holy crap, this feels like a Mexican restaurant.”
When we walked in we were immediately greeted and taken to our table. The decor was very on-brand for a Mexican restaurant. When you walk in you may find yourself thinking, “Holy crap, this feels like a Mexican restaurant.”
Our server greeted us and got our drink order in an extremely satisfactory amount of time.
Chips and Salsa
We all know every trip to a Mexican restaurant starts with chips and salsa. The chips were fresh and appeared to be made in-house. The salsa was the classic delicious Mexican restaurant-style salsa. Great way to start off the meal.
Fiesta Azteca Uniontown PA Menu
The menu was very similar to most of the Mexican restaurants I’ve been to throughout my life. Sorry if that’s not the best explanation. It had sections for chicken, beef, seafood, burritos, lunch specials, dinners, appetizers, etc. You can take a look at the full menu here.
One thing they did not have was the numbered combination plates I’ve seen at many other restaurants. Normally they will be numbered 1 to 20 featuring every possible combination of popular Mexican food items like burritos, tacos, burritos, rice and beans. They did have an option where you can combine items from a list of Mexican foods to create your own combination plate.
What We Ordered
I had the Enchiladas Supreme. This consists of four enchiladas: chicken, beef, cheese and bean topped with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.
The beef and chicken were very well-seasoned. The veggies were fresh and there was an adequate amount of sour cream. There was a whole lot of lettuce, which could be fine for most, but for me it was a bit too much.
The wife had Shrimp Fajitas. I have to give it to her, it was a much better choice than I made. Is there a better moment than when that sizzling fajita plate is headed for your table? If there is I don’t know it.
They were freaking awesome. The shrimp was seasoned amazingly and the veggies were crispy and also perfectly seasoned. Why does anyone order anything besides fajitas at a Mexican restaurant, again?
Our server did a great job. He was very friendly and quick to take our order and check on us to see if we need anything. He gave us a drink refill before our drinks were even empty. The food came out fast and piping out so shoutout to the chefs. The staff truly pitched a perfect game for our meal. A+ service.
What About the Margaritas?
The margaritas were exactly what I would expect at a Mexican restaurant. We both had a frozen strawberry marg and it was loaded with sugar and tequila, just how I like it.
The wife and I had dinner with a jumbo margarita each for around $45 + tip. A very fair price for a quality dining experience when you factor in we each had a jumbo marg.
Danielle and I give Fiesta Azteca in Uniontown a big thumbs up!
If you’re in the Uniontown area and thinking about grabbing some Mexican food, go ahead and grab it at Fiesta Azteca! Great service and great food, what else do you need?
