Restaurant Review: Fiesta Martin Mexican Grill - Inglewood
The best part about moving to the other side of the world is that you not only get to meet amazing new people and discover new surroundings but you also get to try out new delicious places to eat! So far my favorite spot is Fiesta Martin Mexican Grill on 1330 N La Brea Ave in Inglewood and here's why!
Even when you have nothing to celebrate, visiting Fiesta Martin gets you in a party mood!
First of all they make the most insanely delicious cocktails! My favorite fruity frozen Margarita is off the chain and for the brave ones among us they will even put a shot of patron on top of it!
Once you get settled in with your drink (don't worry, you don't have to drink alcohol, there's plenty of other options available like sodas) you will find that the atmosphere in this restaurant is phenomenal. There are so many details to discover on the walls and all around you! The staff works very hard to make sure you have everything you need, from tap water to chips & dip, within a blink of an eye you're all set to check out the tasty menu. There are plenty of Mexican dishes to choose from so there's really something for everyone. I'm a tapas kind of girl who really loves to taste a little bit of everything. My favorite dish is the Fiesta Platter (cheese quesadilla, beef or chicken taquitos, nachos, guacamole, sour cream, jalapeños & pico de gallo), which is actually an appetizer but it looks like a main course because of its large portion. Also on my recommendations list are the spinach & cheese enchiladas and there's also a dish with chicken and fries that was very tasty but I forgot what it was called.
I've been to this place several times and, without exaggerating, most of the time the place is rich with people. But the good thing is, the service is still on point. The pricing is fine when you see it as a place to go to every once in a while. The only thing I'd suggest as a point of improvement is to turn down the volume of the music a little bit. Having a conversation in a crowded place where the music is too loud is almost impossible. As a Dutch lady in the County of LA I'm happy to have a go-to spot around the corner that makes me feel right at home!
Check 'em out when you're in the neighborhood! They're open from 8 till 10 (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday) and 8 till 11 on Tuesdays, Fridays & Saturdays. Fiesta Martin Mexican Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here's the address once again: 1330 N La Brea Ave in Inglewood. Make sure you follow them on Instagram and Facebook too!
