Third "Fiesta" opens, this one in Richland
RICHLAND, Wash -- One of the Tri-Cities favorite restaurants opened the doors of its third location today.
Fiesta Restaurant is now open in the Queensgate area, opposite Target.
Owner Isidro Ortiz has two other Fiesta locations, one in Kennewick and one in Pasco. The Tri-City Herald "People's Choice" awards just named "Fiesta" the best Mexican food in the area.
Ortiz said with the new Richland location they can serve their loyal customers in all three Tri-Cities.
"I think it's a great location, great area. So we are very excited, very fast growing area in Queensgate, quite a bit of traffic but now with the round about they are building on Queensgate the traffic's gonna flow a lot better and I think it's gonna be a great benefit for us," says Ortiz.
Fiesta is best known for it's tortilla and salsa bar and table side guacamole. Ortiz says his restaurant still uses his mother's traditional recipes.
