Best Of 2013: Neighborhood Restaurant: Monument
There are at least three more awards from the Indy on the walls here at La Casa Fiesta, but you'd probably miss them among all the festive Mexican decoration that also adorns the restaurant's interior. It's part of what makes La Casa Fiesta all things to all people, along with a cozy bar, spacious dining area and incredible heated patio. Among other "neighborhood restaurant" offerings: Well-priced kids menu? Check. Speedy service? Check. American food for the group's token gringo? Check. Chipotle-lime ribs that literally fall off the bone? Check! — Jeff Koch
Indy readers' choice for Monument neighborhood eatery, with 60-plus years history under the Morris family. It's known for superior margaritas (more than 60 tequilas are on hand), and best-sellers like the smoked pork carnitas and chipotle honey lime ribs. Also features a full gluten-free menu.
