Fiesta Azteca has moved to Lee’s Summit
In an update to an earlier post, Fiesta Azteca has moved from Raytown to Lee’s Summit. Don’t expect any changes other than in the size of the restaurant. The digs are much roomier, but owner Andres Orozco is still roaming the tables, exhorting guests to try something other than the usual Mexican fare. He continues to be a cheerleader for his brand, touting dishes not commonly found on most Mexican restaurants about town.
In an attempt to sample items I had not tried before, we enjoyed the carnitas, essentially double-cooked pork that has been “crisped” after slow-cooking in the oven, and cactus enchiladas with green chile sauce, both of which were worthy of Orozco’s accolades. My one dismay was that the salsa which accompanies the chips was so thin that we couldn’t help but make a mess every time we scooped it up…dripping on the menu, our sweaters, and the table.
The new address is 705 SE Melody Lane, just off Hwy 291.
Yes, you can get tacos or burritos, but do yourself a favor and branch out a bit. Your taste buds will thank you.
