Ravenous crowds from all over town flock to La Fiesta for their midday meals. They're drawn by the convivial vibe of the huge dining room (this was once a Safeway), the friendly family that runs the joint (which is open for weekday lunches only) and the huge portions of delectably cheesy, greasy, addictive Colorado-style Mexican food, including great chiles rellenos and a hot -- very hot -- green chile packed with pork, tomatoes and peppers.
