La Fiesta has lasted through many changes since it opened in 1964 (in what had once been a Safeway), including the recent loss of founder and patriarch Michael Herrera, who passed away in February 2020. But the Den-Mex mainstay has carried on, with members of the extended family serving timelessly tasty chiles rellenos fried in giant wonton wrappers and smothered in hot, hot green chile. La Fiesta has become a living history museum of Mexican food as it has evolved to fit the tastes of the neighborhood.
