It certainly was worth the wait.

The new Casa Fiesta held its grand opening Monday night and packed the house for the Norwalk Area-Huron County Chamber of Commerce event and ribbon-cutting.

The restaurant officially opened to the public today.

Owner Ramon Ornelas was thrilled with his new restaurant, located in the old Ponderosa building on Milan Avenue.

"Actually, this is what I had in mind for a long time," Ornelas said. "Great people in Norwalk. I am paying back the people."

The old restaurant, located farther south on Milan Avenue next to Vargo's, simply ran out of room for the expanding business. "We were very happy there for seven years," Ornelas said.

The new restaurant can seat 235 people, compared to 140 in the old one.

"This was my plan," he said. "It's better than what I though. There were a lot of heartaches, but we got it."

The restaurant includes an outside patio and bar. "This is the real thing," Ornelas said. "You won't see anything like this around."

"I thought it was beautiful," Chamber Executive Director Melissa James said. "There is a lot of activity out there at Norwalk Commons. I think when you get a gem like this, it will start sparking other folks to make the move.

"One of the guys said to me when you walk in it feels like walking into a resort in Cancun," James continued. "They have paid so much time to detail. They have added a lot of choices to their menu. The community that came out last night was just thrilled with what Ramone and his staff have done."

I had a server that had the habit of flipping her hair around the food.even though she had it in a pony tail it was very long and still got in the food.That was at their old location in Bellevue. The restrooms smelled awful. My friend and her husband were in eating at that same location when one of the young workers wheeled a mini bike in the Front Door and it was still running. We never went back.Ijust hope they follow strict sanitaion guidelines and make sure everyone has proper immunizations. The public health should be protected.

another review ...

went to their location in Fremont. The food was cold and tasted like rancid grease. The place was a dirty mess. Not impressed and won't patronize any of their locations.

In FL now (Anon...

Are ya'll kidding? Berrys?????? Who cares if they serve drinks in there little park?? WHO eats there under the age of 50??????? I use to live in Norwalk I ate at Berrys once. The food is horrible. Maybe they should focus more on that than beer in the park.
