The portions are small, so you can taste many of the dishes. The service is very fast. Usually it is very crowded. The cochinita pibil, is deliciuos also the Lima soup. If you are not used to hot food, be careful with the habanero sause. Leave space for dessert.

This is definitively one of my top choices for restaurants in Mexico City. I have eaten here over 20 times and will continue to visit. I never tire of recommending this place. The price-quality equation has no equal. This is not a place to linger around.. they want you to move out as soon as possible, since the prices are... More

This place is a must if you are around del Valle. The food is extremely good, especially the octopus tacos and the lima soup. The prices are reasonable Be prepared to pay in cash

One of the best places to eat the real mexican food. Not inside the tourists circuits, but worth the trip to La Fonda 99. Just a few block from Metro Hospital 20 de Noviembre, in the middle of La del Valle Neighborhood, this restaurant offers the best Yucatan dishes outside Yucatan. Cochinita, lechón, papadzules, sopa de lima, this restaurant has... More

Considered one of the best Yucatecan restaurants in Mexico City I went with some workmates this past spring. It did not disappoint ... all of the food was incredible ... great portions, flavors and fast/quick service. Even more surprising even given its renown the place has kept the prices very reasonable.

I used to frequent Fonda 99.99 back in 2009 on assignment in Mexico City. But tonight I got to revisit since I now live in the City. The habanero salsa is Increíble! Just a scant spoon in the sopa Lima and you are ready to go!

We ended up eating at 99.99 because we were near it and craved for cochinita and queso relleno. The place reminded me of an American diner. The service was very fast but not quality. The food was very good, but the menu was just tacos. Prices are very accessible.

This is a "fonda" NOT a restaurant...and for those of you not familiar with the concept, it´s basically the same thing, only with a smaller menu and much cheaper prizes. It´s located in the "colonia del valle" in the south of Mexico City. It opens at 13:00 hrs and on the weekends either get there at 12:45 or at 14:00,... More

My hidden gem has been outed! With the medical facility down the street, they have a constant stream of clients, and it's too bad they're only open for comida, but still some of the best Yucatec food in DF.
