We brought a group of six in and the lots were full, but we were seated right away. Most had the buffet and were pleased with the selection. Service was very good and reasonable prices. La Fonda has a long resutation as a place to go to in Artesia - well worth the stop.

They also have a buffet that patrons can choose to eat from versus the items on their menu. The food is delicious, but it is not your... More

It was better than the reviews led us to believe. Salsa and fresh sopapillas were especially great. Service was very friendly and the atmosphere festive.

Went here for my birthday lunch. The atmosphere was okay, the menu looked wonderful. Unfortunately, we sat at our table for over 20 minutes with absolutely NO service. The waiter saw us, just refused to acknowledge our presence. The table that was seated after us got their drinks and food while we were just waiting for contact. The waiter wouldn't... More

Lots of choices and what I would like to think of an "real" food. Affordable dining. Santa Fe chicken was delicious.

It a nice place to eat if you like Mexican food. We eat there quite a bit since there isn't a lot of restaurants in town. The guacamole and hot suace are always a need to have. I would recommend this place if u are craving some Mexican food!!
