Not having been in the area before, we received a dinner recommendation from our hotel. Based on their suggestion we found Fonda Don Chon Restaurant "hidden" in a strip mall in Covina. The Schwarzenegger Tacos (shrimp) were outstanding. We have eaten in lots and lots of Mexican restaurants before, but the food here was among the best! Servers were polite... More

Do not let the name of this restaurant fool you; this is a first-class Mexican restaurant with a really delicious buffet as well as order-off-the-menu items. There is usually a 15-minute wait around the lunch hour, but it’s completely worth it. The food is genuine, the service is superb, and the prices are excellent. This is a locals-only place, and...

My dad passed in march 2012 and I couldn't find myself going back to Don Chon's for a awhile. In 2013 my husband and I revisited and the food was wonderful. The dishes have an... More

Salad and fruit always fresh, they always have papaya which I like. Lunch buffet used to be something like $6.99 but when we went yesterday, it was up to $8.99. Still good but with the... More
