My husband & I sometimes stop for dinner on our way home from church on Saturday nights. Amanda's Fonda has some great offerings in their "Small Combos" part of their menu. They're very inexpensive & very tasty; a nice idea for retirees on a limited budget! The service is always very good...greeted on the way in & on the way... More

I would return for drinks on their lovely patio. I don't think I would return for the food. I have been twice and never impressed at all with the food. My beans and rice are always cold.

All our orders were wholesome and fresh and well prepared. We all loved our food and the portions were huge. The wait for our food was very short and our waiter was attentive and courteous.... More

In one word - fresh - would describe this restaurant. Very stylish interior ( copper ceiling ), friendly service and great mexican dishes ( try the carne asada ). Margaritas are fantastic and they actually play background Mexican music ( not some "top 40" junk ).

We wanted to try places that we cannot get at home so we avoided fast food or chains on our vacation and opted for new flavors. We weren't disappointed when we chose this restaurant for a meal. The building itself was something to see! Beautiful deco and the ceiling tiles were beautiful!

In the warm months sit on the outdoor patio next to the stream and get a Hornitos margarita. Your life will be complete. Food is very good if not stellar. Service is prompt and friendly.

We stopped in and thought it was such a cute, quaint spot, and that it is...But....the service is terrible. You will die of thirst before they come to refill your drinks...Our waitress never came back and we had to flag another down. Unbelievable bad service.. My husband left a dollar tip which I thought was a dollar too much.
