So good

This restaurant is fantastic- real Mexican food. I am a huge fan of Mexican food and this place is one of my favorites! My favorite dish is the paella- and it is huge so share it. I would definitely recommend this place if you are wanted some good, fast Mexican food.

The Midwest is not known for great Mexican. We have several Mexican restaurants in town. Two of which are owned by the same people, but there are differences. When La Fonda just opened, I thought it was horrible, but we have been going there more often. Two reasons, the drinks are good and the service normally good. We always order... More

This is a hidden gem in the Metro East of the St Louis area. And to date, of all the places I've lived, I've never enjoyed Mexican food as much as I did when I came to La Fonda. Start off with a plentiful supply of freshly made chips, with outstanding salsa to complement! The cheese dip is delicious. The... More

La Fonda was a good find. The service, food and drink were all above average. Prices are reasonable and atmosphere was very nice. Exceeded expectations for a strip mall location .

First came here for lunch years ago. Didn't expect much with the strip mall location. It is now where we go when we are craving Mexican food. Service is always great, food is always fast and hot & it is perfect no matter whether its family, business or date night.

Had a good dinner here tonight. Atmosphere is great and the food was good. The price was reasonable for a sit down restaurant. Seems like some of the food was canned or store bought. It all tasted pretty good though. The shrimp fajitas left something to be desired though. A bit fishy and made with tomatoes, not my favorite...

Is it fine Mexican dining? No. Is it good food, great prices and great staff? Absolutely. Also if you're in a pinch for time it is easy to get in and out of here even when they're busy (which is often). I've had several items on their menu and have never been disappointed. But I have to say they have... More
