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

An excellent value and a very good Mexican restaurant for kids. My 11-yr. old says, "I love this restaurant. I have ordered several different things and they have always been delicious. It is a great place to go by yourself, with friends, or with family. There are also lots of pretty things to look at."
