Expensive Mexican, excellent taste

This Mexican food restaurant is delicious, if a bit pricey. I highly recommend the guacamole, which is super delicious.

Consistently excellent Mexican food. We order regularly from here and the food has been scrumptious most of the times. The soup is packed with flavors and is spicy. Love the chicken flats, cheesy and spicy. The chicken mole enchiladas are my favorite. They are slightly sweet but the spices from the chicken balances it all out. For the vegetarians the... More

I've never been disappointed in a meal here. They have a great happy hour too, and the service is attentive. Always a neighbourhood favourite. Their black beans are to die for!

Fonda has two locations, one in Brooklyn and one in the Lower East Side on Avenue B and 3 street. I have to say the Location in the city is my favorite. They have a very nice happy hour with delicious bar food and nice drinks. I am very peculiar when it comes to drink margaritas and theirs were very... More

We've eaten here a couple of times and the food is very good. The Guacamole is delicious, as are the black beans. Service is good. It's not cheap, but not overly expensive either.

Enjoyed this restaurant for the first time. If you want great Mexican food in Park Slope section of Brooklyn, wow - this is the place! Atmosphere is super nice, service is very quick and friendly and most importantly, the food is amazing. I went with the CARNE ASADA CON HONGOS Grilled marinated skirt steak with a sweet corn, mushroom sauce,... More

Even the tortillas are home made. Flautas are one of my favorite dirh from the happy hour menu ( wich is one of the best food... More

My family had been wanting to go to this restaurant for quite some time. It was a nice night so we sat on the outside patio. The setting was nice but the chairs were very uncomfortable. We were seated against the fence so it was hard to get in and out from the table. The guacamole was delicious but not... More

I've been to this restaurant now a few times, as some family lives in Brooklyn and it is one of their favorites. Every time, I've had an really wonderfully delicious meal. From the fresh-made guacamole, to the varieties of margaritas (happy hour prices available only at the bar seats, FYI!) to the entrees (both dinner and brunch, on past visits.)... More

Delicious meal in a cool little place. We shared a salad and a duck appetizer. Then we had the shrimp and scallops and the flank steak. Everything was 5 stars.
