Did lunch here recently. Menu has a good range of selections and prices are good. I had a bocadillo de bistek and my dining partner had the paella del mar. The chips and salsa were quite good and the service was a little slow but okay. The entrees were only fair. Neither the bocadillo nor the paella had a lot... More

There are several LaFondas in Atlanta and they are pretty consistent with their food.....which is very good. Always crowded when I've been there and it's a place where you can take children. Not fine dining and they don't purport to be...but good, tasty food for lunch or dinner. Price is reasonable. I'll go back next time I'm in Atlanta.

I have eaten at this and other LaFonda locations a number of times so I thought it might be useful to provide my feedback. First the food is tasty and consistent between locations and visits. After a long work day and a lack of desire to prepare a meal, we decided on LaFonda. It is not fast food but it... More

Moving from the west coast down to the south it's very rare that you can find a nice authentic Mexican food joint! I know good Mexican food when I eat it and this place isn't half bad. My co worker suggested this for lunch and I was a bit surprised on how well they turned out to be. The place... More

My barometer for a tasty Mexican restaurants is the flavor and texture of the salsa and the crispiness of the tortilla chips. If those two basics aren't on point, then I know I'm in trouble. Well, let me tell you, Lafonda gets 5 stars for both and their menu selections don't disappoint either. The Ponce de Leon Avenue location is... More

This is one of my favorite spots in Atlanta for a casual meal - I also think it's worth a visit if you are from out of town. First, I love the margaritas. I'm a lightweight drinker and I only need one - they are delicious. La Fonda's feels very authentic - for example, you can order stuff that is... More

a great latin restaurant that serves a wonderfull paella and arroz con pollo (amongst other things). the food is tasty and ample, if not super sized ! and very affordable too. my husband is a fan of their margarita and fresh salsa. add the patio ambience and you have a winner for summer afternoons and winter nights :)

Went here with some girlfriends last weekend and fell in love. I wasn't expecting to like it, but I did. Nice casual vibe and nice waitstaff. I ordered the beans and rice and maduros. The beans and rice were wonderful, but the maduros were burnt. The prices on the menu was really good and had nice serving sizes. My friends... More

This is pretty much average Mexican but the margaritas are delicious. The value is fine but this place gets pretty packed often.

Really good Latin fare. I like the warm Artichoke Dip which is served with large chunks of tender artichoke and flavored perfectly. Order the bowl-sized for sharing at the table. The sodas are served from an ice-cold can with a glass and straw. There is a large selection of Latin pressed sandwiches, Quesadillas, Paella, Mexican favorites, burritos, enchiladas, and tacos....
