very casual place, decent food & prices

This is a tiny and extremely casual, more-than-Mexican restaurant with good food and very friendly service. The menu was simple but offered a good deal of variety of Mexican staples and even (Spanish) paella and some Cuban sandwiches. There are a few vegetarian options but I don't remember seeing... read more

I've had food at this La Fonda Location 1-5 times each month since 2003. The food is wholesome, nutritious, tasty and FAST. Even when the service is slow because the place is packed, the amazing men and women at this location are FAST! The times I have visited other locations, I've been left disappointed, but not with the Moreland location.... More

We eat here at least twice a month. I always get the black bean quesadilla, my husband always gets the pork chops, and my daughter the kid's steak quesadilla. Cheese dip for the chips, frozen margaritas. Perfection every time.

I love the salsa and chicken tacos. The salads are also fantastic but not well known. This is a great place to relax and have a margarita with friends or take the family. It's not fancy just good food with a good atmosphere. They also have some tasty vegetarian options.

This place has a simple menu and consistently tasty food. Atmosphere is casual, and the staff is always super nice and helpful. Unlike some places these days, you still get free chips and salsa which is a nice touch. Some of my favorite recommendations: Any of the salads (Andes, Mango, Pescado) Guacamole (nice big chunks of avocado) Quesadillas Fish Tacos... More

Great Mexican place in the Candler Park area. Love it when the patio is open on those sunny days. Food is always excellent.

A couple of friends of mine took me to La Fonda Latina in the Candler Park neighborhood. If you've never been to this area it's a pretty cool setting with beautiful homes and a family vibe to it. I had the chorizo sandwich and it was amazing. I also tried some paella which was very good. I will return one... More

Great place to go for interesting cuban food. I love the veggie bocadillos, the veggie paella and the maduros. Multiple locations.
