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.

The atmosphere here is very good reminds me of a puerto rival vacation. The food is delicious I had the tostones and a quesadilla, which was fantastic. The staff is average an the food was prepared in a timely manner

ok, so the title is a quote from Napoleon Dynamite, but this place is DYNAMITE! is it a cuban restaurant with mexican food? or a mexican restaurant with cuban food? i can't tell because they do both so well! Good service, good prices, great food! what more do you want!? Try the cuban sandwich, and black beans!

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.
