Great food without all the fancy

If you are looking for decor or atmosphere, this isn't the place for you. If you want great food at reasonable prices with great service, you found the place to go! This place is always packed with locals. It is the best Flagstaff has to offer when you want Mexican food.

La Fonda is out on the east side of town, which might be a bummer, but it's worth it! Sometimes there's a long wait, but that's to be expected from excellent Mexican food on a weekend! The food and service are always great.

I am always happy with La Fonda food. My plate of choice is a green burrito, beef taco, rice and beans. The price is better at lunch. In fact, this combo is not a standard offer on the dinner menu. I will gripe just a tad about my last visit. We were a party of six. Three of us arrived... More

Delicious food, exceptional & friendly staff & a very casual atmosphere. Have never been dissatisfied with the food or the service. It's always crowded, so be prepared for a wait but it's worth it., Enjoy their $2.00 margaritas on Saturday nights.

The food I rate 4 stars but the restaurant itself is 2 at best. The food: got a green chili burro enchilada style and it was fantastic. Everyone else's food was also very good. The La Fonda burro is humongous! The salsa isn't a chunky kind but really tasty. Best of all, the house margaritas are amazing! And I've tried... More

Found out about this restaurant on the internet. We went on Saturday at around 4:30 and it was packed. We did not end up waiting long. The food was fantastic. We will definitely be back.

Hidden in a residential neighborhood off of Route 66, La Fonda Mexican Restaurant is one of Flagstaff's real gems. For over 30+ years these folks have been serving great food at reasonable prices. Look around and there are local folks and their families everywhere in the restaurant. And for good reason: REAL traditional Mexican food, friendly servers and fun atmosphere.... More

One may not think of Flagstaff AZ as a place to get great Mexican, but thing again. La Fonda is a Flagstaff institution, and for good reason...the food is that good! Pros - Predictable food with traditional trappings for a Mexican restaurant in the southwest. Fantastic fried ice-cream. Cons - In kind of a seedy area of town and not... More

Just plain old good food. On a diet? Stay home because this place is no joke. Large greasy portions and a packed dining room, just good food.

I love this restaurant. I have been going here for years and have never had a bad experience. The staff is usually very friendly and the food is out of this world awesome! They are a very popular mexican food destination so a lot of the time there is a wait for tables even for just two people. But in... More
