Nothing much from the outside, but go on in!

Sketchy-looking neighborhood, but the parking lot was jammed, so we decided to give it a try. It was a good decision! Try an agua fresca if you're not drinking alcohol, the tamarindo flavor was fantastic. My sister-in-law had a "perfect margarita" and loved it. I live in Texas now, and no one... read more

We asked some college students where to go for Mexican food and they sent us to La Fonda. The place is crowded and obviously a local favorite. I had a combo plate-taco, enchilada, and tamale. All these items had lots of meat inside. The tamale was NOT a thick mass of masa which is atypical. My husband's shredded beef burrito... More

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.
