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

Came recommended by a couple of locals - and I was very satisfied. Not "new" style of Mexican food - but more "old" style, diner style Mexican food - greasy, yes, but just the right amount of grease! Service was fast and efficient. Taco, enchilada and tamale were all good. Busy place, but they get folks through pretty fast. Prices... More

Good food at a reasonable price. I had a taco, enchilada and chile relleno.The shredded beef taco was in a fried tortilla, which is my preference. The cheese enchilada was tasty, but a little on the small size. The relleno was a little disappointing, because it was fried, not in batter, but in a simple scrambled egg mixture, not bad,... More

I have lived in Flagstaff all my life. In all that time, I can never understand the locals fascination with La Fonda. It is always packed full of people and for what? Bland Sonoran food served in a cheezy restaurant that could really use a deep cleaning. I love Mexican food. Give me Los Dos Molinos or Tee Pee in... More

I am well experienced with high quality Mexican food and this place holds its own. You will get good service. The place was packed with a significant wait. The margaritas were good. It is probably the best Mexican in Flagstaff with Kachina giving it good, close competition.

If you are a person who eats healthy then this would not be the place for you. You could taste the LARD in the refried beans. The resturant was packed wiht a lot of customers, it must be a home town favorite. There was a 35 minute wait to be seated which is surprising considering it is a small time.... More

I live in Flagstaff and this is by far the best Mexican food in town. My second choice would be Kachina restaurant. I believe the owners are related and so their food tastes similar. Their green chili is amazing at both places.
