Good food for decent price.

For the money, this is one of the best Mexican food places in town. Decent size menu with plenty of good stuff. Taco Tuesday is also pretty fun but go during the summer or earlier in the day as it gets really crowded with college students during the school year. Also the staff is super friendly... read more

What is "authentic" Mexican food? Everyone seems to know it when they taste it. For my money, this place is the real deal. It is located near a trailer park. The decor is cheapo and seedy. Our server had full-sleeve tattoos. It was packed at 3:00 pm. We started with good, warm, fresh tortilla chips and terrible salsa. We asked... More

My favorite Mexican restaurant in town! Amazing food and the waiters are super friendly. I get the enchilada and beef taco and its amazing. And you get a free sopapea at the end, no matter what!

I enjoyed returning to this restaurant where I used to eat while in college in Flagstaff in the 70s. My vivid memory was the sopapillas served complimentary at the end of the meal. I enjoyed a delicious warm sopapilla with honey after my combination plate lunch. Family owned and managed. Located in neighborhood with parking available. Items my group ate... More

Well, on our 2nd night in Flagstaff we uncovered a treasure. The 1st night we went to one of the top 4 ranked TA restaurants but night 2 gets the review... La Fonda is ranked somewhere around #40 but I believe it will probably be my favorite meal of this whole trip and it was way cheaper than night 1.... More

I live across town and this place is always worth the drive. Always come here with friends and family, staff is friendly and always top on their game. Food is awesome, worth the price, and free homemade sopapillas after each meal!

Enjoyed the lunch red chili burro with rice and beans while my wife enjoyed the chicken chimi also with rice and beans. Chips and hot sauce were served to start and we also were treated to a sopapilla at the end of our meal. Food was served hot and fresh and was very tasty.
