The food is good and fresh. The menu is long and interesting with daily specials. The seating is outdoors and very festive. The pork tacos had a nice touch of pineapple but the meat was a little tough. I would have liked it better had the meat been shredded. The wait was a little long because of all the call-in... More

We are obsessed with this place. Great prices, great Mexican food, and fresh salsas. Daily specials, cheap desserts, beer and wine.

Great Food; very funky outdoor space. Free WiFi. Beers. Perfect after the beach. Totally fine to stay and hit the picnic tables or take-away. If you phone-in your order you can by-pass the long order-line and go straight to pick-up. And be sure to grab self-serve sauces to complement your meal. Very nice staff.

I got the chicken plate, my husband got the steak plate and my son got the chicken quesadilla. Good food, nothing too amazing but good. The cashier was beyond rude and attitudey

An interesting alternative. Location is perfect for those around EA, with easy parking. Buying your food/seating area: really Practical and nature/outdoor setting. Ordering: You must grab a menu, select your choice of food and drinks. While waiting ouside in a comfy park-like table, you will need to open your coke /beer inside the restaurant. You wait until you hear you... More

We went here for Lunch and Dinner while in the Hamptons. Both times were had the tacos and the nachos. The tacos were great. Really good amount of meat! The nachos were good, but it depends what you are going there for. If you are wanting the nachos you are used to in American restaurants this is not the place... More

My husband and I stopped here on out way to our condo. The building itself was tiny with limited seating inside but lots of outdoor seating. The tacos were delicious! Chips were a little greasy but tasty.

Blink and you might miss it. Or you might see the queue from the Montauk highway. Stop. Join that queue. Order a drink. Check out the tacos. You'll find plenty of good reasonably priced Mexican food. You'll be jamming elbows with New York's pushiest in the garden as you try to grab a table but it always works. It's casual... More

We pass through Amagansett once or twice a year on our way to Montauk and sometimes we are lucky and La Fondita is open. We got lucky this week! The food is fresh, simple, Mexican "fast food" - one of my favorite things to eat. They rate high in my book because they make their own tortillas and chips each... More

Was surprised by all the hype about this hole-in-the-wall Mexican spot. The menu is a la carts with bite size portions (at least the tacos were tiny). While the items only cost $3-5 you'd have to but 4 or 5 before you'd start to feel full!
