Great food and nice atmosphere. Its a bit noisy, but a fun place if smallish. This is the home cooking place you always wanted.

Just ok, they are specially for lunch time always in a hurry for you to finish and leave the table for next guest, I didn’t feel comfortable, but good food. Nothing extraordinary, I prefer Guadalajara Grill.

Ok, say "Fonda Don Chon" three times as fast as you can! All Kidding aside, this is a real find! The food was amazing and the service was helpful! This is more of a "hole in the wall" Mom & Pop place. That isn't a...More
