This has been my favorite Mexican restaurant in Edwardsville since I moved here 6 years ago! It's so AUTHENTIC, there's a VARIETY, and it's very family friendly. The servers are very friendly and respectful as well!

Great food, prices, service and easy parking. A little on the busy side sometimes but we've never had to wait more than 5 minutes. The service is very fast and tasty food too. A little noisy at times. My hubby loves the fajitas.

This place was recommended to me by someone when I was traveling to Edwardsville on business. The place didn't disappoint. The food was good, the flavor was amazing and the service was on point. One of the hidden gems in Edwardsville, but make sure you have an appetite. The portions are quite large. Would definitely recommend this place to someone... More

Always love a good chimichunga...they have fresh chips and dip to keep you smiling until your meal arrives which doesn't take them long. Food is always great here

The Midwest is not known for great Mexican. We have several Mexican restaurants in town. Two of which are owned by the same people, but there are differences. When La Fonda just opened, I thought it was horrible, but we have been going there more often. Two reasons, the drinks are good and the service normally good. We always order... More

This restaurant is fantastic- real Mexican food. I am a huge fan of Mexican food and this place is one of my favorites! My favorite dish is the paella- and it is huge so share it. I would definitely recommend this place if you are wanted some good, fast Mexican food.
