Seems to be popular with the locals who have been coming here for years. the food was very average fare and the salsa with he chiop is nothing more than hot sauce in a squirt bottle. If you enjoy 45 minutewaits then this is the place for you if not you can do better elsewhere.

My wife and I had shredded beef burros topped with green chile our daughter had a shredded chicken burro topped with green chile all burros had plenty of meat and we were all pleasantly full and satisfied. We try and dine here when we are in town. La Fonda is one of our go to places in Flag.

Warning! This is one of those "hole in the wall" places we would never have found unless traveling with someone who grew up in Flagstaff. But we are SO glad we did! This is NOT fancy, but the food is good and the service is incredible! We happened in on "Taco Tuesday" and each taco was fabulous. The chips and... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant in Flagstaff and mostly patronized by locals since it is off the main streets. Lots of seating but it is busy most of the time. Very crowded on Taco Tuesday and Fridays since they have $2 margaritas and $2 Coronas on Friday but the lines move pretty well even on those days. Not a... More

Had dinner last night at La Fonda with my beautiful wife. Wife had the carna asada fries and it was delicious. I myself had the nightly special and it also was delicious. Service and everyone there are very pleasant and helpful. A must place for dinner.

Authentic atmosphere. Food was excellent-came to the table VERY quickly- and a great value for the money. Did not give it a 5 rating. It was very loud, too many TV screens in the dining area- keep them for the bar-, waiter was very nice and attentive but got several things wrong. Not a place to go if you want... More

For true authentic Mexican food, this is the place! Fresh ingredients, excellent salsa and hot sauce, and the food was served hot and fast! Bottomless chips and salsa and they didn't charge extra! They brought dessert, on the house, after the meal! Get there early!
