We often get take-out at LaFonda's and it is always fresh, tasty, and satisfying. They pay a lot of attention to getting the order right, and each entree includes plenty of food. Although I can't be certain, the refried beans seem they are from fresh beans, not dehydrated. All the ingredients are quality. No matter what time I drop in... More

She sent us to La Fonda and it was so good we returned with friends four nights later and they were as impressed as we were! The service was good, the food was... More

Locals love La Fonda! It was great to get back to real Mexican Food! The family owned business has been in Flag for as long as I can remember and the food is always the best! Save room for your sopapilla with honey!

I note quite a few people complaining in other reviews that this is not authentic Mexican food. I agree - it is Americanized BUT I DON'T CARE. We hit the Taco Tuesday truck frequently and take home carnitas tacos for the adults and ground beef tacos for the kids. Throw in some sides of beans and rice and you have... More

This quaint family restaurant has the food and prices one can enjoy. I just happened to go when it was closed for some work so struck out on 1st attempt. 2 days later was Taco Tuesday where tacos are 99 cents and drink specials available too. We did not feel like waiting 30 minutes for a table, even tho we... More

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
