My boyfriend and I absolutely LOVE Fonda!! We stop by at least twice a month. First off the vibe of the place is perfect.....laid back with a very friendly staff and sexy decor. The cocktails are out of this world. Try the house special frozen hibiscus margarita or my personal favorite the Pina with chipotle infused tequila!!!! The food is also to die for - very traditional Mexican with a cool modern flare. This place is not afraid of spice which is so nice since most places are conservative in the heat department. Also check out their brunch special Saturday and Sunday where you get a main dish and 1.5 hours of unlimited drinks (including margaritas!!!) Best brunch deal in the area especially when you consider the quality!

What a find, this restaurant was really lovely and the spicy guacamole is to die for.

All the dishes looked very tasty and there was so much choice.

The staff were very friendly and we had a fantastic meal, which was very good value.

I write this review strictly because I love there Happy Hour. It's the best deal in town. The margarita's are fantastic and the Happy Hour food is very good. The guacamole is really good. Stop by for happy hour, you will not be disappointed!

We stumbled upon this restaurant while walking down Avenue B and I'm glad that we stopped in. It was a Saturday afternoon and brunch was still in full swing. At brunch you can order anything a la carte or for $25 with unlimited drinks (including mimosas, frozen margaritas, bloody marys, beer, etc.). The drinks are legit (get the hibiscus margarita) and the food even more so. I'd say that it was the best Mexican that I've had on the East coast. We got the guacamole to start and I ordered the Huevos Rancheros on recommendation from the server (two sunny side up eggs over a corn tortilla and refried black beans covered with salsa ranchera, topped with crumbled chorizo, queso fresco and crema)... amazing. The service was attentive as well.
