Nice place with great steak! Check the menu as some prices are for four people lol great private play area for children so they don't bother other patrons. Prices are very reasonable and friendly staff

For a change from Mexican food, my family decided to check out Fonda Argentina based on decent reviews. The steak and sides were delicious. I ordered the 800 gram Ribeye steak, which for my americano friends translates to 28 ounces, which is massive! Served simply on a wood cutting board, it reminded me of how meat is done in Argentina,... More

We stopped for a good steak and got a VERY good steak! I love lots of beef,but the large hanger steak was enough for two with some left over. Wonderful food at a very fair price. Location is not great but the food and the friendly service make a stop well Worth the stop.

Fonda is on our list of "Places to Eat" when we feel like eating meat but we don't want to do the "tourist thing". Fondo is more of a local restaurant for good meat due to it's location which is on the Federal Highway, away from the tourist zone. I can recommend the Queso Fundido and also the skirt steak....

I took my wife here the last night we were in Mexico. The food is absolutely amazing. Our total bill was something in the neighborhood of $20USD, and had we ordered the same in the US, it would have easily been triple that.
