We went at a very busy time (Friday dinner time) but our wait was only about 45 minutes. Ordered our drinks while waiting to be seated. They were so good and so cheap we had seconds when we were seated. The service was quick and attentive. Our plates were full to the brim with some good authentic food! It wasn't... More

We eat at La Fondas when ever we can, when we are in Flagstaff for the day. Never a bad meal and always good service.

Huge portions of delicious food. Great touch having the sauce on the table for the chips so we didn't have to beg for more. The hostess gave us a wait of 20 minutes but it didn't take that long and would have been worth it. Sopapillas included!

Service was very good, food was served promptly and was hot and tasty. My house margarita was also very good. We really enjoyed our meals and we know what good Mexican food should be. Prices were very reasonable. The only criticism we had was that the sopapilla was sub-par; doughy, tough and under-cooked. But it was free with the meal,... More

My son and I were on a cross-country trip and dinner at this little restaurant will always be a highlight. This is the kind of place where I was introduced to Mexican food in Arizona 60 years ago; a little restaurant tucked away in a residential neighborhood. I had a combo plate of cheese enchilada, tamale, rice, beans, etc. My... More

Love the food and the service! The green chili is the best. If you like fajitas you will love the mix plate chicken and beef.

I go to taco Tuesday EVERY week! Sometimes I've visited La Fonda three times in a week! Their food is served so quickly, it's always amazing and the service can't be beat. Their chips and salsa are so addictive. Plus they've backed off on charging for the chips. Still serving the community in spite of having to raise wages by... More

My boss and his family make up excuses to come to Flagstaff so they can stop here. We decided, this trip, to give it a try. Joel, our server (he needs a raise!) recommended the daily special, and he hit it just right. I struggled, but managed to finish a huge portion of really good food that was very reasonable.... More

This place has been my favorite for over 10 years! Locally owned and operated, they have the best menu and recently just remodeled. Go there early, there is always a line! That's good sign that the food is great if people are ok waiting extra time just to get in. Great for lunch or dinner!

Had a great lunch here last month. Truly delicious. And great service, as well as some guidelines on making the salsa!
