Thought we'd give it a try even though further drive from home.
The food we thought was average. The service was wonderful, she was very pleasant and helpful. The margaritas were above average. We didn't care for the style of chips they had.

My husband and I are Yuma residents and decided to try La Fonda on a whim. we have actually eaten there a couple of times this past summer. The food is tasty and filling. Some stand outs are the cheese crisp, enchiladas and the soft grilled chicken tacos.
The downsides are the prices are somewhat high for the area and the service. If you go in the middle or the morning or afternoon, service is good, however, try to avoid noon, because it seems that the staff become overwhelmed when there are too many people (forgotten salad, empty tea glasses ignored, incorrect order).
I still recommend the restaurant, but time it so you can get the attention you deserve.

This family owned Mexican restaurant offers a variety of delicious options in a pleasant atmosphere. Dining area is clean and colorful. Wait staff friendly, food very good and prices reasonable. Restaurant frequently by locals daily.

Wasn't in on the decision to go here. I love Mexican food so I didn't protest, but I wasn't particularly optimistic. Place was almost empty (got there a little after 7) so that didn't instill confidence and there weren't any Mexicans eating there. Sorry, but that's always part of my decision making process when choosing a Mexican restaurant.

So, the food. . .it was ok. The salsa (my other critical element on which to judge Mexican food) was. . .ok. Pretty good flavor, a little odd taste but good, but too thin.

So, like I said, it was ok. It rated about where I expected--right in the middle. I think it's 13 of 35. I think I'll try the other 12 ahead of it before I return.
