I've always like the food that Willie makes and have come here for years. I don't think I'll be going back after the last fiasco. We like to go in early at 5 when not many are there but even so the service is ALWAYS SLOOOOOW. 5 to 10 minutes just to get a beer. When they brought the wrong... More

I am never disapointed when we have our friends meet us at La Fondia. It is exciting to have them experience the food for the first time. Our friends from Texas were impressed with the food. The owner really cares about your visit to his restaurant, he will usually check on your table to sure you are happy. Sometimes he... More

We have been here a couple of times since moving here. (We were also here when visiting in 2015.) The food is very good, but the service is spotty. Two of the wait staff seem very friendly and responsive, while others seem to be just going through the motions. The "upgraded" margaritas are not necessarily worth the added dollars; the... More

I was really looking forward to eating here, I had heard that it was good. The waitress was outstanding, but our food took over an hour to make it to the table. When it arrived, it was rather bland. The chicken in my tostada was tasteless, the salsa was just hot sauce, the enchiladas were dry. Overall, a real let... More

My wife and I have been customers here for years. The food is very good (and authentic) the menu is varied and they have a great kids/seniors menu. It is in certainly one of the most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in Tacoma.

We hit this place now and then for happy hour. Had always been decent happy hour food and prices. Hadn't been in a while and stopped in last week. Happy hour menu has changed and definitely NOT for the better. We ordered pork nachos which were bland and dry. Horrible really. Service was okay, seems to be someone new in... More

When inviting friends and business people to lunch I ask if they like Mexican, and if they say YES, then it is LaFondita. NOT really big tables, but good for a group of 4. Parking leaves a bit to be desired as it is all ON STREET. But for the inconvenience of parking, the food and the atmosphere is worth... More

We have eaten here frequently. Right in the Proctor District with fun shops. Good service - very good margaritas. Is open for lunch on weekends at least. I recommend.

We love eating here. This is one of our "go to" restaurants. Solid Mexican food. I love the regular enchilada plate. Spouse loves the mole enchiladas. Margaritas are also very good. It gets crowded on Fridays and Saturdays, so come early.

La Fondita is a neighborhood disappointment. Mediocre Mexican food - whether you like a more American style or authentic. The decor & location are nice-casual, and would be great for meeting/dates if the food was better. When I eat American-style Mexican, my test dish is a Chimichanga. I'm looking for it to be crispy, well stuffed, hot and not overly... More
