La Fonda has been around a very long time. They have the best and most reasonable prices of Mexican food in town. Their "Taco Tuesday" with the happy hour Margaritas the most popular. I would say this is a must if you "love" Mexican food.

Always busy. The food and prices are decent. Nothing fancy but good food. The service is always quick and friendly. Definitely one of our favorites.

I love finding local places to eat where all the locals eat, and this was an exceptional find based on a recommendation from a family member. Since it was Taco Tuesday, the place was abuzz with students from NAU and we had to wait for a table about 35 minutes. The wait was so worth it!! The wait staff was... More

Outstanding Mexican food and margaritas. Family owned restaurant. Saturday night Happy Hour started 4:30pm. Plan to wait briefly for a table. But worth the wait. Food served hot and promptly Chili Rellenos were outstanding and house speciality. Prices modest

This place was packed when we went on a Friday night. The wait wasn't too long. The food was good - typical mexican fare with lots of options. Its not fancy inside or out, but was clean. I would go back.

I grew up in Flagstaff in the 70's-80's. Grew up eating at LA Fonda a couple times a month. With family still in the area, we still eat here when we come to visit. I don't think I've ever had a bad meal. Service is fast. Expect to wait during peak hours. Sopapillas are always a treat.

Lets start off saying this place is packed. Usually a good sign that the place has excellent food. Not the case here. The salsa (hot sauce) is on the table in a bottle, wasnt bad at all so that was a good start but the chips were stale. We ordered a green salad, which was piled high with cheese, tomatoes... More

Read the title, its the best. A friend recommended the place and we got there about 4:30 on a Friday and it was pretty busy already. There were 4 of us, two adults and two kids. All of us enjoyed our meals. Usual mexican food items you would expect but all freshly made and the sauces they have are fantastic.... More

We are in Flagstaff almost every weekend in the summer and pretty often in the winter. We love Mexican food. Always have, always will. We used to go to Salsa Brava and then, I heard about this place. To be honest, we passed by one night and I was afraid to go because it is not in the best neighborhood.... More

Food was fair but plentiful. Cheese enchiladas had velvet cheese but real cheddar was on top. Rice was not very good. Sopapillas were decent. Generous with chips and salsa. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was good although the tables were close together. Decent restaurant for the amount of food and price.

Thank barryscop
