Mariah was my server; she gave great attention to detail as well as a genunine welcome. The combination # 23 was great. She understandably laughed with me when I asked, "Is Burro Meat really what is in the Burrito?" Burro was just an abbreviation for...More

Eat at La Fonda every time I am in Flagstaff. The best Mexican food in Arizona. Can't go wrong. Love the chips and salsa too.

Being from San Diego I have big expectations when it comes to Mexican food. Menu did not include typical Mexican restaurant favorites such as chile verde, chile colorado, carnitas platter, carne asada platter, fish tacos etc. Lots of different burritos, enchiladas and such. House Margarita...More

Food is always good, prices continue to go up. They no longer charge you for the chips separately. Sometimes it is very busy and have to wait.. No Mexican in site or cooking, but food is good

I can say without hesitation that the bowl of red chile at La Fonda is the best I've ever had. It's so good I am completely unable to ever order anything else. I will warn you, however, if you don't like hot (spicy) food, stay...More

Excellent service and food; our waiter was very attentive without intruding, the busser was courteous and available, the portions of food were large, and the sopapillas served automatically were the perfect finishing touch!

I reviewed La Fonda in December 2017 when they just did away with their complimentary chips. I've been back since then and am glad to see that they are once again serving complimentary chips! It doesn't sound like a big deal but it is to...More
