Reviewed 10 November 2013

Don't worry if there is a line out the door - the food is worth it and the service is quick! Everything is good, but try the tomatillos for a real treat.

“Pleasantly surprised.”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

With the mixed reviews, I was unsure of what to expect. The service was over the top fantastic, with the server taking the time to recommend not just the most popular dishes, but his personal favorites. Food is pretty straight forward, typical Mexican restaurant. Also enjoyed the margaritas!

“A great Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

I liked this place. The food and service was good. My biggest complaint is their "mild" salsa was too hot. I liked the atmosphere as well. I would go there again the next time I'm in Flagstaff.

Hostess was the best thing about today visit! Waitress was horrible! Marcy needs a refresher on serving! I am a big tipper and had a hard time leaving 2$!
Fajitas were gross! Not my favorite place anymore!!! There is to many restaurants here in flag!

“Hard to find little Gem....”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

La Fonda is hidden back in a neighborhood in East Flag, but worth the hunt. Appears to be family run, very efficient, and great Mexican Food. We always go early to avoid the lines. That right there tells you something. Nothing glamorous--very family oriented--and tasty, inexpensive food. If you go early, the Margarita's are very cheap, and served in a plastic cup. Service is fast and considerate. We never miss this place when we go thru' Flag---
