Went here with a group yesterday and Flagstaff is a popular tourist destination, but the crowd here looked like locals---which was fine for me. This is a good local, Mexican restaurant and it also has a very large seating capacity so you could pretty easily come with a large group although you might want to make sure the timing of... More

We were here last year, and it is a favourite of our young friends. The place is noisy and crowded and no reception area. However the food is good and there are large servings. Difficult for the staff to be attentive because it was a full house. My margarita was salt rimmed even though I asked for sugar. I am... More

The food here is fairly standard but it is good and the prices are right. It's very popular with locals so it's often crowded. If you like lighter fare that there are other places in town that you might prefer. It does seem to be the popular spot with the citys Hispanic population. That's always a good sign for a... More

The food is nothing to write home about and their sauce is limited however the bar makes up it. They are a super busy place on Friday & Saturday nights. The hostess stand is worthless.

We went at a very busy time (Friday dinner time) but our wait was only about 45 minutes. Ordered our drinks while waiting to be seated. They were so good and so cheap we had seconds when we were seated. The service was quick and attentive. Our plates were full to the brim with some good authentic food! It wasn't... More

We eat at La Fondas when ever we can, when we are in Flagstaff for the day. Never a bad meal and always good service.

Huge portions of delicious food. Great touch having the sauce on the table for the chips so we didn't have to beg for more. The hostess gave us a wait of 20 minutes but it didn't take that long and would have been worth it. Sopapillas included!

Service was very good, food was served promptly and was hot and tasty. My house margarita was also very good. We really enjoyed our meals and we know what good Mexican food should be. Prices were very reasonable. The only criticism we had was that the sopapilla was sub-par; doughy, tough and under-cooked. But it was free with the meal,... More

My son and I were on a cross-country trip and dinner at this little restaurant will always be a highlight. This is the kind of place where I was introduced to Mexican food in Arizona 60 years ago; a little restaurant tucked away in a residential neighborhood. I had a combo plate of cheese enchilada, tamale, rice, beans, etc. My... More

Love the food and the service! The green chili is the best. If you like fajitas you will love the mix plate chicken and beef.
