Dont Call In Your ORDER – I was ordering Christmas lunch for my employees. We chose Mexican. We chose La Fonda Latina. We chose wrong. Due to a misprint on their menu, the wrong location was called. We had to wait 20 minutes for our food to be delivered to the store we called (according to their menu). There is nothing more tasty than soggy, luke warm mexican dishes. The rice with chicken was horrible at best. We threw it away due to the foul flavor. The chicken was also under-cooked. Orders were all messed up. The presentation was absent. The garnishes were poor. The food not edible.
When the location was called they showed a total lack of concern.
We threw away 5 of the 9 dishes ordered. They took my money and left me hungry. 1 star for the rating is 10 stars too many.
This was really a disappointing experience.
Great cuban/mexican food! – My husband and I love this casual restaurant- they have great chips and salsa, and delicious cheese dip. It's the first place I think of when we go out for Mexican-ish food. The atmosphere is good, and this location is really cool- just off of Little 5. Highly recommended.
Best paella! – The paella was excellent. The prices are great and so is the atmosphere. Casual and relaxed, with great food!
Look for low-stakes, low-priced Latin-American fare at this colorful neighborhood cantina. – The Scene
La Fonda's four intown restaurants evoke a carnival mood with their brightly painted furniture and walls. Spanish tunes are suitably bouncy and loud, but you needn't shout to be heard. Service is almost always friendly, and dishes arrive quickly.
This reliable cantina serves toned-down American takes on popular Mexican, Latin American and Caribbean dishes. Don't miss the sopa de pollo, a bracing soup loaded with white-meat chicken, yellow rice and diced green onions, jalapenos and tomatoes. The arroz con pollo, a moist half-chicken spiked with paprika, comes nestled in yellow rice with onions and peppers. It pairs nicely with a side of smoky black beans. Fresh cilantro gives the fire-engine red salsa a nice kick, but the chunky guacamole is under-spiced. A sangria full of fresh chopped fruit far outshines the anemic margaritas.
nice place inside – I visited the one in L5P and my experience was a wonderful one. Nice cozy decor inside that lends itself to a Spanish garden, with a waterfall and pond in the middle. The paella (sp?) was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone. It consisted of shrimp, sausage, calamari, peppers, and rice served in an iron skillet right on your table. My friend had a huge tastey quesadilla with shrimp, spinach, and cheese. The fare is considered as Cuban/Caribbean and it is a great value for your money. Inexpensive, real good food, and a relaxing atmoshpere, what more can one ask for?
Comfortable – This resturant was a very nice place. Although only two employees speak english, you can still make a good time out of it. The dress is less than casual, so you can wear whatever, and still feel fine! i recommend this resturant to people who want something different than ordinary resturants.
