We love this place- so casual, and good clean food. Very small, so it's a quick turn place. Shrimp quesadilla is delish as is the chicken and avocado soup. The cuban sandwiches are a bit thick in the bread. Very kid friendly and sits next to Dr. Bombay's Underwater Tea Party for a little desert afterward.

I wish they would spice up their interior a little bit, maybe have some crazy lights and music. That would enhance the whole latino experience, but i like their paella a lot. I'm not too crazy about their chips and salsa though.

Even though this restaurant is small, it is a great place to take kids for lunch or dinner! They are always very friendly, the food is great and our daughter eats a much healthier kids meal than she would at most restaurants.

I have tried every LaFonda in Atlanta and the surrounding areas and the food at all locations is to die for! You can't go wrong with any dish selected and the salsa is so fresh and DELICIOUS.

La Fonda Latina has wonderful Mexican. I love their beans and rice and their quesidillas are delicious. All the food is great and the prices are very reasonable.

Yes, the restaurant, located in an apparently renovated garage/mechanic's shop, is a bit small. However, the warmth there a few weeks ago on a cold winter night was unbeatable. The Margaritas were great and my open-faced tacos were amazing. Definitely a step up from those "Speedy Gonzales" type Mexican joints!
I've never had a bad experiance here -- great cheaps and salsa, lots of food options, decent service and a laid-back atmosphere. The multiple locations within Atlanta make it especially convenient.
I honestly could eat here everyday, every meal. On the way home from work, I swing by - get my chips, salsa (to die for) and queso - and I'm totally content. Food shouldn't make you this happy, but somehow the thought of La Fonda always makes me smile!

I have them programmed into my cell phone to order take out on my way home. Unlike some places, the beans and rice actually have flavor. Fish tacos are my favorite.
