    Overpacked and overpriced for the quality. Took us 20 minutes to get our reserved seats, which were at a table crammed into a corner in the backyard behind a 10+ birthday party so the server could barely get to us. Music was so loud inside, but no music at all outside so you could hear every single other conversation in the backyard, which was worsened by the fact everyone is sitting on top of each other. Food took nearly an hour to arrive, seemed like the kitchen was having a little trouble keeping up with the aforementioned overpacked crowd. Spicy guacamole and soft tortillas were really good to start, the mole for the chicken enchiladas was a delicious flavor, only knock on the food is the carnitas were slightly dry and chewy. Carnitas should have every bite bursting with moist, juicy, porky, tender flavor melting in your mouth. Still good, but disappointing for a $25 dish when I can get similar carnitas at a taco truck. Lastly, we ordered a reposado mezcal and the drink brought out was 100% blanco as in completely clear liquid and did not taste barrel-aged. When I brought this up to the server we were told we were wrong and ended up paying for the pricier reposado. Only when my girlfriend brought this up again to the waiter on our way out was he kind enough to offer us free shots of the reposado, which this time clearly looked and tasted barrel aged. Silly to write this all out, but it was a weird ordeal and overall not my favorite dining experience.

    It’s a lovely fall evening and Fonda always feels special - the way you’re being taken care of from the moment you enter it to the moment the food is served. Please have some guac with chicharrones - it is crackling when you put some guac on it and add that magic smoky sauce, guava juice and tacos - you will leave full and happy!

    We ate in the back garden - much quieter than inside, and it couldn't have been more perfect - our waiter was warm and kind and not too hover-y, the food was absolutely delicious, and the waiter brought a tequila shot/birthday "cake" with a candle for my husband... a lovely touch at the end (that we hadn;t asked for!) We will return.

    Although their menu generally doesn’t change (except for specials) the food, presentation and service are consistently good. Sat in the backyard- they had fans going to move the air around and it was very pleasant. This is the place you go when you want authentic Mexican cooking north of the boarder.

    The place is super small. The drinks and food was expensive and small servings. Couldn’t get a side of guac without ordering another appetizer. Food wasn’t that good. We both ordered fajitas and had to share a small serving of rice and beans. Never in my life. Bill was over 200 and the food wasn’t even worth it.

    I had high hopes for this place which I’ve been meaning to go to for years. We shared guacamole (medium heat) which was barely spicy but very good, though the portion was small for $16. My entree was solid- cod with a black bean sauce. Good but nothing spectacular. My boyfriend had a shrimp entree which was also good but could have been an appetizer, given the portion. My drink- their signature Rosalita, was very good. Overall, satisfying but nothing to write home about. It was also overpriced but that may have to do with inflation.

    Last minute dinner. Inside was super noisy so we chose to sit outside. Outside was very comfortable with the fans on for a nice breeze. Service was good. The portions of the meals was also good. Overall everything was nice. Would come back again.
