Restaurant: La Fonda Latina

Hello everyone! My friend recommended that we go to a La Fonda Latina near his house two Fridays ago and I agreed right away because Mexican food always sounds good to me. We went to the one located on Ponce De Leon Avenue and I personally like this restaurant more than the one on Peacthree Rd (since the Peachtree one is very narrow and small). I also recommend the La Fonda located on Howell Mill because there is a lot of parking available and a nice staff!
We went on a Friday night and there was about a 20 minute wait. I would not suggest going with a large group over 4 people though because they mainly have small tables. The waiters were all friendly and the service time was good here though. Also, free chips and salsa are served here!
Mentioned below are the menu items we tried out!

Artichoke Dip: $3.50 for a cup, $5.75 for a bowl: A creamy dip of chopped artichokes, olives, pimentos and garlic, served warm. This dip was delicious but I would only recommend it to you if you like artichokes because that is the main flavor that came through! I was also surprised this was a warm dip but nonetheless was great!

Two Chicken Enchiladas: $8.95: This dish includes “white corn tortillas filled with seasoned chicken cooked in tomatoes and onions and topped with a chipotle ancho chili pepper tomato sauce, cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, queso blanco and cilantro”. I would easily to back and get these enchiladas again. They were so delicious and filling. I loved the chipotle tomato sauce and thought all the ingredients blended well together.

Bocadillo Latino: $9.95: A cuban sandwich with Roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, mustard, mayonnaise, mojo sauce and pickles on Cuban bread- served with yellow rice and black beans. This is a really great sandwich! I wish the taste of the mustard and pickles came through more but nonetheless it is tasty!

My friend’s favorite thing to get at La Fonda is the Strawberry Margaritas. He says that it is the best margarita he has had at any restaurant. I definitely have to agree.. it was delicious.
I ordered the House Margarita and really enjoyed it as well. It was not as sweet as the strawberry one but if you like lime, then you’ll like the house one.
My friend Morgan ordered a drink at La Fonda which I can’t find the name for but basically it was a beer with a scoop of a margarita on top! She liked it alot!
View from the back of the restaurant. There is more seating in the front and up the stairs.

I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong with anything at La Fonda. I could eat here repetitively and probably not get sick of it. Definitely try it out if you’re looking for a Mexican restaurant to try out!
