Great parking, clean, great service, yummy fresh food, can accommodate large groups. Have been there countless times. Pork street tacos, el pollo mole poblano, beans, all very good. They also have Aguas frescass "cool waters"!!! If you have never had one, you must try them here. I have tried the cucumber, pineapple, horchata (cinnamon & rice milk) & hibiscus. I love them all the same! Family and large group friendly, very casual, but the food is top notch. This place has gotten a really good reputation now, so Friday and Saturday nights, come early.
I'm so glad I have full access to this jewel in my neighborhood. I was greeted by Russell(manager I think) who made me feel as though I was a celebrity when I walked in. He escorted me to the bar where Alex gave me a detailed history about where Bar Taco started (Connecticut) and he couldn't have been more nice. I was also greeted by Shawn, even though we never met it was if he knew me. I'm telling you, you won't find better service in midtown. Oh and btw, the food and drinks are great!
La Fonda has become our Friday night hangout with great margaritas, plentiful chips & salsa and above average food. I won't say it's the best but it's definitely a step or two above many of the order-by-number joints. I also like that you have several options beyond the typical Mexcian dishes, like Cuban sandwiches and paella. There's enough variety that it never gets old. My only complaint is that their sodas are warm cans with a cup of ice.
