I was disappointed in some of the quality of the food I ordered, which was the La Fonda #1 plate. The cheese in the enchilada was one big unmelted brick and the tamale was dry and not well seasoned. When I tried cutting the enchilada, it was not soft as one would expect. The guacamole salad was acceptable and the carne guisada was good as well as the corn tortillas. But, when I mentioned the problem to the staff, they were already aware of the cheese clumping problem but hoped I would return. I found that unacceptable.
I just LOVE this restaurant! They have some of the best Mexican food and watch out for their margaritas!!!! Great atmosphere and some of the best wait staff to include...Rosie, Janie, Virginia, and Richard, just to name a few. If you have never been here....you must go!!!!!

Our family used La Fonda to cater a very special party celibrating our daughters wedding. I can not overstate how great they did. The food was outstanding and very reasonable, but what sets them above everyone else was the service. The staff was extremely proffesional and courteous. I would highly reccomend them to anyone who is considering catering a Mexican Fiesta. Thanks again to Mr. Berry and Magnum for a perfect party.

This is the Mexican Food you remember. Classic Tex Mex in a nice festive setting with professional wait staff in colorful uniforms. They bring out freshly made chips & hot sauce, freshly made as in THEY make it! Excellent Hot Sauce. Here the basic dishes are as good if not better than the fancy dishes which are also quite good. Prices are VERY reasonable, you can feast for $8.00. Their little guacamole salad with the little bit of hot sauce on top is a do not miss.... a classic all by itself. This place has perfected the cheese enchalada, crispy taco and chile gravy. They serve real cheddar cheese in their recipes and you can taste the difference! It is one of my top 5 spots in the City to have a margarita, an important thing since all margaritas are not created equal! Oh, and whatever you do in life, make very certain you go for the Mango Ice Cream at La Fonda Oak Hills, for life is short and it is excellent. And, oh yes, you can have a romantic evening at this place.

BEST margaritas in town, but having been a loyal customer of La Fonda Oakhills for the past 9 years, I was sorely disappointed with the poor service I received on my last two visits. The manager seemed nonplussed when my concerned were brought to his attention.
To avoid the same disappointment, be sure to ask for seating in Richard's or Henry's sections from the get-go.
