Fiesta getting started!! Hope to see everyone today.

Thank-you to all of our great customers, friends and family that came out to celebrate with us this weekend.

50 years ago today my grandma opened La Fonda at our original location on Curry and Scottsdale Rd. It began as just a small little restaurant and expanded over the years. We moved locations 5 years ago to Baseline and McClintock. Starting at just being able to serve about 30 people 50 years ago to now about 200. I'm most proud of we are truly a family ran business today. My parents are working at the restaurant most days along with the employees. You can find my mom still sitting customers and chatting with them. My dad still in the kitchen making the salsa. My sister and I work right along with them everyday. Our customers know us and we know them. Thank-you so much for your business you have given us over the years. Mostly thank-you to my very missed grandma, Eloise for leaving behind something for her family to continue.❤❤❤
