About Us

Voted Best Mexican Restaurant by the Readers of the Phoenix New Times.

"Scottsdale is mostly known in the food scene for its upscale restaurants that specialize in just about every type of global cuisine. What can be hard to find is an old-fashioned, down-to-earth Mexican joint where the food is good and cheap. Lucky for us, La Fonda Del Sol, located on the corner of Scottsdale Road and Shea Boulevard, offers the best of both worlds. There you’ll find simple selections like chicken enchiladas and cheese crisps served alongside shrimp fajitas. And to go with it all, there’s an unlimited supply of fresh salsas and guacamole served with excellent tortilla chips. The interior is casual and won’t provide the Old Town flair of places like Barrio Queen, but you’ll get out of there just as full with a much happier wallet."

Fresh. Authentic. Delicious.

Our Grandmother Toni founded La Fonda Del Sol 30 years ago and one thing that she made sure never changed is our authentic Sonoran Mexican recipes! If you had eaten here 20 years ago and then came back today it would all taste the exact same. Chefs Armando and Oscar have been with us for over 25 years and truly take a passion in making this food. La Fonda Del Sol has always been known for using only the freshest possible ingredients to ensure top quality Authentic Sonoran Mexican food.

I grew up in Phoenix, but have since moved away and La Fonda Del Sol is always one of the first places on my list to hit up when I am back in town! This place is one of the best casual Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. I have both dined in and gotten take out and service has always been spot on. Requests are always followed impeccably and my take out orders are always correct. On to the food... I have ordered the veggie fajitas on every visit and they are absolutely delicious.

Where do I start?! My fiancé and I were looking for some casual and tasty Mexican food and stumbled upon this gem. We live 5 minutes away and never realized it was here! The food was amazing. I ordered the steak fajita - the steak was super tender and flavorful. Delicious! My fiancé ordered the cheese enchiladas and said they were one of the best he's ever had. We also ordered the classic margaritas which were, surprise surprise, delicious.
