While La Fonda is best known for its Mexican fare, Friday's Dish of the Day highlights the restaurant's steakhouse origins. While La Fonda is best known for its Mexican fare, Friday's Dish of the Day highlights the restaurant's steakhouse origins. Made with fresh, never frozen steaks, the filet mignon is charbroiled to temperature and served with a tossed green salad, choice of potato (baked, fried or potatoes de La Fonda) or enchilada and flour tortillas. Our side dish preference is the enchilada, made with fresh spinach and Monterey cheese, and topped with a Monterey sauce made fresh daily. The steak is market price.
