In town with someone who had NEVER had a fish taco! A quick search showed Omaňas nearby and on the way to where we were going.The counter help was exceptionally patient with a gringo who was clearly out of her element.It took awhile but the tacos came out hot and tasty! The beans were authentic Mexican, the rice wasn't bad, and the salsa had great flavor a and a good kick. I guess the mark of a good eating experience is when you want to go back just for that dish. The fish tacos fall into that category,Good job, Omaňas. We'll stop in when next we're in town.

They're known for their chicken, hence the name. If you're ordering the chicken with sides, I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND the rice. It's not normal bland rice. It's soft with a hint of garlic. It's amazing!You can't go wrong with the chicken. I've had it a few times before and it's always VERY good, juicy..especially the dark meat. Make sure to also get the green sauces to dip it in (chimichurri - oil looking one with bits of parsley and aji sauce - creamy light green sauce). There's a red sauce also but I like the greens better. Also delicious is the tallarin verde con bistek. It's green spaghetti with steak and it's pretty good. I like to add the green sauces to it for extra deliciousness. If dining in, order at the register first then find a seat. If ordering for take out, highly recommend to call ahead: 626-331-8090Parking is easy. They're in a strip mall and there's plenty of parking. This restaurant is in the same plaza as Subway and across the street from Norms. Can't miss it.

I've reviewed restaurants all over the world, and wanted to show a little love to a local find for authentic Cuban food. Don't be put off by the rundown strip mall it's in, between a cell phone place and a barbershop, hidden behind a large building. The interior is charming, and the real reason to come is the FOOD. The only reason it's four stars instead of 5 is that the service is slow, but you can enjoy salsa music, admire the art on the walls or check out soccer on TV while you wait. We came for lunch on a Saturday and every booth was filled. My husband had a Media Noche sandwich plate and I had the Camarones Enchilados -- fresh, huge shrimp and vegetables in a yummy wine sauce, with black beans, rice and plantains. You see the chef cooking in the open kitchen and he thanked us for coming with a big smile as he worked over the stove. The menu says "beer and wine coming soon" and then there will be a line out the door, so do yourself a favor and discover it now. Just don't come if you're in a hurry. The food is worth waiting for.

We came here because we were staying nearby and wanted some good, authentic Mexican food. We were not disappointed and soon learned that this restaurant has actually been around for decades, originally located by the Eastland shopping center. Service started off slow but was quite friendly and helpful. The menu is very extensive. Portions are large and very tasty. Drinks are good too! Towards the end, a large party arrived so things got noisy and service slowed but overall we had a very nice experience. We would definitely come here again.

Three of us had dinner here. The food was pretty good, not exceptional. The space was nice and I liked the casual atmosphere. The chips and salsa were better than most. Prices of food were reasonable. I thought drinks were a little high. Service was good.

Fonda Don Chon Restaurant

Reviewed By bobbyzapata

I’ve been going to Fonda’s since they opened. My grandparents love this place. My girlfriends parents love this place. I love this place! The first thing I tried here was their Birria with some corn tortillas. Nice juicy tender meat that falls apart without difficulty. I occasionally stop by for their brunch but for the past 2 years I’ve been getting the carne asada molcajete with a side of rice and beans and corn tortillas. The molcajete comes with nopales (cactus), queso (cheese), jalapeños (you know.. that spicy chili), avocado, and carne asada (flank steak) all inside of a tomato based sauce. It comes with enough food for 2 people and it costs about $20 so it’s perfect for a small couples trip. If you’re ever in the San Gabriel valley or feel like tasting some good Mexican food then you need to make a trip to Fonda’s!
