Although it’s definitively in Arizona and the Southwest, Flagstaff has never boasted much in the way of regional—and especially Mexican—cuisine. A noteworthy exception is La Fonda, opened in 1958 in the city’s nondescript Sunnyside neighborhood; it’s easily the equal of just about anything Tucson or Phoenix has to offer. The García family’s offerings are muy aútentico, right down to the menudo, or cow tripe stew, on the breakfast menu. If you’re not fond of innards, you’ll find plenty of other choices, including chicken enchiladas made with blue-corn tamales and mouth- (and eye-) watering green chile.
