Support La Fonda El Taquito

La Fonda El Taquito was started in a small space in the Westside back in 1979 and has been a staple of Kansas City's restaurant scene ever since.  Like many other small businesses, we have had to face unimaginable challenges with more uncertain times ahead during this national health crisis. During this time of uncertainty, many of our guests, friends and neighbors have asked what they can do to help financially support our restaurant as we are trying not to make the difficult decision of laying off our staff to the pandemic that has drastically impacted our industry. We are beyond appreciative and blown away by the outpouring of love and support of our customers as we have cut down our hours of operation.

Donations to this page will help our employees during this difficult time and help us to continue to operate under shorter hours of operation. Please consider donating to our GoFundMe page.

We will get through this together and we look forward to welcoming you back in our restaurant soon.

With gratitude and appreciation,

Maria Chaurand Medina and Sandy Medina
