There are so many excellent restaurants in Lake Chelan, and we love highlighting our favorites. Fonda Oaxaqueña Lake Chelan is this week’s spotlight–but a fair warning: you might not want to read if you’re hungry!

About Fonda Oaxaqueña Lake Chelan

Fonda Oaxaqueña opened in 2013, and has been serving the Lake Chelan area ever since! The Olguin Sarabia family opened this restaurant with the goal to be different from the traditional Mexican restaurants in the area. Their focus is on homemade food that lets customers experience the food traditionally served in Oaxaca and other areas of Mexico. As Fonda Oaxaqueña’s popularity grows, their attention to detail does not change. Each dish is prepared with attention and care, and the service is also outstanding.


With a menu showcasing all of the best authentic, southern Mexican Oaxaca flavors, you’ll find plenty of dishes that will make you keep coming back! Here’s a few of our favorites:
