La Fonda serves both the best of Tex-Mex cuisine as well as authentic dishes of interior Mexico in a fun and casual setting with beautiful patio dining. Open daily serving lunch and dinner as well as a memorable Sunday brunch menu, we offer a full bar with a wide variety of liquor, beer and wine.

My wife wanted "real Mexican" during our recent trip, and the in-laws took us to La Fonda. The decor is attractive, with interesting art. The seating was comfortable--and quick. The "standard" chips and salsa was a great start-the chips were warm and not greasy, and the salsa was fresh and not too spicy. The menu had some great spins on the usual fare--my wife ordered sweet potato enchiladas, and they were superb. I had the "La Fonda" combination--chicken flautas that were flaky and tasty, a very cheesy enchilda with tasty sauce--done just right, and a traditional beef taco that was great. Plenty of add-ons--the guacamole was especially good. For dessert, we couldn't resist the orange flan--delicious. The service was attentive, friendly, and the wait staff covered for each other--very nice. We had a most delightful evening at La Fonda, and at a quiet reasonable price, too!

La Fonda is an historic icon in San Antonio, having been opened in the 1930s in the Monte Vista neighborhood. The menu is always being updated to reflect current food trends but remains true to its Mexican cuisine roots.
San Antonio natives know the consistent quality of both food and service. They also have a great meeting room for private parties.

Reviews for this place took me off the Riverwalk to make the short drive there. I was not disappointed! It is real Mexican without the heartburn. Wonderful chicken enchiladas with cream sauce were my favorite. The margaritas are the real deal - none of the mix junk. Eat on the wonderfully quaint patio.

For a more interior Mexico cuisine head over to La Fonda on Main- wonderful patio in good weather. Service is a bit spotty but the food more than makes up for it.
