Description: Fonda Cholula is the best restaurant in town. If you want to get a full vision about Tequila you have to complete with the flavor of the agave on your meal. You can enjoy the colors and flavors of our mexican gastronomy, but overall you're going to taste the flavor of agave and penca in your meal. We use the best ingredients to get an awesome experience in your visit: Great service with our young waiters. Innovative, colorful and creative gastronomy made by our local cookers, refreshing drinks with a mixology touch! Come to visit us & enjoy the taste of the agave on your meal!

“Worthy tourist trap”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

This is auch a tourist restaurant that you will be hesitant to even go in, but if you don't, you'll be cheating yourself of an amazing meal!

The ranchero cheese appetizer is huge, what you don't eat right away you'll use as a garnish for the rest of your meal.

The Azteca soup is not too spicey, just the right amount of heat!

Variety if appetizers all came out perfectly seasoned and hearty portions.

If you're in Tequila, this is a must eat place!

“Great atmosphere and food.........”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

...........I was here on a busy Saturday and the bustling atmosphere was outstanding. Service was excellent, and explanations of the various dishes very accurate. Wandering mariachis and excellent tequila selections. So many plates to choose from. Can't go wrong here........

“Best salsa and Guac”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

They make fresh guacamole and salsa right at your table. I'm not a big guac fan, but I couldn't stop eating it. It was so fresh and tasty. I also had the beef taco's, which were excellent.

“Not as good as we remembered.”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We had eaten at this restaurant a few years ago and all was fantastic. We knew we would return if we returned to Tequila.
Here we are again, and we did in fact return to Cholula for dinner. It was a Saturday night and the plaza's were very busy but the restaurant was very slow. Should have been our first clue. The food was average at best with the corn soup on the bland and luke warm side. The rellano was great, the steak average and portions the same.
The service was the issue. We counted at least 15 servers, 1 bartender, 2 busboys, and 4 cooks for the 12 or so customers there. They were extremely slow and very unattentive. No atmosphere, with bad music and soccer games on tv. If they would have spent less time texting and more time with their guests, the tips would have been a lot better.
We will always return to Tequila, one of our favorite places is Mexico, but a return to this restaurant is highly unlikely.
