Good Food Great Service – I decided to try this place out one day with my girlfriend Rawan. I live in the Dominion so I really dont care to drive downtown for lunch but she twisted my arm. Well, I must say that to my surprise everything was absolutely delicious. The customer service was amazing! There is truly nothing that is more important than customer service to me. The outdoor patio was so beautiful. I'm not on that side of town often but I will be back. You guys keep up the great work!
Very good food. Beautiful outdoor patio. Good service.
Traditional favorite, average cuisine – I've patronized this SA landmark since the 70's. Located in a quaint stucco building in a quiet neighborhood that is easily accessible from downtown area, this restaurant is a favorite for locals and a real treat for tourists. The atmosphere and service recalls that old-time casual dining experience that has virtually disappeared from the restaurant scene now days. The patio area is a ideal spot to enjoy a margarita or a tall glass of sangria. Service is generally very good, but there have been occasions over the years when I felt a little neglected. Food is primarily traditional Tex Mex with a lean toward Southwest cuisine. I'd rate the quality on most dishes I've sampled as middle-of-the-road average in a town that boasts some of the best mexican food in Texas. My wife and grown daughter love this "cute" little place. As former restaurant owner, I have to point out that great food and decent service will sell regardless of the "atmospere", but the over-all experience at La Fonda should place it pretty high on your dining list the next time you're in SA.
girlfriend tradition – Each year my BFFs come here, drink spectacular margaritas on the patio, order the specials and celebrate our lives and loves in San Antonio. Wouldn't go anywhere else!
Great place – I'm not the biggest fan of mexican food, but I really liked this place. My favorite dish is the rainbow trout, thought I don't think you can go wrong with any of their other dishes. It has a great atmosphere, and the waiters are very professional. I love sitting outside in the back. THere's a beautiful little fountain. My coworkers and I would go there all the time for birthdays and other celebrations
Good food, good atmosphere – Great Mexican food and a great atmosphere, especially if it is a nice day and you can sit outside. Of course, the margaritas are excellent as well!
Wonderful Food and Service! – My wife and I ate lunch at La Fonda this weekend and it was an excellent experience. Our server, Maria, was very attentive and checked on us repeatedly. The food is not your standard Mexican food but is creative and delicious. We have eaten here one time before and enjoyed it very much then. I highly recommend it.
Good Experience – The food was good, yet the outside patio made the experience completely worth it. While being relaxed and casual, La Fonda still has a touch of class enough to suit the needs of any well dined individual. The location is convenient and parking was simple. I will definitely be back.
Colonial-style Mexican restaurant cooks up unique specialties. – The Scene
Open for longer than most locals have been alive, La Fonda on Main Street is an institution. But while the creaky floors and Monte Vista-in-its-prime building certainly feel old, the menu is as fresh and inventive as that of any recent upstart. A boldly spicy salsa and an entire page of margaritas start the evening perfectly.
Sure, it has the standard enchiladas, but to really get the flavor of La Fonda, you must try its more creative Mexican dishes. The filete norteno, for example, features a smoky tenderloin, crisp papas and a cheese enchilada draped in a spicy salsa roja. Or go for the roasted poblano relleno, a delectable vegetarian dish that comes with a spinach-and-cheese enchilada that's simultaneously rich and tart. After you end your meal with a creamy slice of tres leches, you'll have no doubt that La Fonda will last another 70 years.
