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!

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.

Since I was a Kid

I've been going here since 1946 and still enjoy the ambiance, the good food, great service, and wonderful memories.
