Mexican
Located just a few minutes from downtown in architecturally rich Monte Vista neighborhood, La Fonda on Main is the oldest Mexican food restaurant in San Antonio. 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. We're open 7 days a week offering our full menu as well as family meals and catering options on curbside. Happy Hour is Monday-Thursday from 3pm-6pm. We offer a full bar with a wide variety of liquor, beer and wine. Saturday's and Sunday's we serve brunch from 10:00am-3:00pm. Our fabulous margaritas are made with hand-squeezed limes and your choice of a large selection of tequilas and mezcals. Our famous patio is heated from the ground up for chilly nights under the stars and lights in the trees.

    I have enjoyed La Fonda beginning when I was just 10 years old. I am now well past 70. The wait staff are professional and courteous; prices are commensurate with upscale restaurants. Every time our son comes to San Antonio, he insists we dine at La Fonda on Main Street.

    Our meal took a long time to arrive. We dined at 3:00, and the restaurant wasn't busy, in fact the staff was eating their meal together. It was strange. La Fonda feels like a clubby place, with regular customers warmly welcomed--we are not and thus were not. As with some clubby restaurants, the food met a low standard, and we have had better versions of all our plates at other restaurants. For instance, the fajitas were greasy, the green enchiladas bitter, the tortillas not home-made. Disappointing.

    We enjoyed a lovely lunch in an outdoor courtyard . Food was excellent. Very unique menu for a Mexican food restaurant. Josh, our server, was outstanding!

    Our waiter was Josh. We were ther for lunch. The food was very good but the waiter was not attentive at all. We had to ask for everything even for the special of the day. Besides unattentive he really needs to polish up on his friendly skills. We asked the waiter for a container to go. He brought a small empty box with no tissue or bag. We asked the busboy for tissue. He brought us one tissue. Really? When I mentioned this to Josh; there ws no reaction much less an apology. I hope we get a live waiter next time we go.

    Service was seriously poor. Tony seemed lost and disengaged. Two hour unnecessary birthday lunch.

    La Fonda's kitchen is excellent again, a delight to eat there. The bar is such a disappointment though; the house margarita on the rocks, which used to be rated by many as the best in town, was undrinkable. The bar girl was uncertain if the lime juice was fresh, and it sure wasn't. It's particularly annoying that the first thing you have is so sad, but priced like a first-class drink. Please teach the bartenders to cut a lime and make a real drink. A good bartender can make well liquor taste great.
