La Fonda's long and colorful history began on Main Avenue in 1930 when resourceful sisters Virginia Berry and Nannie Randall opened a Mexican food-to-go shop. These two ladies supplied take-home ... Read more
Tex-Mex favorites to the neighborhood. In spite of the Great Depression, their little business prospered and an opportunity presented itself to purchase the house across the street at 2415 North Main Avenue. Converting this home to a full-service restaurant seemed a risk worth taking, and in 1932, La Fonda on Main formally opened.

One of the best Mexican restaurants in town. Outstanding margaritas and one of the most beautiful patios in San Antonio.

This former house turned restaurant is a popular location for Dinner. The ambiance in the back courtyard seating was very nice and the food was good but did not stand out to me. Both my wife and I got Enchiladas.

La Fonda is a long-time favorite Tex-Mex restaurant for San Antonio residents, as well as a popular spot to bring visitors to the city. If you can, eat outside where the courtyard, fountain, and beautiful plantings transport you to a lush little paradise. Everything on the menu is good, but their margaritas and guacamole are especially tasty. The Spinach, Mango, and Avocado Salad is incredibly refreshing. Prices are reasonable, and some menus items are downright bargains like their delicious Pozole or Chicken Tortilla Soup. There are plenty of menu options for vegetarians. Tip: on hot days, sit close to the fountain--the mist has amazing cooling properties. Or, if it's still a bit warm for your liking, go inside. The décor is tasteful and comfortable with bright and charming artwork. Oh, but pace yourself with the chips and salsa. They're addictive.

One of our favorite restaurants. Medium price. Delicious food. Great service. Dine outside on the patio and enjoy a margarita to get a true San Antonio flair.
