This is not your ordinary Mexican restaurant. It is by far the highest quality in the City. It's pretty much what you'd expect if you went to a top flight place in Mexico. I had the pork pibil which was one of the best I have ever had. My beautiful wife had a fantastic beef dish, that she finished, and... More

My wife and I are regular, a little less often than once a month, visitors to this wonderful restaurant. Last night had dinner, sitting at a couch in the bar area, with my wife. Beautiful restaurant, particularly the bar area, with increasingly wonderful atmosphere as it gets dark outside and darker inside. Romantic, cozy, and comfortable. In addition to tasty... More

We've been to Fonda since it opened back when Austin was missing all the trendy stuff and the Mexican food everywhere else was typical TexMex fare. We dine here every time we are in town and use their recipes frequently (last night we made tortilla soup). We were completely happy once again. While there hasn't been much menu innovation over...

Located on North Loop near Burnet road this family business has been making high quality Mexican food for over 30 years. They accep reservations. Plates are large, you may wish to split along with a couple apetizers.

it's a little pricey but well worth it if you are hungry! A huge brunch display of everything you could imagine from central Mexico cuisine.

My wife and I went for a special New Year's Eve dinner. Was disappointed with the menu. My wife ordered the special stuffed poblano pepper and I had the chicken fajitas. The pepper was smothered in a sweet sauce which I didn't care for. My fajitas were below average. The decor and service were excellent.

Had dinner with family including some hard core New Yorkers early Saturday the 13th. Was met by two lovely hostesses who led us to a table immediately. Our waiter, Shane, took drink orders and explained specials while we sipped our drinks. I chose one of their specials, Chile en Nogada.

Best experience in a long time. Beautiful setting and food was outstanding! Our server was very knowledgable and the way Patricia spoke of the dishes was almost spell binding! They train their staff on their dishes and it was the best dinner in a long time! Go soon and you will not be disappointed. Parking a sight problem due to... More

This restaurant has exceptional food across the board. The service and attention given by the wait staff was very good. The wine list was good as well. The overall experience was something we look forward to experience again and again.
