“A pleasant place for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

La Fonda on Main is a nice place to eat. Their clientele tends to be a little older than average, although you'll see a few children here and there. 

The food is typical Tex-Mex, but very tasty nevertheless. Be sure to read the restaurant's history, on the back of the menu, to find out all the famous people who have eaten here. 

Service is very good. Then waitstaff are all well-trained and extremely courteous. They take good care of you at La Fonda on Main.

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Went here for a family dinner - food was excellent and served hot, service was very attentive and exceptional, atmosphere was friendly and inviting, pricing was very good. Not your standard Tex-Mex, but real, upscale mexican food. We had a wonderful time.

“Good Mexican Food - I loved the Cantaloupe Gazpacho!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We had some good Mexican food here and liked that it was away from the crowds and noise of central San Antonio : )
