I've been to Fonda many times over the years and was eager to check it out again after about 4 years lapse. While this is fine dining, it's low key and in a great atmosphere. Dfinitely not stuffy, so I'm labeling this as a mid-range...More

Enjoyed the visit to this upmarket Mexican restaurant in Austin. The margaritas were super and the beef was very tasty. I don't remember the dish's name I had but it was like a carne asado. Very good. Not cheap but very enjoyable

What an amazing meal. Enchiladas were great. The quest was fabulous. Staff was kind and very attentive. The location is a little out of the way but worth it.

Went on a Saturday night without reservations. Told there would be a 45 minute wait, but we could wait in the bar area. Found a delightful table in the bar, and told that we could get full menu service. Decided to eat in the bar....More

Other than a beautiful setting with hundreds of detailed Mexican artifacts and handicrafts, I found this place rather disappointing after hearing so many superlatives about it. Having eaten authentic Mexican food in many famous restaurants, this was just a lot of fuss and bother, catering...More

Before you go make reservations. Wait is required even with reservations so visit the bar and try a prickly pear margarita. Watch them make tortillia chips. Staff is knowledgeable about menu and food is delicious.
