Even though it was Christmas, we were looking for a traditional turkey dinner and found Fonda Americana. The food was great and the service was good. It's a nice change from traditional style Mexican. If you are looking for a well trained chef who can provide a great meal, this is the place to try.

We frequent Puerto Morelos/La Colonia about 8 times a year. We are very familiar with all types of restaurants. Small or large. Catering to either locals or tourists. In March we ate at Fonda. It was a delicious experience. And the hospitality of the owner, who resided in New York for many years, was observant of quality and presentation. Since March, they have lost the head Chef and the owner was not around. The Fondu was scorched and awful. It was a typical Mexican String cheese and not the usual Swiss-French Imported Cheese mix it once had. Veggies all over cooked. And the signature Mac N' Cheese was only edible for hogs. My two dinner partners both agreed, this restaurant should have closed for low season, rather than trying to stay open and server mediocre garbage. This restaurant will inevitably fail, and soon. Especially give the atrocious nightmare of dinners they are serving currently. Fonda American FAIL.

Whether or not you live here or are just on a vacation, this is a must to try! My husband and I live close by and have now had a chance to try everything on the menu! My husbands favorite are the hamburgers, while mine is the roast chicken, although we have tried everything and give it all a 10 out of 10. Their spinach and artichoke dip is AMAZING as well as their chicken wings as appetizers.
The service is top notch as well and we appreciate that the chef/owner comes out and makes sure everything was ok and thanks us...
Another thing I like about the menu is that it will accomodate any special holidays, for example, mothers day, st. Patricks day, Valentines Day, Super Bowl, etc and will have a special menu in place for holidays/events.
The only thing I recommend is to wear long pants or wear bug spray if you sit outside, but most of you will know to do this if you are from the area. ;)
As I read in another post, this place is off the beaten path and definitely not where you would expect a classier restaurant. Just a short taxi ride from PoMo, $25 peso charge.
If you are ever in the area, I recommend Fonda Americana Grill.

Off the beaten path, what seems to be a family owned business, a quaint little burger joint recently opened, very nice, clean air conditioned restaurant! Service was very professional! They worked hard to earn this excellent review! Burgers were some of the best we've ever had, ceasar salad was crisp and yummy! Nice atmosphere. The only negative thing I can even come up with is the ketchup is left out exposed to the sun and gets hot (not sure if heat damages ketchup), but when we asked for cold ketchup they quickly delivered!! The price is CHEAP considering the quality of service and food! Would recommend to everyone!!!
