We happened upon La Fonda totally by accident while looking for a good "Tex Mex" place, did we hit the jackpot. When we first pulled up we all thought about how expensive it would be just from the appearance of the entry, the inside was even more impressive. Expensive is not how I would describe our experience.
Our party decided outdoor dining was for us and where we were impressed by how well kept and clean the exterior had been earlier, the interior was absolutely beautiful. The deck was amazing,large and comfortable, there were even ceiling fans hanging from the limbs of the large oak tree. The staff was very attentive, cordial, and the service was excellent.
The menu offered a wide and varied selection, the food was outstanding, per person including drinks and desert, ran us about $30.00 per person.
It turns out that La Fonda has been in continuous operational since 1931, and you can tell the entire staff works with pride. If you are ever in the San Antonio area, do yourself a favor and bypass downtown for at least one meal and try La Fonda the experience will be worth it.
