La Fonda On Main

2415 N. Main, San Antonio, TX 78212

(210) 733-0621    Visit Website


La Fonda on Main, San Antonio's oldest Mexican restaurant, opened in 1932 and is Mexican hacienda dining at its best.  Cappy and Suzy Lawton bought it in 1997 and renovated La Fonda extensively, taking care to preserve all of the historic character.  Fun, casual and upscale, the lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch menus offer extensive selections of both traditional Tex-Mex cuisine and interior Mexico fare, including the La Fonda Special Plate, Carne Asada a la Tampiquena, Pescado a la Veracruzana, and the Oak-Fired Beef, Chicken and Shrimp Fajita Feast.  The full bar offers a wide array of margaritas made with freshly squeezed lime juice, Mexican-themed cocktails, well-priced wines and beer.  The beautiful tree-shaded courtyard and patio dining is popular with both locals and visitors to the city.  Private dining areas are available for small family gatherings and larger special events such as birthday and anniversary celebrations, weddings and receptions.  Reservations suggested.
