La Fonda is a locals' hangout; we had a 7pm reservation on Saturday night and there must have been a dozen or so folks (without reservations) waiting; when we finished our meal, the wait line had grown to 30+ people! After dinner, I fully understood why people would wait to get in. But the message---call beforehand and get a reservation... More

La Fonda-Oakhills is just off Fredericksburg Road,near the medical center in a modern-styled building that is classy, warm and welcoming. The menu is mostly Tex-Mex, but with just a bit of an upscale twist without being expensive.

We were guests of a local pastor for lunch. The service was prompt and not intrusive. But the food was amazing. I am not usually a lover of avocados but the appitizer was enough for a meal by itself. But I forced myself to have the main course. And it too was wonderful!

Food was good, service was okay (only three servers and a packed house). Price was a little high, but not excessively.

I used to enjoy this restaurant, and in fact, worked there for a while. It is beyond me that an restaurant located so close to the Gulf can serve frozen Tilapia and call it "fresh fish"..

Having grown up in San Antonio, I was exposed to quality Tex-Mex at an early age. I've had some pretty good, I've had some really awful. La Fonda has always been top notch. I've moved away from SA, but when we go back to visit we try to have at least one meal at La Fonda. My Mom & Pop... More
