COOKING WITH PASSION SINCE 1975

Fonda San Miguel is a celebration of distinctive cuisine, colorful history and the transformative influence on Mexican restaurants across the country.

A venerable restaurant, Fonda San Miguel has garnered national and international acclaim, and continues to stay true to Mexico’s great traditions and share the fundamentals of Mexican cuisine through its authentic flavors and ties to Mexico’s ever-changing food culture.

“They opened Fonda San Miguel in 1975, gradually converting the space into a replica of a colonial-era hacienda, filled with artifacts, original artwork and blooming plants. Their timing was auspicious, coinciding with a period of culinary exploration. Fonda remains the grande dame of interior Mexican cuisine in Texas.”
