“Fonda San Miguel, adorned with abundant art pieces by emerging Mexican artists…an upscale Mexican tradition that’s as revered today as it was then.”


“The crepes, drizzled with caramel sauce and topped with homemade ice cream, are reason enough to go back.”

Dallas Observer

“No other restaurant in the United States has been more important in shaping the often nebulous definition of Mexican food.”


“A light breeze rustles palms and other exotic tropical foliage while young chefs clip fragrant sprigs of cilantro, mint, and epazote from the culinary garden. Welcome to Fonda San Miguel in Austin.”


“Fonda San Miguel continues to impress…with some of the city’s most famous enchiladas, as well as a dedication to hospitality and arespect for the sense of occasion.”


“Known for its mole, Acapulco-style ceviche, lavish Sunday brunch, and killer margaritas, Fonda San Miguel proves that Tex-Mex is not the “whole enchilada” when it comes toMexican food.”


Finally, Fonda San Miguel will reopen on Tuesday, June 23.

Many procedures and improvements will be in place to provide a very safe place to work and to dine. During this too long time, we have been renovating bathrooms, our kitchen, the bar and anything that will make the restaurant safer.

Fortunately, all of our staff were recipients of the Paycheck Protection Program for which we qualified early. That program has now run out. The FSM family is now expecting a successful reopening. 45 years of experience should result on an even better Fonda San Miguel.

With COA, State of Texas and our own guidelines in place, we will be doing the following:
At first, reservations will be required for the dining rooms. Walk-ins will be accommodated in the atrium and bar only. We urge you not to gather at the front door and the hostess stand. Everyone must wear a mask upon entering. We may take temperatures. We are definitely taking temperatures of our staff. When you are seated, then you may remove your mask. Our servers will wear face protections. You may not see their handsome and beautiful faces but we have a clever way for you to “see” who is serving you.

Although not a perfect world, there are some new “normals” that all of us will be learning. We will be following the most positive, safe, even fun approach to welcome and serve you once again. Getting out of our houses is going to be great for everyone.

Please give us your suggestions in any way to make your experience of beginning to return to normal a very positive one.

MIL GRACIAS and welcome back…
