Fonda San Miguel

$$$$(512) 459-4121
Hours:TUESDAY5:00PM to 10:30PM

If you’re looking for an awesome dining experience that’s not outwardly trendy, and you don’t mind dropping money for it, Fonda San Miguel is the place. Since it’s located a bit north of the main Austin action, it’s a little off the beaten path and often overlooked, especially by younger people who are new to the city. While Fonda is often crowded, everyone here is in the know, and probably a local. The interior is also beautiful, and feels special—a great choice for a birthday or anniversary dinner.

Fonda San Miguel is truly in a class of its own. It’s pricey, yes, but always worth it. While you can find other interior Mexican cuisine in Austin, this is the place we always feel most awesome eating it.

Ancho Relleno San Miguel

This beautiful fried chili pepper is stuffed with chicken, almonds, and a cilantro cream sauce. Our favorite dish here.

Pollo En Mole Poblano

The classic chicken mole experience. This semi-sweet, savory chocolate sauce is a Mexican traditional delicacy used to cover tender meats. This quarter chicken brings the noise.
