Georgetown is a neighborhood you don’t just “end up” in, but once you’re in this area, Fonda La Catrina isn’t a bad choice for eating and/or drinking. It’s a cool taco spot that fits in well with its eternally-industrial Georgetown surroundings, and we like it best when we can take advantage of their summer patio with twinkly lights, flights of tequila, and tacos (specifically the alambre with beef and bacon, and the chorizo with avocado). If you’re just going the margarita and snacking route, the queso is also great. That being said, the entrees are kind of a crap shoot - we’ve had pretty good carne asada here, but also shrimp that’s covered in spice and nothing else (so prepare for your mouth to lose all feeling). Fonda claims not to take reservations, but try calling - we’ve done a party of 10 before on a busy Thursday night, and would definitely have ended up taco-less if we didn’t call ahead.
