The place has great ambiance and location, good food. There is a rooftop area for special events. Cholula brand salsas are already very good, don't miss the specialty house salsas (chile de árbol with peanuts, habanero chile with mangos). They prepare these and their guacamole on the spot and have microbrewery beers.

A great scam! Except for the spot, nothing is good. The food is tasteless, the cocktails are irrelevant.

The food was really nice. Although the waiter needs to learn how to smile to customers. Nevertheless the food and margaritas were really good.

I was there September 2015. Excellent food choices for very affordable prices. Friendly staff and good services mixed with Mariachi music. It is close to the Jose Cuervo factory/museum in the Tequila city center.

We got a card from the tour guide to go to this place and receive a complimentary Margarita. The place is located in the middle of the action in Tequila, right in front of Casa Jose Cuervo. We stayed in the outside table to enjoy the landscape. The service was very attentive. The menu has different options for all tastes... More

Initially, I didn't know that this place belonged to the hot sauce people (Cholula). All I knew was that it was a few feet away from the Jose Cuervo factory. The lines were very long because of it's proximity to Jose Cuervo. We waited a very long time, as a matter of fact, I was a little angry by the... More

We chose Cholula because of the reviews on Tripadvisor, but were sorely disappointed. The restaurant is right in front of the Cuervo distillery, and it seems that their business consists in scamming tourists who have just finished a distillery tour and are already tipsy. Some highlights: - It took a long time to get our dishes, despite it being late... More

The food and service here are fantastic. I worried in this prime location it would be a tourist trap. It's definitely not. The food was incredible; every part was delicious and the service was great. I ordered steak which was cooked perfectly and served with refried beans, chorizo, guacamole, stuffed pepper and cactus and a stack of tortillas. The waiters... More

We had the pleasure of doing a day trip to Tequila with one of the highlights having lunch at Cholula La Fonda. Not being fans of Mexican food we found this restaurant to be bright, clean and the service was excellent. A highlight was the making of the fresh Salsa table side. The chicken and beef dishes were excellent and... More
