We were starving when we arrived in Tequila and this was the first restaurant we saw in the main plaza. Service was glacially slow and the food wasn't anything special.

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

Description
Fonda Cholula is the best restaurant in town. If you want to get a full vision about Tequila you have to complete with the flavor of the agave on your meal.

We use the best ingredients to get an awesome experience in your visit: Great service with our young waiters. Innovative, colorful and creative gastronomy made by our local cookers, refreshing drinks with a mixology touch!
Come to visit us & enjoy the taste of the agave on your meal!
