We were a group of about 30 people and were seated at a long table. Service was attentive. We had a choice of 3 entrees. I had a chicken dish. Everyone was raving about their pork meal. The drinks ranged from beer to tequila (no surprise) and of course margaritas (very good). The mariachi band stopped by - that was... More

Sorry, but in spite of its popularity, I couldn't tolerate the noise. The line to get in was longer than a half hour wait or longer for lunch. The music was way too loud...ear busting loud, making it impossible for conversation. The place was packed with noisy tourists, obviously because the location is ideal, across from the plaza. I'm sure... More

Food is not bad, but overpriced due to location. I had cheese enchiladas - good, not great. Others had steaks, again good not great. Large portions. Large drinks. Friendly staff. The whole place smelled too much like cleaning solution and bleach.

This restaurant is very conveniently located in tequilas main square BUT waiting time is crazy and the place is wet small for having one mariachi on ground floor and ANOTHER on first floor. Impossible to have a decent conversation

I went with my girlfriend for lunch. We ordered chamorro and arrachera. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. However, they allow some local mariachis to enter the restaurant. They play loud music and annoy you because they want to be hired. In total we paid like 40 USD.

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.

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.
You can enjoy the colors and flavors of our mexican gastronomy, but overall you're going to taste the flavor of agave and penca in 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!
