view web site ›'s insider take:

The haciendalike Fonda San Miguel has been an Austin eating institution for over 30 years and is well worth the detour off South Congress. There may be more conveniently located taco joints in central Austin, but none offer Fonda San Miguel's authentic Mexican cuisine or atmosphere—or, for that matter, its potent, frozen fruit–filled red sangria. The warm sunset-orange walls are adorned with distinctive artwork by Mexican artists, and most of the produce comes from Fonda San Miguel's own garden, one of the largest restaurant gardens in Austin. The menu, with signature Mexican dishes from seven regions, includes the Yucatán specialty cochinita pibil (pork baked in banana leaf) and camarónes Tikin Xik (achiote-seasoned shrimp). All entrées come with a side of divinely buttery frijoles that will make you forget every pasty lump of refried beans you've ever been served elsewhere. Finish off your meal with two scoops of the house-made sorbets (ask for the guanabana).—Carolina Santos-Neves

Open Mondays through Saturdays 5:30 to 9:30 pm, Sundays 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
