In a town that is Tex-Mex a go-go, Fonda rocks its interior Mexican style. I don’t even think their kitchen has orange cheese. My favorite thing to do is sit at the bar for apps and a Margarita or four (on the rocks, no salt). The bar itself is a cool copper with a fat rail that they just re-lacquered. It still has that new Shellac smell. Mmm. And, good news for me, their happy hour just got a kick in the pants. Now, the whole appetizer menu (not just selected) is half off, 5pm-7pm, Monday through Thursday. The house wine is $5, house frozen and rocks Margaritas $4.95.
