Fonda Dona Maria - CLOSED
Houston, TX 77022
Houston Press' Description
When you walk in this place, you feel like you got off I-45 at the Guadalajara exit. The walls are bedecked with a jaw-dropping display of Mexican pottery. Old-fashioned black fans churn the air from the high ceilings. Giant bottles filled with agua fresca line the drink station. This place does a better job on slow-simmered meat dishes, Mexican breakfasts and other typical south-of-the-border fare than it does on Tex-Mex. So try the huevos, the guisados and the pork dishes, and forget about the combo platters.
