Who we are


In March of 2009, Mr. Villarreal and his family opened La Fonda Don Martin that is located on McPherson Rd in Laredo, TX. To this day, they continue to offer their customers the flavors of traditional Mexican food with outstanding customer service.

It all started…

Where we’re headed


One day, as lunch time approached (in another business), Mr. Villarreal asked one of his employees to prepare some “homemade” food. The chef started to prepare the first meals such as cortadillo mexicano, chiles rellenos, enchiladas, and sopes. In one similar occasion, he prepared the popular TACOS DORADOS DE PAPA, which they shared with some of their customers. The reaction and comments of the customers was such that they motivated Mr. Villlarreal to open a restaurant that would offer this type of food. It was through this desire to share these meals with employees and customers that La Fonda Don Martin was born.

Our mission is to embed the flavors of our food in our customers so that when they think of Mexican food, they think of La Fonda Don Martin and to become a tradition in Mexican cuisine for generations to come.

Our vision is to become the best choice in traditional Mexican food in Laredo, Texas by 2014.
