Experience the History of Fondas

Modeled after a traditional Mexican Fonda, or a small and affordable restaurant, Castillo Real Mexican Cocina & Bar was founded over 35 years ago. With roots in Gonzalez, Tamaulipas, Mexico, Romualdo Castillo Sr. and his wife, Luisa Portes de Castillo, opened a Fonda in their one-car garage house, where the foundation of the menu of Castillo Real Mexican Cocina & Bar was born. Flautas, sopes, tostadas, menudo, and pozole are all popular offerings of Mexican Fondas and made their way to Henry County when the establishment opened here in 1982.

Authentic Mexican Cuisine

Serving lunch, dinner, and drinks, Castillo Real Mexican Cocina & Bar has become famous for bringing the real Mexican flavors from south of the border straight to Henry County. Age-old Castillo family recipes still shine through today on a menu filled with the freshest ingredients, with options from nachos, soups, and quesadillas to tacos, burritos, chimichangas, and much more.

Aside from traditional authentic Mexican dishes, visitors enjoy innovations hard to find elsewhere. For an unforgettable starter, try the Avocado Shrimp Ceviche, which is served as a dip alongside those famous Mexican chips. Looking for a Southern twist? The Seafood Burrito brings together shrimp, tilapia, and the finest spices and flavors to make for a meal unlike any other.

For something on the lighter side, try the recently introduced Mexicobb Chicken Salad, a combination of lettuce, hard-boiled egg, tomato, cheese, and Mexi-ranch dressing. You could also opt for the Cazuela Bowl, which brings out the best of charro beans, sautéed peppers, mushrooms, guacamole, and much more.

Margaritas, Daiquiris, and More

Aside from soft drinks, juices, aguas frescas, and other beverage options, Castillo Real Mexican Cocina & Bar offers a wide selection of alcoholic options at its full service bar.
