The mariachis were a bit loud but you don't have to sit right next to where they perform if you don't want to. I look forward to... More

From the moment we walked in the door we felt a warm welcome. Jose our server was exceptionally friendly and attentive to our needs. We were there celebrating my birthday and I had the greatest evening. Food was amazing and the entire staff was very pleasant. We highly recommend La Fuente to many others

Our group of 25 went to La Fuente for lunch in June and everyone really enjoyed the food and thought the value was good as well. I'm partial to going there in the evening for the mariachi music because I never tire of hearing it.

Food was just so so . For the area in which we live, mexican food dominates the restaurant scene and theres is just okay. A little pricey for the table side guacamole. It was good but overpriced. There are much better places out there.

Thank Loomin8
