I asked about carnitas and they said that they don't serve them. Disappointing to me. The lunch special I ordered was... read more

La Fuente is a small family owned business on Main Street in downtown Porterville. I love any of their entrees featuring what they call Azteca Sauce! It is a bit spicy but awesome. The service is good and the price is low for the quality of the food.

Okay I know it is odd that the seafood would be good here in the ville of Porter, but trust me on this The seafood soup is great, though I really like the mixed seafood enchiladas with fish, shrimp and octopus (yes octopus - again trust me on this - was very tender and non fishy) the freebee starter of...

This is my favorite Mexican Restraunt in Porterville. Have been a regular since it's inception. They have a variety of dishes including seafood. Really really good! Great friendly service.

Our waitress was very attentive and polite, our food arrived promptly (there were only 2 other tables with people) but the food was just not good. My Mom ordered the house specialty and she said it tasted like it was cooked in old oil. My sister ordered some enchiladas and didn't take more than one bite. I ordered some chile... More

While the staff and restaurant were both very welcoming, we were a little disappointed by our meal. We started the meal with a free taster of bean soup which was good, but the mains failed to meet our expectations. The mole sauce on the enchiladas tasted no better than the stuff you can buy in the grocery store and the... More
