First of all, the service at La Fuente is wonderful! They are all friendly, courteous, and helpful! The food is excellent and, if you aren't sure, they will explain each of the dishes and even modify to your specific desires! My wife and I go there each week for our weekly day/date and love the food, drinks, and service! Also,... More

Quesadilla deluxe with extra cheese, fabulous! Also a fan of their taco salad, with shredded beef. Spicy but excellent. They serve some of the best salsa, too. Big glasses of diet coke! The reason I mention the extra cheese is that depending on who is in the kitchen, the Quesadilla can be different. First one was awesome, and second one,... More

In our small town of 1500 there are an inordinate number of restaurants. None are the best of their class. Therefore it is best to compare them to each other. La Fuente is in the top 5 and top 2 of its genera. Best if you count excellent parking.

Visited here to try it again. Was impressed with the new location. The staff was friendly, although a little overtaxed, given it was the afternoon they probably don't staff well. The food was out quickly and hot. The taste was great, but somewhat lacking flavor. I enjoyed the taste of the salsa. The visit was very good, no major issues.

I visited this restaurant when it first opened several years ago. The food seemed kind of over cooked. I think I ordered an enchilada and the wrap was like it was microwaved it had the rubbery feeling, and was tough. Turned me off on this location. I might need to make another visit though, since they have moved to a... More

We had lunch La Fuente in August and it was a satisfactory experience. The menu is standard Mexican and the portions are hearty. The atmosphere is small town Illinois.
