Very good small town Mexican Food. The staff are always very friendly and efficient. They have a typical menu, but my family always chooses the Cheese Pollo dip. Bits of chicken over rice and drenched in queso. Sounds like an appetizer, but it's a hearty meal. Décor is typical Mexican... read more

LOVE la Fuente. Great staff, fun place to go. Good margaritas, I always get the blue kind. Really fun to meet up with family and friends here. Very fast service, too.

In my last review of La Fuente I said I was disappointed in the bland food and shabby appearance. While the absente landlord it totally to blame for the Church Plaza's run-down appearance, the restaurant itself has obviously made good strides in interior upgrades. New paint, tables, and booth benches were apparent and much appreciated. My wife and I split... More

This once was one of our favorite restaurants. However the atmosphere is getting rather worn inside and out. They say they are moving to the new Kearney Shops in a year, but it's to soon to stop maintenance. Once you arrive you are greeted with mossy awnings ans peeling paint. The service is always fast but the food is rather... More

Margaritas were good for $3.50. The Enchiladas Ranchero tasted good, but presentation wasn't what we're used to in Phoenix. The #12 Combination had a chalupa that was more like a soggy tostada. It also tasted okay, but we think the waiter wrote down the wrong combination or my wife got the wrong dish. Still, it was worth the visit and... More

We stopped on a Friday night and had to wait a few minutes to get seated. Everyone was busy but very friendly and helpful. I wanted a shrimp burrito, but it was not on the menu. Our waiter checked with the kitchen and said they could make one. SO Good! Monster margaritas were Huge and delicious. Gotta love a Mexican... More

La Fuente Mexican Restaurant experience you can't resist in going back to. We have at least one meal every two weeks there it is so good. Of all the Mexican restraints you will not find one that beat its timely service. No sooner than you sit down and the chips and salsa are on the table. You can expect you... More

They use ground beef in everything. Nothing was particularly tasty nor spicy. I got a lot of food in my combo platter but it was all just bland. Would not eat here again.

We eat here often. The servers are the best ever, fast and friendly. The food is always fresh and flavorful. There is a variety of dishes instead of just the usual tacos. Definitely recommend!
