Mexican style home cooking.

Ample portions and a very friendly staff. The food is pretty Gringo-friendly, so if you are looking for "authentic Mexican food", this might not be to your taste. But if you want delicious comfort food, La Fuentes is strongly recommended.

We ate lunch here with friends and had 3 different menu items and all were delicious and there was a ton of food...endless chips and salsa and a small bowl of some kind of spicy cabbage slaw served with the chips and salsa that was yummy. They were very accommodating to my husband's food allergies and even brought out the... More

Came here for dinner. Was served very quickly. The staff worked like a team with anyone who passed by checking on us to be sure we had water and salsa. Food was fantastic and it came hot! Never had salsa as good as theirs. Portions were huge and we left with enough for lunch and snack tomorrow. Can't rave enough... More

Who knew that some of the best Mexican food anywhere can be had in Wenatchee, and at La Fuente in particular. We've eaten there every time through Wenatchee, since 1997... and that's a lot! BTW: it's still very good!

I decided to try their special, which was Pollo a la Crema, essentially chicken in a cream sauce. Very tasty dish, and when I ran out of tortillas, their attentive waitress promptly got me some more. They don't just serve salsa with their chips, either, they include pico de gallo, and it is very good. Their Cadillac margarita is excellent.

Three of us ate here on a busy Friday night. Busy is good, right! We didn't wait but about 15 minutes and were seated. This is a small place with lots of help so they get you in and are very attentive. Two of us had Mar Y Tierra. We chose to have it with Carne Asada and I must... More

I eat here, mostly lunch, two or three times a month and am never dissappointed. It is a small restaurant not a lot of room so the atmosphere is lacking but the food is good and the service is fast.

Many folks in Wenatchee love this place. It's okay and I go when my friends want to go. It's often busy and you have to wait a while for a table. The food is ok they have a few dishes that are great... but mostly it's just ok.

There were flies everywhere when I ate here in the end of August. Everyone was swatting at them with their menu's. 4 hours after eating here I was vomiting. The next day a woman at work went to Lafuente in Wenatchee for lunch (at noon) and at 4pm she too began vomiting. Probably because of the flies. (She had to... More

the food was great and you get so much. We couldn't even finish it. The place is a little run down but don't let that fool you. Service was friendly and fast. Would go back for sure.
