Went to the Wauwatosa location on Bluemound for lunch on a Thursday. The first problem was parking. There are very few spots in their parking lot out front. Then good luck finding a place on the street in the surrounding residential neighborhood. I ended up a block and a half away. The restaurant was not busy so we got seated... More

Wauwatosa location. There was no problem with the food or the margaritas. The food isn't going to send you into orbit but it's tasty and decently priced. The waitress was very good if overworked. The dining room seemed to be populated with a handful of busboys and a manager but only one waitress. It took a little while to get... More

Food was excellent. We ordered chimichangas and the dinner should have come with 2 each but we only got 1 each. The waiter was quick to correct the mistake and it was not a big deal. This was our first visit and we would definitely visit again.

Arrived with spouse and daughter on Saturday early evening. We were able to be seated right away. We did order the ½ pitcher of margarita and daughter had an orange soda. We had the typical chips and salsa, ordered ½ guacamole and that was really good. Deciding on the choices is so hard with so many options and the combos... More

We've been fans of La Fuentes for years. I do love the shrimp Chimichangas. However, I feel like overall, this restaurant has has slipped a bit in the past year or two. Service is still good, food is more just average than I remember. I'll still go back, but it's not at the top of my list.

We enjoyed pitchers of drinks, guacamole, and tasty food. The restaurant has a number of sitting areas so wait was not a problem. The food and staff were fun and quick to help pick a great dinner for the group. We will be back!

I loved La Fuente on Bluemound the first couple years it was open.They had a very pleasant,professonial manager. Now, it appears to be disorganized and short staffed. It was terrible on Mother's Day. We had to wait quite awhile although there were many available tables. The servers and bus boys who are there are very good. Margaritas continue to be... More

Le Fuente has one of my personal favorite outdoor patios in the Milwaukee Area. It's large, festive and has decorative fountains throughout. A perfect place to enjoy a sunny afternoon and a pitcher of frosty cold margs.

My favorite Mexican restaurant in the U.S. Have moved away from Milwaukee, but still visit yearly. One of my first stops when I'm back in town. Also, the outdoor patio is fabulous in the summer.

This is a great authentic Mexican place! And in the summer time the out door dining is fantastic. It's like a little bit of Mexico in downtown Milwaukee. Service is superb every time.
