Mexican done to perfection…..

The greeting is always wonderful - you are an old friend and part of the family. The margaritas are always ice cold and perfect. in the summer, the patio cannot be beat on a hot day. the food is tasty and hot and there is lots of it….we usually let the waiter pick out at least one dish. there... read more

At first I was hesitant. The building doesn't look impressive and I was expecting the food to taste like the building looked. There was a outdoor waterfall inside and the decor is tacky. But, the service was excellent and the food was amazing! We had chicken tamales, beef burritos and shrimp tacos and mango margaritas and all was awesome! I'm... More

LaFuentes is a must eat when in Milwaukee at the original location on 5th. I first dined here many years ago when it was just one room of about a dozen tables. It has since expanded to the entire building and the food has not changed, nor the service. The chicken Chimichangas and shrimp soup are my favorites. Margaritas(any flavor)... More

After having gone to LaFuente for over 35 years, we walked out today. we waited over 30 minutes and no wait service ever came to the table to take our drink order or inquire if we would like something….that seemed to be the experience of most of the people in our area. we approached the young lady at the entry,...

Highly recommend getting the blended raspberry margaritas. Plenty of alcohol in them but taste great too! I almost always get the chicken tacos but have also had the flutas and tostadas. Everything has been awesome!

La Fuente is our favorite restaurant on the south side of the city. I have dined at all the Mexican/Latin restaurants, and I can definitely say I like La Fuente the best. Dine on the patio in the summer. It's lovely!

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
