Good food and good service

The food here is great. My favorite meal is the enchiladas. Their chips and salsa are addicting . We've always had great service. The servers always notice empty glasses, chip baskets, etc... and refill or ask if you need anything. I highly recommend the margaritas! La Fuentes is a family favorite.

We love the shrimp soup at La Fuente. We always get the soup so can not comment on other dishes but they look delicious. The soup has lots of shrimp and very very good.

I have now officially given up on al Mexican Restaurants in Wisconsin. This place was highly rated and I was told you won't be disappointed. I love Mexican food and it seems you they cone a dime a dozen in Milwaukee. I was so hoping for a great experience but, we got another below average service and meal. I ordered... More

Good food, pleasant atmosphere, interesting drinks. The combo appetizer plate was really good. All seven of us enjoyed our meals.

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!

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 has...
