Never Better

La Fuente has two locations, and both are a favorite of mine at all times. I love their combination plates and the rice is always a belly full of happiness! Watch out for the Margarita's! They are very potent! I had one with diner and felt the buzz as I got up to walk to the car! Well done!

February 6th was our evening to go to the play at the Milwaukee Rep. We had a few errands to run on the way in and were worried we didn't have a lot of time for a good "sit down" meal. I suggested La Fuente. We haven't been there for a while, but we weren't disappointed. We arrived at 6:50... More

Service was excellent and the food was great as always. Recent physical changes in decorating the north "hall" has improved the visit. Antonio, our waiter, is the best we have had anywhere.

Food is very good. Very accommodating for large groups. Fast and friendly service. Fun for a drink after work, dinner with the family or a night out with friends.

La Fuente is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have been to. The food is consistently great and the drinks are amazing. I'm a fan of the steak tacos and rainbow margarita. You will not be sorry. Matter of fact, you will thank me later.

First of all, our service was something left to be desired. All drinks came out slow. It took about 15 minutes to get all of our drinks.( The restaurant was not busy at all) Second of all, when our food came out, we never received any type of “check back”. We all had empty drinks and could’ve ordered more. And... More

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.
