Great Mexican place to eat!

My first time eating here and everything that I tried was really good! Nice servings and tasty food! I think the only thing I didn't like was the noise level, but that is because so many people were eating there! Obviously, people like this place and I can definitely see why!

For a Tuesday night they weren't prepared to serve us. Waited 20 mins for drinks. The espinaca dip was watery and not good. The salsa was perfect. Rice very dry. The fajitas were okay. Onions and peppers were burned but the steak was perfect. Most likely won't be back

Let me say that first and foremost I would go back but I just would not order the Caldo De Camaron again. The chips and salsa are delightful. The setup is spacious enough to where you do not feel shoehorned in and the staff are very gracious. This is why when I totally surprised when I ate the shrimp and... More

A friend and I went there for dinner on a week night and it was packed. I took that as a good sign. We were seated pretty quickly - not a long wait. I had heard good things about this chain of restaurants and was looking forward to dinner. We placed our order and in less than 5 minutes our... More

Ate there three times to give it a chance and it has been terrible EVERY time. The first time I ordered a tamale with the dinner and all it was was corn meal with a tinny (smaller than a pencil) bit of meat in the center. Sent it back. When checking out I told the cashier how bad their tamales... More

The food was great, typical Jalisco region Mexican style. Had the carne asada tacos, the meal was huge. Also, the margarita was tasty.

Had an early dinner her with my DD and DH. Restaurant was practically empty - maybe three other tables in use. Got our drinks right away, but took 20 minutes to return for our orders. Food was then out in about 5 minutes! First our hostess brought me the wrong dish. Apparently she grabbed the wrong plate from the kitchen... More

Not only do I love the food here, but the people are so nice. They treat you so well, especially when you are a regular. They mix a mean margarita too! Their specials are real bargains.

My husband and I ate at a La Fuente Mexican restaurant off of Woods Chapel Rd and it was awful! We will not go back.
