This restaurant, which was a Tucson staple, has closed. The Tucson Star recently ran a detailed story on the closing and history of La Fuente.

We chose here to celebrate a birthday and we were not disappointed. It's an older establishment rich in culture and heritage. Food is good and proved reasonable . Dinner for 6 with a pitcher of margaritas was 135.00. We went during the week , only a handful of diners so service was excellent.

One of the best Mexican Dinners since we have been in AZ. Alphonso is a great host and made us feel good about choosing that particular restaurant. We will definitely eat there again.

We were looking to try Mexican food and we lucked out when we went to La Fuente. The service was good and the food excellent. The one man Mariachi Band was excellent as well. This gave you the feel of being in Mexico enjoying what they have to offer. We were not rushed; it was a very relaxing and enjoyable... More

La Fuente provided us with delicious adult beverages, the food was ok but the high light of the evening was the music. We were looking for a mariachi band and found the one man band at La Fuente. Everything from Sanata to other classic Mexican tunes. Dancing and making memories. We hope to return again someday. Thank you La Fuente... More

La Fuente is one of my favorite Mexican food restaurants in Tucson. Growing up with a Mexican mother, it's hard to find really good Mexican food that matches both her cooking and My Tia's. La Fuente comes close. They have traditional and seafood that just pleases the palate. They also have Mariachis and nightly entertainment. A great place for families... More
