“Best Mexican food in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We've been going to Las Fuentes for probably about ten years. Maybe more. My husband can recommend the enchilada dishes. I can recommend their tacos, their quesadillas and their fajitas. The fajitas for two can actually feed 3 or 4, or you can take leftovers home. Their queso dip is also excellent.

The atmosphere is fairly standard Mexican restaurant decor. The smoking section has several televisions, usually tuned to sports stations. It's also a separate little room off to the side of the entrance, so food doesn't have to pass through it on its way to the non-smoking section, and non-smokers don't have to walk through it on the way to the restrooms.

I have never had bad service there in ten years. The staff are always helpful about modifying an order - my fajitas and quesadillas are pretty heavily modified. No this, no that, but double this other thing and add something else, those kind of modifications.

“You can find better!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Food is just mediocre! There are much better Tex Mex places in Magnolia! The atmosphere is decent and people are friendly but the food is just mediocre!

“Best Margaritas in Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We have been going now to Las Fuentes for over three years now and the food just keeps getting better and better. Noe and Elizabeth (owners) are the best when it comes to making you feel welcome and receive great customer service. Margaritas are the best without a doubt so smooth. Go by and see them you will not be disappointed.

“Consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We have visited the newer location at 6960 FM1488 many times. Very good food at good prices, and the service is always outstanding. Jumbo margaritas served during happy hour are huge. Restaurant is very clean and bright; nice atmosphere.
