I have been eating at the original LaFuente's for 25 years. Its still by far my favorite Mexican Restaurant in the city and surrounds suburbs. I got my husband hooked 17 years ago too! Nothing ever compares for us when we try new places. There is a distinct difference though with their locations quality and service. They added the Bluemound location a few years ago and then most recently the Waukesha location. I'll start with the original location on S. 5th. By far our fav one to go to in the summer. The patio is beautiful! We've never had any problems with the food there - just wait staff now and then. The Bluemound location is very comparable to 5th St., however their patio is on a busy road and not so nice. We prefer their first room with the fireplace, very cozy vs the 2nd room which is like a big hall...great for large groups. The Waukesha location is a hot MESS!!! It's closest to our house but won't go there anymore. The food and service is horrible. Don't waste your time there when there are 2 other decent locations. The margaritas are the best I've ever had and the same at all 3 locations. We always get the Original on the Rocks. 1/2 pitcher is a better bang for your buck instead of 2 glasses (you get 3 or 4 out of it). The House on the rocks used to be a staple for us until we accidently ordered the Original. Only 2.00 more and well worth it! In conclusion, if your looking for a great outside atmosphere - definitely 5th street. If your looking for something more centrally located in the middle of the city, Bluemound location and if you want to be really disappointed...the Waukesha location. Enjoy! You will love it!!!
