We had a nice lunch after a full morning in Branson. I had the Fuentes burrito with chicken and my husband had the street tacos. Both were very good, service was also good, very attentive and friendly. This is a small restaurant although they have...a nice large patio in the back.More

Very poor service and food quality. They brought out our queso and guacamole but no chips. When we asked for chips, we were told we will get them when our server has time. Only 1 other was table occupied. By the time we received our...chips the queso was cold. We ordered 1 guacamole and they charged us for 2. When we told them we only ordered one and only received one, they argued with us and told us we had to pay for the second one. When we told them that we were not paying for the second guacamole, they said someone is going to pay for it. After long debate, we asked if they wanted a tip or the guacamole paid for, they told us someone is going to pay for the guacamole. Food wasn't that good either.More

Food was cold. Order was wrong. Server said he left my beef for fajitas in the microwave. I was shocked and thankful the beef never arrived.

First time here. Branson 76 location. Picked up a dinner and app for wife, Togo. Steak taco app and carnitas. Carnitas were all fat. Fed it to the dog. She enjoyed 💪. Tacos were meh at best. No flavor. I I tried one, to see...what the wife complained about. And yea, bland as could be. “Eat local, it’s better” sign should be removed. Should have just went to Taco Bell.More

We had great food and the friendliest little waitress here. She was quick, attentive and accommodating. The place is quite small, but the food is very good!

Authentic Mexican food. Not upscale and a bit noisy but food and drink was very good. Service was quick. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Went there around 630 for dinner. Place was near full but we were seated quickly.

I'm a vegetarian and they are happy to make substitutions easily for me! Our waitress was so polite and attentive! The rice and beans were so good! Margaritas are amazing! Easy to park and get in and out! The food came out in record time...and was so hot!More

Wow, the display sign said "eat local" and so we did and ended up paying way too much food for fajita veggies/meat in a chimichanga as well as a very small bowl of white cheese dip.

Went here with three other family members. Food took quite awhile and once delivered the rice was very hard and crunchy. Meat was unseasoned. Very average meal for the more inflated prices. However, it ended with a large bug crawling on the wall next to...our table and falling into one of our plates 😷 we were sitting right next to the kitchen! Not ideal. Very thankful none of us good food poisoning from this experience.More

The food smelled delicious, and I was excited to try something new. Unfortunately, we never got to order. It is a super small place and we were told to sit anywhere. We sat down and waited. And waited. And waited. About ten minutes passed and...the person standing right there saw us (again it is a small place) kept passing us by with no acknowledgement. He never said hi, never got us drinks, nothing. He waited on other tables who had their food,but we just sat there awkwardly as he continued passing us by for about ten minutes. We ended up leaving and finding somewhere else to eat. Such a shame. We were looking forward to eating there.More

We drove into Branson at 1:30 on Friday and were starving. Did a quick trip advisor search. This restaurant came up as the next one. We went in and it’s very small only about 12 tables. One man serving ( probably the owner). The reviews...were mixed but we had a great meal. They have lunch specials. Like eating in abulita’s kitchen. We highly recommend.More

My wife and I ate here on Sunday 7/19/20 at 1:30 pm. Marlee was Very Friendly when we entered and sat us promptly. The Dining area only holds about 30 people. We ordered Margaritas, ( that came out of a Pre-Made Jug). Not worth the...$9 each. I had the Fuentes Steak Burrito ,rice and Re fried bean, My wife Ordered the Carnitas with rice and Re Fried beans. The Food was Good, But Not Authentic. The Bill was $60. Great Service, Food was Okay, Margaritas were Nothing to back for. We will Try somewhere Else next time.More

We have been going to Casa Fuentes for at least 15 years. It never disappoints. Great food. The salsa was absolutely delicious!! Things are done a little differently because of Covid 19 but that did not affect our food or service!!

My girlfriend and I went in for lunch. First thing is they tell you first chips are free after that you pay. Okay no problem except with the covid virus do I want to share a bowl of salsa? And a half bowl at that....I asked for hot sauce and got a medicine cup. Naturally, we ran out of salsa before we were half done eating. Couldn't get the waiters attention even though the place is small. Finally got his attention and after another ten minutes he brings out a medicine cup of salsa. I said we need salsa he said well if you want a bowl you'll have to pay for it. My food was cold so I said forget it. When we went to pay he charged us $2.50 for a medicine cup of salsa. Tried to charge me for a coke I didn't have (I drank water). Food was below average but he was the rudest waiter I've seen in years.More

I am sorry for your bad experience. Our regular Salsa is served on a bowl, but our spicy Salsa is now served on a 2 oz container to avoid waste.
