I had a "date night" with my daughter and grandson and we met up at La Fuente on Douglas Road. The restaurant is very nice and clean and the restrooms were clean. There are a lot of TV's in the bar area, which is huge...and good atmosphere. The chips are some of the best (very thin, crispy, white corn) and the salsa is good. I got a #11, and when it arrived, which was quickly, the temperature of the food was very sub-par. It was warm but that is about it. The portions were also a little skimpy but my main complaint is the temperature of the food that was served. The server did a very good job and fast! Probablty will go back there but not for a while as there are other choices in the area.More

Just a lovely night between the 2 of us we devoured enchiladas and street tacos. Off the street next to a bank which allows plenty of party during the evening. On down side was they are in middle of a bar remodeling and it was...going on in the evening.More

The couple that came in after us was leaving (finished their meal) before we even ordered. The service was slow at best. The food was okay. I have not eaten here in 2 years and probably won’t be back.

Just about every item on the menu is good. We’ve been coming to this restaurant since before they moved into this current building. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful. It is a popular spot so we try to come in the tween times...mostly on weekends. Try their Burrito Mexicano, it’s really tasty.More

It was chunky and lots of flavor. Carne asada was better cut of steak than most restaurants- thin but tender. Service was friendly-they were busy for a Monday night. Would eat there again.

I usually prefer tacos at home, but when your asked to go for a free meal why not...salsa has some bite. Food was actually pretty good, but not a every week place for me.

We waited several minutes at the bar before our drink order was taken. Incidentally they took so long to take our second drink order later that we saved money by not ordering any more. Years ago, before they built this location and were at a...smaller spot across the street, service was quick and friendly, and the margaritas were strong. Now the drinks are weak and you're likely to wait an extended period of time for anything you're looking forward to, even the chips and salsa. This visit, unfortunately was not the first time we experienced this, but each time we return we have forgotten about the bad service and get the same result. Other than this, the food is pretty good, so if you need a good burrito and cheese sauce, you shouldn't be disappointed.More

I rarely eat out & was excited to come here with large family gathering to see a movie down the road later. So many menu choices! I used their online menu before I went & had 3 choices I couldn't decide on. I decided instead...of the same old taco/enchilada dish I'd choose something new. I had the Pollo Cancun. Wow! The chicken was thin & shrimp fat & both were marinated in a heavenly sauce. I was concerned with spice but the dish just had wonderful flavor. I told everyone my mouth was having a party. I think we'll eat here more! Service was excellent, seated quickly even for a Friday night. She made sure all drinks filled often but didn't hover. Food came fast & hot. White chesse dip was addicting.More
