The service here was excellent, and the food was average. It was not very flavorful and there was too much sauce. The salsa was good and the prices were reasonable.

Great menu with a large selection. Very reasonably priced and generous portions. Above par salsa. Newly remodeled, much classier.

It's your typical Mexican place with middle of the road prices, tons of combos, etc. Good salsa (fairly smooth, nice cilantro flavor). Good chips. Decent burrito. Not a very big burrito but good flavor (chicken). It was the special at $6.99 so I can't complain....More

Just good average food. Nothing stands out but a decent local of you’re craving Mexican. Salsa is good and chips are thin and normally fresh and warm.

Still looking for the awesome Mexican restaurant since moving to Missouri. Decided to try La Fuente. I have to say they didn't disappoint. I had the carne asada tacos and my wife had the tacos El pastor both were really good, meat was well seasoned....More

My wife and I just had dinner here. My fajitas were great and she liked her taco salad. Portions are large for the price. I wasn't crazy about the chips and salsa but that's minor.

First time to eat here. My husband had the beef fajitas and I had the carne asada. Both were very good. Service was quick, friendly, and efficient. Would definitely recommend.
