“Good Mexican food...”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I was born and raised near Tijuana and have traveled in Mexico. I love good Mexican food and am pretty particular. This little "Casa Fuentes" in Branson, Mo is a very nice surprise. Frankly, those of us who know good food have a tendency to turn our collective noses up at the suggestion that good Mexican can be found this far north of the border. Taint so! Casa Fuentes is small in size but big on good authentic food and prompt service. Prices here are very reasonable and portions are ample. We are particularly fond of the Chiles Rellenos but I have never eaten any dish there that was not pleasing to me. Just this morning I went there for Huevos Rancheros and they were good as usual. Their salsa is fresh and very tasty. I would like the chips a bit better were they a bit thinner and warm but that is certainly no deal killer. I still will eat them all day long.

All in all, this one is on my favorites list for authentic Mexican food. The menu is complete enough even to accomodate those who find an affinity for "Tex-Mex", which in the palate of a true Mexican food lover is not Mexican at all, (said tongue in cheek). Truly, the menu is complete and quite delicious no matter how you prefer your Mexican food, and you will most often leave with change in your pocket. The prices are very reasonable..

“Obsessed with the salsa!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Since I'm a local I have strict rules against driving on the 76 strip, but I will always make an exception for Casa Fuentes. I highly recommend the fajitas and the queso dip. Also, the salsa is out of this world and prepared fresh daily. Not to mention that your food is always ready in less than ten minutes, whether the place is packed or not. They also have an outdoor seating area.

“Outstanding TACOS!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

After living on the border for almost 30 years we have been looking for carne asada tacos with guacamole and cilantro on the small corn tortillas throughout the midwest where we now live. Well, look no further, because Casa Fuentes Mexican Restaurant in Branson make them! They were delicious!

“Bland food and puzzling waiter comments.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Went here on recommendation of a local. No customers but us here at 530 pm. None came in. Sole waiter made several comments that could be taken as though we were wasting his time. Not sure why. Food came quickly enough and was plentiful in quantity but lacked any flavor. Salsa was the only redeeming taste treat. Will not return.
