And those who know would be Mexican-heritage workers we observed in large numbers for lunch in this outer-suburban strip mall . . . one of those areas with lots of new construction where it's not easy to find a neighborhood restaurant. So when we found ourselves in an unfamiliar area on Saturday and looking for a late-ish lunch -- and a Mexican-food restaurant would be best -- imagine our delight when TripAdvisor pointed us to La Fuente just a half-mile from where we were. And really imagine our delight when we saw many painters or dry-wallers leaving the place. So in we went.

It's a large restaurant with many booths and tables in two areas. The menu is lengthy and has lots of what you'd expect and some unusual items, too. And so we went for the unusual: shrimp enchiladas in corn tortillas, with cheese and a light red sauce, served with rice and guacamole salad. All very good: the shrimp appears to be quickly cooked, probably sauteed or perhaps grilled, but either way firm and tasty. The guacamole was tasty but not large. Oh, and the corn chips served before the meal were good and the salsa was mild but had a flavor that improved, or so it seemed, the more one ate.

The waiter was prompt and pleasant and present just the right amount, which means NOT bugging you too much.

Only knock is that the place wasn't the cleanest joint in the world, but then it was at the tail-end of the lunch period and perhaps they'd been very busy. They were fairly busy still at 1:30 or so when we were there.

Very good food and good service. We love to gather here often with friends. Prices are good and the house margaritas are one of my favorites.

We have been here several times. The food is good. We have never been disappointed and we have been going for almost ten years. They have changed the decor inside and the chips and salsa tasted better this visit. The margaritas are great but a little sweet. The tostadas are great. I will continue to visit.
