Nothing on the menu is not delicious. The taste of all the food is always excellent and never a let down. Best tasting Mexican food I have found in a long time.

The interior wall of Fuentes' downtown restaurant exploded and left the building devastated. This Mexican food favorite is being remodeled and will include upgrades throughout. But don't worry, Mr. Fuentes says the enchiladas and tacos will be made with the old traditional recipe.

Bad storms in Nov/Dec caused a building adjacent to collapse and damage Fuentes Cafe; however this allows for remolding and to reopen with good food and service.

I really wanted to like this restaurant, being a long lasting local one.
The hot sauce was nice, but the food was lacking in taste, not terrible but I would say nothing special, we wished we had tried somewhere else. That being said the staff was friendly and attentive
