Waitress told our table our food took so long because of my side of mole sauce. Funny thing was she forgot to bring me my mole sauce. The margaritas are no tasty at all and the food was just average. Do not wast your time... (more)

I'm not a fan of mexican food, but I enjoyed my experience. I was told to go here, it was pretty pricey, but I guess it was because we ordered a lot of pitchers of margaritas. You get a lot of food also. Service was not great,... (more)

I used to frequent La Fuente on a regular basis, however I think the quality of their food and their service has gone downhill in the past year. It is too crowded and once you do get a seat, they are in a big hurry to get you... (more)

Food doesn't taste like authentic mexican food. I felt like I was eating at Chi chi's. Good atmosphere and bar area. I would not recommend coming here for the food. Find another mexican place. Eat here and I guarantee... (more)
