Our group of 25 went to La Fuente for lunch in June and everyone really enjoyed the food and thought the value was good as well. I'm partial to going there in the evening for the mariachi music because I never tire of hearing it.

Food was just so so . For the area in which we live, mexican food dominates the restaurant scene and theres is just okay. A little pricey for the table side guacamole. It was good but overpriced. There are much better places out there.
