I've used La Fuente a few times for a catered lunch at my office. Tacos, enchiladas, rice, and beans. It's our go-to office lunch that everyone likes.

Driving by we looked at the building with concern about going in, but we decided to anyway. Glad we did! Top notch service, top notch food, short wait times, etc. everything was great, all the way down to the dinner mint they gave us after we finished!

I love the milonesa de pollo, rice and beans. They serve potted pinto beans as an appetizer which tasted like my homemade beans (my kids love them).

One of the few Mexican restaurants to offer a white sauce. My favorite menu item is the envelpo in beef or chicken. Salsa is spicey goodness. You get a small bean soup with dinners. Back room is good for gatherings. Best service, male waiters.

Good Mexican food and wonderful family service! La Fuente is always one of my first choices for lunch after church on Sunday's. They will easily accommodate large groups and did a wonderful job hosting our daughter's rehearsal dinner last January.

I go here fairly often. Along with the standard chips and salsa every meal comes with a bowl of bean soup as an appetizer. This restaraunt has a vegetarian menu, which is so rare for restaraunts in the area.

La Fuente is a small family owned business on Main Street in downtown Porterville. I love any of their entrees featuring what they call Azteca Sauce! It is a bit spicy but awesome. The service is good and the price is low for the quality of the food.

I was brought here for a quick business lunch and I had an iced tea, and their lunch special or one shredded beef taco and chicken enchilada. It came with rice and re-fried beans. I asked about carnitas and they said that they don't serve them. Disappointing to me. The lunch special I ordered was ok. They could have been... More
