This is a fun place with friendly service and great food. Try the shrimp tostada for sure. The salsas were fresh and tasty, too. The service was a little slow, but I'm guessing that's not typical. It's easy to get here off of 101

Best Mexican food I had in ages. Food took awhile but it was worth the wait. Food is fresh and authentic. It's decorated nicely with lovely pictures and pottery. I just loved it.

Traveling south on Highway 101, we stopped at La Fuente for lunch. It is a cute little place conveniently just off the highway. As other reviewers have stated, service is very slow but friendly. It took us an hour but we had the time and we were rewarded with a delicious lunch. I had the Shrimp Tostada which was loaded... More

We had dinner here on our trip to Pinnacles and really enjoyed it. It's a cute place with lots of character. Really pretty small so it feels cosy and friendly. We had chili verde, sopes, and enchiladas. All the food was very good. The chili verde was a standout. Very generous portions. The chips and salsa were good too. One... More

We visited this restaurant at the suggestion of the Inn at Pinnacles staff. We enjoyed talking with the staff / owner (very friendly and hospitable). Authentic Mexican home-cooked food. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

We came here on the recommendation of the Super 8 clerk. We quickly realized that the small staff was overwhelmed by the almost full restaurant. Orders were mixed up, chips and salsa served out of sequence. People who showed up after us were being served before us. We got a bit frustrated. The staff was apologetic after we complained gently.... More

We walked in at 8:05PM not realizing they closed at 8PM (on a Sunday). She still allowed us to come in and order dinner. We all ordered super enchiladas and I really enjoyed mine. My fellow diners thought it was average. Average prices, but I was sad that rice and beans and such were not included with the entrees.

Recommended by motel manager. Very spicy salsa & chile colorado. Greasy tostada but lots of fresh lettuce, tomato, cheese & guacamole. Interesting Mexican folk decor and old photos.

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and what a treat it was. They serve some of the best Mexican food I gave had in years. The service was excellent and the decor is just downright fun. This is a delightful place to enjoy a good meal and relax.

Food was average to good. Long wait for a simple burrito. Nicely decorated inside. Salsas both were quite spicy. Food was fairly priced.
