Visited La Fuente for lunch on recent Friday in September. Having dined here multiple times over many years, we have never been disappointed and this visit was no exception. The weather accommodated outside dining. Our waitress, Anna, was prompt, helpful, and courteous. We placed our drink order and quickly received complimentary chips and salsa, water, and of course our margaritas.... More

We stopped in here for a late lunch one afternoon and sat at the bar as we usually like to do. Well, I was not aware that they offer special pricing on some appetizers and margaritas. We shared the nachos and had a couple of drinks and a twenty covered it all!!!

No queso! This is a big deal as we always eat Queso. The food was okay and the margaritas were salty. I definitely could have passed on this place

The food and margaritas were absolutely delicious! Husband had steak fajita tacos and I had a combo. The tostada with chicken on it was really good. Enchi sauce was excellent. Big outdoor patio with fountains.

I had to chicken fajita lunch special and it was very good. It came with some homemade soup that was simple but good. The fajitas were hot and had lots of peppers and onions. You won't leave hungry with the lunch special!

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants. The food here is always good and the margaritas are always on point. But watch out, they are strong! I love the fish tacos and their wings. It gets pretty crowded on weekends and the service is a bit slow, but it's worth it. Just order your margarita right away. That comes fast.

February 6th was our evening to go to the play at the Milwaukee Rep. We had a few errands to run on the way in and were worried we didn't have a lot of time for a good "sit down" meal. I suggested La Fuente. We haven't been there for a while, but we weren't disappointed. We arrived at 6:50... More

La Fuente has two locations, and both are a favorite of mine at all times. I love their combination plates and the rice is always a belly full of happiness! Watch out for the Margarita's! They are very potent! I had one with diner and felt the buzz as I got up to walk to the car! Well done!
