Detail for La Fuente : Restaurant, Mexican
Rating: 1 planets.
Avoid Waukesha location! Service was terrible, food was average at best. Went at 7:45 on a Friday night - no waiting for table, just for drinks, service, bill & anything else that required an employee or any form of customer service. There were plenty of employees there, unfortunately only 1 of them seemed to be working & the others were clearly put out when you interrupted their drinking at the bar to get any kind of service. Take the time & hassle to drive downtown or to Tosa & hunt for parking. Waukesha location should be an embarassment to the La Fuente name.

A fun atmosphere makes this a popular place for a couple of cervazas. Modestly priced dishes keeps this place full, with choices such as enchiladas, tacos, and burritos. Also available is camaron a la diabla for those wanting a little extra spice in their food, and the shrimp soup is a decent choice.
We sampled the tamales stuffed with chicken mole (the signature dish) .. they were fantastic.
Margaritas are excellent - on the rocks, salt on the rim. - sys, 08/30/2009
Enjoy award-winning Mexican food amidst old Mexican pictures and murals, sounds of Mariachi music, and a festive atmosphere. Outdoor dining, Mexican beer, and delicious margaritas available. - alotta, 07/10/2000

SERVICE FEE on the bill! Three of us dined with a bill of about $52, and then we noticed the $7 SERVICE FEE which we were told was for the "bus boys."!!! The steak tacos were like shards of overcooked meat, which tasted like days old meat.
The La Fuente Special was supposed to come with guacamole, instead we were charged $2.10. Chairs were like cafeteria chairs, which didn't seem to fit for the high prices. Go to a better, more reasonable place without a service charge like Botanas, Swayz, Cempazuchi, Hector's, etc. - curiousliving07, 11/07/2010
This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Great Lakes area!!! My friends and I love La Fuente and I love the #7 combo. You can't go wrong with their margaritas, chips, and salsa. A great place to meet a big group or go on a sassy date! - Rebecca, 12/04/2003

I must say from the time I have spent in Milwaukee, this mexican restaurant is one of the finest and most populated places in the area. - Joaquin J.Echeverry, 08/14/2002
One of the best and most popular mexican places in town located in the revitalized Walkers Point area on 5th. Be prepared to wait for a table but it is worth it and the margarita's are very intoxicating. - scott, 05/24/2000
