Overpriced and terrible food

Decided to try this (the Tosa location) in preference to Habernaros for change; big mistake!! I ordered the chicken tamales. The shells tasted like soggy cardboard and the chicken tasted and looked like it came out of a can, which it probably did. I ordered two of the three flavors and could not tell the difference by taste or by appearance. On top of that, the prices are the highest of any Mexican restaurant I have been to in Milwaukee. We left vowing never to come back; avoid at all costs is my recommendation.

SERVICE CHARGE, cold, horrible

SERVICE CHARGE on the bill! Three of us dined with a bill of about $52, and then we noticed the $7 SERVICE CHARGE which we were told was for the "bus boys."!!! The steak tacos were like shards of overcooked meat, which tasted like days old meat and bland. The La Fuente Special was supposed to come with guacamole, instead we were charged $2.10. $2 each for soda. Chairs were like cafeteria chairs, which didn't seem to fit for the high prices. I will miss the shrimp soup. Go to a better, more reasonable place without a service charge like Botanas, Swayz, Cempazuchi, Hector's, El Fuego, etc.

La Fuente Review - Wauwatosa

I was very disappointed to have waited my time and money at this place.... 1. The Margaritas were ok 2. Sodas are NOT refillable (bad service) 3. The salsa tasted like it was out of a jar 4. The food was not even all that 5. The atmosphere was TACKY 6. The ""flautas"" were a complete joke 7. This food is far from authentic! It caters to American taste buds and is so far from bring authentic that they should be ashamed of themselves for claiming so! Aside from all of that, when I got home I noticed that the bill (that was divided between 2 credit cards) was billed onto mine twice! I knew that I hesitated going there for a reason; I should have stuck with my first instincts! Next time I will cook an AUTHENTIC meal myself!

Never a bad experience

I frequent La Fuente about once every other month and the food is always good and the service fair. I know they get swamped so I just tolerate it. As a vegetarian I love to go there because their veggie tacos with black beans and yellow rice are great - no animal fat! I still think they are one of the most reasonably priced for the quality.

More than once, I got dirty looks from the waitstaff... here's WHY...

So.. I'm vegan. I love La Fuente for their chips n salsa and rice and beans. That's about all I can eat there, so I usually just order "rice and beans."

I've been going there a lot lately and I've consistently gotten dirty looks from the waiter when they ask what I want and I reply with "rice and beans." They might think I'm being cheap, but I'm just VEGAN!

Worst Mexican Resturante in Milwaukee

Waitress told our table our food took so long because of my side of mole sauce. Funny thing was she forgot to bring me my mole sauce. The margaritas are no tasty at all and the food was just average. Do not wast your time here unless you can bring in your own food to their nice patio.

Horrible service

If you try to get a bite ot eat here or drink, expect to wait a long time. And when u get the bills, check it over a few times becz this place is notorious for adding gratuity, and other extras on the bill. This has happened numerous times when my colleagues and I dine there, so that is why we donnot go there anymore.
