The only reason El Fuego even gets two stars is because the patio is really great, and that's about the extent of it. I had been craving fajitas, so that's exactly what I ordered, and I was extremely disappointed. The chicken wasn't grilled, it seemed like it might of been boiled, and it was slimy. That's where my meal started and ended. My boyfriend ordered a torta, which he enjoyed, but it came with french fries that were cooked in old oil. I didn't complain about my food, but when we asked for the bill we were informed that we could only pay with cash because there was a power outage somewhere near the restaurant. I understand that's out of their control, but we didn't have any cash, and I feel like she could've informed us a little sooner. Our waitress then told us to go use the ATM at the front of the restaurant which also wasn't working because of the power outage. At this point the manager came over and asks to write down our credit card information which I wasn't having. So finally the manager agreed to let us run to an atm, which was two towns over, but she also demanded that we let her take photocopies of our ids. I feel like it is situations like those where you comp a meal, but apparently not. We drove to get the money and came back and paid. Extremely poor service, food, and management.
They know how to make a mean margarita! Wowzers! was I pretty muffed up after like 2 drinks...and i can put some away but that time we really had a nice night and the drinks were for wisconsinites! I love their menu selection and if u want it a certain way they make it to your preference. Prices are fairly reasonable for the entrees but I don't understand how they price their chips/salsa/sour cream at such a higher price...when asked to order chips/salsa..after he told me the balance was like 23 bucks..it ended up being like 30-32 bucks for everything and thought wow..that's a little steep.... or extra sour cream/guac. i think they over price for these items...and u get like a fork full. Their green chili hot sauce= amazing!..and I really love their rice....really good and nicely done..not all mushy or crunchy(not done)...its perfect..but other than that..i like the atmosphere and patio seating.
AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD. THE ATMOSPHERE ALSO CONDUCIVE WITH THE MEXICAN CULTURE, PLAYS HARMONIC MEXICAN MUSIC IN THE BACKGROUND AND THE DECOR/COLORS THE SAME. HOMEMADE CHIPS WITH 2 OF THEIR HOMEMADE SAUCES OFFERED. THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE SPICINESS. THE MEAL PRICING I EXPERIENCED WAS REMARKABLE. FOR EXAMPLE, I HAD A DELICIOUS CHICKIEN BURRITO LUNCH WHICH CONSISTED OF HOMEMADE SOUP, LG BURRITO WITH MELTED CHEECE AND SAUCE, RICE, HOMEMADE GUACAMOLE AND SOUR CREAM. ALL FOR $5.00. THAT'S RIGHT, $5.00. ALL THEIR LUNCHES RANGED AROUND THE $5.00 PRICE. SUPPER OF COURSE IS PRICED SLIGHTLY HIGHER, AS IS ALL PLACES. THE WAITRESS I HAD WAS VERY COURTEOUS AND HELPFUL. THE BAR HAS SPECIALS 2 FOR 1 MARGARITA NIGHTS, ETC. THEY DO MAKE EXCELLENT STRAWBERRY MARGARITA'S. YMMM. MY FAMILY AND I WILL DEFINITELY BE ON-GOING CUSTOMERS OF LA IGAUNA LOCA.
Use to be my go to Mexican restaurant for a year. The old wait staff knew me as chef since I always come in in my chef attire. Can't beat the price on the corn tacos. Always order 4 Steak tacos. Use to go every week but the cooks are inconsistent. Food doesn't taste the same and newer wait staff take forever to refill my water when it's not busy. Spend more time talking to each other.
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!
I've been ordering from this place for about 2 years now and have never been disappointed! Totally underrated, everyone is always nice, even with complicated orders! Highly recommend if you want good quality, authentic Mexican
Looking for traditional food to please my wife's Hispanic appetite while visiting Milwaukee. The food was great. We tried alittle of each others and also the appetizer, avacado wraps, breath taking.
always have had good food, good prices, good service and the ..dog meet claim ..who are you working for that's not true and its sick if yp would let my abuse report go through I would report you
I love Mexican food and have high expectations.. The chips were really good.. I ordered enchiladas and they were bland..and It was a bit pricey for Mexican food also...
Is this review a joke? You gave them a poor review because so many people wanted to eat there you had to wait on your birthday? Wow.
