La Fuente Restaurant

La Fuente is the kind of old-school Mexican restaurant that cures your soul as soon as you walk through the door. The place is miniature, but between the boisterous waitstaff and the plates of food larger than your torso, you feel right at home immediately. Don’t come looking for modern takes on the tamale here. This is your cheese and sauce-doused enchilada combo paradise, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Order the El Rey burrito and have enough food for three separate meals.
