mmm... mmmm... mmmm... – OMG food was so delicious this place... i cant believe how much food you get to for the price!! everyone needs to come here atleast once... really cool atmosphere too!!
Dirty dishes – This place serves people with dirty dishes I was just there and they gave me a mug for coffee full of lipstick I was not wearing any lipstick neither was my daughter. I can't believe this place it was also early for breakfast.i grossed out so I didn't eat my food. I would never go there again.
Best in valley... – I've been coming here for about 2 years now, and I have never written a review for a restaurant before. But I have to deviate from the norm and tell about this place. This is hands down the best mexican food in S.F. Valley and I would dare anyone to say different. They have an expansive menu that is reasonably price. I would say under-priced for the quality of ingredients used. I'm a certified chef, and in my opinion their gringo-style carne asada burrito is the bees knees. Even after the next day...just throw some salsa on it and crema...wow I'm getting hungry now. Seating can be a hassle, but its definetly worth it. To sim it up, this place rules...
Difficult to find better – I've been going to Las Fuentes for years now. It is one of the better Mexican food restaurants in the city, much less the Valley.
Las Fuentes is not in a strip mall, or shopping center, or a restaurant row. It is inconveniently located between two automotive garages in a highly congested area in Reseda. Parking also can not be your friend here. There really isn't any, and you need to grab a space where you can.
Once you make it into the restaurant itself, you'll usually wait in line for a bit, and see a large varied menu of Mexican food on the wall to order from. You'll notice prices are quite reasonable for most dishes, even their dinner plates. (I recommend their tacos and burritos.)
You do have to find your own seating, which when its busy, can be a hassle. You also have to get your drinks, and pick-up your own food when they call your number, but all-in-all, not a big deal when you receive your food. The salsa bar is one of the best I've seen and is constantly being cleaned and refreshed.
All of the dishes they serve are excellent quality, and if anything, they give you too much of it! Meat and quality ingredients are never skimped on, and in comparison to what you pay you'll realize how good a deal this really is.
They have already expanded the restaurant once, and its still crowded pretty much all the time The staff is always friendly and personable, and you'll always leave satisfied.
You'll never go anywhere else for Mexican food -even Mexico! – This is the best Mexican food around. So good that you will see people from Mexico dining with you. It's wonderful and fresh. My family and I can't have Mexican food anywhere else. Nothing measures up to Las Fuentes' quality, freshness, salsa (yum) and the great family who runs it.
The best carne asada EVER! – No other mexican restaurant compares to this place. Everything on the menu is amazing.
Easy in and out – Las Fuentes is the ideal place to have a delicious, convenient and atmospheric lunch. The food is plentiful, the décor is bright and cheery and the service is fast and reliable. I like the fact that you can order and the counter and pay when you order so there is no fighting over the breakdown of the bill at the end.
If you plan on eating lunch with a group of friends you better come early because Las Fuentes tends to fill up quickly. Sometimes you might have to stock the other patrons to see when they are getting ready to leave just to get a table. There are a few outside tables but the atmosphere inside is much nicer then the Vanowen traffic.
Great Tacos! – This place is hidden but check it out because the tacos are the BEST! Also, try the chicken soup they make.
Best Mexican Food in the Valley, specially for a restaurant. Can't find it better then this place unless you make it yourself.
Perfect Ambiance, adorable inside, great Mexican food (location is not in the nicest area). – First timer and was surprised by the adorable setting!!! Although the restaurant was not in the nicest area, the restaurant, itself is SUPER cute restaurant! Whether you are on a date or out with the buds (GIRLS NIGHT!), this place is so colorful, bright, and cheery! The service I received was excellent - smiles from the staff! Got helped right away. Food = excellent...tastes quite authentic. Fresh ingredients. Love the burritos - carne asada style! Fresh Guacamole too! Great chips as well. Loved the beans and rice. Burritos were quite large, by the way...so you can take some home for later midnight snacks! Delish! Next time I'm in the mood for Mexican food, I'm so going here! :D More authentic than Hugo's Tacos (not healthier, but better tasting!!!). They take orders to go as well!!!
