For an authentic Mexican food taste, a unique atmosphere, and friendly service, try La Fuente Restaurant in Tucson. This Tucson Original restaurant serves up big, hearty meals along with a variety of tequilas, margaritas, and specialty drinks. La Fuente is the perfect place for parties, family dinners, gatherings with friends, or a unique date night.
After being seated, guests are served delicious, mildly spicy salsa and warm tortilla chips for the table, but ordering one of the offered appetizers is highly recommended. For a meal starter that will stop you in your tracks, try the Queso Fundido. The appetizer, which is literally melted cheese served on a skillet, is served with delicious, warm tortillas. Guests can add Chorizo or shrimp for an extra cost. Dip chips or tortilla in the gooey, cheesy appetizer for a taste that is muy bueno!
For a hot meal that is made for the hungriest of guests, try the chicken fajitas. Served with sautéed onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes, the steamy skillet adds a unique twist to the typical chicken fajita. The meal, also served with ranchero beans, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, and warm tortillas, also comes in beef or shrimp.
Not a fajita person? The Spinach Enchiladas are a true La Fuente gem. The meal consists of two fresh spinach enchiladas topped with a mild green chile sauce and cheese, could easily become your new favorite Mexican food dish. The meal is served with white rice and beans, and adds a unique flavor to the vegetarian dish.
If your stomach can handle more food at the end of the meal, the flan is an A-plus finish. Served with light, fluffy whipped cream, the custardy dessert is a small bit of Mexican food heaven.
A trip to La Fuente is incomplete without sampling their well-known margarita collection. The seven different margaritas, including the GOLD Margarita, and the FLAVOR Margarita (strawberry, banana, peach, or mango), are served by the glass or in a pitcher for the table.
Aside from having a wonderful selection of delicious Mexican eats, La Fuente’s rich history makes it a Tucson hotspot. The restaurant, established in 1959, is decorated with authentic Mexican artifacts from all over Mexico. The decorations, authentic cuisine, and live Mariachi music Thursday through Sunday, all help to make La Fuente Tucson’s favorite Mexican food destination.
