Not a great place to go if you're not a fan of tons of onions and vegetable oil. Since I am not the biggest fan of Mexican food in general, I do find la Fuente's the most tolerable of them all. Their salsa is delicious, their chips are good. I usually get a vegetarian burrito with black beans and no onions. The rice is pretty much flavorless, so eating it with hot sauce is much needed.

True they have more vegan options than other Mexican restaurants - but I don't think the quality is there.

This place is great for people who want the kitsch of an urban Mexican restaurant. I've never been impressed with the food and every single time I've gone there, I've been surrounded by obnoxious people who don't have inside voices.

Best Mexican food in the city, as La Fuente combines good food, good service, and a good atmosphere. It seems like all the other Mexican places have only one (perhaps two) of those qualities. I've never had a bad meal here, so order whatever strikes your fancy. Definitely try to go on a nice day so you can sit outside, which makes the experience that much more enjoyable.

Best Mexican in the city. The selection of vegetarian plates are impressive, and most of the items on the vegetarian menu are vegan by default. The tacos de vegetales are incredible. Red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, garlic, all sauteed and served in soft flour shells, with sides of delicious, saucy black beans and cilantro-flecked rice. This is my favorite plate, but the veggie burrito is also pretty good, and the guacamole is amazing. The only complaint I have about this place is that the vegetarian items seem to be more expensive than the rest of the menu.
