Lively Mexican Cuisine

Restaurant, Bar

La Feunte has great Mexican food in a lively atmosphere. The menu lists vegan and vegetarian plates that far exceed most Mexican restaurants in the area. Specify the black beans when ordering -- the pintos are not vegetarian. Make reservations or arrive extra early as this is one of the busiest restaurants in Milwaukee.

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.

Take National Ave. to 5th Street, go north on 5th past La Perla, and it's about 2 blocks down, on the left. Several parking lots available, validate your parking ticket at the restaurant.
