It was great to be back in town to visit family! And they chose this place eat at. I love the choices on their menu and even the daily specials. We were seated quickly, got chips and salsa, drinks and our orders taken reasonably fast. We also appreciated the quick service from the kitchen with our main coarses. But the... More

We ordered burritos and tamales. The food came out fairly quickly. The tamales while home made, were a bit dry. The daily special was nice. There was plenty of food and services was above average. The front greeter was very friendly and quick to respond. Overall it was a good meal plenty of food at a very reasonable price.

I had heard good things about this restaurant but I was not happy with the food. It just wasn't as good as other Mexican restaurants that I have eaten at. The atmosphere was okay but not my favorite. I don't think I will go back.

Not what we are used too, must be spoiled with good Mexican food. Sorry we didn't go to Taco Bell. Waitress was very nice and helpful, but that couldn't make up for the disappointing food.

Just ate at the La Fountain in West Valley. I ordered the Steak and Eggs. After eating about 1/3 of the steak, I peeled back the folded over portion of the steak, and it was completely raw. The steak was bright red and cold. I informed the Server and she took the meal away and apologized. At that point, I... More

I've never had bad food here. It's not something I'd write home to mom about, but I definitely prefer it over a lot of other places if I'm in the mood for Mexican. The staff can be a little inattentive at times, but the food comes out hot and tastes good!

Some people rave about their food but I haven't been too terribly impressed. It's a good place to take a large group.

In the slc area visiting the family so dining out was best for us. Still a good place to enjoy a variety of Mexican food. Being seated was fast, getting drink a little longer, but the 8 meals took a little longer and we're frexh, hot and delicious. Unfortunately the drink refills again took longer than needed. Try this place... More
