Love the appetizer Salsa and Chips here, a smooth spicy salsa that very few Mexican restaurants make. We also enjoy the combo meals and visit when we are in the area.

I ate a late dinner here while on a business trip. Service was quick (typical of Mexican restaurants) and the grilled chicken with peppers and onions tasty. The cheese sauce would have been better on the side for dipping as opposed to covering the plate. The menu is extensive yet no Mexican chicken soup which is a mainstay at most... More

La Fuente has been in Elkin for a good many years. Its a good place to go and they have Pacific Ocean! They get your food put quickly and it is good.

I never have had bad service in this restaurant and the food is wonderful. I find the atmosphere to be friendly and food still hot when it gets to your table.

We have been going to this Mexican restaurant off and on from the beginning. The food has always been delicious and the staff very friendly. I have never had a bad experience at this eatery and I would recommend it to anyone. Just had lunch there today and was not disappointed. We will definitely be going again.

If that's what you're after, along with not so tasty Mexican food, then this is your place. The service was pathetic and food is edible at best. I'm going to try the other places in town that have to be better.

This is the worst mexican restaurant in Elkin. They serve chicken that is bland and orange for some weird reason. Food has no flavor. Only reason I am giving them a 2 out of 5 is because their cheese dip is half decent. Avoid if possible and go somewhere else...

This little small town on the interstate is loaded with Mexican and Italian restaurants, and this one will not disappoint. It's in a location that might make you second guess but don't. The food is great!

A wonderful kids and adult atmosphere, with great servers, a hometown hospitality for visotors, great food for all people!

Decent food but terrible service. Waitstaff definitely never came around to check on us and if we wanted something, we had to flag somebody down. Draft beer tasted funny...noticed a nearby table wasn't really drinking theirs either. Typical "americanized Mexican food" ..nothing to write home about.
