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!

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.

Have eaten here many times and has a huge variety on the menu. It's a good place to go hang out with friends and relax, and they also do birthday songs. Never feel the need to rush out of here. Food is decent and the manager is wonderful if you get a change to meet him. They also serve Margaritas... More

This place is tucked away in an old strip mall but it's WELL worth finding. I've been here numerous times and every time it's been consistently good. Very clean with fantastic service. Tonight our server recommended the chefs special. It was fantastic! I highly recommend it. There's no way you'll find a better meal in Elkin.
