    Cazador or La Fuente

    Heading up the Ames way in a few hours to meet an old friend for dinner and then hittin the bars. We were thinking Mexican for food. Which one is better? Cazador or La Fuente? Back when I lived in Ames I never got to La Fuente and we only got to Cazador once or twice, that was probably about 7-8 years ago.


    Watch it man there's a beverage here!

    Re: Cazador or La Fuente

    Food at La Fuente has always been higher quality, IMO. I've gotten some awful service at Cazador, also.

    El Azteca is better than both combined. Best Margaritas too.

    I would have considered it madness to say anything but La Fuente, but I am liking some El Azteca lately.

    El Azteca is so popular that they are opening a 2nd location in North Ames in about a month. Brand new building. They have also expanded their current location by about 30%. I would say based on the fact that La Fuente hasn't painted lately is a pretty good indicator that the mexican food eating public in Ames overwhelmingly prefers El Azteca.

    I think El Azteca and La Fuente are basically the same, to me anyways, I just prefer La Fuente for some reason.

    You base your food choices on who has painted most recently?

    I don't think I understand the painting thing.

    True, you never find good food in small restaurants with only one location.

    well since they haven't painted, that means they're not making as much money, which means they're not getting much business.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.
