Good mexican for the price... – It's really not as bad as some claim it to be. Sure the atmosphere is a little "outdated", but the food is good. Those who claim it's too "greasy" are most likely ordering the smothered burritos full of cheese and sauces...naturally a greasy meal. I did not find their meals all that greasy, even after ordering their cheese enchiladas. However, mexican food is not exactly the healthiest and is more likely to be greasy considering their recipes. Comes with the territory. Their sauce is definitely a basic red enchilada sauce, not much flare, but for the price and the amount of food you get, who can complain? Their salsa is fairly good. Those who compare it to ketchup baffle me, since it's nothing of the sort. Being a Chef myself, I actually found their food to be rather good. It is no Red Iguana, however it still has it's perks and I find myself going there with friends at least every couple of months for some good, cheap, fast mexican food.
Great Chile Verde! – It is the greatest authentic Mexican Food in the Salt Lake Valley! I have read the previous reviews and someone mentioned that it was greasy and too much cheese. That's how I like it, the more the cheese and the grease it is the better. These poeple must be health freaks. La Puente is the best around. They have larger portions for the same price as La Frontera. A smothered burrito with cheese is priced at a nice low price which is under $5. Where else can you get a large portion with that kind of price. No where around here!
just not mexican – If your looking for an expensive mamerican mexican dining experience, come here. Did not experience any authentic mexican flavors in any food. I got the chiecken soft taco. It was chicken, cheese, lettuce and a flour tortilla. I had to squirt the salsa on it out of the ketchup bottle. The ala carte menu is also cheaper than if you buy the meal. 2 enchilladas and rice is .15 cents cheaper when you buy ala carte. This place does not serve anything that like mexican food. Service is slow.
grease pit – the husband & i met up here on a blind date so you think we'd go back often but no way. everything is smothered in greasy cheese and not very authentic. the lighting is way too bright and the place is noisy.
The food's not exactly authentic, but it's perfect for hungry Salt Lakers. – The Scene
A cross between a typical diner and a Mexican cantina. Wide booths with vinyl seats tempt stuffed patrons to lie down for a nap.
Whopping portions of rich Mexican food with Americanized flavors. Just about everything is topped with generous amounts of cheese. If you've got a hearty appetite, go for the small combination. Despite the name, it's a lot of food--cheese enchilada, tostada, taco and burrito. Add chile verde, rice, beans and a warm flour tortilla, and you've got a large combination. Head in on a weekend morning for a medium-sized bowl of menudo--tripe and hominy soup, served with onions, limes and oregano. If you're not so adventurous, try the chorizo con huevos--eggs scrambled with spiced sausage.
Visiting – I am From Los Angeles. I was visiting my Boyriend in Salt Lake, and he suggested going to La Puente.
The food was pretty good, and the atmosphere was cool. It was pretty good hangover food. I can't say it was the best. I am Mexican, and I know what authentic mexican food should taste like.
great value – consistently delicious and reasonably priced, a very good value for the price
Very Very good – This restaurant has been around for years. Very good food. Always friendly. Good Margaritas. Fast service. The food is outstanding, along with home made chips and salsa
Smothered Burrito – I really enjoy their food, they make it hot and that is what is so great. The salsa and chips, and the enchiladas, burritos! mmm good!
Areba – The food is great, The ambience is good, what else can I say.
