I don't know why La Puente doesn't have 1000 amazing reviews. It is our family restaurant, and we love it. Smothered Bean and Cheese Burrito, smothered with cheese and onions, with a side of rice and beans. Ask for that, and life is amazing.

I always order the smothered burritos with cheese and onions. I also order a side salad and mix it in with the smothered burritos. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant.

The food is very good and they serve it up fast. Almost to fast if that's possible. The service was great, the best thing is the value. We spent more on our breakfast this morning than we did for Dinner here.
