Best Mexican in Mobile

Fuego is the absolute best Mexican in Mobile (and Baldwin county), in my opinion. I've lived here my whole life and Mexican is my favorite food type, so I've visited a lot of Mexican restaurants. Fuego's ingredients are always fresh, flavorful, and delicious. In my many times visiting this... read more

I visited here while in town for Christmas vacation on the recommendation of a family member. We visited on a Monday evening. There were a couple of large parties in the restaurant when we arrived, but the restaurant was only about half full. The service while very nice was painfully slow. It took an hour and a half to order... More

Okay let me begin by saying I have been to this restaurant multiple times and it's ALWAYS exceptional! That being said, tonight was a terrible experience. I would like to consider it an exception to the rule because they have always been good. We arrived tonight, on a Monday, around 5:30 p.m. We were immediately seated and given menus along... More

Went to Fuego on the evening before Thanksgiving. Arrived at 7:25. They were open, but when we said we wanted a table for 4, we were told that they were closing at 7:30 and would not seat us. Why in the world would you be open but not seat people after 7 PM? The people who run this restaurant have... More

I walked away thinking, this is going to be the best mexican food ever for that price! And on some points, I wasn't... More

We had for appetizer Queso La Flama Blanca( Mexican Cheese Dip) Excellant! Next we had the Chile Verde. I highly recommend it. Along with the meal we had the Fuego House... More

Was in the mood for chips and salsa and found this via my Trip Advisor AP. Was not disappointed! The chips were great and the lunch was awesome. Hubs had the big beef burrito and here's a pic to prove it. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner. Trent was a great waiter.

Probably nothing is as contentious as how to define good Mexican food. Fuego makes no bones about what they are: Cal-Mex and pretty good as such. I say this as someone who moved here from CA after having lived in NM. My rating is based on the service: confused and very slow on a not-so-busy night. After a long delay... More

Visited Fuego 8/29/15 during the period after lunch but before dinner. There were 4 of us and we had a variety of menu items. Two in the party ordered the Ancho Red Pepper Glazed Churrasco, which was good - the potatoes in this dish were excellent. The third party ordered the shrimp and steak fajitas which came out sizzling, and... More
