Although we were staying downtown, this 3-4 mile drive was worth it! The atmosphere was great. Warm chips and salsa. The guacamole made to order was outstanding along with the Fuego salad. I, personally, was not a huge fan of the tortilla soup but the rest of the meal was outstanding. Reasonably priced and delicious strawberry margaritas as well! Passing... More

I don't get why this place is so popular. I have eaten there several times because friends like it. The food is not that great. Overhead lighting is cold and not welcoming. La Cocina is the best Mexican in Mobile.

In a town which I refer to... More

We have a great experience every time we visit this restaurant. Having lived in Texas for a few years, we feel like we know good Mexican food, and this is it! We have yet to have something on the menu that we didn't like, and the service has also been very good.

First of all Mexican food is one of my favorites. Fuego takes it to a whole new level. Fuego has the best quality and taste of any Mexican food I have ever eaten, and I have eaten it all over the country and in Mexico. If you are ready for your taste buds to be blown away and you love... More

This restaurant had a great feel. I was pleased to see that they had vegan/vegetarian options. I wanted the veggie fajitas, but was told by the waitress they were cooked on the same grill as the meat, so I opted for the vegetable enchiladas no cheese, the table side guacamole and the Patron margarita. The margarita was one of the... More
