Consistent in Their Delivery

Food is always good and sometimes great. Service is the same. An out of the way neighborhood restaurant will a regular group of customers. Usually busy and a happy place to be. Wehave been four or five times and are always satisfied.

We just recently tried Fuego for the first time, and were highly impressed!! Not my highest recommendation on a family place, although they do have a kids menu. Positive: -outstanding Mexican food -moderate pricing -nice decor! -good service/staff -Kids menu Negative: -not the best for kids -much of the food is spicy (but still really good) -can get very busy!!

They were very accommodating for the allergies in our group. The guacamole made at the table was delicious. Service was very good. The decor was festive. Try all the different salsas.

Fuego is a locally owned neighborhood eatery with a good location in an upscale midtown area. Alll of those are positives. We haven't visited Fuego in a number of years so we decided to give them a try as a possibility for our regular 8-10 person Friday night dinner group. They were busy, but not slammed so there was no... More

Co-worker took me there for lunch. The chips and salsa were great. I ordered the Enchilada Suiza b/c it was the lunch special. It was terrific. There was a small scoop of some kind of corn hash that I could have eaten all day. Will definitely return

I love their guacamole, probably some of the best I've ever had. And their salsa is excellent. Great place to go for fresh Mexican. A little loud, but I think we were there at Happy Hour.

I was introduced to Fuego a few years back when I worked around the corner from it, and I have been many times. Every time has been a great experience. Good atmosphere, good food, and good service. Born and raised in California, I am picky about my Mexican food and this is good stuff! I love their shredded chicken soft... More
