We were looking for a quick easy place for some home cooked Mexican food and pulled out our TripAdvisor app. La Fogata was a nice find. Combination plates were good and reasonably priced. Dining area is pretty tiny and crowded. Parking is difficult too. But the people were gracious and the was good. Not the best Mexican food ever, but... More

Our large group was staying at Pelican Hill and we decided to bring food in to our villa for a buffet. La Fogata did a great job catering and Norman was wonderful to work with. The spread of Mexican food was fresh and delicious but of course the chicken was a standout. Everything was packaged well for rewarming and the... More

I have been a loyal customer at this restaurant for several years now. The food here is very fresh and tasty. The staff is very friendly, especially Norman! I highly recommend this restaurant when in beautiful Corona del Mar!

I can't say enough about La Fogata! For about 10 years, our family (and a growing number of friends) have been enjoying their delicious and healthy meals, their casual atmosphere and wonderful presentations! The salsa bar is awesome as they offer the best options beyond just CdM! They have done large catering orders and the owner is open to preparing... More

This is a great place to have a healthy dinner. They have a great selection of grilled veggies, salads and other options including chicken and fish. We are vegan so we really enjoy the food.

Believe it or not, I get steak here. The food has been good. The prices are good for the area.The staff is friendly. It's in a grocery store shopping center and lacks atmosphere. You wouldn't take someone you wanted to impress here. It's just solid food at a good price.

This was our second visit to La Fogata and although they have 'chicken' in their title, there are many many vegetarian options for those of you looking for a veggie restaurant. This is some of the best healthy Mexican food anywhere, well worth eating at. It's fresh, homemade, and organic. Simply wonderful!! The atmosphere isn't anything special, but the food... More

Excellent rotisserie chicken. Great salsa bar. Tucked away in the Albertsons shopping center. Small outside patio with a nice ocean breeze.

We went here based on other Trip Advisor reviews. My husband liked his fish taco. I felt my chicken taco was blah tasting. We also ordered nachos. We poured lots of fresh salsa on our meal. The food was adequate but it just didn't have any flavor, in my opinion. The place was very crowded, so obviously others enjoyed the... More

manager Norman is the key here. He makes everyone feel like the most valued customer and remembers names, family's etc. He loves to be involved in the food and it shows. The freshest, most delicious, healthy tasting Californian food around. Always a must when we visit, at least once, and preferably, a daily stop!! Without question, the best salsa on... More
