Went with some colleagues from work and we were all disappointed - food was very average - not what you expect in this part of the world.

Have been to En Fuego many many times over the years we have visited Del Mar. We live in the desert southwest so we know Mexican food. En Fuego has flavorful well prepared dishes (guacamole, fish tacos, carne asada, seafood, etc. ) Great drink and tequila list. Friendly knowledgable servers. Great evening bands during the summer. Downstairs bar is fun.... More

El Fuego tops them all for taste and for service and atmosphere. Even better than Rosita's in Barstow and we travel 3000 miles to eat there. Previous reviewer... More

We went here for happy hour on friday afternoon with a group. Sat in the out door patio in the middle of the restaurant and it was a fun happy place. Food was decent and prices were really good.

We (the DMYC) held our 20th pre opening day (Race Track) party at En Fuego also celebrating En Fuego's 20th anniversary of their opening. We all had a blast and look for continued friendship with the En Fuego crew.

This was by far the best dinner we have had on our week long stay in Southern California. Service was excellent and the happy hour prices and food were great!
