Ok Mexican

I was looking forward to an amazing Mexican experience here. We had very very bland guacamole with chips and simple margaritas. Would suggest looking elsewhere for mouthwatering Mexican.

Great spot to go for casual food and drinks. Casual and fun for a group to hang out. Margaritas are amazing.

After a long day at the Del Mar Fairgrounds our group (9) hit En Fuego's for dinner and drinks! Cool seating area with flowers and beautiful landscaping all around us. Two groups that were by us were very loud and enjoyed one to many drinks. Food selection was very good. Pricing was very affordable. Fajitas were excellent. Service was not... More

After walking past several upscale restaurants in Del Mar, California, we chose En Fuego Cantina &... More

It's casual, and it's all indoor/outdoor terrace (with heaters). If you go fairly early in the evening they have happy hour fish tacos!

Large, multi-level bar/restaurant that reminded me of some of the better semi-outdoor restaurants in Mexico. Busy and noisy but full of energy and the food and drinks were good.

Cool atmosphere, but the food was lacking. Service was solid. There are a TON of great mexican food restaurants in San Diego, I would not classify this as one of them. Carne Asada was dry, tamale was decent, enchilada was bland. If they picked up the flavor the place has a lot of potential. Again, service and atmosphere were very... More
