This is a large restaurant with several dining areas on two levels. Very laid back atmosphere, and maybe the best place in town if you're just looking to catch up with friends, knock back a few drinks, and munch some chips. But the food was very disappointing. It arrived suspiciously quickly, less than five minutes after we ordered, so it... More

The décor could use some sprucing up. It seems to be a popular place for friends to meet. We ordered the Nacho Con Queso with a substitution of grilled beef instead of the chicken. It was delicious with the blending of the various cheeses. The Sangria was also very good. They were short staffed that mid afternoon so service was... More

We ate in the cosier wine bar section rather than the noisier downstairs or chilly restaurant, and the atmosphere was fun (though the big TV was a bit distracting). Nice tortilla chips and salsa served with our drinks, but the meals were a little average. My shrimp salad came with only four prawns and my partner's carnitas meal was just... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times. More recently we have been going for happy hour. The food and drinks at Happy Hour are reasonably priced. The service is good. The places rocks, as many locals come there at that time.

My first time ever writing a negative review, but I think this is important. The $80 cash we put on the bill mysteriously vanished. The waitress and manager were not apologetic at all. We had a group of 3 couples and split the tab. One couple put in the $80 cash and the other 2 couples split the remainder. When... More

En Fuego Cantina & Grill what people don't know is that the happy hour is fantastic. Check the menu. Also, on Wednesday's, you can drink very good wine for $6.00 a glass all day long. The good stuff, that's right. For doggie lovers, you can sit outside with your pet or even go to the downstairs area that is open... More

With the abundance of delicious Mexican Food in Southern CA, why do people go to En Fuego? Maybe for Margaritas or Cervesas, which mask the poor quality of the food. We ordered chips and guacamole, they were mediocre. Our entrees were a Taco Salad, a Chicken Burrito, and Tacos Del Mar. Of those three, the tacos were the best. They... More

I worked with Tanya and her staff for a corporate group event and they were all amazing. Very accommodating and willing to go above and beyond to make our retreat a fantastic experience for our guests. The food is awesome, location is perfect, and the overall experience for visitors is excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant for any family or... More

This place has a nice outside ambiance with great margaritas. There is a cute wine bar connected to it as well as a downstairs bar. It has a fun, friendly atmosphere. If you are single the downstairs bar is a great place to mingle. The food is good and a tad pricey for the quality but their Taco Tuesday menu... More
