great mexican food

the prices are good,food is tasty,the only advice I would have for people visiting for the first time would be to put a hold on your food to enjoy the chips and salsa,otherwise your food will arrive five minutes after you order it.

Nothing from the Sysco truck here - this is the real deal. You are always made to feel welcome, seated quickly. The chips and Salsa are excellent. Luckily the food comes right away or you could easily fill up on them! The food is always fresh, hot and fantastic!! I've been going back regularly for over 15 years!!

This place is a great Mexican restaurant for everyone. They are so wonderful. The owners always go out of their way to have "our table" ready for us, all set with drinks and salsas. The food is very large portions and you can't go wrong with an enchilada, taco, rice beans for $6.99. Bathrooms are always clean and smell good.... More

Our neighbor recommended this restaurant. We were disappointed as it did not meet our expectations. The meals were lacking presentation and spices, we had the green and red sauce pork and both were not to our expectation. Their small salad was just that, small, a handful of bagged salad on a small dessert plate. The dressing appeared to have been... More

I have only dined here a few times and it always smelled like cleaning supplies and sanitizer. In fact, the last time I was there, the water glass had a funny smell to it like they needed to changed the cleaning solution. I always felt like there was sanitizer residue on the glass. Will never eat here again.

Good Mexican Food along with good service. You can always find consistant good food here and they will cater to your larger groups with a nice room for larger crowds. This is a good place for an affordable family function...and they will provide top notch services and make everyone ...even kids...happy in your party~!

Usually go here when co-workers choose for lunch hour. Every time I've gone food is bland or greasy. Service isn't too bad, though I was short-changed once and had incorrect bill another time. With so many choices in town, pick another.

Lot's of Mexican restaurants in town. We have about four that we go to. Of them we like La Fogata the best. All of the Mexican restaurants that we go to are similar, friendly casual and good food at a reasonable price.
