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.

Staff was attentive to our needs and checked on us frequently. Easy in and out and seems to be ADA compliant. Great Menu for good selections. Children are welcome. Requested their web site be...

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.

I had dinner here with my family in October. I liked the atmosphere and the employees made dinner better than it really was. I would go back here again.

The service was good but the food was not. The restaurant was very bright with no ambiance what so ever, no music and the waiters rushing around made you feel even more unwelcome. It was a very bad experience.

I have been coming to La Fogata ever since they were in the shopping center across the street. It has been our favorite place for Mexican food in Hemet. We live in Menifee and would like another La Fogata here. We need a great Mexican food restaurant here..
