My husband and I had passed La Fogata on Evans multiple times. We finally decided to try it a couple of weekends ago. We sat down and were immediately served fresh chips and salsa which was some of the best salsa I have tasted in a Denver restaurant. My husband ordered the fajitas and they were very tasty. I had...

Everything is good here. Especially the seafood. Good happy hour 3-6 on drinks and food. Great patio.

This is our neighborhood restaurant. Our family walks over about once a month to get our fix. The food is consistently good and the servers are consistently friendly. Their house salsa is very good (fresh, a hint of cilantro, and the mild heat allows one to appreciate the tomatoes without overwhelming them with heat) and I especially enjoy the carnitas.

Simple and delicious Mexican food at a family run business. Free chips and salsa, and generous portions of food. I Seis, a combination plate of ground beef taco, cheese enchilada, guacamole tostada and a Chile relleno, with rice and refried beans. My wife raved about the grilled fish tacos which come with a special mustard sauce and a tomatillo salsa.... More

Although there were very few reviews on this restaurant for the most part they were positive. The restaurant itself seemed fine, the staff was courteous enough, but that's the best of it. The menu said award winning fajitas, not sure what award that would have been. They looked old, overcooked, and were flavorless. My kids had a taco and a... More

It's been a long time since we went to La Fogata. We had considered this restaurant to be on our "No!" List. Food at that time was bad, second only to the service. However, that location has long since closed. The one on Quincy Ave is the re-birth. And what a good addition to the local mexican restaurant scene it... More

Whenever we are in Denver, we go to La Fogata. It has fair prices for food that is very good. I tried something different this last time and wasn't as satisfied as I usually am. Next time, I will have to go back to my old favorite: the Mole con Pollo which I can highly recommend. Staff are very friendly... More

Thank you TripAdvisor!! We wanted to try a new place, and the reviews for this place were 100% on the money!! For a busy Friday night, we were seated within 20 mins of arrival. Greeted by friendly staff, seated by friendly staff, and service was amazing, despite being full! We ordered the Jumbo Shrimp Fajitas and the Huevos con Chorizo.... More

There is a Micro Center computer store right behind this restaurant, and that's been our destination every time my wife and I drive right past La Fogata. Well, we were hungry on this particular day, and said, "Why not? We're here..." It's hard to learn that you've been making a BIG mistake all these years, because we noticed them, but... More

We were looking for a good local Mexican restaurant and we were not disappointed! Will definitely return in the future. Highly recommend the steak quesadilla. Prices are no higher than pueblo, and friendly staff to boot.
