Great group gathering

We like to visit La Fogata every time we are in Denver. We hosted a large lunch there today for 30 people and the food and service was great (Maria was excellent). We love the food, service, and the new decor looks great.

I love any place where I can enjoy a margarita on a patio, and this is one of those places! Great marg selection, ver friendly and attentive staff, yummy chips and salsa and great entrees to boot! Can't go wrong, love the chili rellenos! Yum!

The atmosphere needs a major upgrade, would have been bummed if this was a romantic or high energy date. However their 10.00 marg (without the triple sec) was wonderful and the food rocked!!! Service was friendly and 1980's music was kinda fun.

You never know what you're going to get here. You could have great service and great food or you can get food that's just okay and crappy service. My husband loves the Mexican Hamburger.

This is a true Mexican Family Restaurant. Very Friendly staff. food is good and plenty of it. Might want to share your order unless you are very hungry. locations are hard to find but it is worth the search.

You cannot have a bad meal at La Fogata. We really like the one off Quincy and Tamarac. But the one on Evans and Holly is nice too. Try the giant shrimp cocktail for two with avocados and cilantro; more like a civeche. Superb. The service is fast and friendly; the margaritas divine and the shredded beef tacos delightful. I...

We had a large group and the service was great and the food was good… it was hot and spicy…just like the name implies! If you are needing to eat Gluten Free….be aware that there is not much here to eat. I had a grilled chicken salad without dressing. Should have asked for no seasoning on the chicken, I think...

I find the food and service here consistently good. Whether super crowded or slow the service is fast and friendly and the food comes out hot and fast. Recently had the guacamole salad followed by the chili rellenos. Great guac! Large portion. Very good rellenos with rice and beans.

Let me preface this review by saying that I asked for recommendations for a Mexican restaurant at the hotel I am staying at. The front desk clerk, or whatever her position is, told me that La Fogata was "authentic Mexican". Her exact words were "authentic Mexican". So my expectations were set artificially high. When I got to the restaurant, one... More

We enjoyed lunch here for the first time. The location is rather different as it is not like a normal restaurant. it is below some upstairs businesses. The food is tasty, served at a reasonable wait time. The staff is friendly and experienced. They offer a kids menu for the young people. The décor is simple and appears to have... More
