Really great salsa with some kick. Overpriced menu. We had the steak fajitas and the steak was pretty tough but the dish did have good flavor. Great margaritas but bar drinks are pretty pricey. Shared steak fajitas with extra meat, a margarita and a beer was $40

We enjoy the fact that La Fogata is close by; we like to support "neighborhood" shops and restaurant. However, the food is kind of average. The wait staff is very friendly. We visit about once a month. If you come by on a weekend, the noise level might be more than want you want to hear. Our last visit had... More

Great menu and food is prepared well. The Cancun tacos used to be my favorite, but they changed the fish filet and it's not my favorite now. We haven't been back.

We went on a Thursday night. The place is loud and the noise bounces off the walls but we still enjoyed it. Our server was a sweet lady. We asked her what her favorite dishes were and ordered them. We had the taco borrachos and fajita burrito. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his tacos . My burrito was amazing!! I don't... More

We've driven past La Fogata III many times and finally decided to stop in and give it a try. It wasn't very busy when we walked in, so the hostess was able to seat us right away. She did not leave a good first impression. She didn't smile at all, and she didn't talk to us. She led us to... More

Dropped in for lunch. Had a great margarita. I had the carnitas street tacos, 3 for $12. Carnitas was tasty and the portions were great. The wife had a huge chicken burrito, lots of very flavorful chicken. Tab was $45

Great Mexican restaurant and atmosphere. The dinning area is large and can handle groups if you call a head. The bar area is up front with TV's and the patio is nice too. The food is reasonably priced and the staff is very friendly. We have eaten there at least 10 times and will go back!

Slow service, food wasn't fresh, nor did it taste good. When I voiced my opinion to one of the wait staff, they didn't care at all, only offered to take my plate - which had one bite out of it. $14 meal, thrown in the trash, honestly, where it belonged. Meals are over priced, and your $10+ meal doesn't even... More

Seafood Enchilada was sour, fake seafood and uncooked salad shrimp. Food microwaved, and all items same temperature. Staff not very friendly. You will be better off visiting the Chick-fil-A next door.

I was extremely disappointed in this restaurant. My husband and I have been driving pass this place for a couple of months and decided to try it for lunch on a Saturday. I was extremely disappointed. The restaurant atmosphere is set up like a bar/warehouse. It was loud and kind of run down. The server was not very welcoming. We... More
