My family and I have eaten here about a dozen times and we've always had a good meal, worth the trip. Sit on the patio if during the Summer -

Don't know how some 'Reviewers' gave this place 4 & 5 Stars on the food...? Typical SHOPPING CENTER, Restaurant. Painted Concrete floors. Open to the roof. The NOISE just bounces around. Background noise makes it hard to carry on a conversation. And it just gets louder as more people come in. Don't know why I ordered Tamale's. In the Denver... More

Just visiting the area. The best thing about it was that it was filling. The worse thing is that the food lacked flavor. They need a mild sauce in my opinion. The service was alright. The average vote in our group of four to rate this restaurant was a 3. I'd give this one a miss next time because it... More

We've wanted to try this place for years, but never actually end up there for some reason. Not sure why now that we have. Went on a Friday night. It was busy, but didn't have to wait. Server was friendly and did a great job with keeping our water filled and making sure we didn't need anything else. It was... More

Just found time to try this place out for the first time. I will be moving to the area and we may be back often after this visit. To start off the salsa was spicy and I really liked it. I had the smothered burrito as I usually do so I can try the green chili. I really liked the... More

The food was good. The service was good. The margaritas start at $9 which seemed a bit pricey but maybe I need to get out more. The problem was the noise level. The musician was good but we had to shout at each other to be heard. Not conducive to a pleasant dining experience.

Was told about la fogata by a friend. The menu has good selection without being too broad. The margaritas were very good and only 2.00 due to a special. The salsa and chips were tasty. The food was very good and fresh. The menu catered to all price ranges. We enjoyed live music while eating outside in the comfy patio... More

I love going to La Fogata III. My son lives out there so we meet. The grandsons like the food as well. The green chili is one of the best I have found in a restaurant. I never turn down an invitation to La Fogata.

I have visited this restaurant on two different occasions. I was happy with both of my visits. The food was good and we were very happy with the service. My last visit was earlier this week. I had 2 tacos with beans and rice and the price was less than $7.50 - very reasonable. I will definitely return in the... More

A very nice meal, unhurried and quite good food and friendly service. Never a crowd so it is pretty easy to get into on the fly.
