Great margaritas & fun Mariachi!

We went in a Friday and were serenaded by a lively mariachi band that even took requests. The margarita on the rocks was excellent. The fajitas were very tasty, good chips and salsa but the enchilada was just ok. I would definitely go again to try something other than the enchilada.

If the locals hangout here they need to experience real Mexican food. This place was packed on a Tuesday night and I have no clue why. They charge you for more chips and salsa, they charge you for more tortillas when they don't give you enough to start with. Your food is not good enough to be doing this. It... More

Went with my family when they were visiting from out of town. I'm not an expert on how "authentic" the food is, but I can tell you that everything we ordered was fresh, flavorful, and delicious. Prices are reasonable with nice big portions. Service is friendly and very attentive. Went during happy hour and loved the 2-for-1 house margaritas -... More

Went with a group of 14 people. Staff were welcoming and very attentive. The food is very good. Had their skirt steak and it was very tasty. Was there last year also and the food is consistent.

We eat here at least once a month. Food is consistently excellent and prices are very reasonable. We have tried many different items on the menu and have never been disappointed. The sopapillas are a must for dessert!

We go there often when we want Mexican Food. Tonight we had the chicken burrito verde and asked for an additional plate so we could slit it. It is really too much for one person. The plate also includes rice and refried beans. Being happy hour we ordered a margarita and got an additional free. Total bill without tip was... More

Nice looking restaurant, nice service, but the food did not taste like the Mexican I and many others are used to tasting. In my honest opinion, this restaurant's food, while high in quality, must be geared toward a segment of the population that cannot tolerate any degree of "hot" in their meals. Sorry, La Fogata, but your food does not... More

The food was ok--but nothing extraordinary. It was tasty, service was good, but I wouldn't go back. The chips served with the salsa didn't taste all that fresh and were not even warm. i ordered a combo with cheese enchiladas and a taco with beans and rice and couldn't finish it all--portion was a good size though.

The food looks amazing but the taste isn't. The chile relleno really didn't have any flavor to it. The stuff they put on top and around gave it flavor. The rice and refried beans were very bland. The queso w/beef was not worth the price (small for $7.95). But the beef chimichanga, pastor tacos, and the green salsa was good.... More
