Fogones will pleasantly surprise you. The restaurant may be small but the flavor and the taste are BIG! The food is authentic. The drinks are tasty. The staff is very friendly. You have a choice of eating inside or outside on the patio. Will be returning here many times!

Fogones is authentic and excellent Mexican cuisine. The chimichanga I had with grilled chicken was excellent. Crispy and flavorful, it was a real treat for my taste buds. The chips and salsa were yummy. Altogether a great luncheon experience, and we will be going back!

This is a great little place. Friendly and homey. Food is the best Mexican cuisine around. A can't miss proposition.

This is not your typical greasy burrito spot.  There are limited menu selections to choose from, but absolutely delicious.  You can tell that the food is prepared with fresh and high quality ingredients.  Nice, cozy atmosphere on the main strip, next to city hall.

We love the food here because it is lighter than your average mexican fare, but more flavorsome. We had hoped to take the family for a treat of a meal there shortly after Christmas but found the regular chef must have been on vacation, as it was not NEAR as good. We were embarrassed and have not been back, but... More

We were glad to find this restaurant. If you are looking for Mexican that is not your average fare this is the place to go. Small place but good food and they care about their customers.

This is not your ordinary Mexican food, this is way above and beyond the "standard" gloppy refried bean and yellow cheese dishes you might be used to. I call it upscale Mexican: the names of many of the dishes on the menu you may be familiar with, but the way they are prepared is going to delight you! The food... More

Picked up tamales and enchiladas to take home and my husband and I were very impressed. What a lot of flavor. Not sure how they fix the beans but I could make a meal out of just those and some warm tortillas. Salsa and guacamole were very good also. Will definitely be back.

The food was fresh and fantastic. We both had the Sopes and a rumchata beverage. The service excellent. We hate chain dining and this was what we were looking for. We met the chef who was very cool and informed us that they have live music on some weekends. We will be back and can't wait to try more of... More

Not much to look at... pressed concrete flooring, simple but sturdy chairs and tables. Kitchen in full view. Wait staff is fast/friendly. I had steak quesadillas, and they were quite good. Real cheese (not liquid or velveeta). Deviates from most Mexican places by not having free chips. I didn't miss it, though.
