Very good, worth a visit.

We LOVE Mexican food. This will satisfy a craving. Their salsa is not so great but chips are good. Fast and friendly service with good food.

If you like Mexican food I encourage you to try this place. We make our yearly visit and once again enjoyed a great meal. Menu offers a wide selection with a lot of combinations and the service is always good. Chips are great

My husband and I wanted to have Mexican food one night. We stopped at La Fogata and we were pleased. I had chicken with some sort of mexican sauce, rice, avocado salad. My husband had an enchilada with shredded beef, rice and salad. I would definitely go back.

My family and I all love Mexican food, so when we stopped at La Fogata's our standards for fresh Mexican cuisine were probably too high. The service was excellent, and our meals and drinks zipped out of the kitchen very quickly. The staff was friendly, but the food and drinks weren't up to par. First off the margaritas we ordered...

We stop here every year on our way to Hatteras. The food and service is always good. The fresh salsa is very good and has a nice "kick" to it. We will definitely keep on coming back!!

We got the taco combo, quesadilla, and enchiladas. Food was average and price was right. What pushed it to 4 stars was the fried ice cream it looked like a piece of cake and so delicious! Would definitely return.

I love mex and have been to many restaurants around the states. This one is better than average and exceptional for a seasonal tourist city like OBX. All the usuals are on the menu and well prepared. Like every other OBX eatery, get there early as the whole house empties for dinner at 6!

We eat here often, and enjoy both the food and the service. We have gotten to know the wait staff, which makes eating there a pleasure. Our favorite is the Texas Fajitas, which is a huge amount of food. Price is reasonable, staff is attentive and it is enjoyable!
