Basic Mexican food with out a lot of bells and whistles. I ordered the fajitas without green peppers, and the cook left out the tomatoes as well. This left me with beef and onion fajitas! Nevertheless it was quite tasty! My wife ordered a plate with several different items, and she was pleased with how the food tasted. The salsa... More

Friendly staff, good prices, and good food make for a good combination. All four of us enjoyed our visit; better than expected.

Went to LA Fogata's twice during our week stay it was that good. Try the Fried Chicken Chimicangas they are quite good. You may want to get the Cheese Dip for your Chips - yum yum.

Always fast service. Been here several times and the food is consistently good. Margaritas are large and delicious. Good variety of traditional Mexican food that is not fast food with chicken, steak, or shrimp options.

We stopped at La Fogata for lunch yesterday. The restaurant was clean and staff very helpful. The food was just okay. First time we've had a burrito was a sweet taste to the sauce. Sauce was quite mild and bland on all the food. Note, we lived in Southern California for years, so we know good Mexican flavored food.

Got into town late afternoon and stopped here for lunch. The bright orange building almost turned me off to the place, but we went in anyway. Seated promptly and service was good even though it was late for lunch. I got the #7 lunch special (soft chimichanga) and hubby got lunch special #8 fajitas. We were both pleased with our... More

Excellent food, service, and margaritas! Order the Texas Margarita. It's the best. My favorite food item is combo #17 with a chicken burrito and a ground beef enchilada with rice and refried beans. Yum! Don't forget the fried ice cream!

We visited here for a break from our seafood dining during our vacation. Poor decision. We should have known when we saw the sign at the door that said "quality, service or price choose one" should have been a key to go elsewhere. We decided that service was not to be expected as it took several minutes to be seated... More

Really enjoyed the fish tacos. You just know when your meals are made with a Fresh catch & fresh vegetables and herb ingredients. I would absolutely order this dish again
