Good portion sizes

We were very surprised at the hefty portion sizes. The service was good and so was the food. We both ordered one of the combo plates and everything on the plate was delicious and hot. Try the combo with the chile rellano, burrito, and chalupa. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Our party of seven enjoyed a decent meal of various Mexican dishes. The food and service were good and the prices were very reasonable. All in all, it was a good experience and I especially recommend it for families.

We were driving back from visiting Manteo and, on a whim, decided to have lunch here. Very enjoyable lunch. Staff was great. Lunch was excellent both in quality, quantity, and pricing. Would definitely go back, again for lunch or dinner!

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

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
