Great little Mexican restaurant

We went on the Saturday night before Mother's Day. The food was great, there was a little wait as it was really packed, but worth the wait. The servers were very friendly and took good care of us and my 2 year old grandson. When we left, my daughter-in-law and I both got long stemmed roses for... read more

The item menus listed as vegetarian are not vegetarian because the rice is made with chicken broth. The vegetarian burrito has Spanish rice that is made with chicken broth. I asked the owner when I first started going there and she said it was not made with chicken broth. I found out later that she lied and the rice is... More

Walking into this restaurant you might wonder what experience you might have, but don't let the looks deceive this place is for real. What this place lacks in seating it makes up for in flavor! The service was quick and the food was piping hot. The choice for this evening was Pollo el ajille which was chicken in a mushroom... More

Have been coming to EF since 2006, when it was first starting up. The food has never been disappointing and has the top rated salsa for the N.E. Oklahoma area. The chips are top notch as well. I have tried the chile rellenos, Mexico City tacos, fajitas, enchiladas and various salads among other menu selections.. All met the bar, which... More

The El Fogon restaurant which in English means, the campfire, is a smallish mom & pop establishment conveniently located just north of Owasso, Oklahoma. I wouldn't call the food TexMex but rather more traditional Mexican. I've tried just about everything and you just cant go wrong. Great food, great service!

I have visited El Fogon's many times over the past 5 years and can testify that it is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Tulsa area, especially here in Owasso. The owners and their wait staff take the time to get to know you (and your families) and are always friendly, attentive and fast in their service. The meals are... More

Good food. Good service. Reasonable prices. Always clean. Remodeled twice since first opening. The only complaint is they are so popular that they stay very busy (crowded) during peak dining hours. Arrive early or late and that is no problem.

Recently dined at El Fogon after hearing great reviews. It was a Friday evening and thus busy. We were seated within 5 minutes though and greeted by at least two separate servers. The food was great and the service was just as good. The atmosphere is good albeit a small building. Definitely a recommended location if your looking for Mexican... More

El Fogon serves really good food. It is a family business and you are met with a smile when you enter. It is not a fancy place, but the food and service is superior.
