After giving this restaurant 3 chances at getting it right I will never return. Food each time was bad (how can you ruin a taco?) and service wasn't much better.

We had three adults and three children in the group and most were done eating before they brought out the last adult meal. The waiter was no where to be seen, we ran out of chips and salsa well before our food arrived. The wait time was unreal and the food was just OK. They added on an 18% tip... More

Good, solid Mexican food. The service is fine and the food quite acceptable. One of us had the taco salad and the other the enchiladas. We were all satisfied with the food and service. Very friendly. The restaurant is clean and the service friendly.

Great staff with friendly service. You are greeted with a bowl of warm chips and a nice spicy salsa. Lunch specials are available all day!? Again, try the enchiladas for a real treat.

Just moved from Texas and this is the best Mexican food we have found by far. Super tasty and the Guacamole is amazing. Fast and awesome service even though it was a Saturday Night and it was super busy.

I went to dinner with my family and it was everybody's first time going here. The restaurant is easy to find as its located by a major street(10th and layton) and the building itself is hard to miss because of its interesting and unique design. The parking lot is big and there is ample parking space. I did call ahead... More

Have been to El Fuego several times and each time the food is just ok. Have had their cheese and onion enchiladas and also their shrimp tacos. Nothing to rave about. Ok drinks, but in my opinion over priced for the quality. The restaurant can get very noisy, so we enjoy dining on their back patio in the warmer weather.... More

This place is huge. If the parking lot is full, no worries, the wait won't be long. It's very Mexican looking and the wait staff is awesome. The guacamole is the best! They are also very kid friendly. I wouldn't pass this place up!
