Delicious and fast service. We always visit this place at least once during our stay in Avon Margaritas are perfect! I can’t say enough about the quality and quantity of food. Staff is super nice and the place is always clean.

A good break from the fried seafood everywhere, an excellent Mexican alternative. Food was excellent. Portions not huge but perfectly adequate. Good salsa. Enjoyed shrimp chimichanga and wife had steak quesadilla which reminded her of an excellent Philly cheesesteak.

My wife and I decided to do Mexican the first night we were on the island. Most places on the island are closed in late December, but La Fogata was open. We called in our order right at 6pm and they said they were very...busy and our order would be ready in 55 minutes, which was fine with us. We arrived at 7pm and the place was slammed. Our order took another 15 minutes. I spoke to the people at the restaurant a couple of days later and they said they couldn't believe how busy they were that night. They said it was like Cinco de Mayo in late December. Our food was delicious. I had the Enchilada Supreme which comes with 4 Enchiladas. I had to eat my 4th Enchilada the next day. Good serving of food. My wife got the Chicken Fajitas and they were also delicious and plentiful. I would highly recommend La Fogata. I imagine that they are very busy during the summertime. Nice people!More

This is a must stop. Service and food was excellent. Ask for the hot sauce. The entire family loved it here. Wish I would have gotten the name of our server he was fantastic.

Wow, this was so very, very bad, absolutely no flavor, we all thought that we had COVID, but the food was just flavorless. Decent people, good service, but the food was bland.

Jorge was an excellent server. He greeted us right away and he was very attentive. I asked about recommendations for dinner. He recommended a steak dish which my husband ordered. He said that it was very fresh and tasty. We will definitely go back again.

Ok so I cant give La Fogata a great review but i can give it a good review. Just stopped in for a snack. We ordered Chorizo Cheese dip, Guacamole dip and Sour Cream. All good but the house salsa was just ok. Salsa lacked...flavor and was to thin. Really the only Mexican restaurant we see near Buxton.More
