Stopped in for lunch while in the area. Restaurant was clean, employees were friendly, service prompt, food was good, restrooms were clean. We will definitely return if we are back in the area.

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.

Great food. Seemed more authentic than a lot of Mexican places. Salsa was great. Service good. Very clean. Would eat here again!

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

Ordered the chicken fajita nacho plate. with a side of nachos & guacamole. Very delicious. Nice balance of chicken, cheese, onion, peppers, and nachos. Very tasty. Must also say their salsa is just about the best my wife and I have ever tasted. Will definitely...come back during our stay. Staff were very nice.More

Excellent service and tasty food! Just like back home! We ordered chicken fajita quesadilla and it was terrific—make sure you add cheese dip and sour cream! Will visit again!
