I'm embarrassed at how much money I spent at my first trip to Fuego, but I don't regret a dime. Mexican food is one of those things that is pretty hard to screw up, but perhaps even harder to elevate past the average dining experience- Fuego succeeds. The guacamole is definitely a must-have: the server makes it fresh right at... More

I had a Groupon that was about to expire so we went for happy hour on Friday night. $4 frozen Margaritas and $5 appetizers. Carne asada fries are wonderful. Love the matador shrimp also. Chicken quesadilla and fuego rolls have a wonderful honey bbq sauce. LOVE it!! RECOMMEND!!

Baja fish tacos are my favorite. The chips are thin and crispy, and with the guacamole made at your table, yum! I've also had the bacon wrapped shrimp, and they are great. Basically everything I've had has been delicious!

We got a Groupon to try Fuego tonight! Let's just say they are really really good. The waitress we had Mary was absolutely amazing one of the best we've had in a really long time. The guacamole she made at the table was super good.

We ate at Fuego's Saturday night and were very impressed! We started off with some appetizers- Fuego rolls were amazing and the homemade honey chipotle sauce was so delish. The nachos were good! The guacamole was made fresh at our table and was the best I've had on this side of the Mississippi. We had fajitas and the ribeye kabobs... More

We had a Groupon, so we decided to give it a try. Wow! The food is amazing. We love the homemade salsa, and the steak skewers were delicious. Their margaritas are great and pack a punch. Their chicken rolls are delicious as well. They have happy hour until six Monday through Friday with half-price appetizers.

We actually were on our way to New Orleans, and decided Fuego was a great meeting place for dinner with family. We arrived early and decided to wait at the bar. Trent was our bartender and he was a true ambassador for Fuego's. He fixed us awesome margaritas and gave us some chips and salsa to help us pass the... More

We were in Mobile shopping and decided to go get something to eat. After looking at several websites we came across Fuego. What a great fine! The handmade guacamole dip was delicious, and the food and atmosphere were very good. The staff was welcoming and took good care of us. If you are in Mobile and like Mexican food, I... More

Fuego is the absolute best Mexican in Mobile (and Baldwin county), in my opinion. I've lived here my whole life and Mexican is my favorite food type, so I've visited a lot of Mexican restaurants. Fuego's ingredients are always fresh, flavorful, and delicious. In my many times visiting this restaurant, the food has never been below awesome. All the servers... More
