Is a regular restaurant, with clean nice environment, food taste well, not too remarkable. Better than your average "Mexican", but not the real deal either. They have a decent kids menu. If you have a "coupon" is a very good deal.

We were looking for some good Mexican food. What we got was anything but... it was so very disappointing. We ordered a beer and an "award winning margarita" to start. We also asked for the "freshly made" guacamole. We couldn't believe the portion size! It was so small. The beverages were fine. The guacamole, however, not so much. Then we... More

First, the ambiance: this is a rather old building that has been renovated to achieve the feel of "old Mexico" with terracotta/stucco walls, a high wooden ceiling and nice, open dining area. Next, the staff: everyone seemed truly happy to be here, and our waiter, Trent," was friendly, efficient and hilarious! Finally, the food: we ordered chile rellenos, tacos, and... More

We love Fuego, mostly because they have amazing salsa and guacamole, but even more because of their veggie enchiladas. They were amazing! We try to eat plant-strong as much as possible and Fuego made it enjoyable. Would love to see one or two more food options and vegan items marked (we aren't vegan but marking vegan makes it easier for... More

Inside it looked upscale. Lots of business men doing lunch. It is excellent food. Even the salsa for the chips were a cut above average. All of the food is well done.

Went with family and the fajitas are so good! Everything was cooked to perfection. And they make the guacamole right in front of you. Love it!

I've been to Fuego for lunch and dinner. I prefer lunch only because the restaurant tends to be quiet loud with the dinner crowds. I love Mexican food and I have never been disappointed with anything on the menu. The chips are always hot and the salsa is cold and delicious. The guacamole made ate the table is very good....

We have eaten there twice, both times for dinner. The first time was enjoyable with good service and good California Mexican style food (we moved to Lower AL from So. California and found Fuego's food familiar). The more recent visit was with another couple and the experience was far less pleasing. We had reservations for a late dinner. Service was... More
