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.

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.

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.
