Great atmosphere, great drinks, and excellent food. We dined at En Fuego on a mid-week night. They also had some live entertainment in the bar.

I ordered a combination taco platter. The black beans and red rice were delicious. The fish, chicken and beef tacos were also tasty!

Awesome place for Taco Tuesdays and margaritas. Definitely casual, and suitable for families as well as adults. Fun atmosphere. Right on the main street in Del Mar. Favorite Mexican food in Del Mar (excluding Fidel's, which isn't technically in Del Mar anyway).

The funky indoor-outdoor arrangement felt very much like Mexico. We just had nachos, but they were very good. Comfortable. Plus they seemed to allow dogs, which is a bonus in my book! :-)

We are Mexican food addicts, so when we were looking for a spot to have lunch in Del Mar, this was a natural choice. Not too shabby overall. We liked the eclectic vibe, and the different seating areas. It has a good feel. I liked the chips and salsa a lot, and my fish tacos were big and fresh. We... More

What has happened to this place? The service is not good, the food equally as bad. I used to enjoy it but after 2 bad meals here I think I will not return. They need to add some FLAVOR to their food, it is Mexican food!! Add some chili's!! Guacamole is terrible and they give you 1/2 a cup of... More

Good traditional Mexican food in Del Mar. if you it is cold outside, dress warm. This restaurant has lots of heaters, but is not completely enclosed. If you do not like onions, tell them to hold them, as you will get more than you no what to do with it. Salsa is always good.

This place is located on Caninodel Mar serving great Mexican food and great Mararitas. Restaurant is on two levels with parking in front and rear alley. Young crowd and plenty of fun for all.

My first time ever having fish tacos because it didn't sound good. Was I ever wrong, they are great! En Fuego has a couple of choices, the Swordfish taco was my favorite. I went back for traditional Mexican and that was very good also. Highly recommended.
