I went by myself (on a business trip), and the staff were very willing to help describe dishes and beer offerings based on my preferences. Food was delicious, service was prompt and friendly, and of course, the patio is lovely.

Extensive menu with all the Tex mex favorites. Great combinations and the specials are to die for. Superb service. Ask for Victor.

En Fuego is an ok place in Del Mar. Service is fine, the location nice, the food - I would say "Texmex" hits it on the spot - is ok, but rather very much on the cheesy side. The drink list is one of the better ones in Del Mar. Overall a reasonable place to go, especially for the ambience... More

We ate here our last night. They have great food and drinks. The ambience is very Mexican. You can sit either outside or inside. Highly recommend it.

We had a lovely dinner here. Started with the house margaritas, they were sweeter than what we have in NM and we're tasty Service and food was excellent. I had the #6 combinatio, fich taco, seafood enchilada, and chili releno. Price is reasonable for the amount of food

I used to come to en Fuego all the time when I was single / "fun" - now that I'm married with tiny kids, I questioned if they would still welcome my kind :-) They totally did! We went for lunch and they were fantastic. Plus my picky kids even loved the food! Two thumbs up for this all around... More
