Friendly staff. Good food (Mexican candies for appetizer, yum (hot), bean burritos or fajitas, flavorful) The salsa is good, the chips...not so much, not very fresh. Even so, I'll be back.

I read some good reviews about La Fogata and wanted to try it. It looked and felt like any one of dozens of similar Tex-Mex restaurants that I eaten at all over the country. The food was good, but all much the same with few distinctive flavors. The Margaritas (very good value on Mondays when the house Margaritas are only... More

We went to la fogata for lunch while on vacation. It turned out to be the best food we had in Denver. My husband and I both had shrimp tacos. There were three of them. Corn tortillas filled with small shrimp and cilantro.served with sour cream and salsa. Oh, they were heavenly. Their salsa was very good also.

I see this every day driving to work, and finally my wife and I decided to see what it was all about. The space is modern and clean, the staff were friendly and we received our food in a good amount of time. We ordered a variety of dishes to try things out. The asada burrito, chili relleno, beef taco,... More

The food was lousy, the chips were stale, the strawberry margarita had little alcohol and taste. Wait staff was confused on our bills. Don't go there.

Excellent selection. Some combos that give variety. My favorite is the soft shell chile relleno. Fair prices with large portions. Have gone here for years and like the friendly staff. Quick and wonderful service.

This came fairly well recommended by reviews online but our group was very disappointed. The best thing we had was the coca-cola in a bottle from Mexico. Food was all lukewarm. Guacamole did not taste fresh. Crispy relleno was ok but not spectacular. My husband liked his chicken chimichanga.

What a good local Mexican food restaurant. Better than most and everything on the menu is good. We love the margaritas! Try some of the combo plates they are good as well as the fajita burrito.

This place used to be an awesome family run restaurant. Great prices, great food. As they have expanded, the prices have increased significantly and the food quality has lessened. It's not bad, just not as good as it used to be.
