Got seated right away on Fri afternoon a big plus. Pitcher of margaritas was great and a bargain. Guacamole was superb. Nice happy hour choices.

The food was amazing and the service was exceptional. They have a beautiful little outside patio area which is super comfortable.I would highly recommend this place.

We’ve been going here for years. The staff is always friendly, the food is great and very reasonably priced. The margaritas are a “must have.” If you are in the area, stop in and support this local restaurant.

Good food, older restaurant without a lot of ambiance. Service was pretty good, drinks came quickly. We had the Pollo Asada and the Chicken Fajita Burrito. Margaritas were pretty good too! Total bill came to $40 plus tip.

Lousy chips and too spicy salsa. With all the Mexican restaurants in Denver, there are dozens much better than La Fogata. The place is busy but it must be the low prices. But you get what you pay for.

La Fogata never disappoints. For starters their salsa is the best in Denver and the margaritas will make you forget your worries. Then there is something tasty on the menu for everyone’s palate. And the customer never goes away hungry.

I wrote a review on this restaurant a year or two ago and at that time rated it as pretty good, not great. That's really saying something living in a town where Mexican restaurants aren't that great! I have been back a number of times...More

We stopped to eat here because of the beautiful flowers surrounding their patio. Much to our surprise the food and margaritas were divine! There's not one thing we found inferior. A plus to the fantastic food and drinks was the incredible service. Absolutely 5 star....More
