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.

Stopped here for lunch while having work done on my car nearby. Great service. Comfortable outdoor patio nicely shielded from busy street. Enjoyed a delicious tall Bloody Mary to accompany a plate of huevos rancheros.

I've tried the one in DTC and didn't think anything great about. I feel the same about this location and am surprised because of the reviews and recommendations. I moved to Denver last summer and am still looking for good Mexican food in Denver, haven't found it yet. I won't come back to either of these locations. Foods all the... More
