We visit La Fogata at least once per month because their food is delicious, their staff is friendly, and their prices are competitive! I love Mexican food, especially green chili and La Fogata does not disappoint. Every time somebody suggests a different Mexican restaurant I am a bit hesitant. I always compare their food with La Fogata, but haven't found... More

I've been to La Fogata twice and had a nice experience both times. Food is good, but nothing spectacular. Portion sizes are huge so come hungry! I sat in the patio both times. The trees in patio offered great shade, but the views were pretty sad since it's just the parking lot and a nearby road. The waitress was very... More

When you get enchiladas covered in tomato paste, you have to wonder why people call this "Mexican" food. The waiter was very personable (seating staff not so much) but a little slow. Very busy place which surprised me since the food was probably some of the worst I have had. BUT the salsa was very tasty (although chips were stale).... More

Went there last night with some friends from work and one of our customers. I was skeptical since I have been there once & the experience was far from ok. Nice restaurant inside n staff is very nice but when the plates being served are all cold except for the sizzling fajitas and so many tables opened, you have to... More

We enjoyed the chips and salsa beginning to dinner. Our entrees pleased all of us. Portions are very generous and make great leftovers the next day.

Years ago when I first started going to La Fogata to eat I was not impressed with the food and the atmosphere was blah. More recently, the food seems much better and there is an increased number of waitstaff who are friendly and attentive. My favorite foods are the fish tacos which I get most visits. My husband appreciates the... More

Decent mexican food, great chips and salsa. They changed the bar tops from wood to vinyl I guess for better cleaning. Sometimes they seem to use to much cleaner behind the bar. Happy hour is good to a couple drinks with friends.

Really great salsa with some kick. Overpriced menu. We had the steak fajitas and the steak was pretty tough but the dish did have good flavor. Great margaritas but bar drinks are pretty pricey. Shared steak fajitas with extra meat, a margarita and a beer was $40
