Went out for date night! This is a cute little place in a shopping center. Very clean, wait staff was friendly. I would have loved to have tried the quest but my fiancé wasn't in the mood and I didn't want to eat a whole bowl by myself. Margaritas were on point!! He had steak fajitas and I had Carne... More

My Spanish is not good but the food at La Fogata is excellent. My title means "very flavorful" and I think La Fogata means "wood fire" which refers to the traditional ovens used for cooking. We were a large group and all ordered different dishes, but it wasn't long before eveyone wanted to taste everyone else's dish. They were all... More

Food was very good with large portions, service was friendly, the restaurant appeared to be clean and the atmosphere was what you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. Only down side was our bottled beer was not very cold.

Local favorite for us. We're here at least once a month. Staff is friendly and food is consistently good. My kids love the queso. They always share steak fajitas (enough for two kids). I love their skinny maragaritas and both soups are delicious and filling - I overlooked them for years until I discovered them and cannot get enough. Bring... More

The restaurant is located at a strip mall with Publix and other retail stores. La Fogata has the typical decor and music one expects of a authentic Mexican restaurant. The wait staff are friendly and the food is very good. Its a casual atmosphere. I recommend this place if you are in the mood for Mexican restaurant if you are... More

Update of my previous review. I've returned several times to this nice quiet hideaway in Wellington. Extensive Mexican menu. Good food, value and service. Have never been disappointed. Daily lunch and dinner specials. Well worth a visit in my humble opinion.

Went with a big group, 12 total, they told us 15 minute wait for a table so we waited. After 20 mins we asked again seeing open tables at the back and front of the restaurant. The reply was "you can sit on the table but won't be served as waiters are busy". So shouldn't a restaurant have enought servers... More

All I can say is wow. The food was good, wait staff was ok, but the bartender was by-far the worst I have ever experienced! Incredibly unprofessional. I couldn't tell if she was on drugs or just drunk. As I walked out, even the wait staff apologized for her actions. We will not be back.

La Fogata was a great, middle of the road Mexican restaurant. The service is friendly, food tasty and margaritas better than average. The prices are fair and it's in a great location.
