Wasn't for me, though my wife would go back. I thought slightly overpriced for unmemorable standard Mexican fare and definitely not a memorable margarita.

We loved El Fogon! I am always skeptical of Mexican food outside of Texas but I'm so glad we decided to go there! The tacos are fabulous as well as the salsa choices! Call for happy hour specials!

My wife and I live in Oak Creek and have passed this restaurant many times. We never dined here mainly because we thought they only served tacos and beer...as the name implies. How wrong we were! After seeing El Fogon listed in our airline dine for miles website, we decided to give them a try. We arrived on a Wednesday... More

The food here is just amazing... please understand that Larruh Z's "overpriced weird Mexican" review is completely, utterly off-base (or maybe I'm just a foodie hipster!). I have scarcely ever had a better taco, or a more authentic Mexican flavor. Order plenty of tacos in soft corn tortillas. You shouldn't be disappointed, unless you don't really like authentic mexican food... More

Have been here 7-8 times, and the food and drinks are above average, but the service is really hit or miss. Had a couple visits the service was great, and several where the service was marginal to bad. Bar manager was rude on more than one occasion , asking us to sit outside if we wanted a drink despite the... More

Doesn't taste like authentic Mexican. The flavors are VERY different. Unless you are a foodie hipster, who loves tequila...this probably isn't the spot for you. Overpriced and crowded made it loud. Outdoor seating is nice though and a welcome amenity.

Good Mexican food, nice outdoor seating. In door is decent but uninspired. Reasonably priced, decent drinks and very nice staff.

From the moment you walk in you will feel comfortable. We usually have a few drinks at the bar and then eat. We love the Guacamole and chips for an appetizer. All the main dishes we have had have been good. We usually have the enchiladas or alambre (sp)
