we had a fantastic dinner on the rooftop part of the restaurant!
The portions were huge and the price was great!
We all had something different and shared tasting all of our choices!
We would recommend and will definitely return!

Really great grilled food at a decent price. I love the grilled chicken plate. Be adventurous and the menu is in spanish!

Main specialty is pastor-pork with pineapple. If you are stuck up you will not like this place, it is a nice family simple local joint with amazing food. Would recommend to anyone!!!!

El Fogon allways delivers. Been coming here every year and never had anything i didnt enjoy. My wife and I generally split a pollo fajita and it is plenty for us both.If you can find a better pollo fajita in Playa let me know.Also the best bean soup.

Went to El Fogon for dinner one evening. True mexican cuisine, large portions and inxpensive. By the time we left there was a line halfway down the street.

We walked here based on a recommendation from our hotel front desk. He told us to order the arracherra especial and it did not disappoint! It is the 2nd best Mexican meal I've ever eaten. Despite its location away from the touristy 5th Avenue, the restaurant is very busy. We had to wait in line both times we visited. The service and the food was awesome though. The only minor complaint I have is they give you a poor exchange if you pay in U.S. dollars. So bring your pesos and enjoy!
