My husband goes here every time he comes to town (over many years) and took me here for the first time. The food was good, staff friendly and loved the interesting meat and pineapple tacos. The shrimp were good as well. Fresh salsas and sauces for it all!

I travel through mexico quite a bit...well i live in mexico. In san jose, hands down, as far as clean tacos with high quality meat and great service is at Fogon, I eat at ALL the dives. There are some decent eateries in san jose...if you want clean healthy tacos that you can write home about then find Fogon. The people there know me i go by so much when i´m in town and you´ll notice, as many people will say, eat where the locals eat. It´s a bit tricky to find but i promise it´s worth it if you want authentic mexican tacos. Tell carlos the waiter hello for me.

One of our repeat favorites. Local flavor and flare. Prices can't be beat. No alcohol served but who cares when the taste is this fabulous! The Pazole is a must.

This is our stop for a quick meal of excellent Al Pastor taco's. Shrimp is good too, as is the fish. Prices are cheap, and it's a place the locals's come to eat. They don't serve alcohol here but there is a mini super just a few steps away across the street as they are perfectly fine with you bringing in your own drink.

We have been going to El Fogon now for over 8 years. We don't get down to Baja often, but we always make this one of our first and last stops on our trip. The Al Pastor here is exceptional....we have not found better in other parts of Mexico or the U.S. If they have the posole (used to be on Thursdays only)....definitely add to your order.
