It’s almost impossible to find decent Mexican food in Costa Rica, I think this place is as close as it comes. The people complaining about the prices probably don’t realize that everything is expensive in C.R. I actually thought the prices were reasonable. The salsa’s were great and beers ice cold. I’ll be back for sure.

We visited El Fogoncito just to share a night together, it was just OK. My boyfriend ordered a lomito and the dish was extremely poor for the price it had. I decided to order an Azteca soup, nothing else since that bothered me. Although the atmosphere was great!

The food is really great. If you like mexican food you will love their dishes. The bad side are the prices. For the size of the dish you get, everything is overpriced. They should also find a way to improve the parking space because it is horrible.

The food here is great, but I feel it is overpriced for Mexican food. There are so many other restaurants that offer similar menu items at a better price, like Antojitos or Tacontento. However, they do have a really tasty Sopa Azteca.

There was nothing really bad about it, it just wasn't good enough to make me want to eat there again.
