I wandered in here because it was convenient, the space has been inhabited by many places over the last ten years but this is the occupant that needs to stay forever! Everything from the in-house made tortillas, the friendly service, and the ambiance adds to the enjoyment of the meal. I've tried at least 1/2 the menu and it's incredibly good Mexican food, the best entree in my opinion is the dungeness crab enchiladas with tomatillo...seriously, it's what awesome tastes like.

Fogon is a wonderful, relaxed place to share dinner with family and friends. After eating there several times (the last time being a birthday celebration with 6 people) it has become one of my favorite restaurants when in Capitol Hill. The service is attentive and the food is authentic and consistently delicious. My favorite order is the chile verde with a sangria - perfect. I love the corner location with its two walls of windows which give the restaurant a nice open yet cozy feel. This is a must-do for Seattle!

The service was wonderful and the food was simply the best authentic Meixan in Seattle we have had. Watch out for the drink prices - Fogon has an enormous selection of tequilas to try and you will want to. Stay away from the wine list and have a margarita. My only complaint is that the special tequila martini added $15.00 to the bill and we had two of them at the urging of the host. It would have been a better idea to stick with the margaritas. The dinner was simply a delectable combination of flavors from south of the border. Don't miss this Seattle gem!
