“Authentic Mexican food and beautiful atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Everything here is incredible - the food, the staff, the prices...don't miss this place! If you are vising it's worth coming off the River Walk to visit La Fogata.

“Nice atmosphere, very expensive, so-so food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

The place has a very nice atmosphere with its outdoor seating. The service was very good. The food was not the greatest in fact I thought it tasted quite bland and the portions were small. Prices here are very high for Mexican food. I might return for a cool beer or two or three but not sure if I would eat here again.

“Good food, festive outdoor patio area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

The food at La Fogata is good Tex-Mex affair, but the standout is the outdoor patio area. The area is shaded by mature trees and there are fountains in a couple of places. At night the brightly colored lighting is very festive and adds to the party atmosphere.
There was a mariachi band wandering the area on the evening we were there. Very festive, but also very loud. This is not the place to go for a quiet, intimate dinner.
We went on a Friday night at about 8 PM, and had a 45 minute wait. We felt it was worth the wait.

“Fun Atmosphere”

True San Antonio flavor. Margaritas were wonderful. Food was okay, a little bland for my taste. Fun place for tourists!!!

“Cool atmosphere, not so good food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Neat place to go. Especially to eat out on patio. But food not worth the prices. My son's $9 child meal of quesadillas said it came with fajita steak meat, but it didn't. Hubby ordered tacos al la carbon, then charged extra for beef!?!?! When waiter asked, he didn't do anything about it. I would not recommend, unless you just want to go have a beer!
