Description: Founded in 1978, we have been fire-roasting our famous salsa and mixing our legendary margaritas for 35 years, serving an average of 450 guests daily—that’s right, 6,000 (or more) happy diners enjoy the restaurant each week. That’s an amazing feat for a San Antonio Mexican restaurant that started as little more than a taco stand in a former neighborhood Dairy Queen. Our staff is dedicated to your fun! The La Fogata team includes staff members who have been on the serving line since 1978. The same cook has been creating the restaurant’s award-winning salsa for 24 years. In an industry known for its high turnover, even the wait staff includes long-time La Fogata veterans, so Dwight is surrounded by a dedicated team who knows the business and shares his passion for the restaurant.

“best chicken flautas in San Antonio”
Reviewed July 4, 2009

I live in San Antonio. I love chicken flautas. I have had them everywhere and can tell you hands down that La Fogata has the best ones. They use white meat and layer the flautas with a thick layer of guac. So good. The margs are good if you like them sweet (not me). My husband always orders "Un Poquito de Todo" which is a smapler plate with all their best.

“Great mexican food and margaritas in a pretty patio setting...”
Reviewed March 22, 2009

We went on a recent Saturday night, and waited about 45 minutes for our table. Thankfully the $8 margaritas were very tasty, and the people watching was fun, so our wait didn't seem so long. We had a nice table on the patio, so we enjoyed the nice weather while we dined. Service was fine--the waiter was very nice but did have a number of tables to juggle. Our food came out fairly fast, and it was fantastic! Watch out for the salsa--it was too hot for my wife (but I ate plenty of it). Our dishes were great--green chile enchiladas (wife) and chicken mole enchiladas. They both ran about $12. We both cleaned our plates and had no room for dessert! We will be back!!

Menu's still good, but a shell of what it once was. How many times has the ownership changed ?
