Eaten here several times before when we visit relatives living in the area. So we had a base of reference. This night was a significant disappointment. We had a large to-go order which was not ready until 15 minutes after expected time and two items...More

Hadn't been here in awhile so stopped for lunch on a Sunday. Got there right when they opened and the booths were already filling up. Great patio area too. We ordered a carne asada smothered burrito and the smothered crispy chili rellonos. Both were very...More

Great place for some good Mexican food. Love the La Fogata Combo and the Menudo after a night of celebration with a Tomato beer!!! I will warn you, its a little on the pricy side, but well worth it,

We had lunch at La Fogata and the lunch specials are very good and reasonable. I got the Chili Rellenos and my wife got the taco salad. She said it was average as taco salads go.

Their lunches are worth the drive to. From quesadillas to enchiladas to burritos they are all fantastic. And it's a must that you have the house margarita

I recently visited this restaurant with a friend. I was very happy with the quality of food and the service. The waitress was very attentive and accommodating throughout our long visit. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My family loves La Fogata. The service is always warm and friendly, and prompt. The food is delicious. We can't get enough of the salsa, and the green chili. The menu is large and diverse. Its a well run restaurant off the beaten path.

Last night (1/14/17) we thought we would try LacFogata- big mistake.. First the visit started with the surly hostess, not only surly, but I am somewhat mobility impaired and this girl took off from the hostess station like a runner out of the starting blocks....More

i love this place because of the fresh ingredients. there are no canned sauces or prepackaged salsa or guacamole. the result is that everything tastes exceptional. the house magaritas are also not watered down. the tacos barachas and pork tacos are the best! but the...More
