La Forgata was relatively close and had very good reviews so we were excited to try it. It is in a strip mall. Nothing wrong with strip malls. As someone previously mentioned look for Mexican cuisine because the name is very small. The decor is semi Mexican. Half the lights were on. Ambiance non existant. The service was good. The... More

By far the best mexican food I've had in the area. Last time, I got the chile rellenos, and it was excellent. Nice folks, too.

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. I believe it is family owned and the waitstaff is always friendly and makes you feel very comfortable. I asked about a beverage I had not heard of before and the waitress brought a full glass full to try. It was delicious. When are hungry for Mexican fare and want a comfortable... More

Chic eatery with expensive food that was just average. Acoustics very poor. Service substandard. Menu limited.

We absolutely adore La Fogata! Everything about this place is awesome! Delicious margaritas, outstanding guacamole and chips, homemade salsa! The dinners are amazing too! It's not well marked and set back on 41, so don't miss it! It is truly off the charts delicious, authentic Mexican food with amazingly wonderful service! We are NEVER disappointed!!😊

Humble interior but really good food cooked fresh. Margaritas were very tasty and homemade chips and salsa were yummy.

Everything is homemade, beer is cold, family that runs the place is very welcoming! We have been here several times and it is never crowded, which is unfortunate as the food is FANTASTIC! I believe part of the challenge is that the sign you can read from the road is 'Mexican Cuisine' and that's the only part you can see.... More

Real authentic Mexican food! The best guacamole in town! Very basic decor but the food is worth it. The prices are great too.

Great service! Absolutely delicious food we've had 2 weeks in a row! Last week I had flautas and my husband had enchiladas sudadas and again this week! My dinner this week was grilled flank steak in a savory tomato onion sauce. Also they make the BEST Margaritas! My husband and I may come every week from now on! This is... More

If you want the best Mexican food in town, this is the place to go. I've been here several times. It's not a fancy place, but the food is great! Best guacamole, ever! Prices are very reasonable as well.
