I'm torn between giving them a 3 star and 4 star review. The prices are good and the menu has some really nice variety. The buffalo chicken tacos are to die for but my quesadilla was average and the salsa didn't rock my world either. It's the only restaurant I've tried in the area so I'd probably be more inclined...

I've always liked El Fuego, but after a recent visit I was extremely impressed. A burrito with chips and salsa, and a Jarrito's soda cost only $11 bucks, and was more than enough food. They now have a loyalty card and a discount due to some sort of agreement with whaler's brewery, and as a byob restaurant you cant beat... More

We had dinner here after the hockey game at URI. The service was fast if a bit abrupt. The food was very good Tex-Mex, but not very spicey. It is clearly a good college place, but parent friendly. I might come back, but I will look at other places as well. The prices and choices are good too.

El Fuego has a good selection of burritos and other Mexican food. I've been happy with the quality each time I've visited. They have plenty of seating and it's BYOB.

Friendly and welcoming was the first impression. We shared an order of 3 tacos for 6.99 and 2 sodas. Two hard and one soft chicken tacos with taco chips and a nice helping of salsa. Tacos were fresh and they were liberal with the amount of shredded chicken. Plenty of hot sauces to choose from and a funky little table... More

Never been to Wakefield before, and I am ashamed since I grew up in Eastern CT, and went to Misquamicut many times. It is worth the 15 min drive from Charlestown.

Found this place looking for Brickley's Ice Cream's other location . Luckily for us it was Taco Tuesday- so their already great prices were even better. Kind of crowded (lots of locals! )- but the food was worth it. I highly recommend the chicken soft tacos!

Came here for lunch today around 1230. Walked in and wasn't sure if I was supposed to sit or order at the register. Looked around and it seemed it was more self serve. Ordered two chicken tacos and it came with chips and salsa and also got a bottled water. Looks like you can get self serve tap water if... More

Just not good. No disrespect but worst tasting Salsa I have ever had. Not good Mexican food. IMO. Sorry.

Their tacos, burritos and other dishes are just great. Don't miss out on the specials, as they are with considering. Fresh, fresh and fresh.
