The food was just awful and over priced. No flavor, seasoning nor taste. I am NEVER going there again. It took like an hr to get a table another to get the food and like 30 minutes to get our ticket. I don't know where...More

First ate at this restaurant 30+ years ago. Always make a point of returning when in San Antonio (not often enough)! Love the ambiance, the salsa and the margaritas. Entrees were so so this time but willing to overlook.

I have been here before when visiting San Antonio, but it's been a pretty good while ago. I came back this weekend thing that the food was fantastic. It's a fun place, very, very nice. But I just wasn't happy with the food! Very over...More

Have eaten here since it was just a little spot in an old gas station. It is now a charming larger restaurant with great outdoor dining. And the best Mexiican food and atmosphere around!

This has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants in San Antonio. Great food options that are slightly more authentic than your standard tex-mex joint. The margaritas are always good, no matter which one we've tried. Every dinner we have had has been really good,...More

In addition to an extensive menu of delicious options at reasonable prices, the charming ambience makes this an excellent choice for Mexican food. Enjoy!

We wanted a Mexican food experience that was not a chain, so I found La Fogata online and it was near our hotel which worked out well. We went on a Friday evening and waited 48 minutes for our table, which wasn't really all that...More

Outstanding food and service and the best margaritas I have ever had. Not cheap but not superexpensive either.

If you are looking for outstanding margaritas, this is the place! They also have delicious food too. Loved it.

It is truly a unique place to eat. Great outdoor dining with quite a variety on the menu. The setting is nice and the margaritas are excellent. Perhaps the best combination of setting, food & drink in San Antonio.

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.
