This was an unexpected stop on the way home from Ft. Collins, CO. We were both pleasantly surprised that this restaurant was so large, the menu very extensive and the service was very prompt. The burrito I had was huge and delicious! I/we were really impressed and happy we stopped in!

This is a great Mexican restaurant. The portions are extremely large so you won't go home hungry. I love the guacamole and the shrimp cocktail which is definitely a meal, not an appetizer. Super nice people on staff and so friendly. Don't forget a margarita the house one is great.

This is a good Mexican restaurant with good prices and a pleasant atmosphere, a patio for warmer weather, and a great $4 happy hour margarita! We enjoyed both the chimichangas and the burritos, plenty of food! Our server Martha was quick and efficient, stopped by often enough but not too much. We were also visited by the manager. Everyone here... More

Visiting family in Denver, they took me here for dinner. I ordered the crispy taco and a margarita. The taco were great and the margarita, though an orangish color, were good too. Cheap eats and friendly staff.

We visit La Fogata at least once per month because their food is delicious, their staff is friendly, and their prices are competitive! I love Mexican food, especially green chili and La Fogata does not disappoint. Every time somebody suggests a different Mexican restaurant I am a bit hesitant. I always compare their food with La Fogata, but haven't found... More

I've been to La Fogata twice and had a nice experience both times. Food is good, but nothing spectacular. Portion sizes are huge so come hungry! I sat in the patio both times. The trees in patio offered great shade, but the views were pretty sad since it's just the parking lot and a nearby road. The waitress was very... More

When you get enchiladas covered in tomato paste, you have to wonder why people call this "Mexican" food. The waiter was very personable (seating staff not so much) but a little slow. Very busy place which surprised me since the food was probably some of the worst I have had. BUT the salsa was very tasty (although chips were stale).... More
