Not knowing what to order, I choose the first thing on the menu. Paisita. It came with some fatback (Thick Bacon), some flank steak, sausage, beans, rice with an egg on top, plantains and some avocado. So a little of everything. The place is so unassuming and simple.

The steaks are made to order and sizzle from start to finish. The plantains are sweet and have a great char to them. It's as close to actual Colombian food as I've had in a while.

My team was sending off two of our fellow employees. This is a Columbian restaurant who handled our large group very well despite one serving handling the room.

Restaurant has a home-style flavor and the server was attentive... More

My family and I would always visit La Fogata when we first lived here.We moved in 2014 but returned in 2016. The atmosphere is still great and the food is AWESOME. I'm glad we made it back

I ate at La Fogata years ago and liked the food very much but did not return because the prices were not listed. You find out how much $$$ you ate when the bill comes and that is just bad business.

The fried banana sandwiches are delicious. I got the mixed plater order. This order is enough for lunch. I love that we have other Hispanic style restaurants in our neighborhood.

Took my wife here on a dinner date. I ordered for her and she loved my choice. We both got the churrasco. It's so tender and so tasty that no steak sauce is needed. Will be back
