While in town visiting family we went here for dinner and we were so surprise as the food was fantastic as the service was too.the food is made to order so you have to wait a little longer for it but worth the wait.

It took us 1 minute and 33 seconds to be seated and receive our drinks, chips, and salsa. the salsa is a little spicy but warm so that's a big plus from the salsa that I have eaten at other restaurants. I received my food in 13 minutes and 17 seconds only because I believe their is only two people... More

Took my grandson to lunch a La Fogata's Had an excellent meal and service. I had the Chimichanga with chicken fried and a white cheese sauce. We also had the tortilla soup and the bean dip for the nachos. All excellent tastes.

Four of us ordered three different meals and they were excellent. Note, we're senior, seniors and not apt to hide our feelings, so take what I say seriously: Fogata food is excellent; the best Mexican food restaurant in the area.

I'm from Texas and I don't think much of the so called "Mexican" food here in Lynchburg. Having said that I must admit the food at La Fogata is not bad. Starting with the homemade salsa all the way to entree!

Took a date to La Fogata on a whim to try some Mexican food in Lynchburg that wasn't La Carreta (nothing against LC, just figured I'd try something new). I was not disappointed. Food was great, portions were generous, and prices were cheap. Apparently, you just go up to the front to pay whenever you're ready to leave. My date... More

Had been hearing about La Fogata for a while now and finally got to visit. This was, by far, the best Mexican food we have had in Lynchburg and among the best we have had anywhere. It is a very small restaurant in a strip center directly on Enterprise and we went for a late lunch. There were 3 other... More

We visited La Fogata because we had a coupon from one of those big fundraiser coupon books that were about to expire. $5 off 2 menu items of $6 or more. The restaurant is in Wyndhurst, we almost missed it. It's small, with tables that look more like a family diner with their green and white almost plaid like tablecloths,... More

Stopped to try this restaurant based on the reviews... waited 40 minutes & finally had to walk out! One person working on a Saturday night? Felt kinda bad leaving, but there were two tables ahead of us still waiting for their meals.

The salsa is amazing!! It's a little spicy but still really good. I had a "sampler" platter with a little of everything. It was super yummy! Great service!
