Feb 2020 Fogon de Charlotte San Antonio Tlayacapan Once again, we enjoyed a great dinner at this restaurant. We dined on the patio outside. We went with friends who have since moved to the area and they seemed to enjoy their meals as much as we always do. Lori the owner as usual was friendly, helpful and attentive. Some of us got steaks others, Chiles en Nogada and drinks as well. Service was excellent, efficient and unobtrusive. Drinks were well made, prices always reasonable with daily specials as well. We will be back as we have many times over.

Jan 18, 2020 Fogon de Charlotte San Antonio Tlayacapan A group of 7 of us met up for dinner here. As always it was delicious. They have indoor and outdoor seating. As always the service is impressive and food great. They have daily specials, one of which I got which was the Chiles en Nogada which comes with a nice thick walnut cream sauce and a side salad. Yummy at 150 pesos. My husband had the Porterhouse steak and others had Ribeye and other various foods along with a to-go order for Chicken Parmesan. Everyone was happy with their meals and the conversation flowed nicely. Will return over and over again.

We had dinner here tonight on our second day in Lakeside.. I had the Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura and my husband had the Pasta alfredo with Shrimp. Both were very delicious and filling. There were plenty of shrimp on the pasta and the alfredo sauce had a nice taste. There were also plenty of shrimp and vegetables on the tempura plate, which came with tartar sauce and a dipping sauce. The batter on the tempura was light and crispy, unlike so many other restaurants I've been to where it is doughy and greasy. The chips offered before dinner came with a spicy sauce and a pico de gallo; the mix of the two was a great taste effect. We would certainly eat here again.

My wife and I arrived at El Frogon Charlotte at around 5:00 on a Saturday afternoon. She chose this restaurant as her birthday supper as we had heard good things about it. Upon arrival we went through the mandatory Covid check and got seated with menus. There were 3 tables occupied and 3 servers so we thought it would be a good time. About 10 minutes went buy and the young female server came and asked us if anyone had taken our order. She apologized, scooted inside the restaurant and returned with a nice young gentleman to take our order. We ordered our drinks and to avoid another delay thought we should order our food. My wife asked about what the filling options were for the enchelata. The server told her rice, beans, cheese, choice of meat, chicken or shrimp. She chose shrimp. I had heard that the pizzas were great. I ordered a Charlie Pizza (4 meats) and specified 'sin cebolla/no onions. The server wrote it down, repeated it and went to place the order. A few minutes later her enchiladas and order of onion rings arrived. It was a thing of beauty with amazing presentation. However, upon biting into it, she discovered no beans, no rice, not quite what she ordered. Ten minutes later, my pizza arrived. The server set it in front of me and it was obvious by looking at it that it indeed had onions. I pointed it out to the server, he apologized and returned the pizza to the kitchen. He returned to the table, said that they would prepare a new pizza an it would be another 10 minutes. By the time the pizza arrived, my wife was finished as much as she could eat. The server apologized and said if you do not like the pizza, you do not have to pay for it. The young lady server came over seeming to know that I was not happy by my expression. The pizza I ordered was a 4 meat pizza and the one I received had black olives, green peppers and pineapple on it. I told her what I ordered and the mix up was instead of a Charley pizza, I received a Charlotte pizza. Oh well, it was a decent pizza, not what I ordered but good. She offered to return the pizza a second time and I said I was fine. A few minutes later, she returned with a birthday brownie and ice cream sparkler for my wife. Nice touch. Upon requesting the bill, and paying for full order, I mentioned to the nice young server who tried to make things right that she was the most positive thing about our 1st experience. We both did not get what we ordered but the food nonetheless was good.

Went for a late lunch/early dinner with a friend. I have always loves this restaurant. Sadly it has changed with ownership. The meal started with free chips and sals which is always a nice traditional touch. The Chiles en Nogada was just okay. The walnut sauce, I think had no walnuts and was so thick it was like whipped cream. The chile was okay but lacked flavor. The pomegranate seeds were cranberries. It came with a baked potatoe that was good. I had a margarita also, I specified twice wanting salt rim and yet I received no salt rim. The margarita got no raves either. The service was just okay and let's face it with the traffic noise without the excellence of previous owners it falls short. Sad all the way around. Likely I will not be going back. :(

My stop on the way back from shopping at Sorianas. The Chef serves delicious food with an artistic flare. Once again, tasty food, good service, and great parking. Three qualities on my list, frankly, I would fudge a little on service for good parking!

After 1200 miles and 4 days on the road from Arizona we arrived back at lakeside for the summer. Exhausted we wanted something easy and familiar for dinner. Great choice at El Fagon de Charlotte. We started with taco appetizers...shrimp for my husband and fish for me...both nice and crispy. Wanting something light my husband went for the salad with (9!)grilled shrimp and I went for the salad with grilled mahi mahi. Both were excellent. Friendly service, good food and drinks. We'll be back...often!

I was in the area doing my weekly shopping and I drove by El Fogon de Charlotte and decided to finally check it out after months of driving by. It looked like there were a couple of single diners there and being solo myself, I hoped to find a bit a conversation along with my lunch. After passing through the usual covid checkpoint at the door I selected a seat near a couple of other solo diners. The menu offered a good selection of grilled meat dishes and some shrimp dishes as well. The pizza section of the menu was quite impressive and I noted that for future reference. The waiter efficiently took my order for coconut shrimp and I relaxed to enjoy a nice glass of cabernet sauvignon while I waited. In no time I had a nice conversation going with both solo diners on either side of myself and the wait time for my meal quickly passed. Both of the other diners were regulars and repeat business like that is always a good indicator of a good restaurant. My shrimp arrived and they were delicious. Only one small thing set back my rating on this restaurant and that was the battle against flies. The restaurant is an indoor/outdoor kind of place and it would be hard to slow down the flies without some real aggressive action. But other than that, I was delight with the restaurant, the service, the food and the other friendly diners I found there. I will definitely return to try out their grill specialties in the near future.

Another gem in the many great restaurants in Lake Chapala. We had the Calamari and Onion rings both were delicious. Besides our waiter we had a wonderful young lady who took care of our needs.

Expensive food, a limited menu, and nothing to rave about gave us a meh feeling. We don't choose to eat here and only go when friends who like it ask us to meet them there.

There are so many good dishes and they are consistent. We've never had a bad meal there. The arrachera is the best in the area. It's tender and very tasty. I never found this in the States. The Pork Chimorro is very tender and the red sauce is so tasty. Other favorites are the Chile en Nogada, the best., the pork loin and the burrito especial. The Clam Chowder in a bread bowl is excellent too. The pumpkin pie is the best in ther area. Lori and her husband Carlos are the owners and Lori is everywhere with her assistants to make sure everyone is taken care of. Great service. If you have special dietary requirements, they will adjust their menu as much as can they can to accommodate you. It is not a vegetarian/vegan place per se. Parking is easy and plentiful.

What a Treat! Yesterday I enjoyed Pork Shank with the best cooked vegetables in Lake Chapala. I know, I know, half-cooked to raw vegetables are health-wise. But to need a knife to cut such vegetables is a little much. Service is great, food great, prices great. Yes, I will be going back.

Had a great lunch, with friends , like a first full meal in a week yesterday with friends at El Fogon de Charlotte. I really like and frequent this restaurant. The owner Lori knows how to do business. I had the Chiles en Nogada special for only 130 pesos and it includes a large chili, covered with walnut cream sauce and a decent sized salad with as much dressing as you like. I ate every single drop, clean plate club and even took a carrot cake to go. I for sure will be back. Only not great thing is the libramiento noise.
