Very Upset Long Time Customer. I have been coming to La Fogata since I was a little girl, I'm in my thirties now. My father, who the staff knows by name brings clients here. This past weekend while waiting, we had a cocktail waitress pad our bill so much that it was over $100 for 7 margaritas. She didn't bring the itemized receipt and looked nervous when she brought the bill. We overhead the table next to us and this happened to them also. When did the staff become so dishonest?! I am extremely disappointed.
Decent Food. Nothing really stood out. The service was a bit slow, and our waiter seemed to be forgetful. The food was pretty good, but the chips were a bit stale.
Awesome patio and great food. One of the best if not the best patios in town. Love the tacos nortenos. Also the mole enchiladas rock the house.
Excellent Experience!. Wow, it was REALLY good! Had the ceviche, rajas chile pablano, enchiladas mixtas, and the margarita. Excellent across the board. Service was top notch Very friendly. Prompt. Plenty of parking. I went "off-peak" hours...so lunch / dinner must be busy (longer wait). But either way, wait or no wait...definitely worth it! Highly recommend La Fogata...and will be back.
Great Food, Atmosphere and Margaritas. Nestled between I 10 and 410 on Vance Jackson, La Fogata is one of the premier Mexican Food Restaurants in San Antonio. Upon arrival, you stroll into a bustling courtyard complete with fountains and patio ware not to mention the large warming fire pits and heaters during the winter. Be sure to get there early as there is almost always a long waiting list for a table. Also be sure to grab an award winning margarita at the window bar near the hostess stand, and do not hesitate to upgrade to "Top shelf" status because it is only a dollar more. The atmosphere eats the waiting time as you drink your "Top Shelf" Margaritas with your company. Upon seating, you will soon find a server at your table offering appetizers and taking a drink order. Soon, your chips and salsa will arrive fresh and hot. There are multiple salsas made in house so do not hesitate to ask the server about additional selections. Soon you will be ordering your fresh and traditional mexican meal. Feel free to try the "Um poquito de Todo" for a selection of favorites from the house. Also excellent is the enchilada assortment with which comes rice and beans.
Great ambiance and great food. I absolutely loved this restaurant! My boyfriend and I had been wanting to try it so we finally went the last time I went to SA to visit him. At first it looked really crowded and we couldn't find parking so we drove by, but we decided to go back and wait. We were so happy we did that because it was such a great meal. The wait really was not that long and the setting was really nice; you felt like you were not in the city at all. Plus you can have margaritas while you wait! The margaritas were really fantastic. I ordered the taco norteno plate and my boyfriend ordered a plate that came with a taco, quesadilla, fajitas and I don't know what else. All the food was really great. I can't wait to go back on my next trip!
Excellent Margarittas!!. My husband and I went there while on vacation and we had just a WONDERFUL time! The waiters were great...the food was great...the drinks were great!! I recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxed and delightful dining experience!
Forget La Fogata. As advertised - the Margarita's were not bad - service and food quality were sub-standard.
Never miss this one for evening atmosphere. Great place to relax and people watch while waiting to be seated. If you are a patio person request outside seating. The firepit is great on a cool evening. Beautiful lighting at night. Can handle big parties with ease. The only gripe is the $10 price of having the group sing a requested song. This should be pointed out BEFORE they sing. Maybe put a sign on the tables. So I recommend just listening while they play for others. Otherwise, this is THE place.
Great Food for a Great Price. We took our daughter there for her birthday on January 1st and the food was excellent. The service and prices were great too. The scenery was totally awesome. We dined indoors but had a full view of the outdoor patio through large glass walls. We were entertained by birds bathing in the outdoor water fountains. The restaurant walls also had beautiful "Old Mexico" decor. Mariachis came over and serenaded our daughter and the night turned out to be a memorable night for our daughter. I highly recommend this restaurant to all those in San Antonio and in other cities. We are from Poteet, so the 45 mile drive was well worth it.
