Their lunches are worth the drive to. From quesadillas to enchiladas to burritos they are all fantastic. And it's a must that you have the house margarita

I recently visited this restaurant with a friend. I was very happy with the quality of food and the service. The waitress was very attentive and accommodating throughout our long visit. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My family loves La Fogata. The service is always warm and friendly, and prompt. The food is delicious. We can't get enough of the salsa, and the green chili. The menu is large and diverse. Its a well run restaurant off the beaten path.

Last night (1/14/17) we thought we would try LacFogata- big mistake.. First the visit started with the surly hostess, not only surly, but I am somewhat mobility impaired and this girl took off from the hostess station like a runner out of the starting blocks. Did I mention there was no smile, no good evening- JUST "How many" and she... More

i love this place because of the fresh ingredients. there are no canned sauces or prepackaged salsa or guacamole. the result is that everything tastes exceptional. the house magaritas are also not watered down. the tacos barachas and pork tacos are the best! but the steak fajitas are also amazing.

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.
