Wonderful service and great tasting food. The menu has traditional offerings but it they interesting twists on some of the traditional fare. The atmosphere very nice, light and airy with a festive feel. The patio is very impressive with a beautiful water fall/fountain,

This place is just amazing, and we keep trying to compare with other Mexican restaurants, but keep coming back to El Fuego. We always order the Traditional Chicken Enchiladas or Chimichanga and they are served HOT and the portions are very generous, which we love!...More

I have eaten here a few times for lunch. There are several lunch combos but still a bit high for lunch. The chicken fajita lunch is decent but little actual chicken mostly peppers and onions.
