    Relax as you dine amidst La Fogata's lushly planted patios with splashing fountains and cantera stone columns, all of which create the atmosphere of a gracious Mexican hacienda. Read more

    I don't like Mole anything, but I could drink their Mole sauce. I usually have it doused on enchiladas but it would be amazing with anything. You will not be disappointed! Love sitting on the patio!

    Drinks were pricy, but decently strong. Carne a La Tampiquena and fajitas were delicious. Best Mexican restaurant in SA IMO.

    The margarita's are FANTASTIC! No wonder they are the best in San Antonio. Sit back enjoy your flaming queso & the mariachi music.

    Big huge tex-mex plates. Rice, Beans, Enchiladas. Prepare to run it off the next day. Ambience is cool here. Drinks are classic.

    The Green Enchiladas are awesome. Top Shelf Margarita or call your own Margarita are worth it!

    We waited an hour for our food, which wasn't the best either. The margaritas are okay, but you can get better for cheap and along with a better meal.

    We waited over two hours for our table even though we had reservations. It was a special occasion, so definitely not ok to keep 20 people waiting like that. Will never go back there!!!

    Beans were cold, tea tastes old, and tacos were not worth what you pay for them. Come for the tequila, stay for the atmosphere.
