New menu showcasing many old family recipes. Great food, excellent service and the best Mexican garden dining atmosphere. A must try when visiting San Antonio.

Following a botched dinner at the hotel, I was recommended to La Fogata and it did not disappoint. From the outdoor seating, to the enjoyable atmosphere, to the customer service and finally the food; every bit of this visit was great. Definitely worth the trip for some authentic Mexican fod.

I liked the food but it was not great. Ordered the carnitas and they were hot and plentiful but overall not much that made me say wow. Service (all the staff) were very pleasant and helpful. It is an interesting place with all the lights and probably worth going to if you are visiting SA but if you are looking... More

This place has been around for quite a while and the food is just as good as when I went the first time. Great atmosphere and a great place for outdoor seating! Good place to also take anyone visiting from out of town. Don't pass this place up.

A bit of rice with tasteless charro beans. Taco cabana's food is tastier. My wife had cheese enchiladas... not bad, a bit cold. Overall, for... More

An out of towner I visited with a friend. I really like the outdoor layout. The food is absolutely rock solid. And the salsa is a great smoky flavor that is known to cause increased virility, people will generally like you more, and at the first taste your life will have newfound meaning. It's rumored that Angelina left Brad because... More

If you are coming here for Tex-Mex, this is the wrong restaurant for you. This is much closer to Mexico or Spain than to border town Tex Mex. My wife went here for lunch while on vacation in San Antonio, and were quite happy with it. The setting is beautiful, bright, open, beautiful patio dining, or inside in bright atmosphere.We... More

Menu has changed since my previous visit . Mango margaritas are delicious, as are twin towers margarita. Salsa is outstanding. Flautas and enchiladas and guacamole a mano are my favorites. A negative for me is main parking lot is only Valet.
