Came with my two friends and wow! Zia is an amazing waitress. So attentive and friendly. She made our experience amazing. Great view and great drinks as always. Inside is a bit dark and gloomy but outside is so nice! Had perfect margaritas and pollo loco and was very good. Had a flan for my birthday and it was so delicious. Great job Zia!!

Food was decent. My wife's fish was a little dry but she loved the grilled veggies...my shrimp dish was XLNT. Server pleasant, asked if our meals were good, but we had to ask for more chips. She never refilled our water.... Bartender made a 'rita straight up per my request. It was good..... Cold on the patio with heating units inconsistently distributed. Overall, out-of-towners, our second visit in 3 years. Would still return again. 3.5 for weak table service.

I dined here for my birthday Xia was my server and we had an excellent time! Xia was so friendly and knowledgeable. We dined on the patio and everyone was social distancing I felt very safe. My margaritas were delicious and the fajitas some of the best I've ever had. Will definitely be recommending to my friends and family!

Drinks were fine but drinks are drinks. Carnitas are overpriced and overcooked/dry. Try something else. Salsa and tortillas are good though.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food while in San Antonio. Amazing salsa. Not your usual tomatoe based salsa. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

We very much enjoy sitting under the 2000 year old oak tree and eating Camarones and drinking Margaritos!To all the people that gave La Fogata 1 star. Try it again and you will be very happy you did. Unless you own a competing restaurant and are unhappy they are on your turf. If so, make better food and then maybe customers will come and see you.As for us, La Fogata is outstanding!!

Even with social distancing rules enforce, we still were able to dine al fresco. The food was excellent as always but on the pricey side, probably mostly due to the ambience.

Food and atmosphere was nice. We ate outside. Service stinky. We were never greeted, told any specials, 1 menu per table or thanked. Maybe they were practicing " Customer Distancing".

What a wonderful experience we had using their meeting room. We had a group of 40 and the care from the staff was 5 stars. The party room was excellent was able to use their projection and monitor for skype and video presentation. Manager Roy and his staff were the best. This Anniversary gathering was the best experience. Quality of the Food, Service and atmosphere made this a memorable experience for the Anniversary couple.

We had a large party/meeting tonight with about 70 guests. The party room was perfect for our meeting. It was spacious and had a projection screen for our business.Roy, Fernanda, Camille, and Theresa (I believe) were so easy to work with. Execution was perfect. The food was delicious and the drinks were well-made and beautiful. All the guests raved about the entire meal and the atmosphere.This will definitely NOT be our last meeting here. Cheers!

This place is a hidden gem! Beautiful scenery right off the freeway and close to Fiesta Texas. Courtyard area with games, large trees and greenery on the patio. Food is good and service was very top notch! Live music Thursday through Sat night and Sunday afternoon.

Mole enchiladas were very good! So were enchiladas verdes. Outside was perfect until it started to rain. The trees and patio are beautiful, but when we started to go inside it's kind of dark and drab. Maybe a first poor impression, and perhaps unfinished as everything was obviously new.Go on a beautiful night with a date. Sit outside. Have margaritas and probably anything on the menu and he/she will fall madly in love with you - or at least the mole sauce!

Appetizer (queso) was cold and real thick, so maybe if was at least hot it might of even had a better taste. The entree was not very good, I had bottle beer because I was getting worried how they took care of everything else. First time to visit La Fogata Comida and was very disappointed and my party will not be back, will look for another establishment in the area.

We decided to try (again) a New Mexican restaurant with high hopes of finally find a great place. It was unfortunately another Mexican restaurant missing in the execution of great dishes.Menu was attractive and generous portraying a number of regional typical recipes from all over Mexico: Jalisco (Birria), Sinaloa (Tacos de Pescado), Puebla (Chile en Nogada), Yucatán (Mixiote), etc.I ordered a Caldo de Pollo that was generously served in size but poorly executed with very little chicken and I vegetable amounts. Tacos al Pastor: very disappointed to have the stew meat coming from a crock pot! Sacrilege!A tasteless Vegetarian Poblano assembled without any creativity beyond trowing a mix of peas/carrots/corn in a Poblano pepper.Service was good and attentive and it was the best part of the "experience".Desserts were mediocre at best... burnt flan and below average sopapillas.All these for a very good amount of money. Not worthy.We will not go back and We will continue looking for a good restaurant that understands the importance of Mexican food well executed...

Great food and excellent service. We tried this location because it was close to us. The food was exactly the same as the original location. I had the Calabacita con Carne de Puerco. It was tender and flavorful. The Margaritas are some of the best in the city.

Review №51

You can surmise immediately where most of the money went for the scant amount of updating that was done to the former Aldaco's here. The deck has been spiffied up with new planking (looks like the composite stuff - "Trex"). The front door is now a facade reminiscent of some Andalusian fortification with protective blisters like some medieval shield and a portal that opens onto the deck with access to the main dining room a few steps away through the usual glass doors.The subdued light inside the restaurant gives way to the soft glow of wall sized neon letters spelling out the restaurant's name while giving the place the gritty feel of a border cantina stuffed with "Ugly Americans" (deference to authors Burdick and Lederer). The hard surfaces of the concrete floor and the mostly unadorned walls keep the conversational ebb rebounding like overfilled basketballs off impervious surfaces while building to a crescendo such that the place begins to vibrate with a harmonic undulation. I.e., It's still as noisy as it was before!. And did I mention that the former square footage of the place was reduced by half. I suppose if the restaurant does well enough they might move the new wall back and reclaim the former space. In actuality, the interior is plenty big considering the extra dining space that is gained by the deck in fair weather.Since I was feeling some cross-the-border vibe here, I decided to do what I used to do when visiting untried restaurants in border town Mexico. I told the waiter to "Traiga me un poquito de todo", or bring me a little of everything and he did. Actually there is a menu item by this very name. It contains a cheese enchilada with meat gravy, a chicken flauta, bowl of beans, rice, a pepper quesadilla and a beef fajita taco. .The beef fajita taco with fresh pico was the star by far. The only improvement for me would be to the flauta with chicken meat that was so stewed as to have that finely minced, extruded mouth feel. The food could have been hotter as well. One of our dinner party had ordered a chile relleno and it was undercooked and cold. The kitchen attempted to revive it, but it was ultimately and sufficiently d.o.a. such that the manager acknowledged the faux pas and obsequiously credited the charge from the bill. And that was a volunteered action once she was alerted to the problem (clap! clap!).You know that you are no longer inside Loop 410 as the prices carry a noticeable premium over what you would normally expect to pay in general for the same Tex-Mex treats elsewhere. That in itself could be a challenge for the new La Fog in making a go of it. However, that same pricing strategy doesn't seem to slow patrons down at the nearby Fralo's and other upper moderate Dominion area eateries so, quien sabe?

Review №56

I have never been but neighbors on the Next Door bulletin board are ripping this place to shreds with how lousy it is, both in food and service. If I posted a star for their cumulative rating it would be a zero. Therefore, I will not even give it a try. If a restaurant cannot keep people in their own zip code happy (78256) my guess is they will be closing soon.

Ate there yesterday; Hostess could have been more friendly. I'd describe her as indifferent. Our waiter, Antonio, more than made up for her! He is *genuinely friendly and gave great service! The food was delicious and fresh. We did not care for the chips because we prefer thin chips. I feel the rice portion was child size. The decor is beautiful, especially outside. A manager checked on us to make sure we were happy. Overall a nice experience.

We went for lunch today, on this beautiful day in March and boy did it NOT disappoint. My favorite all time meal is the Enchilada Verdes, and they were to die for. Perfect garlic to salt ratio with them STUFFED full of chicken meat. Most of the time I get cheated on the meat (at other places). La Fogata staff did not let a glass go unfilled or a question unanswered. I will also encourage those with kids who can't sit still, like mine... to dine in the beautiful outdoor area. They have fenced in grass and a granite topped space with plenty of room to run around and play. Thank you so much for a great food and atmosphere!

Review №60

Genuinely confused by the ratings of this place. First, it is not $$ as google says. Overpriced for meh food - It was $16 for a dry piece of chicken with one grilled green onion, no sauce, and mediocre rice and beans. Service was super slow and very inattentive. Food took forever to come out. Outside atmosphere looked cool - inside atmosphere is bland.

Review №63

My family enjoyed their meals, basic enchiladas, but unfortunately I can't say the same. First he messed up my margarita, twice (I just drank water and paid for the drink the second time). Then he acted like I was annoying him when I ordered something from the menu the kitchen was out of. (Like I should have known ahead of time.) I quickly settled on the fish tacos. They were bland, oily, with rubbery tortillas. I'm still sick, going on 3 hours later. I was incredibly disappointed. We love the other one.

Food and service were both very good. My only complaint was the live music. It was too loud for my ears given the lack of acoustic absorbing material (concrete floor, hard walls, etc..). Otherwise, very happy (and stuffed!!)

Review №66

We ate there a few days ago and we made the mistake of sitting on their patio where swarms of flies attacked everything in sight. We had to cover our food and quickly eat with one hand using the other to swat the flies away. After 10 minutes, we gave up and took the fajitas to go. The food was average and overpriced, but the venue was terrible. I'd suggest the owner look into pest control measures if they want patrons to enjoy the patio.

Review №67

Wonderful experience. Passing by, we stopped in to check out their menu and met Claudio, who gave us some pointers and told us their mole is made in-house with fresh-ground ingredients. Later in the evening, we decided to come in for dinner. The food is authentic Mexican. We were greeted with a bowl of colorful chips and a tasty fire-roasted salsa. We ordered the Parrillada for Two and Un Poquito de Todo. The Parrillada was huge! Arrachera steak, lime marinated chicken, pork chops, jumbo shrimp and poblanos stuffed with chicken served on a bed of grilled vegetables. Loved all of it. The other plate was a bit of everything: enchilada, quesadilla (made with Oaxaca cheese!) flauta and steak taco. Everything was acompanied with charro beans and rice. Corn and flour tortillas were brought out fresh and tasted delicious. We asked for a taste of their mole for reference... I'm having their mole on our next visit! Our server, Tere, provided exceptional service. Although their Tres Leches has room for improvement, we will definitely be back.

Review №68

Better restaurants out there for the Dominion area prices. Chicken mole, chicken overcooked, not tender; mole too sweet. Chips and salsa flavor good, but chip portion very sparse. Flour tortillas below average. Had to remind server if tortillas came with dishes, when our dishes came out. Charro beans and rice okay.

Ate there last night with my mom and two brothers. Had the chicken fajitas. Tortillas were stale. Asked for fresh tortillas got served some more that were just as stale and hard. Woke up this morning feeling sick. Don't know if it was the chicken or old looking guacamole they served. Overpriced for the quality.

We had my Grandmothers 93rd Bday here. The food was mediocre at best. I got the Tacos Nortenos and my GF ordered a cheese Enchilada plate. The food was a bit on the bland side. We sat inside and had flies buzzing around our food. The margaritas were decent. When you walk into the restuarant there's a patio area with live music. The restuarant itself is very nice and visually appealing. I just wish the food was more up to par.

A group of 3 of us went on a Monday for lunch. The service was awfully slow. We waited over 15 minutes for our margaritas for every round we ordered. They weren't even busy. However, I have to admit that our food was incredible and the drinks were good. We ordered 3 different salads and their flor de calabaza quesadillas. Delicious! This particular location is beautiful. Especially out on the patio.

We are regulars here but tonight was an experience that will keep us away. We wanted to sit outside but only one heater worked. My margarita was good. I had a half order of nachos and my friend had the Calavacita (her regular). It had a rubber band in it which we found halfway through. Manager was not very apologetic, saying "the tortillas have rubber bands...do you want something else"? She replied no and he didn't even comp our meal. So if you need a hair tie for your hair....this is the place to go.

This location was VERY disappointing.The waiter offered my friend a free drink and at the end the bill was $15 more than the original bill he gave us so he basically charged us for that free drink.Then a few days later I check my bank account and I got charged extra from the restaurant. After calls back and forth it end up being that the waiter ADDED MORE TIP ON TOP OF WHAT I ALREADY GAVE HIM!! I was beyond livid and the manger was backing him up saying it was a mistake. I said that's not a mistake he knew what he was doing adding more tip to himself. THAT'S STEALING CUSTOMERS MONEY!!!If you go to that location please be careful if they offer y'all a free drink then charge you for it and then add more tip to themselves. please watch y'alls bank accounts. he added more tip for himself on my friends card too!!!! a total of $22 he tried to add for a tip. (Ridiculous)Just be aware, he probably does this a lot to people..thinking they won't notice.
