If you are a fan of Mexican food then La Fogata is the place for you. They serve delicious chips and salsa to start and then have a variety of authentic Mexican dishes. There is also a great outside area where you can sit in the summer and in the winter they close it in so you are nice and warm.
They have large servings and with the chips, margaritas and your meal you will not leave hungry.
