La Fogata: Authentic Mexican cuisine with award winning margaritas

SAN ANTONIO - La Fogata is possibly one of the best places to get a wide variety of authentic Mexican cuisine as well as the best margaritas I've ever had.

You enter the restaurant through a courtyard filled with neon lights, tropical palms, flowers and flowing fountains. The blue tiled tables add to the authentic feel.

La Fogata has many crazy-good margaritas and they are always stirring up something new. Of course they have their original, strawberry and mango, but if you want to try the crazy-good, go for the Chamoy or their New Prickly Pair, its a new kick with a great taste.

They only use premium tequila which blends perfectly in their margaritas.

Pro Tip: The margaritas may go down easy, but they are very strong and can have you stumbling on the floor before you know it. I’d suggest a three drink limit.

You can have your margarita on the rocks, frozen, with or without salt -- whatever way you can think to make a margarita, La Fogata can do it.

Just so you know how good they are, they have won so many awards that they decided to retire from the San Antonio Margarita Pour Off just to give the competition a chance.

Eating their food is like taking a trip south of the border, with a wide variety of dishes packed with amazing flavors. La Fogata has tacos, enchiladas, soups, fajitas and so much more. Check out their menu...

I recommend the Tacos Nortenos, which is a crispy corn tortilla packed with tender beef fajita meat, Oaxaca cheese, cabbage, frijoles refritos, avocado and queso fresco. It's served with rice and beans. It’s my absolute favorite. Every bite is just amazing.

If you're planning a party, La Fogata also provides a catering service with a unique menu, a complete wait staff, bar service and they even do decorations. Click here for more information...
