My husband and I picked this restaurant from our map app because we were in the area for a concert. We needed something quick and wanted Mexican food. We were seated promptly, even though the place was crowded. The wait staff brought us nachos and sauces immediately and took our drink order. The food was good and we did not... More

We love Mexican food. The more authentic the better. We really like La Fogata. They have some great authentic flavors and dishes. Our favorite is lengua (beef tongue) tacos! They are amazing! The most flavorful and tender anywhere in the area! And their salsa bar is awesome--lots of options! And their chicken tortilla soup is the best!

We frequent this restaurant often. There food is plentiful and the menu is extensive. They do a "good" job understanding exceptions or additions we want when ordering. It can be difficult to substitute menu items or customizing your order at most authentic Mexican restaurant but La Fogata in Simpsonville does a great job... There Salsa bar is great and they...

This is hands down the best Mexican food in simpsonville, and possible even the entire Greenville area. Can't go wrong with the fajitas or the arroz con pollo. Free bean dip and really good salsa. Good service too. We are weekly regulars here and all other Mexican doesn't cut it.
