I've been a fan of this place for over ten years and have been meaning to add my two cents to these reviews. If you like Mexican made with fresh, healthy ingredients, you should definitely try La Fogata. I'm so tired of Mexican food made with greasy, heavy sauces that just coverup the taste of the actual food. Everything at La Fogata, from the grilled chicken and steak(that is actually grilled to order) to the homemade salsas is delicious. I've never been disappointed by the food or service there. And contrary to other reports, the people are great! I've met the owners and manager a few times and they couldn't be nicer guys.

This was literally the BEST BURRITO I have EVER had,The food was very good and the service very attentive. I've driven by this place many times while heading to and from Hillsboro without ever giving much thought to stopping in. We finally hit it up today...we should've done it sooner!

We were seated right away.
Our server Chrystine checked in with us multiple times and kept our drinks full.
Food was very fresh and delicious tasting...served quickly too.
Delicious Fried Ice Cream...be sure to order some.
Mex. restaurants tend to all taste and feel the same, but this one was just 20% better in every way.

OUR FAVE!!! This is the BEST MEXICAN FOOD to be found in Beaverton, possibly the Grtr Metro Area!
[Those who have experienced long waits, etc. probably went on Cinco de Mayo, when the place was swamped! (We have never had any problems except that nite, & we completely understood--they had a waiting list 30-40 minutes long.)]
They have wonderful options, especially ""Build Your Own Burrito""--huge (too much for one meal) & just the way you want it, coz you order everything that is in it & on top of it.
We highly recommend this place to anyone who likes Mexican food.

Since me and my gf work in the restaurant bussiness, we like to try new restaurants all the time, its our passion. La Fogata has been our favorite spot for a while now. We love the interior. The good food and the attentive service make the whole experience in LF wonderful. They have the best Mexican food (we are hard to impress). We recommend this place either for bussiness meetings, a date or special occasions.Biggest outside seating in town. This restaurant is complete. Congruatulations to the Owners, you are doing a really good job. Try the Birria de Chivo and The Cielo Mar y Tierra with a BombRita a 16oz blended Margarita with a 4oz Coronita bottle INSIDE!!! REFRESHING!!!
I started a city search account specifically to facilitate writing a review on La Fogata, literally, the worst Mexican restaurant on the planet. 45 minutes to get our drinks, hour and a half plus to get our food. When we complained the food was cold and had been overcooked and asked to speak with the manager, the coward Bennie told his waitstaff to tell us he had left and refused to speak with us. He than accused us of being desperate and trying to take advantage of the restaurant because of the economy. Whatever you do, do not waste your money on this strip mall dump. The worst restaurant experience of my entire life, and I have dined on 6 continents, so that's saying something.
Looks like nobody but family of the owners gets decent service at this dump. On the recommendation of family friends we came to this poor excuse for a restaurant. It took over an hour to get our food, when it arrived it was cold and overcooked. Our waitress was kind but she could do nothing to alleviate our complaints and when asked to speak with her manager, she informed us he had already gone home. Called back the next day to speak with the manager and inform him of our poor experience and he was completely dismissive of our complaints, told us we had nothing to talk about. Needless to say, would not return to this place if my life depended on it.
