Del Fuego never disappoints. The loaded guacamole is a favorite and all of the different salsas too. The burritos are my favorite and you can always get it as a chimichanga too! Patio dining is awesome.

Guacamole best in town the warm chips with right level of salt was perfect. The watermelon ring with cinnamon was a nice surprise as well as the watermelon jello shot to end the night

Del Fuego is definitely a step up from most Mexican restaurants. Overall, the quality of their food tends to be more gourmet than most. I highly recommend that you try "all the salsa", an appetizer option that lets you sample all 8 of their freshly made salsas. They also do a wonderfully fresh guacamole that can be customized with a number of optional additions. I typically get the tacos here, and they never disappoint.

Great food and service. Loved that they were adhering to all Covid protocols, we felt very safe. Ryanne and Robert were our servers, and they, and our burritos and chimichangas, were out of this world! (I may have also put down a boat of queso on my own 😉)

We really enjoy the margaritas on a Friday after work. Seafood platter is a good deal since you get enough for four tacos when you go with the grilled fish and you get beans and rice. Churros are tasty withe the blueberry sauce.

Let me tell you something. The people here are phenomenal. Food phenomenal. Atmosphere is phenomenal. If I am using a certain word too much well guess what. They are phenomenal. Ryanne, I can't think of the gentleman from out of town's name or the tall male bartender's name but they were all amazing. They make it feel like you are visiting family. But I guess when you used to go there at least once a week you can't help but get to know the staff a little. They are so welcoming. Del Fuego owner they all need bonuses right now. The food is aweeeeesome. Everything is so fresh and the menu items are a nice twist to traditional Mexican food. I mean who comes up with items such as the "Eggroll burrito?" I've had that the past three times and I can not wait to try the Lamb burrito. Do not take that off the menu until I try it. Queso fundido with the homemade tostadas. I'm smacking my lips just typing this. Shishito peppers....Delicious. Tacos...Delicious. And I'm not one to knock a joint but the Rum house down the street is always poppin for some reason. Stay down there people and leave this not so hidden gym alone so I can make my reservations with ease. Food taste is not even close between these two. Or any other restaurant I've eaten In that type of cuisine. Someone says Mexican food in the New Orleans area and Fuego is my number one choice. And don't get me started on the drinks. All fresh fruit options are incredible additions to the traditional margaritas. This time I had the watermelon and the wifey had the blueberry. Incredible. The only bad part that made me mad was the fact that I could only have one drink (wifey's orders). Only other bad part is my moms mistakingly threw away my little del Fuego cup by mistake thinking it was trash. So sad. I can't wait until you guys put those out again. Keep up the good work guys! We'll see yall soon!

We loved dining at Del Fuego, this being our first visit!
Beginning with the ambiance: the lovely color scheme of the dining room & fun music really made for an exciting time.
The staff: they made us feel like family & had the best recommendations on tequila & food.
The food & cocktails: I highly recommend the Queso Fundido, Loaded Guacamole, Mexican pizza & Tres Hermanos Make it Wet.
I loved the different fresh seasonal juices of margaritas (I tried cucumber & blueberry, my boyfriend had hibiscus & grapefruit)
Sooo delicious.
Definitely will return (hopefully weekly!)

noise level was high. I would not characterize it as energetic. It was way too loud to have a conversation. Perhaps some people like it but I prefer dining at places where I can hear my dinner companions. The waiter was so arrogant. Screw that, I won't be back.

Great food, drinks, ambiance and staff. Only thing I would recommend is that they let you know upfront there is a 22% living wage (a.k.a. tip) added to your bill.
