“Fuego Cantina” is a “hot” restaurant in the heart of Five Points South, which offers Tex-Mex cuisine. The bar offers daily happy hour specials, and the prices are cheap/reasonable. Also the bar has an extensive drink menu, so you have plenty of choices. I visited “Fuego Cantina”, last week, with two of my friends and we had an awesome time!



We arrived about 8:30pm, after spending a few minutes searching for parking spots. Fortunately I found a spot in front of the restaurant, but everyone else had a short walk. Next, we went inside, and waited for the host to seat us.



I really like the relaxed atmosphere of “Fuego Cantina”. Inside, the walls are painted bright red and orange, there’s funky contemporary Mexican decor, and the theme is “Mexican Wrestling” or “Lucha Libre”. “Lucha Libre” is the Mexican version of the United States’ “WWE” . When I went to Mexico, I was fortunate enough to have gone to one of the “Lucha Libre” matches. This theme is carried throughout the entire restaurant with paintings and graffiti, all of which reflect wrestling. The decor isn’t excessive, it’s just the right amount of stuff!

I don't know why this restaurant gets such bad reviews. Everything we had there was very good, from the corn and crab nachos to the steak soft tacos with fried jalapeños on top. The cheese dip and chips were great too. Give it a chance!

Delicious. Try the tacos and chimichanga.

Came in for dinner at 4:30 on Saturday. Ashton was our waitress and was excellent. Refilled our water atat least 3 times, and helped with menu recommendations. Had the streak tacos and enjoyed them. Wife liked her burrito. Well definitely return, and ask for Ashton's section.

I've been to Fuego three times for the tacos. I've only ordered tacos and they've always been great. I'm surprised to see so many negative reviews. On $2 taco night, which I've been to once, you can expect there to be a wait and the wait staff to be a little overwhelmed. By the way, if you are getting your tacos for half the price make sure you are not leaving a crappy tip.
