This restuarant is a must if have a chance to sit down and relax . The service is slow but that is normal in Central America because unlike the US , the restaurants want you to enjoy your time instead of turning the table. I enjoyed the fine cuts of meat the chorizo was excellent. The price was well inline... More

Haven't return for a while, don't know if I'll go back. Everything about it is ok; now, the attraction are Saturday nights, there's a dance group and it's a pretty good atmosphere.

Hmm hard to describe. Perhaps I was too used to the Monterey style tacos and that's why I found their tacos super greasy. Service is on the good side though music is a bit too loud. Their 2x1 deal is such a scam. A dish worth 160Lps goes to 260Lps on the 2x1 promo which is more like a 1.3x1.... More

Not as good as the one in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, but pretty decent. It is located in what I call the "safe zone" of San Pedro Sula (if you move fast enough and go straight from your hotel and back), close to hotels and malls.

Here you can find different kinds of food, more like in a mexican style, the decor is like a mexican place and some they they have a dance crew like coyote ugly. They have good specials like 2x1, or family day, etc.

We met some clients of ours for diner. It took the waiter 30 minutes to bring us the menus, even though it is a small establishment, I do not know how you overlook bringing the menus. The food was good, but the service was horrible. Our waiter went to our table a total of 4 times in a 3 hour... More

El Fogoncito serves Mexican food, but prices are rather steep, servings are not generous and the atmosphere at night is extremely noisy, much more of a bar atmosphere than a restaurant. They have nightly shows with dancers on the bar with extremely loud music.
