Place where locals eat. We left all inclusive resort twice for a meal here. It isn’t fancy but food is great especially if you like meat. Prices were amazing. Dinner plus a drink cost $25 total for 2. Line to get in but it moves quickly.

We have eaten here many, many, many times. Service always friendly, quick and efficient.

Guacamole is yum and I always have the pastor tacos with cheese and flour tortillas. My boyfriend usually has the steak tacos and he raves about then.

They make amazing margaritas and when you see a lot of locals eating here, you know you are in a good spot.

We, of course, went to El Fogon because of all the good reviews. And we went back because of the great food...and the best pina coladas in Playa by far. We had everything from sandwiches to nachos and, of course, the tacos. Everything was perfect and delicious, simple and so flavorful. And the prices are great. El Fogon is a must for anyone visiting Playa.
