You get to select the fillings you would like and watch as they make them right in front of you. You get 3 in an order for about $7 and it is a good portion with all of the items that you can have them...More

Always. always good food! Get there before the Noon lunch rush as seating will be an issue. Although the line may be long, they move pretty quickly.

Had lunch at "El Fuego" The burrito was delicious, great value for money, and the staff were kind and friendly. The only complaint was the cleanliness of the place, which could use an improvement.

Be prepared to wait at peak lunch time, and don't plan on eating inside Fuego with the limited seating. Excellent chorizo, but you're probably better off at a Chipotle for anything else, because you'll get more for your money and friendlier service. The portion sizes...More
