San Diego Restaurant Reviews

   En Fuego

by Amy Covington

En Fuego has long been known as a Del Mar “hot spot,” which is one reason why its name is so fitting. Loosely translated as “On Fire,” En Fuego is the place to be on a sunny afternoon or after work for happy hour or a cozy dinner outside under one of their heat lamps.

En Fuego burst onto the scene in 1930, then known as La Tienda. Famous for their tangy margaritas and South of the Border fare, En Fuego serves up spicy numbers like grilled chicken chili rellenos, shredded pork tamales, grilled calamari tortas and carne asada burritos. Choose from five tasty fajitas, six salads, and lots of tacos, quesadillas and enchiladas.

John Wingate, owner of En Fuego, knew what he was doing when in 1995, he opened his doors for business on opening day at the Del Mar Race Track,making this



popular day in Del Mar an anniversary for one of its most endearing restaurants.

En Fuego continues to do a brisk business, especially on Taco Tuesdays; when gitty diners help themselves to mahi mahi tacos and rolled beef tacos for $3.00 and chicken and black bean tacos for $2.00, washing it all down with their favorite 'rita, perhaps a Bubba’s Margarita or the Legendary Mango Margarita.

Whether you are meeting friends after work or want a romantic dinner, En Fuego’s tropical outdoor setting will accommodate. There is a patio and bar area and several cozy nooks for those who want a private dining experience.
