La Fogata

The original location of La Fogata, on East Evans Avenue, was opened by Danette Calhoun back in 1990 and in 2004, a second spot was added in the Denver Tech Center. Both eateries are staples in their neighborhoods, and regulars are greeted warmly by longtime staff. The thick, warming, gravy-style green chile is one of the best versions in town, and the pink-hued house margarita pairs perfectly with menu standouts like the Mexican hamburger and pollo asado bathed in a creamy sauce.
