Our Famous Margaritas
Best Margaritas in San Antonio

No matter how you like your margarita, La Fogata is the place for you—and every other margarita drinker in the city. Since 1997, this San Antonio Mexican restaurant has stirred up more than 1.6 million margaritas, placing a signature edible orchid in each generous 16 ounce serving. Most restaurants pour 12 ounce glasses, but La Fogata’s margaritas are too good for such a small glass!

Margarita Pour Off Champions
We’re proud to say that La Fogata has won the San Antonio Margarita Pour Off so many years in a row that we’ve retired from the competition! You’ll taste the difference in your first sip. We use 100 percent blue agave tequila, fresh lime and agave nectar to give our margaritas the perfect flavor.
