Thread: El Fogoncito

  1. #1

    Paseo El Fogoncito

    This is the new spot on the SE corner of 30th & Walker, which was partitioned off from the existing convenience store.

    I stopped to check on progress and met the owner Emilio who was there doing a bunch of the work himself. Little hard to tell but there is a bunch of really mice Mexican tile throughout.

    It will be Mexican food featuring authentic el pastor and other fresh items.

    They hope to be open in about a month.

    I was just told by neighborhood security (Edgemere Park) that El Fogoncito opened yesterday. Going for lunch and will report back.

    Went for lunch and everything was excellent.... Had guacamole and queso appetizers and both were great.

    Went with the taco lunch (4 tacos for $7.50). Had picadillo, chorizo, pastor, and carnitas and enjoyed all of them very much. I also thought both of the sauces were really good too.... Will definitely be going back regularly!

    I went for lunch today as well.

    See the post above for the full menu.



    They just opened yesterday (Monday). Hours are 10:30 to 10 M-TH, 10:30 to 1AM FR-SA and 10:30 to 7PM on Sundays.

    For now they are only selling low-point beer but hope to get a full liquor license later.

    Their specialty is al pastor, which you see in the last picture; it's the traditional shawarma spit-grilled meat.

    I had the 4-taco dinner, with 2 al pastor, 1 carnitas and 1 picadillo (ground beef).

    All were very, very good and absolute ton of food for $7.50. I loved the al pastor, which is closest to the camera in the 2nd photo below. It came with little chunks of pineapple and the meat was wonderfully tender and flavorful.

    In addition to the complimentary chips and salsa (also very good) they provide 3 different squeeze bottles of different hot sauces: red was the spiciest, orange-ish had a peanut flavor, and green was more mild. Loved both the red and orange and didn't even try the green because I was too hooked on those.

    The 3rd photo is of the Queso Fundido which I didn't try but looked fantastic.

    The proprietor Emilio is just the friendliest, kindest guy; had met him once before while he was doing the build-out, mostly by himself.

    Great little spot and that al pastor is legit.

    The chorizo was some of the best I've eaten. I've never seen picadillo anywhere else I frequent... The carnitas had great flavor but was just a slight bit dry. The pastor was tasty and the bits of pineapple really took it over the top flavor wise.

    That 4 taco lunch special is a pretty good deal too... Comes to $1.88 a taco and all my tacos were stacked high with filling.... Granted I shared some queso and guacamole too but I was stuffed when we left.

    I was thinking that taco lunch special isn't bad when you consider they're normally 3.25 a piece!

    It's a lot of food, especially when you throw in the chips and salsa.

    Nice to see them do al pastor the traditional way. I was told (incorrectly, I guess) that Oklahoma State Health Dept. rules forbade the use of the doner to make pastor in Oklahoma. Good to see that was a false alarm.

    Looking forward to checking this place out.

    after seeing the pics, i had to try this place out... so our office went today.

    i tried a plate of tacos: pastor x 2, chicken, and asada... everything was amazing and 4 for $7.50 is a steal, especially since chips and salsa are included. loved the artwork, the big windows and the overall atmosphere of the place. it's definitely going on rotation in the 'taqueria' lineup.

    Yep.... It's not going to replace Hugo's for me on Tuesdays (Can't beat $1 tacos and they have chicharrone tacos) but it's going to cut into my Rafita's trips for sure.

  19. Default Re: El Fogoncito

    The chips and salsa were NOT included, at least for me. They charged me around $6 for them. The $7.50 taco platter ended up costing me $15.00 with a soft drink. I was not happy, and won't be back.

    Are you an owner, Pete? Why are you censoring my posts?

    I had the al pastor and asada tacos. Super delicious, but tiny at $3.75 per after 4:00pm. Is there anywhere else in the metro doing al pastor on a trompo (vertical spit)?

    No, not an owner.

    I'm betting you were there after 4:00 pm. The chips and salsa were complimentary and the tacos were $3.25-3.75 each as individually listed on the menu. Although it isn't stated on the menu, the lunch special 4/$7.50 ends at 4:00 (they told me when I tried to order it). I won't be going back after 4:00 unless I'm prepared to drop $20 on one of their dinners and a drink.
