I belong to rewards network, and on their website, Fuego had the best reviews of anyone in Phoenix, and they had over 150 reviews to date, I also checked their Yelp rating, and it seemed to be in line, then went on citysearch, consistent great reviews... This place is unlike anything in Phoenix... They are really tucked away in a little courtyard behind Appollo's.. They have like 7 tables, but they also have a real strong patio... So for abience.. it's like way cute and has tons of urban charm.. First of .. quite possibly the best sangria in town... better than lola's, ticoz, or barrio... just had real unique flavor that tasted diffrent than most... second.. the food.. read a couple of reviews about portion size.. now I don't know if a couple of these reviewers are used to going to sweet tomatoes or Ponchos mexican buffet, but you are smoking something if yuou think these portions are small.. in this price range.. potions actually get smaller, but the quality gets better.. no, it's not cheesecake factory sizes, but when compared to Fuego's competition..(Barrio, Padres, Sierra Bonita, Coronado cafe) their portions and prices were right in line, not to mention better food, one of the reviewers refered to it as spanish food, which this isn't so what do I know? I think this place has a ton going for it.. fntastic food, great service from true phoenix urbanites, and to me, atmosphere that is unmatched in the city....It is really hard to find restaurants that have that untangable component of doing something unique... Fuego has metal menus, a querky, eclectic feel, REAL POEPLE working there that actually look like they enjoy working there, If your looking for cookie cutter, this place probably isn'r for you, but if you like seeking out diamonds in the ruff, Fuego Bistro is an awesome find...
Pros: The 3 big ones... Food, ambiance, service
Cons: Not enough food? just kidding!
