OC Weekly's Description

The guerrerense specials hide behind a long menu chockablock with fajitas,
ceviches, wet burritos and other American favorites. You can find aporriado
at some Michoacán-style restaurants in Orange County, but nowhere like this:
beef dried so that the outside is beef jerky, the inside as succulent as
carne asada, chopped up and served alongside rice and beans. The most famous
dish is pozole verde, and El Fogón stews it fresh daily, with the stock
created from boiling a pig's head (don't worry: they don't serve that meat
in the dish). Pork, pozole, and who-knows-what herbs come together in a
bowl, radiantly green, hearty and crunchy yet a bit tart: a must-taste
Orange County soup.

Tips from foursquare

    The salsas got a kick!

  • Sam on 12/30/12

    Get the green Pozole. It's their specialty and really good.
