Our History
 

Historic and humble beginnings of this rustic paradise we call EN FUEGO. La Tienda (circa 1930), Del Mar’s original restaurant, hosted race track elites and Hollywood movie stars such as Bing Crosby and Pat O’Brien. El Pescador, with its famous chowder and fish sandwiches, was a Del Mar landmark throughout the 70’s and Baja Grill continued that popularity, which we still enjoy today. John Wingate opened En Fuego in July 1995, on Opening Day of the Race Track thus making the most popular day in our village, our anniversary! This locale has long been known for serving fresh traditional Mexican dishes and seafood. Our menu exemplifies the flavors of the Mexican Riviera. While visiting, please stroll around the restaurant and our wine bar next door, to see how we have helped to preserve some of Del Mar’s history while expanding to meet our clients needs. 

Before you leave, please take a stroll around the restaurant, you’ll see we’ve done a lot to preserve some of Del Mar’s history while expanding to meet your demands for the future . We hope you enjoy your stay.
