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 70s 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!
