About Us

Our Story


In 2006, my wife Amanda and I had the idea to open up a small bistro in Central Phoenix.  We were waiting tables at Mastro's and we knew little to nothing about Latin cuisine.  But we threw caution to the wind and went all in on this small 800 sq ft. space.  The first years were very lean with a much smaller footprint.  Nearly 12 years later, Fuego has evolved into an "In The Know" restaurant here in the Midtown dining scene.  We are so fortunate for all the support of thousands of patrons over the last decade to make the little spot a real local gem.  We are also proud of our killer staff that make the restaurant possible.  We humbly thank you for coming to Fuego.  We are super  aware of the hundreds of choices in the Valley for dining and we appreciate that you have selected us.  Sit back, have a cocktail, enjoy the live music and, of course, the food!!
