This is a very nice place to visit.The frozen Margarita was the best I have had anywhere. The food is not the normal,but very good. It is pricey,but for the food type and quality it is worth it. Be ready for a wait they are very busy!

In town for the National Championship game so grabbed lunch here. Yum. I love Tex Mex so that adds to my delight. Great chips, guacamole, nachos and burritos. My son had the pulled pork burrito and said it was delicious. Great service. Agree with other reviewers that it is a little over-priced considering its a cantina, but good food nonetheless.

We have always loved the fajitas but they have added some new appetizers that were very good. the Shrimp tempura Cocktail and the crab ceviche were both excellent. The food is always consistently good as well as the margaritas. Good happy hour special. We always stop at this place when we are in the area.

Even though is was pretty busy. We were seated in a fair amount of time. Service was great and our food was good. House packed with Dallas Cowboy fans celebrating their win against the Detroit Lions. Great atmosphere for family or friends entertaining.

Great atmosphere, great service & great food. The appetizers & entrees are huge and expensive. My suggestions is to split your order - if you eat it by your self you can not walk.

Hands down I gotta say this location has great service. The food came quick and was fresh. The chips and salsa were warm and fresh. Great atmosphere. The fajitas have always been cooked to perfection as well as the tortillas and shrimp brochettes. I gotta say I love this place. Cons: which is the reason they didn't earn the last... More

Great date night place. The service is always up to par and the food good classic tex-mex. Good space not too crowded and good size parking lot. I done classic fajitas and my lady always like the enchiladas. Good prices too.

The Del Mar is a meal for two.....chicken and beef fajitas and bacon wrapped brochette shrimp. The spicy, melted butter is to die for! This meal never disappoints. Tip; since this restaurant is notoriously busy, just belly up the bar and eat your dinner there. Fast service, TVs, friendly bartenders that keep your drinks filled and make sure you are... More

Where TexMex is taken to an art for the palate. You will not leave hungry nor disappointed. A bit on the pricy side but worth it, as you get what you pay for... in every luscious bite.

I have given them 3 chances and everytime it disspointed. Their food is way too greasy and not a good flavor to it in my opinion. I also thought that their ground beef was way too spicy.
