Best Tex Mex in Carrollton

Solid Tex-Mex. Try the roasted chicken relleno--it's delicious. Decor not very polished, but they have a pleasant patio in good weather.

Mena's is a bit more upscale than most of the mom and pop Mexican restaurants in Carrollton. Tables have white tableclothes and candles for a bit more ambiance than a normal Tex-Mex. The mango margaritas are some of the best I've ever tasted. Sweet but with a taste of tequila makes them a great fruity concoction. My favorite dish on... More

Service here is always great. Best food for the price for sure. There is a reason it's a local favorite.

Friends had told me that unless you go early, you might have to wait a while for a table. It seems like the place is always crowded - a testament to the good food and drinks. The bar area is as busy as the restaurant, and the margaritas are great. The chips are crispy, the salsa is tasty, and the... More

There aren't a lot of dining options in Carrollton but I would say Mena's is Carrollton's best restaurant, regardless of the cuisine. We have dined here many, many times over the years as have many of their customers. I have seen the same guests in there on more than one occasion. The chips and salsa are good, not quite as...

I live in the area and was so hopeful when I saw this restaurant opening. There had been several restaurant's in that place that failed. When they first opened the food was great and the prices were fantastic. After time I noticed that their food became average and they were starting to charge for items that other restaurants give for... More

Nice neighborhood Mexican place. Food is good. Prices are reasonable. Wait staff is knowledgeable of the menu. Outdoor tables are on busy Marsh Lane, so a little noisy. All in all this is a great place, but what I liked was that they are very accommodating for large parties or single diners. Usually busy, but they will find you a... More

This family owned and operated restaurant is a must if you like Mexican Food. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. Mena's gets a lot of repeat business which says a lot for the restaurant. We go frequently and often see faces that we recognize from previous visits.

This is a local TexMex place thats far above average. The quality of the food and service is among the best that I have seen. You will love the 2 kinds of hot sauce served with the chips. Everything I have tried was wonderful. I especially like their chicken dishes.
