I know that is not why you go to a Mexican restaurant but the "healthy plate" at Mena's is my favorite Mexican dish. Grill chicken, veges and rice. The flavor on the chicken and vegs is so incredibly tasty. Also order extra green sauce when you sit down because you will go through the first bowl in seconds.

Great place to go for fantastic Tex-Mex. The shredded beef tacos are simply amazing. The service is quick and friendly. The only negative may be that the secret is out and it may be a little wait time for you during busy meal hours. Enjoy!

I have to say, we are never disappointed with the food or service when we go here. The guacamole is great and the brisket tacos are always fantastic. Everything is fresh and the wait staff is very attentive.

Visiting the Dallas area, I used Trip Advisor to find a good Mexican restaurant close to where I was staying and Mena's didn't disappoint. Besides the traditional red salsa and chips, they also give you warm salsa verde which was delicious. I loved the mole chicken enchiladas. They made the mole in house and it definately tasted like it. As... More

I ate there today and have eaten there many times before. The food is consistenly delicous. The chips are tasty and crispy the chilled red sauce is good, but the warm green sauce is killer. The entrees are very good, The sour cream chicken enchilada is my barometer for comparing entrees at Tex-Mex reestaurants and Mena's is very moist and... More

This was an amazing experience from the food to the service. I went to the new location in Richarsson and was very impressed. If you're looking for good food in a good environment you have to visit Mena's it is worth it!

I hesitatingly write this because part of me doesn't want Mena's to get TOO popular, otherwise there will be long waits. But facts are facts - great food, decent service and a kick-a*s margarita! My faves are Summer Fajitas and the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp special (can't remember the name, but if you describe it, they'll know what you're talking about).... More

We have been dining at Mena's in Carrollton for over 10 years. Their food is always excellent. We typically order off the Specials Dinner menu or the healthy plate options. What keeps us going back is the consistency of the quality of their food combined with the friendliness of the staff. This is an independently owned restaurant and Pablo the... More

I haven't been to the one in Carrollton, but the new location in Richardson (Eastside at Campbell & 75) is great. It's a very nice upscale decor - not the usual Tex-Mex, and the menu is very extensive with lots of choices. The meals are a certainly good size, and the margaritas are very good. The only drawback is it... More

The restaurant is nice inside. The staff was friendly and provided great suggestions. I ordered the taco salad with chicken. The meat was tender and seasoned well. I usually end up taking extra food home. That wasn't the case on this visit. Menas is my new go to place for texmex.
