Great Service and Great Mexican Food

Had dinner here on a Sunday evening with 7 other guests. The service was great and quick, the margaritas got great reviews from everyone, and the brisket tacos were very good. Apparently the place has been around forever and has a loyal following and it is easy to see why!

Having recently relocated back home to Texas after 15 years on the east coast and abroad, I took my wife to Mia's last Friday. I believe the last time I ate at this great little Tex-Mex casa on Lemmon was 12 years ago while visiting old friends. After all these years, Mia's is the same as it ever was and... More

I hadn't been here in 25 yesrs but was back in Dallas so I stopped in. The only thing that had changed was they expanded inyo the parking lot. Still outstanding food.

I have eaten here for years and never been disappointed. This is authentic Tex-Mex owned and operated by a long-term family in Dallas. You may have to wait for a table but don't leave...................it will be worth it.

Always super good Tex-Mex! Service as good as the food. Very economical. Cold long necks and good margaritas. Chips and salsa excellent. Dallas is the Mecca of Tex-Mex and Mia's ranks at the top!

The wait is made so much better by the cheap but fantastic margaritas with a decent slug of tequila, perfect to wash down chips with fiery dipping sauce. The beef soft shell tacos were really good, served with refried beans, rice and salad. Everything you expect from a family run Tex-Mex restaurant. Great value and service.

They have complimentary valet, which they should, because the parking lot area is small. They wait is long, especially on Saturdays. The restaurant is pretty small, if you don't want to wait, you may want to consider sitting outside. They food is great and ample for the price. The service was great! Oh and the drinks are good too!

The dining experience starts with the arrival to friendly staff and hostess. The restaurant has a colorful and pleasant atmosphere . The dining was excellent with very flavorful entrees. The location is close to hotel accommodations for the downtown Dallas area.
