We went there with friends. Old place but very homey atmosphere. Valet parking required because they have to squeeze so many cars in a small lot. The food was excellent and the service very good. I made a shrimp and beef combo fajitas. The shrimp were gigantic and the beef well marinated. I will definitely return there on my next... More

Great food. Cozy atmosphere, but by that I mean it's tight and crowded. Very limited parking forcing you to valet. I don't like valet parking. Just my thing. Let some guy you don't know drive off with my car. Good friendly quick service.

Our supposed 15 minute wait was 30 minutes in a crammed small space. Got seated at 8:00 and they are already sold out of chili rellenos. The waiter goofed up my husband's margarita... More

The food was good, the prices were good, the service was lacking, and no free refills on soft drinks. I would go back knowing the food is good and hoping for better service.

We love Mia's and eat here every time we are in Dallas which is about 8 times per year. Always crowded but very friendly food is always good. Their Brisket Tacos are our favorite and we get them every time. Queso could be a little more authentic. Margaritas are good and the beer is cold. Valet parking is helpful as... More

Mia's is the best tex-mex in Dallas,hands down no arguments! The beef brisket tacos with the accompanying gravy are so delicious that one portion is not enough.Top guacamole with light crispy tortillas,amazing refried beans and a cracking Margarita make this a go to restaurant.If you are looking for a slick glossy restaurant experience then Mia's may not be for you...

We're originally from Central California, so like our Mexican food and like it spicy. Now living in Minnesota, we don't often find it. So, while visiting Dallas, we wanted Tex-Mex. We found great Tex-Mex at Mia's. Based on other reviews, my wife ordered the brisket enchiladas. They were, in a word, amazing. I ordered the tamales covered in chili. Also,... More
