The service is pretty good. It is fast and the employees are friendly. The food is pretty tasty, but the soup is not my favorite for some reason.

My co-workers and I went to Herrera's for lunch. There is always seating, and the waiters are ready to take your order. The food comes out quick as well. I ordered the chicken fluatas (Nina's plater). The fluatas are very large. This dish comes with beans, guac, sour cream, cheese and a bean soup. I really liked the soup. I... More

This family run institution never goes stale. Enchiladas are cheesy, saucy and piled high. Beer is ice cold. The crowd is diverse, and the staff is a picture of smiling efficiency. It's cheap to boot. I never leave Dallas without a visit.

I would look at the menu while eating my bean soup, crunching on some chips dotted with a little butter and dipped in perfect hot sauce and say 2B or not 2B. That is the question. :) If I was really hungry it would be Jimmy's Special. Oh and that National Geographic magazine cover they had on their menu. The... More

Food was great, waitresses doing a fine job, no long wait, affordable, and no hassles. What else could you ask for?

Ate here a dozen years ago and still dream of the day to return for their bean soup! It was just a little hole in the wall tex mex joint but I long to return!

I have been going to Herrera's for 30+ years. My last meal on earth would have to be Herrera's bean soup, chips and salsa, and a 2B. Heavenly.

Written up in National Geographic for the GOOD food. One of the best Tex-Mex restaurants anywhere. A gold standard for that we compare all similar others to and the others always disappoint. Bean soup is always good and the plain old cheese enchilians are a true standby. It does not get any better than this.

I have been going to Herrera's ever since I got out of college and it was a little pink-concrete-brick shack with no bar. It has moved twice since then and now has a nice, attractive, much larger restaurant with a bar. The tables all have glass tops with photos of the many longtime customers eating at the second location before... More

I love Herrera's! If you want reliable tasty Tex-Mex you can not go wrong at Herrera's! I have been a customer for over 30 years; don't get to visit as often as I'd like as I live in Irving and it's not always convenient but, when in the neighborhood I always stop in for a meal and love to take...
