If you want good Tex Mex in a nice atmosphere with reasonable prices and good food, then El Fenix is the place!
El Fenix is reliably good every time. The staff know what they are doing and get on with it. The managers we have seen are friendly and welcoming. The chips and salsa are the best around. Lots of new guys come and go.. but El Fenix stays. And, quality is the reason.

Enjoyed our visit to El Fenix, service was friendly and prompt. Food was as ordered, enjoyed the atmosphere with wife.

Long a Dallas landmark, we never fail to visit on our return visits. It remains consistently good, the service is fast and the staff is friendly. Be prepared for a noisy environment however.
