Fun Mexican Food. Not a Run of the Mill meal

This restaurant has been in this location for as long as I remember. I eat here about four times a year. Most of the time, I visit during lunch with others from work. Although we do not go here often, it is a place that everyone wants to go. The salsa here iis my favorite of all the places we... read more

Absolutely worth a visit. Had lunch here and was impressed. Fresh, warm, homemade tortillas on the table along with the chips and salsa just to munch on while you wait, very delicious. I ordered a chimichanga with chicken and it was also great. I would eat here quite a lot if I was a local.

Even though it sits in an area that many would not go to the original Mercado Juarez is worth the drive. We had lunch on Saturday afternoon and the large building was mostly empty. This did not last long as many people started showing up and for good reason. We were greeted with warm salsa and chips both outstanding. The... More

I've been going to this restaurant for decades. It's a go-to for lunch and a fantastic place to meet friends for monthly catch-up dinners at night. The salsa is legendary--I could eat it like soup--and the food is smoky, flavorful, and in every way delicious. The staff never fails to be wonderful--this place is sandwiched between a (high-class) "men's club"... More

We haven't visited Mercado Juarez in several years, due our move to a different location in the city. After discovering a Groupon, my wife and I decided to re-visit the restaurant. We were NOT disappointed. Everything from the crispy chips & delicious salsa, fajitas, side servings...and Awesome Cozumel Shrimp, and don't forget the Tasty and buzz creating Margaritas, along with... More

Had Shrimp Fajitas, they were real good, BUT the salsa was amazing, never had it warm before, didnt think I would like it. I was wrong. Its really good that way. They even sell it by the jar as you leave if you want to take some home. Which of course I did :)

Numerous of us visited after our work day. Since there was a group of 8 there were a variety of items. The fajitas and enchiladas looked great, the nachos too.

Got reacquainted with a lifelong friend and her family this past weekend at Mercado Juarez Restaurant in Dallas. This was our favorite Friday lunch Mexican restaurant when I lived there over 20 years ago...and the hits keep coming! The best salsa I've ever had...star of the table! Served warm to the palate and homemade, never duplicated at any other Mexican... More
