Excellent food and nice (and tolerant!) service

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.

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

A bit off the beaten path from more popular areas, but an very good place to enjoy authentic mexican food. The guacamole is outstanding and the warm, tortillas with butter is sinfully good! Will not disappoint!

I have been eating at this restaurant over 20 years and never had one bad meal there. Food is always good. Service always wonderful. A must for any visitor to the Dallas area that wants to experience good Tex-Mex.
