The food here was unimpressive, the margarita's tasted like box mix and I would never return because of the service. If your not a local they can tell and they really don't have time to provide you the same kind of service as regulars. We came into the restaurant after trying to find a place to park, which is a...

We were in search of some delicious, authentic Mexican food during our recent trip to visit Fort Worth. We were so impressed by the amazing food that we came back later in the week. The place isn't much to look at and the service seems to be on the slow side but the food is the star of the show... More

We wanted a new place for our anniversary. Looked up Mexican restaurants and saw they were voted # 4 in the DFW area for 2013 and decided to try it. Tiny place, might seat 30 but great food and prices. We ordered fajitas for two @ $20.99 and they were excellent. We got there at 11;50on a Sunday morning and... More

This place is on my regular lunch rotation and I thought I should share my experience. Can't speak for anything but the lunch menu but can vouch for it. Good food, very reasonably priced. Best hot sauce in Fort Worth if you can handle it. We called this place "The Burn" for the habanero based sauce that is addicting.get the... More

The next time you’re driving north of downtown on Main and headed towards the stockyards, before you get to that other world famous Mexican place and NW 20th St., be sure to glance left to behold a bright Orange Oasis of Tex-Mex Nirvana called “El Asadero”. I’ve probably been to El Asadero over 20 times in the last year and... More

We happened on this place by accident. So very glad we did. The salsa was excellent. They had a live band that was very talented. The main courses were delicious and affordable. I would definitely recommend this place.

I always have the beef encebollado (with onions) and it is delicious. This is a small, family run place and all the food is prepared with great care. My son had the chalupas and they were terrific, as were the fajita nachos my sister-in-law ordered. Bottled Beer, wine and margaritas are available. Hot sauce is hot but very flavorful and... More

normally the reviews from tripadvisor reviewers are dead on. well in this case don't think so. we went there and ordered the avocado and cheese nachos. Nachos were not bad. the avocado looked like they cut it, put it in the bowl and smashed it a little with a fork. large chunk found and not much seasoning. ordered cheese enchiladas,... More

This is one of the best dive-type Mexican/ Texmex lunch I have found in Fort Worth. The true barometer of quality - in my humble opinion - begin with the chips and salsa. The chips here are very tasty and I hardly wanted to add salt (which I usually like to do). And lots of the curled-up ones that facilitate... More

When your the only non mexician in the place you know your at the right place for good mexician food. Small resturant with the atmosphere of being in Mexico. Service is prompt, food is good. No frozen margarita, just on the rocks - but it is awesome. Ask for tortillas with plate and finish with a chewy praline.
