The place for fajitas

This tiny restaurant is said to have the best fajitas in Fort Worth and our family agrees. The guisada is quite good also. The salsa is spicy. Skip the michaladas...the worst I've ever had.....just too tart to be tasty.

Love to explore non-chain Mexican Restaurants and we hit a gold mine with this one! The food was some of the best ever. I had the very best flautas I have ever eaten. Seasoned like no others and just the perfect serving size. The salsa obviously made in-house was just the right amount of spicy for the delicious, fresh chips.... More

I had family come in from out of state. I had to take them to El Asadreo's to eat. This is my favorite place to eat Mexican Food out of any Tex Mex or Mexican restaurant in the DFW area. Many times on Friday and Saturday nights people are lined out the door.

I keep looking for that perfect Tex-Mex joint and El Asadero may be as close as they come. This time I had the Chicken Enchiladas with Mole, served with a side of rice and beans. Wow -- Holy Mole, this was an exceptional dish. You go here for the food. The service was mediocre -- efficient -- not bad --... More

Nice little restaurant. Great food. I've been coming here a long time. Love the margaritas. If Joe T Garcia's is too crowded this is a great second choice.

Our best friends and us love going to the El Asadero. The hot sauce is usually very hot and delicious. Their guacamole is the best anywhere. The fajitas, both chicken and beef, are always so good and our favorite thing to eat there. I always order the French fries to go with it. I know that sounds weird, but try... More

For an inexpensive lunch or dinner and some of the best Mexican food plates you can find, El Asadero is it! Look for the little Orange Bldg. off of Main Street in Fort Worth's Northside area just south of the Historic Stockyards and Billy Bobs. The parking is limited and their alcoholic beverages just average, but the food is Outstanding!

My favorite small Mexican restaurant in Fort Worth hands down. They have the best Pork Chops I've ever eaten. The Milenesa is also outstanding. The portions are very generous and the menu is very reasonably priced. They have some of the best salsa I've ever eaten as well. I usually purchase a quart to go after dinner. Go check it... More
