Authentic TX/MX hole in the wall

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

With all the positive reviews, I reckoned to be in for a very good to excellent meal. Didn't happen. Chips were good but the hotter than usual salsa had an aftertaste I didn't like. For the entree, I ordered the beef fajitas a la parilla. Meat was tender but too salty. Rice and refried beans were lukewarm. Rice was over... More

Another older and young female to busy face-booking and texting, I asked her If I need to wait to be seated, she said yes. then yet another young female (get the idea about family) smiles and says "just sit anywhere you like".

If you want something different than the traditional Tacos and Enchiladas, this is the place to go, they do have these if you wish to order. I had the Asado de Puerco, Pork loin tips cooked in a seasoned spicy sauce, served with rice, beans and salad. My wife had the Pescado Frito, Whole Catfish Fried, served with fried potatoes,...

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
