Texas Tradition Since 1918

We've been dining at the Camp Bowie Blvd. location for years. Mostly your typical Tex-Mex fare, but they have added more traditional Mexican dishes to the extensive menu. While more items usually means less quality in the restaurant business, El Fenix is an exception. I tend to order beef or cheese... read more

We visited El Fenix Mexican Restaurant in Fort Worth on Camp Bowie Blvd this weekend. I had the sour cream chicken enchiladas they had a really good taste. Great house margaritas, good time for both of us. The service is always top notch.

I guess I'm boring, but I always get the same thing, and it is always good.....the Saltillo Plate! Talk about fast service.....generally there within 5 minutes, hot and ready. To keep me occupied before that, the chips and salsa arrive immediately. If it's a TCU football game weekend, wear purple on Friday and you get a free cup of queso!... More

My family loved this restaurant in the 1960's. I finally went back and it was great. Excellent food and reasonable prices. A great family place!
