Our "Go-To" for corporate or family guests, we proudly claim Fran Lively's Via Real as our Las Colinas neighbor. The freshly-made salsa ranks #1 in my book; I highly recommend spinach enchiladas. Margaritas and menu sure to please, staff handles huge political/charitable/wedding parties or intimate Table for 2 with equal ease. So sure of its quality and no-surprises delivery, we... More

While on a business trip to Dallas, a local colleague recommended Via Real, claiming it is his wife's favorite restaurant in Dallas and one of his favorites. Now I know why. It started with a warm and pleasant greeting over the phone by Sam, who helped us arrange for a large group for dinner. She was exceptionally warm and friendly,... More

They were so kind to make the chimichanga for me, even though it was only on the lunch menu, and it was dinner time. It had a fajita taste, but was honestly the best chimichanga I've ever had. The restaurant has a nice ambience, with a good variety of items on the menu, as well as various price ranges. Meals... More

We were staying in Las Colinas and Via Real was suggested by the hotel staff. Additionally we reviewed Trip Advisor and were even more intrigued with the menu. The restaurant located in an upscale mall in Las Colinas has valet parking. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. The noise level was a bit loud however I have to mention that... More

I've had tex mex.....appetizers.....seafood....drinks...and not one thing I'd change. Very happy with every meal. I know it may sound funny, but I cannot get enough of their poppers. I know, it doesn't sound gourmet, but the are great.

Took a group of 12 out-of-towners here for business. We set up in the private room off the main dining room with a terrific limited choice menu. The food was extraordinary, and the service was attentive but not intrusive. Our dinner was a success and our guests were suitably impressed.

My son and I visited this restaurant when I visited him recently. It was easy to find - and had reservations available. It was more upscale than I was expecting given location in a strip mall - but we were very pleased. We were seated promptly and served chips and salsa that were excellent. There is a very broad menu... More
