Quick service. Average food

Our server was prompt, though seemed rushed. He wrote down everyone's order... Until the last one. He missed a person at the table and, when... read more

I had fajita's which were very good and more than I could possibly eat. Others at the table had a variety of plates and all remarked they were satisfied.

We had a business lunch here and were surprised how good the food was. The steak quesadilla was outstanding. All other selections were fresh and delicious without being too heavily seasoned. No one had any complaints. The restaurant was very busy but service was attentive and always there. Prices are reasonable making this a great place to take good sized... More

I called in an order to pick up. They were very nice and got my order right (I'm a little picky). The food was very good and you could tell it was fresh and had not been sitting all night. I really enjoyed the chips and salsa!!

I love El Fenix, this location has had the same wait staff forever - which is good somedays and not so much on others. I love the chips and hot sauce along with the numerous plates they offer.

This isn't my favorite El Fenix (downtown Dallas is), but this one has to be #2 on my list. The service here is always good, and they seem to genuinely enjoy seeing us every time we visit.
