Heard this place is a do not miss. It was good to be sure. Went with work mates. The place was busy but got seated immediately. Service was courteous and fast. The rest of the gang had the Taco Tuesday Special which was a great...More

El Fenix has been a favorite since childhood. The chips and salsa start the meal off right .The food is always good and the service is quick. If you have room for dessert, the sopapillas are delicious.

Eating consistently great Tex-Mex at the oldest continually operating Mexican Food Restaurant in the country is always a treat. From the great puffed tacos, beef enchiladas and sopapillas to the tasty chips and salsa, El Fenix is the way to go for a real taste...More

I can't even count how many times we've been to El Fenix. I've been going there since I was a kid. I have no idea how they get the food out so fast, but it's always good. It's not the best Tex-Mex I've ever had,...More

Great place to go for a quick and good meal. Prices are very reasonable and service is very good. I like their chips and hot sauce as well. If you want dessert the lemon pie is excellent. They have good salads as well.

I'm not really sure why people love this place. The food is fine but that's about it. I've tried the burrito, but it was FULL of beans. Almost like they forgot the meat. The enchiladas are good, but not special. It's pretty cheap, so its...More

Totally meets expectations if you are looking for very reasonably priced greasy Mexican food. Food has good flavor, lots of it for the price with good chops and salsa.
