"Let's hope this is temporary" said my companion. Both of us have dined here for decades, enjoyed leisurely off-hours lunches and dinners. Sadly, COVID has defeated them a bit. Missing the bustle and aromas, it was dark, rushed and sub par. The typical botanas platter...was lukewarm, the fillings all the same sawdust. No longer handpulled spiced chicken or warm queso (we had to ask for the queso). No familiar (and senior) experienced waitstaff, too few shared by too many. Takeout seemed together, but sadly if tgey're sending that tinned pollo out, it won't be the same. We love Ojeda's and look forward to continuing to be supportive. But not for now.More

Six of us went to dinner. Excellent salsa and queso. Very good chips and tortillas. Had the ribeye quesadillas and the chicken quesadilla. Also, had the beef enchiladas. All food was very good. Good margaritas.

As an out-of-towner, this was only my second experience at Ojeda's, my first being a solo lunch many months back. This visit my wife and I were staying at a near by hotel and this was near by and easy to get to. The restaurant...was nearly empty being a Friday afternoon, but not unusual for such an early hour. We both ordered the beef tacos al carbon and drinks. The chips and salsa was very tasty although we didn't have a lot of time to enjoy them since our order came out quickly. The entrees were somewhat different from what we are accustomed to and lacked some of the sides we are usually served such as guacamole and sour cream, but that's fine, we should have asked how it was served. The beef was closer to fajita than the charred steak we are also use to, again it's not our accustomed place. The meal was fine although not outstanding or memorable. There are many good Mexican places in Dallas (another good one is the little place about a block up the street, but it was a bit too "local" for my wife's comfort...it is highly recommended) and next time we will probably be back, if we need something close, fast and wife approved.More

This isn't a big chain; it's not a pop-up. This is a long-standing local eatery that has solid, gimmick-free Tex-Mex food. Not chi-chi or trendy, just a comfortable atmosphere and food that gets right to the point. Satisfying and solid.

As a former Dallas resident living in Maryland, I always hit up Ojedas when I'm back in town. This past trip, I inadvertently left my wallet there and didn't discover it was missing until the next day at the airport. We called and sure enough...someone had turned it in and I rushed in a taxi from Love Field to retrieve it. Everything was there including most importantly my ID but also all my cards. My mom had given me some cash and it was ALL there. I've always thought it was a great place for no frills TexMex but now I KNOW it is something more--a place where some of the best people work! Thank you!!More

Didn’t have anything worth going back for...cheese enchiladas were mediocre and taco meat was greasy and in appetizing. I will not return,

Colleague picked out this place for the 7 of us to go. I asked the waiter what is their best dish and he said he liked the enchilada fajita. It was very good. Came with rice and beans. Friend had the fajitas and loved them....Like most, we were given chips and salsa to start. Restaurant is huge and can handle parties. Service was very good. Definitely worth a trip. Prices were typical for the area.More

She was in heaven as we ate lunch here the other month. Its a simple place with really good staff that may well have been working here for years, they give that impression yet still care so much. Good margaritas, skinny & Jalap. Chile con...queso good but needed some doctoring up. great chips and salsas. The specials was the way to go for us. Mexican & Night hawk & Carmen. Well done still great after all these years for your TexMex fix.More
