we went down to Maple to see what was going on at Ojedas. As it was a Friday it was quite busy with birthday parties and after work celebrations. unfortunately the first bowl of chips was not good so we asked for another one which...was better. the "regular" salsa is extremely hot ( Santa Fe hot) even mild is plenty hot. the margarita was good and a small was big enough. the brisket nachos were so generous i took loads homeMore

My husband and I have been dining here for over 40 years. It’s by far one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants around. Each time we try another Mexican restaurant, we are very disappointed and wish we would have order Ojedas. The food at Ojedas...is very consistent, good every time. If you dislike the food here, stick with your mashed potatoes and chicken!More

My family and I decided we wanted some authenic Mexican that close by in the area. So we looked at the menu at home online and decided to call the order in. Afterward was told food be ready in ten minutes which I live maybe...no more than 3 minutes. So went got the food and went straight home. The food wasn’t hot nor authentic. The taco was soft supposed to be hard. The enchiladas was straight chili and the hamburger meat look and taste like it was processed. The nachos was horrible. If I knew they served this type of food I wouldn’t waste my money or time. My first and last time eating there.More

Ojeda's delivers an authentic Mexican food experience. Service is impeccable, order is always correct, read back; I have never had missing items. The sauces are not matched at any other restaurant - Ranchero has just the right seasoning, sour cream is delicious. My favorite item...on the menu is #12 chili relleno of your choice-cheese, chicken or beef, sour cream chicken enchilada and a puff beef taco. They even have "gringo" mild salsa to eat with the homemade thin crispy chips! Pralines are available as well and cinnamon ice cream. Extensive variety of menu items including American choices.More

You can’t find better TexMex anywhere! Puffed Tacos, cheese enchiladas, Ojeda’s special double-refried beans, and amazing tart and spicy hot sauce. This longtime family restaurant has served presidents and locals alike!

You know you are in the right spot when you get there early on an evening and most of the clientele are local folks. That is a good sign! Been eating here for the last 45 years since they first opened and the consistency of...the food is supreme! Totally Tex-Mex, not your over-the-top items you might see in New Mexico or California. The salsa is out of this world and the tortillas in the enchiladas are so tender and tasty that they make it all go round! I drive 45 minutes each way every 2 weeks for this food and will continue to do so!More

Service was very good. They kept our chips / salsa supplied while we were waiting. To me the Salsa was pretty spicy...so wait until you have a drink. The chips warm. It is a very busy place (we were there on a Friday night). It...is pretty loud so makes visiting a little harder. I would definitely go back if visiting the area.More

"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
