We ate here and this was a nice surprise. To look at this place it is very elegant but very authentic food. Don't pass up the desert for sure. The margaritas are very good and strong.

I really like this restaurant. After a friend and I visited the World Aquarium last year, we happened upon this restaurant and had a nice lunch. This year some friends took the JFK trolley tour and were looking for a restaurant,after the tour. I remembered this restaurant, so we had an easy walk to the location. The lunch prices were...

Our server was really attentive (I am sorry I did not remember his name). The food was really good. I had the RJ quesadilla, great combination of ingredients. Really fancy atmosphere (even though the decor was not too mexican i guess... but still!!!!!!!!!!!!!). The dessert was great too :) I had the chocolate cake - sweet enough but not too... More

I went to lunch at RJ - the service was excellent, the food was good and the location couldn't be beat. Menu seemed a bit curtailed; however, the guacamole and fajita tacos were delicious. Server was friendly and prompt.

Fajitas pretty ordinary, margaritas also ordinary - nice enough but not something that'd be a target destination. Prices not too high, friendly service.

Most of what we ordered came from that section of the menu and was excellent. The food that I ordered from the rest of the menu was good as well. The service was a little "goofy" as the entrees came out before the appetizers and she forgot silverware, water etc. Nothing painful, just slightly annoying. To be fair, we had... More

I think this is maybe the 3rd online review I have ever taken the time to do, that is a testament as to how great the staff and food were at this place in down town Dallas. I am a flight attendant so I travel and eat out about 3 weeks a month. From the moment my wife and I... More

This is a very diverse menu for a mexican restaurant. They also have steaks and seafood that are fairly good. The chips are either old or just broken pieces but everything else here was really good. Our waiter was spot on and the food was served quickly and correctly. The food all had very good taste. The crab guacamole was... More

We dropped by to get something to drink but the menu was so tempting that we ended uo orgering food. The interior is very nice but the main deal is the staff. Very polite and up for the job. It is a great little place and if you in Dallas and want to try Mexican food at a very reasonable... More

We popped into this restaurant for some drinks as it was raining, the service was excellent and free nachos was a bonus. Actually wish we ate here rather than the steakhouse across the road. We would return
