The third generation is now enjoying El Fenix as much we do. All of the enchilada dinners are top sellers and they are among our family's favorites. Street tacos are another family favorite. BTW, their margaritas are excellent.

This restaurant offers standard Tex-mex fare cooked to a high standard at reasonable prices. The steak fajita salad was well-presented, with excellent tortilla chips and salsa on the side. Wednesdays are even more reasonable—with 1/2 price specials.

El Fenix is a fixture here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Food is consistent & service is good. I like to think that this is the “ norm” for standard Tex-Mex fare. It’s not top end but the price is reflective.
