never knew this was here. the food was great. it's no wonder you have been around for 35 years. Will be back our next rip into DFW airport. Wish we had found this place two trips ago. The Blue Goose was not good, and we...hate to eat at chain restaurants.More

I grew up eating at this restaurant weekly and haven't been back in 26 years. I've lived many places since leaving the DFW area and when I had the opportunity to host a birthday luncheon and the kickoff to a bachelorette party for my best...friend in the DFW area, this was the first place that came to mind. The communications from Steve were phenomenal prior to the event date and the restaurant was ready for us when we arrived. The food was as good as I remembered it and everyone in our large party was happy. Seriously one of the best margaritas I've had in forever. Highly recommend and as a vegetarian, it is amazing to find a restaurant with GOOD veggie options!More

They have their routines down here. Staff works together smoothly. Enjoyed the busy atmosphere on a Tuesday evening. Drinks were good, but not internationally outstanding. Food was good, but not spectacular. We had queso, tortilla soup, tacos, enchiladas. Beans and rice very good.

I was very disappointed in our meal. I had the fish tacos. They were extremely bland. The rice was bland as well. I only ate about two bites of it. My daughter had the chicken enchiladas. I took one bite of hers and immediately wanted...to spit it out. The chicken almost tasted like it was bad meat. I will say my husband got beef fajitas and did not complain about his. His frozen margarita was good as well. This place is always packed and I don't know how. I guess the return guests don't eat fish tacos and chicken enchiladas.More

Ristorante Excellente! From parking right up front, to a patio table, with salsa (just enough kick) and chips almost immediately, a deep menu, Delivering a steaming and sizzling fajita skillet To a very reasonable bill/cheque Was truly excellente!

This was my second visit. This place has great atmosphere and good quality food with ZERO flavor. Starting with the salsa which was basically tomato juice and then the queso which although it had jalapeños in it and chili powder on top had just a...plain cheese taste. We had the Mexican dinner, flautas, and beef fajitas. The best thing I can say is that the beef in the fajitas was a good cut of meat with good meat flavor but zero fajita seasoning. Even the swirl margaritas had very little flavor. Very disappointing and very expensive. It was over $85 for 3 people.More

I ordered for Uber delivery to a hotel. When I discovered that there were missing items on the delivery after Uber quickly left, this restaurant was quick to fix it. They don’t offer delivery service, but they sent one of their employees to deliver the...missing items to my hotel, although it was Uber’s responsibility to double check the order. I truly appreciate the customer service that they offered to me as I’m working out of town.More

We arrived at 6pm and was told about a 20 min wait. It’s so hot outside that everyone crowds around the small inside waiting area or the bar waiting for their table. As soon as someone gets up from the table staff is wiping it...down, placing menus and chips and salsa. Within a couple minutes the new group is seated. Food gets less of a rating. It’s good but could do better on presentation and could use a bit more flavor.More

We sat outside and the service was top-notch. The margaritas are still the best we had two rounds. We ate a variety of dishes and everyone was impressed with the delicious food. We ate enchiladas, fried avocado, puff tacos, and fajitas. We also got great...pictures to savor the memories.More

That's a good question. I've not had wine there, but even though they are your standard Mexican Food place, they have a big wrap around fully stocked bar so I imagine they do. If you want some good wines, hit the winery's... More
