Our waiter was oh so charming! From the time we sat down, I thought he was going to provide us with a pleasurable dining experience. This was important to me as one of our party is always critical and very hard to please. Chips and salsa and drink orders were served immediately.Unfortunately Mr. Charming failed to check on us.

Highly recommended. When you travel the world as we do, you find out quickly it's hard to find Tex-Mex food outside of the US. That's why we seek out this type of food when we're back in the states. And in the states, this is our favorite Tex-Mex Chain restaurant. And we've tried Tex-Mex restaurants all around the US. Ours... More

Made reservation for 7:30pm but ended up eating at bar due to slowness of tables turning. Chips and queso came out and were great, ended up sharing fajitas with lobster tail. All tasted great but it took a bit of time to get our main course, probably due to the place being packed wall to wall!

Love this place! Great atmosphere, love the Cantina and the fire pit outside - nice touch. the Guadalajara fajitas were awesome, highly recommend them! Margarita's are top notch and their fire roasted chipotle salsa is the best in the DFW area. Definitely coming back here!

This location used to be a fairly serviceable option for DFW-area Tex-Mex. But a year or so ago we noticed corners being cut. On my habitual bacon-wrapped shrimp, the shrimp became smaller and of lower quality, the sizzling platter lacking the lemon and full jalapeño pepper. This is but a harbinger of other qualitative downturns. Tacos and enchiladas became ordinary... More

Family brought us here after a stressful day of not one but two flights being cancelled. The margarita shaken at the table helped. The substitution of barely average cheap tilapia tacos for the ordered tuna tacos with mango salsa did not help. So tired and stressed did not realize the mistake until honestly just now when I reviewed their menu... More

Some of the best Mexican food in Dallas! I do not know of anything not good on the menu. WE have tried it all and held many events here and even used the catering service. Cannot go wrong with this restaurant!
