Very good food, authentic, flavorful and good service as well. The chips were warm with good salsa, not too hot but a lot of flavor. Would definitely eat here if in Dallas area again.

Food was delicious. I got the shrimp tacos. My friend got the beef tacos. She said beef was awesome. Typical for what you would expect on Texas. The waiter was super nice and attentive and my margarita was delicious. Prices were very reasonable too.

Met for organizational meeting. We are planning a adult Ed weekend. Even though it was crowded were able to talk, discuss, and totally plan the event while enjoying a delicious lunch.

Thus restaurant has become a familiar hangout for the Canyon Creek neighborhoods and teachers within the RISD. The service is excellent; waiters and waitresses become friends and there is hardly any turnover among the staff. It is a great family restaurant but also provides a great atmosphere for happy hour or late Saturday night get-togethers.

This is a local restaurant located at Custer Rd and LookOut Drive in Richardson. It features typical but good Tex Mex, great quesadillas, margueritas and white cheese queso. It began as a smaller size and expanded due to the strong neighborhood response. It is located next to Sweet FireFly ice cream store, also quite popular. We are local neighbors and... More

I had the Chicken Fajitas. It was accompanied by my choice of flour or corn tortillas, refried beans, rice, sour cream and guacamole. The chips were thin and crispy not greasy. The salsa was very tasty. We had to change tables after being seated as the overhead fan was much too vigorous and I was freezing. The table where we... More

I love Frankie's. Food is always good. Came before husband could join me. But really? Table by front entry door? Kept moving table because people literally touching table waiting to be seated. Don't need their behinds on my table while food here trying to eat. They MUST rethink location of this table. I'm literally pinned in corner by table. Ridiculous!... More

The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. A great little place stuck in a strip mall in Richardson. Mexican food that tastes fresh and is seasoned to perfection.
