Review of El Fenix - CLOSED

I'm not really sure why people love this place. The food is fine but that's about it. I've tried the burrito, but it was FULL of beans. Almost like they forgot the meat. The enchiladas are good, but not special. It's pretty cheap, so its worth going. But if you're looking for better food, pretty sure you can find it. This was average.

Totally meets expectations if you are looking for very reasonably priced greasy Mexican food. Food has good flavor, lots of it for the price with good chops and salsa.

My wife had tried this restaurant a few months with co-workers, and she said, "Meh, it was OK but nothing special." I completely agree. It's fine... average to slightly above average. I went for lunch at 1:15 pm on a Thursday, and the service was extremely quick. That was a plus. There are just so many very, very good Mexican restaurants in the area, and this El Fenix by comparison is a middle-of-the-road option.

Love the Heritage of the restaurant. Food was average, which doesn't mean bad, just nothing special. Our server seemed a little distracted even though the restaurant was busy, although I did appreciate Manager checking to see how things was going.
