Review of El Fenix - CLOSED

Heard this place is a do not miss. It was good to be sure. Went with work mates. The place was busy but got seated immediately. Service was courteous and fast. The rest of the gang had the Taco Tuesday Special which was a great bargain. I had the Tenchita Salad. It had marinated grilled chicken with lettuce and tomatoes, tossed in their special taco dressing, topped with tostadas and chili con queso, and served on a large crispy flour tortilla. The Taco dressing was very interesting! All the portions were generous and the water glass never got below half full.

Happy Eats

El Fenix has been a favorite since childhood. The chips and salsa start the meal off right .The food is always good and the service is quick. If you have room for dessert, the sopapillas are delicious.

Eating consistently great Tex-Mex at the oldest continually operating Mexican Food Restaurant in the country is always a treat. From the great puffed tacos, beef enchiladas and sopapillas to the tasty chips and salsa, El Fenix is the way to go for a real taste of authentic Tex-Mex in Dallas.
