After reading the great reviews here, we decided to eat at the Hacienda Real on a Tuesday night during our family vacation in Frisco. We could not believe how busy the place was! There was still a line at the door after we had finished our meal and were leaving at 8:30! We all enjoyed the entrees that we chose, and we even tried some desserts. We were not disappointed at all! One thing that stuck out to me: the staff came out to sing a Spanish birthday song to a guest and they all sounded like they enjoyed singing it...they even harmonized! So often at restaurants now, the wait-staff sound like they are being forced to sing, but not here. I loved the atmosphere... all it needs is a mariachi band to make it my favorite Mexican restaurant!

Just finished a mid-day meal at Hacienda Real. We have eaten here before for lunch & dinner and we still ask ourselves "why don't we come here more often". Wherever you're from you will not be disappointed here. The waitstaff, the atmosphere, the food and a not so typical location so appreciated with ample parking and no in town hassle.

The place was a little hard to find, its kind of tucked into the corner of a shopping center between Safeway and Walmart. However it is worth the find. As a native Texan, eating here was a treat. The margaritas were very good. They also have a wide selection of tequilas, however they are a bit pricey. The servers we observed were all Hispanic, what a concept, Hispanic employees at a Mexican restaurant. This was clearly authentic and not a Chi-Chi's or other chain. We shared the shrimp fajitas and they were very good. Service was very attentive, our margarita glasses never went empty. I usually like to try different places when I travel to a city I have been to before, however this will be an exception. We will definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant.

The staff was friendly, fast and welcoming the food was excellent with large servings and the usual chips and salsa!! I enjoyed the iced tea, and quick refills. The marinated fajitas steak with roasted poblano peppers were so tasty, as was the enchiladas! Went back two nights. Good stuff!

Recommended to this hotel by another visitor. Great food, Friendly Service, and reasonable pricing relative to others in area. I'll return when next in the vicinity!
