Mariano's is our go-to Tex-Mex place around here. It's certainly more expensive than most, but I would say the food is a lot better as well. Many of their dishes have a smokey flavor that give it a more Texas flavor: the fire-roasted chipotle salsa just might be the best table-salsa in Dallas. Even without the great food, this is a great restaurant for kids or large groups, because it's busy and you don't notice the noise. Our kids love the pinata room in the back most of all. Being the place that invented the frozen margarita machine, they certainly emphasize the drinks, but other than being the original, I'm not sure they're any better than others out there.
