“Good Food, Amazing Dessert”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Ate dinner here while staying in Dallas. The dinner and the dessert was scrumptious. Price is above average, but the meal did not disappoint. Very friendly service.

“A Great Lunch Before the Perot Museum!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The original, downtown El Fenix has the best Mexican food in Dallas! The food is always served up hot, fresh, and delicious! It's not the cheapest place in town, but you won't be disappointed with the food and FAST service!

“Classic Tex Mex with Fun "Mercado" Decor”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

This classic tex mex restaurant hits the spot. But remember that real Tex Mex is cheesy, greasy, and spicy. The interior is designed to look like an outdoor mercado (Mexican shopping area), so it's fun to think you're really in Mexico.
