Description: Since 1981 La Calle Doces has been serving the Dallas area delicious seafood and Tex-Mex made with the freshest ingredients. Signature dishes such as Pescado a la Parilla, Ceviche and Camaron a la Veracruzana have made such an impact that on August 6th, 1999 a second location was opened in Lakewood. Guess can enjoy the rich culture of Coastal Mexico through the fresh and flavorful cuisine. Just 10 minutes from Downtown Dallas, La Calle Doce offers daily specials, friendly smiles, and a cozy atmosphere and traditional menu.

“Mexican Gulf Coast Food in Dallas”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

No bad dish, it is a particular slant that reminds one of the food from Veracruz. On weekends, the Paella is good, a large serving with a strong saffron touch. Flan is excellent. Not really fond of the Ceviche, seems bitter.

“Awesome authentic Mexican seafood, but neighborhood at night?”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

I believe it was D magazine that listed this restaurant as a top favorite for their authentic, delicious Mexican food. I absolutely agree. It is great! However, I have only eaten here in the daytime, and I do recommend it. But, to be honest, I don't feel comfortabe about my security in this neighborhood at night. I must admit to a big error that I am very sorry for. I didn't realize there were two La Calle Doce locations. I wrote a review for the other location, thinking I was writing one for the 12th street location. The other location (Not 12th street) looks much safer for evening dining, just based on their location. Definitely come here in the day time. Try the other Dallas location at night.

“Better than Tex-Mex!”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

This is Mexico City style food with an Texas flair. My favorite item is the Nachos Especiales made with shredded beef and chicken (not ground beef). Eat the Salsa Verde with a spoon and take more home! The best service and top-shelf margaritas around. Practice speaking Spanish and fit in with the dining natives. This is our favorite in The Bishops Arts district.
