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.

This is the original Calle Doce and it's no wonder that it's survived for so long. The food is fresh, well presented and reasonably priced. Wait staff is attentive but not pushy. The porch is spacious and can be enclosed for chilly weather. The shrimp appetizer (in a goblet with onions, avocado and tomato) can't miss. The deluxe nachos are outstanding. The place features Mexican seafood and pretty much all of it is top flight. The reason for all the praise is Calle Doce has maintained its culinary credibility over the years while still coming up with interesting dishes that don't bore you. The atmosphere is very comfortable and, one of the biggest pluses...it's quiet enough so you can carry on a conversation. You can't say that about many restaurants in Dallas or Oak Cliff. You will not be disappointed. Try it, you'll like it.

The real thing. Not Tex-Mex, but true basic fare with the taste of the Mexican Gulf Coast. Portions are generous, yet not overwhelming. Great atmosphere, with musicians wandering about the tables offering their fare for tips.
The paella on weekends is almost a tradition with us.

We found the food to be very good and certainly well above the typical Tex-Mex in Dallas. The restaurant was extremely busy on a Friday night so the service was slow. If the weather is nice, I would suggest the terrace in the back of the restaurant. One personal annoyance however is that when I received my charge card statement, I noticed that they modified the amount I put on my charge card by 44 cents (they rounded up to nearest dollar). The change was monetarily insignificant but I found it to be personally annoying. Nonetheless, this restaurant is a must try. We ate both lunch and dinner there and both were outstanding

We arrived a few minutes before noon for lunch and it was already packed. The service was excellent, food was delicious and atmosphere was comfortable. If you are looking for a restaurant that has it all, come here! A little pricey, but try the lunch specials for a wallet friendly choice.
