Since I was born & raised in Texas I know good Mexican food: this place serves some of the best Mexican food I've ever had!
Their breakfast is really something else.
If you have a chance I would highly recommend you eat here!

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great food. The temperature on the patio was perfect. The roving Marriachis sounded great. Love this place.

“Finally found a real Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

My husband (who is Mexicano) and I have been looking for a truly authentic Mexican restaurant in the DFW area. After years of trialling many restaurants, we finally found Esperanza's. Owned and operated by the same family as the famed Joe T. Garcia's, this one has a full menu and less crowded dining room. It also has a bakery attached which is very good.

The service was friendly and efficient. The prices were competitive and reasonable. The outside patio seating area is shaded and attractive. The food... Sublime! Everything was full of flavor and served hot. I have never had better tasting green enchiladas anywhere (including Mexico). The tortillas are homemade And the margaritas are very good as well! Cannot wait to bring my mother-in-law!

Give this place a chance... You'll be glad you did!

“Mexican for breakfast?? YES!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

A fun old place in the Stockyards area of Ft Worth, this family run establishment grabs you as soon as you walk in the door because you access the restaurant by way or their bakery! Friends took us there and we were surprised to be eating homemade chips and spicy salsa with coffee for breakfast!! The menu is quite varied, I had the chorizo migas which is scrambled egg with chorizo sausage and tortilla strips on top of salsa verde, then topped with cheese, a large helping accompanied with Mexican hash browns( a spicy warm potato salad) and refried beans. And complementary fresh hot flour tortillas to scoop it all up! Gets very busy on Sunday mornings but well worth going to.

“Try the Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

This restaurant is owned an managed by descendents of the famed Joe T. Garcia's Restaurant Family. From growing up in the business, they know how to do tex-mex perfectly. And, they know the value of a good dining experience if you want folks to come back. They have the winning formula. All of the dishes are excellent for dinner, and the Sunday brunch is awesome. Juevos Rancheros is a personal favorite, but you can't go wrong with any of the dishes. You will be ready for a siests after the brunch as the portions are quite ample. Very laid back and fun.
