The El Fenix Restaurants are the original Mexican food and we have been there at least 50 times over the years. The Mesquite El Fenix has wonderful decor and very good service. The chips are puffy and the hot salsa is also. All the offerings are very tasty.

This is a wonderful restaurant located off the beaten path. The place has a very warm and friendly turn. You see the old family photos on the wall and understand this has family tradition all over it. The food is great and the chips and salsa are wonderful. I truly enjoy a meal there and I believe you will as well.

El Fenix (Mesquite) offers a roomy setting, a varied menu, friendly service, and tasty, reasonably-priced food. "Edge-y," it isn't, but if you crave good Tex-Mex, this is a great choice.

My family in TX always goes to this restaurant, and I've never had a bad visit here.

During our recent visit, the place was packed, but service was anyway friendly and consistent and food was good.

If you need a place to get standard Mex-Tex food in Mesquite, this is it!

The El Fenix has been around Dallas for a long time and has some of the best and most reasonably priced Tex Mex food in the area. Their new Fish Taco plate with Sonoran cabbage slaw is to die for as a nice Baja type inclusion to the usual fare.
