There are Mexican restaurants on every corner in Texas. I have tried most of them. I keep coming back to El Fenix. They have been around for years and it still is my favorite. The chips are the best, the food the freshest, the service is always spot on and the prices are reasonable.

If your looking for good Tex-Mex this is a great place to go. Everyone was friendly and the food was good. I got the street tacos and they were yummy!

El Fenix is the standard by which all other Tex-Mex Restaurants have to be measured. That does not mean it is "great", but it is the middle of the road standard. Everything else is either better or worse than El Fenix and most are not better. You always know what you are going to get and you know it will be representative of the cuisine.
