“If You Are Hungry For TEX-MEX This Is THE Place To Go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

I love El Norte! The food is authentic TexMex and satisfies my cravings. I could drink the salsa...just the right amount of spicy and chunky with a little smoky flavor too. Perfect with the super thin & crispy chips and the entrees and sides. Both the cheese and beef enchiladas are absolutely delicious. They accent the refried beans with red onions and the Spanish rice with thinly grated cheddar cheese. The enchilada plates are served with a lightly dressed iceberg salad...a nice refreshing addition. Thumbs up! Esquire and D Magazine are correct in their reviews. Yum!

“I ❤ El Norte”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I go to visit my friends in the Dallas area! They have delicious margaritas. The cheese dip is great, and the enchiladas and the large tacos are my favorites. Also- the wait staff is always friendly.

“One of the best Mexican food restaurant in Plano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

The food is always freshly prepared, and full of favor. I love their shredded beef enchiladas. My family all have a favorite: tacos, fajitas, burritos ...endless choices.

El Norte's is a great neighborhood restaurnat. The food and service are both very good. The management is very helpful with requests. Our grandchildren like the free snowcones after dinner.

“Authentic Tex Mex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have dinned here regularly for nearly 20 years. This little gem provides consistent quality Tex Mex at family prices. A neighborhood go-to. Off the freeways, so you can always get a table.
