“A long time favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have eaten at the original El Fenix many times when visiting Tx., and have always been impressed with the food quality, as well as the quality of the service. The restaurant in Wax. did not disappoint. We had a large group and were seated and served quickly. We completely enjoyed our visit there

“Cheap and good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Never a disappointment, food is always fresh, plenty of chips and salsa. Good size menu with as much as u could ask for in a restaurant. Always a little busy but never crazy.

“Always Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

This is always a great place to go eat Mexican food. Service makes you feel special. Food is great and portions are large. The chips are soooo good, you have to buy a bag to take home. Join their computer email list for lots of feebies, too.

“Attentive service. Decent food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

The restaurant was big, like a large house on a non-existent hacienda. Interior was pleasant, with white adobe walls and large potted plants.
The waiters and waitresses were very attentive. They were so attentive that at times I felt like they wanted me in an out. The restaurant was very busy, but service was muy rapido. My food arrived within five minutes after I ordered it.
Extensive menu with a myriad combination of tortillas, meat, cheese, beans, seafood, and sauces. I ordered the spinach enchiladas with cheese and black beans. Food was good, and not unlike any of the other thousands of Mexican restaurants in the U.S.

If you like Mexican food, you really can't go wrong by going to El Fenix.

“Great food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

It made me very happy when this location opened, it meant no more having to travel to Dallas but I miss seeing Mr.Martinez since we go here more often. The food and service are always great and they offer a good inexpensive lunch menu as well!! Go early because they tend to get crowded on weekends.
