    Great enchiladas! But don't bother w/ guacamole (they fill the dish w/ shredded lettuce & put a layer of guac on top to make you think you're getting a decent amount) or queso (velveeta taste).

    Great ambiance. Excellent service. Delicious food. WEDNESDAY would be a good day to go for the enchiladas special. Chips and sauce are simply amazing. Highly recommended

    The service is out of this world!! I have never been so impressed with customer service. Food was very fresh. Will definitely be returning on a regular basis.

    The original home of old-style Tex-Mex, downtown's El Fenix location is famous for its service and classic, affordable menu. [Eater 38 Member]

    Black beans are vegetarian; rice (cooked in chicken stock) & refried beans are not. Great service, happy & friendly staff.

    Food was pretty good. Service wasn't horrible but wasn't the best either. Tortilla chips were amazing and extremely addicting. One of the best restaurant salsas I've had.

    You can't beat the original El Fenix for quality Tex Mex and ambiance...especially if you have out-of-town friends to impress.

    Avoid at all costs. Food was terrible and the service was less than uninspired and more lazy and rude than I have ever seen. The owners don't take this place seriously anymore. Sad. Pass.
