    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.

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

    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).

    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.

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