You can't beat the original El Fenix for quality Tex Mex and ambiance...especially if you have out-of-town friends to impress.
The shredded beaf chimichanga with queso is my favorite!!
Go on a Wednesday for the awesome enchiladas deal!
Ask for the spicier hot sauce! It's way better
Best El Fenix in the Dallas area...love the food here!
Wednesdays=$5 enchilada special: Rice, beans and cheese enchilada plate. If you bring Alli, you're on your own.

Had the hatch chili tamales... Little spicy for me but I'm a whimp. Lol
Ask for Diego he's the best! chipotle chicken enchiladas and sour cream chicken enchiladas are on point, order them!
Love the food but service is really going down hill.... the hostess, literially just threw our menus on the table and kept walking, not a word?
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.
I always order off menu: The Jalisco.
Convenient lunch after visiting the Perot Museum.
Great space upstairs, large with its own bar, ideal for private parties.
Best Mexican restaurant in Dallas! Cheese enchiladas are awesome! Awesome margaritas too!
Not what I remembered
Good fast service at lunch on Wednesdays! Get the enchilada special $4.99!
Ask for Leo!
Love their chips, thin & crispy but not hard or stale!!
OMG! These brisket tacos are amazing!
