El Fenix Mexican Restaurant was founded in 1918, is the Original Tex-Mex Restaurant in Dallas, TX. We were voted Best Margarita by D Magazine & Dallas Observer.
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
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.
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.
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?
The shredded roast beef chimichanga is the BEST EVER!! It's my absolute favorite dish here! And ask for Benjamin! He's an awesome waiter!
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.
Ask for Diego he's the best! chipotle chicken enchiladas and sour cream chicken enchiladas are on point, order them!
Wednesdays=$5 enchilada special: Rice, beans and cheese enchilada plate. If you bring Alli, you're on your own.
The fajitas are great! Lose weight but still eat great food I can help. www.plexusofhouston.com
Best Mexican restaurant in Dallas! Cheese enchiladas are awesome! Awesome margaritas too!
BEST MEXICAN EVER!!!! Everything's good. I got Maximillion's Delight. No complaints!
Just had the fire roasted queso, awesome. Getting ready for my como plate, enchilados, tamales and chalupas. Bueno!!
Good fast service at lunch on Wednesdays! Get the enchilada special $4.99!
Great space upstairs, large with its own bar, ideal for private parties.
Nachos & queso. All good. Especially the grilled chicken salad but who goes for a salad? Tamales ok too.
Great food! Had the tampico platter, good price and tasted delicious
Everything is excellent. Can't go wrong no matter what you order
You can't beat the original El Fenix for quality Tex Mex and ambiance...especially if you have out-of-town friends to impress.
They have the best chips ever. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
Ample parking and can seat very large groups
Love their chips, thin & crispy but not hard or stale!!
The atmosphere reminds me of San Antonio. Food is pretty decent.
When checking out say hi to Pandora. She is full of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent!
My 1st time here, but the chips & salsa are XLNT! Haven't gotten to the entree yet! Lol
The shredded beaf chimichanga with queso is my favorite!!
Excellent Tex-Mex, grab a bite to eat after touring the Perot Museum across the street.
Had the hatch chili tamales... Little spicy for me but I'm a whimp. Lol
