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.
Black beans are vegetarian; rice (cooked in chicken stock) & refried beans are not. Great service, happy & friendly staff.
Great food! Had the tampico platter, good price and tasted delicious
The original. Still so good.
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).
Ensalda de Camarones are yummitastic
Everything is excellent. Can't go wrong no matter what you order
The best chips
I agree...voted Dallas best margarita!
$3.49 margaritas! They are amazing! Not too sweet.
The fajitas are great! Lose weight but still eat great food I can help. www.plexusofhouston.com
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
Queso is amazing!!!
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.
Get the enchiladas they r delish!
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!

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]
Order the Chili Con Caso, yummy
Enchiladas with Beef. Very good
Just had the fire roasted queso, awesome. Getting ready for my como plate, enchilados, tamales and chalupas. Bueno!!
Go on a Wednesday for the awesome enchiladas deal!
put it on your "to do" list to find me here when I was three.
Ask for the spicier hot sauce! It's way better
You can't beat the original El Fenix for quality Tex Mex and ambiance...especially if you have out-of-town friends to impress.
Best El Fenix in the Dallas area...love the food here!
Nachos & queso. All good. Especially the grilled chicken salad but who goes for a salad? Tamales ok too.
