    This regional food is a way of life in Dallas, and this franchise is a Mecca for it. Get a Texas-size margarita with your El Ray's combo: a cheese enchilada, beef taco and pork picoso tamale. Read more

    If you're in the mood for Tex Mex, you gotta try Mi Cocina. Their Nachos Locos are is what they do best - besides their queso. Their Rico Salad is also great with chili vinaigrette. Great for families

    Upscale Tex Mex place in Uptown which automatically means you're gonna pay more for pretty much everything. But the food is good and as others have said the Mambo Taxi drink is highly recommended.

    Gander "The Moderns" section for Pollo en Limon y Chile: grilled veggies, your choice of beef or chicken plus guacamole. Low carbs with your veggies deliciously prepared. Yum!

    Sunset fajitas and brisket tacos are the stars of the menu. Mambo taxi makes everything else taste good too.

    Mambo Taxi (swirled margarita) is very good - seating at the bar is a great place to people watch.

    Get the mombo. This place would be so much Better if they lowered the music some, so you could hear your own partys conversation.

    If you like some spice in your drink get "la llorona" if you like margaritas and sweet drinks get a "dilemma"

    Avoid Saturday nights. Obnoxious people with tacky manners and you must shout above the din.

    Do not order soft drinks here unless you want to pay for each one! They still use canned drinks because they want to make a huge profit and rip people off! You have been warned!!!
