We come here many times a year. After coming in for most of my adult life, we have developed many friendships with people who work here. The Service we receive when we drive up to the valet to the host stand, our server, the managers and even Javier himself is amazing. Just a wonderful experience every time we are there.... More

The Cabrito fajitas are incredible as is the guacamole. However, the quail on the sampler platter is to die for - the best I've ever had anywhere! All in all our party of 6 was highly satisfied and this review speaks for all 6! Amazing food, although the restaurant is a little dark.

This is not Tex-Mex, but true cuisine of Mexico City. The food is absolutely delicious, and I have tried almost everything on the menu. The place is a big house with lots of rooms, so it is good for company meetings as well as friends or romance. They serve their homemade tortilla chops warm with their own salsas, and you... More

Drinks were great. Very delicious, tart margaritas. The place was packed when we arrived. The service was good. We were not impressed by the food, though. The fajitas do not come out sizzling, the filet was cold and the chips are served with warm salsa that tastes like tomato soup.

We arrived at 5:30 pm and still couldn't get in until after 8pm so we sat at the bar. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. Margaritas were great!

One of two of my favorite locations to frequent for dinner in Dallas. Always great for a large dinner group. Food is fantastic. Margarita options and excellent wine choices plus best gourmet mexican dishes.

I was in Dallas for 5 nights and chose to eat here 2 nights. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. I highly recommend the beef nachos, Filete Cantinflas, Red Snapper Mojo De Ajo and the Cajeta Crêpes for dessert.

Can I give 10 stars?? Yes it's pricey. But having lived in west Texas and south Texas I can vouch that this is Mexican at its best. Everything so fresh. Great cocktails; best margaritas outside of Mexico City. My wife had snapper. I ate a ceviche appetizer ( perfect) and chicken with mole sauce. In my opinion, mole is not... More
