Decided to try El Norte after a bout a 20 year break in going there. Used to be a lunch spot when I worked in an office, now working from home I usually only get out on the weekends for lunch. I had a house...More

The chicken quesadillas are always tasty. On this visit I had one beef, one chicken and one cheese enchilada and all were very good. The queso with beef is a “must order” appetizer for us and a favorite for our take-out orders. My son liked...More

2 enchiladas with 2 sides are on special each Wednesday for lunch and dinner. Our group had beef, cheese and chicken sour crime enchiladas and they were all a hit. The Honcho Queso is made with white cheese and filled with ground beef. The chips...More

We visit El Norte Mexican Grill when we're in Plano and have a hankering for Tex-Mex. I like their cheese enchiladas and sour cream chicken enchiladas. Their chips and salsa are also very good. On our last visit, we took advantage of their daily specials...More

I have been eating here for 20+ years! The queso is delicious as well as the quesadillas and enchiladas. Really everything is great! The prices are very reasonable too. Service is fast and attentive. Love this restaurant.

Gosh, when I lived in Nashville I dreamed about the salsa at El Norte. All the selections are great as is the service. Many of the folks have been there for years. They make a mean Margarita also.

The food was bad. We will not come me back again! This is not a Mexican restaurant. The place didn't smell good. The price is not for what you get. The server was good.

This is a casual and comfortable neighborhood place. Food is ok if you like your enchiladas rice and beans served warm.... when they should be hot. And the server never refilled our water glasses. Service is below average and food is barely rated as average....More

I have been going here for probably 20 years. The food has become pretty bland and not exciting. The server was great, but my plate had clearly sat under the warmer for quite some time. The beans were hard on top, the chicken was dry...More

After driving by this place for nearly a year and a half, my wife and I finally decided to give it a try. It's not hard to miss; it's the blue building with the patio in the front. Hostess was very friendly and we were...More
