We ate at El Fenix during a quick trip to Dallas for a wedding. We love Tex-Mex food and were not disappointed. This was a first time visit for us and did know what to expect. The restaurant is large and a bit noisy (at least during our Saturday lunch), so do not expect an intimate, white-table-cloth experience. However, our server was attentive but not overly so, and food was served hot and fast. Chips and salsa were excellent, entrees were tasty and our tres leches cake was delicious. There is plenty to choose from, too, from traditional Tex-Mex fare to vegetarian offerings.

We eat here a lot, and love it, but this time we got caught on a bad day. Couple the poor service, the wait times for service and for our food being delivered, along with a drunk passed out at the front door, and it was not pleasant. Missed Baltazar.

We get back to Dallas every few years and this is a must return visit. Tortilla chips alone make it worthwhile. Chicken enchiladas are great. Service staff was outstanding.

Why on earth they serve a cup of their tortilla soup without chicken? I had to order chicken on the side. The waiter was slow forgetful .
Tortilla soup suppose to include avocado, chicken, cheese. What else? Do I have to write it? Not water.
