This Tex-Mex stalwart in Highland Park serves divine dishes in a stylish atmosphere, drawing both down home and beautiful crowds..
This location is easily the best of the chain and looks deceptively small. Chic art deco and contemporary decor surround a copper column that splashes three stories up to the ceiling. Unlike most places, the bar is on the third floor, enticing guests to dig in before they drink. Lots of bright paint and natural lighting boost the mood, even before the excellent food crops up.
Tortilla chips here are crisp, but not greasy. For some, the salsa may be on the hot side of delicious. The caldo xochitl is a perfect starter, spiking chicken broth with cilatro and garbanzo beans. Succulent fajitas hit the spot with just the right amount of seasoning and plenty of lime. Rice is fluffy and beans are creamy but not overly rich. Servings are generous, but not overwhelming. Tender chopped pork and fresh vegetables fills a crunchy, perfect corn taco.
A no brainer. This place is like clockwork. Great food, near perfect service (they don't talk much), good atmosphere (a bit snobbish). It's not traditional spicy mexican food, but it's my #1 date place in Dallas.
youre food is tastless.

The rice especialy needed more
