There is nothing wrong with this Matt's location… it just lacks the flavor of the original. Service is spot on, food is good, bar is a bit weak, but it feels more like just any other suburban food chain rather than a special Tex-Mex restaurant....More

As an ArkLaTex native living in NC I am always disappointed that I can't find any Tex-Mex in the area. So whenever I'm in Dallas I'm on the lookout for my favorite food. I usually prefer locally-owned places to chains so I was pleasantly surprised...More

This comfortable restaurant features great Tex-Mex food. Several of the offerings are very creative recipes. Including chili rejenos seasoned with raisins and pecans. They offer several chicken fried steaks smothered in chile topped with a variety of garnishes such as sour cream and guacamole. There...More

This is my favorite salad. It isn't often that you can find a delicious non-taco salad at a tex-mex spot! I always order this with grilled chicken, and ask for both their ranch and jalapeno vinaigrette salad dressings on the side. I pour a little...More

Basically the only option is the Chile Relleno. All other foods are less than average. I had a coupon, so paid less than menu price. If I had to pay full price, probably would only have given it a "2".
