My family and I always dine at the Mexican Inn when in Fort Worth and have never been disappointed. They offer consistently good Mexican food and unique corn chips that exceed those found at other restaurants. The service was very good on a busy Saturday...More

The hot, fresh chips and salsa are always wonderful, but the brisket tacos were so good. I can't wait to go back. Good, smoky flavor with cheese and fresh avocado slices, these tacos were some of the best I've had.

Stopped for what should have been a quick lunch and they were pretty slow. I loved the original Mexican Inn on Lancaster and later in downtown. First, I like their proto-Fritos thick chips, when they're hot. The are not good cold. These were great with...More

A nice place to stop for a good quality dinner with the family. The service was quick and friendly with all the food fixed like we asked. I have never had a bad experience at any of the Inn's.

I love the taco salad at Mexican Inn, but not all Mexican Inns are the same. When I visited this location, I got the Taco Salad, which comes in a fried flour tortilla, and there was a bit more meat but less chips and tomatoes,...More

Tex-Mex Restaurant featuring traditional Mexican food. Specialties include Brisket Tacos, Grilled Beef, Chicken & Sautéed Shrimp fajitas, Fresh ground "masa" corn tortillas and unquie chips, Lunch Specials, Happy Hour, serving Fort Worth since 1936. Now celebrating 80 years of great Mexican cuisine! Since 1936, Mexican Inn Cafe has been serving delicious Tex-Mex specialties to the people of North Texas. We've long been a Fort Worth tradition, and now we've grown to include locations in several nearby communities. Each day at the Mexican Inn Cafe, we steam fresh corn and grind it into "masa." From that masa, we prepare delicious corn tortillas and our special chips, which can only be found at Mexican Inn. Our tortillas and chips are only two of the many reasons why our restaurants have been legends for 75 years! Visit us, and you too will know why we are a favorite dining destination.
