“Be a taco diner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Watched World Cup and had some great tacos and nachos. In the trendy part of town, the prices were very reasonable. Went through two bowls of salsa while a pair of Ferraris drove past. Great Margaritas.

“Be Adveturous--- Great Burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

I know it is a well know Mexican food diner, and I have been there several times for that. But last night I was just not feeling the Mexican food so I went the Burger Route. It is kinda an under the radar thing to know to order the burger. I had not until now and it was very very good. Two thin patties prepared on a flat grill, served with cheese if you want it and all the normal sides. The patties had a great flavor all by themselves. But add that wonderful, fresh buttery bun and it was a burger home run. Fries looked good and crispy but I did not want to fill up on them lest I could not eat the whole burger.
Service as always was nice and attentive. Drinks were delish. I am really glad I went out of my comfort zone and tried this yummy burger. I will do it again.

“excellent, healthy mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

I had one of the best salads that I have ever had at a Mexican spot. It was healthy, fresh and well presented.
The portions and overall choices here tend towards the healthy and not the classic.

“Much nicer than the name leads you to believe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

My husband had been here several time for business and wanted to share this treasurer with me when visiting Dallas for the first time. The sangria was refreshing and the food was fresh. The decor was upscale for a diner. we would definitely go back.

“Great street tacos in a sophisticated setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

Taco Diner (not Diner Taco as listed in TripAdvisor), has been a favorite of ours since it opened about 10 years ago. Manuel the manager treats you right and the food is very good. Watch out for the margaritas - they are strong!
