“No change after so many years.....”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

My wife, being from another country had never tried ON THE BORDER. Myself, many many years ago I tried the Garland Texas location once....and never returned. Being a native Texas I am not so much into whatever they call Mexican food. We were seated quickly and the server introduced herself and all was well. We ordered and that is where things got silly. My wife ordered Fajitas and when served no flour tortillas were brought. After maybe 5 minutes I asked someone other than our server what the deal was and was promised they would be right out. Neither of us were eating....waiting on the mainstay for her dinner. Nothing happened so finally I motioned for our server and told her the problem...she said..."oh they didn't bring you any ?" Why would I be asking dummy ? By now the food was getting less than warm and we started to eat......Her Fajitas were dry...flavorless, and overall bad. Mine....not at all up to any standard. We asked for a to go box and brought the food home and gave it to our chickens....they were happy. Back to El Fenix forever.

“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Best "house margaritas" for $3. Along with the $3-5 appetizers, it was easy to have a great time with friends!

Close enough to walk from the hotel. Good food. Great service, Fun place. The drinks looked amazing and there was too much food on the plates for us to eat. Very nice place,

“Love the food!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Great service even with a large group! Always great food, and love the ice cold goblet of beer! Food came out quick, and the server got our checks correct the first time around!
