Great Tex Mex standards and some new offerings. The new fajita salad is wonderful! The chicken enchiladas are fabulous, too.

I went with a family member to the El Fenix in Arlington, Tx. We had chicken enchiladas and meat/chicken fajitas. The chips and salsa were good. We were offered a cup of cheese sauce, which was $3.49, and it didn't have much of a "cheese" taste. It seemed a bit bland, in comparison to other Mexican restaurants where I've had... More

When we want a meal that is dependable in quality, flavor and variety of choices we head for El Fenix. The food is prepared/seasoned in a central company kitchen so you never get a "bad" night. We eat there at least twice a month and the whole family from age 18 months to senior citizen gets food they love. The... More

Sunday lunch, after church with the family and a grandmother in tow. This is like the old style El Fenix stores, dining room is large, so there is plenty of seating. Everything was delicious and I always love the praline you can buy as you leave.

This is the 3rd different El Fenix Restaurant that we have eaten at in the DFW area and they have all been consistently good. They have great salsa, good chips, tasty entrees and their Margaritas are not too shabby either. Very good food for a family or group of people on a budget. The service is better than expected.
