Average. Dark. Not enough safe distance space between dinners for Covid restrictions. Service was good. Limited parking.
Thank you for helping give my fiancé a great birthday surprise. Everyone love the food which was excellent and drinks were outstanding thank you for bringing the cake after everyone was ready. Highly recommending this place keep up the great work.
We had s great waiter, the restaurant was practicing social distancing.
We had a group of 9 and everyone enjoyed their dinners and drinks. One of our favorite places and it didn't disappoint!
We were there for a birthday get together.
Atmosphere was amazing!
Food was excellent!
Elvis night is a treat!
Lots of fun
Good food reasonable prices
A great place for mariachi bands. If it weren’t for them, I would not go. 3 of our 8 had finished their meals before the other 5 came out. Worst queso in Dallas. Margarita’s are not very memorable. The entrees were great though. I love the space. Lots of memories that represent oak cliff.
Excellent food and great service!
Food was delicious however our server took very long to bring out our tortillas with the fajitas as well as refilling our chips . She was very sweet and nice thou. I think she needed help. Also the Mariachi sings when requested so the entertainment is sporadic and not consistent. We requested one song and they were very entertaining and sounded great.
I would only recommend for drinks and the mariachi that comes . It was my 40th birthday and unfortunately some of the food was not good and we still got charged for it . We kept having to get the waiter . Also there was spilled glass underneath the table that no one came to clean had to ask twice.
Great festive atmosphere with Mexican decor and Mariachis. Great food and attentive service. What more could you ask for ?
Great food,outstanding customer service,and very clean.
service was great my order was wrong twice but fixed eventually other than that everything was great
We tried because a friend told us about the place . We went as our date night & loved the food & environment so then decided to take my mother for her birthday dinner
We had our family’s New Year’s Eve dinner here and everything was grade A! The food, the ambience and the no wait since we made our reservation through Open Table - I would recommend both to anyone and everyone! Happy 2019!!
Music was great
Make sure to make reservations
Food is good at reasonable prices
Fastest bus service I have ever seen
They can flip a table in under a minute
Manager was active and supervising the seating and service
Hard to find a front of house manager like that
We will be back
Staff was so welcoming and food was delicious. Will definitely go back
Awesome place as always!!!
Service was fast waitress was really nice and the food was great
Awesome as always!!!
Our new favorite Mexican restaurant, on our second visit, we were hooked!
Great service and food
Food was great. A bit too loud. My guest and I were having to practically scream at each other the whole time.
After we paid for our meal the waitress was basically rushing us up from the table. The service staff should definitely work on hospitality.
I love, Love this place! The mariachi, the food and the service is amazing. I try something new every time and I’ve never been disappointed😘😘😘😘
Amazing food and amazing service!!! Will definitely return!
Food was good. Atmosphere is always great. It was a slow night, so that made for a better experience. We have been there when the wait is way over an hour. Having a reservation through Opentable was definitely a plus. The mariachi was amazing. Same mariachi we used for my daughter’s quinceañera in August. We celebrated my beautiful wife’s birthday. Great time
I have visited this restaurant all of my life. We have been there for family Sunday lunch, birthdays, etc. Good variation in menu to satisfy everyone. They accommodate big parties. Just be prepared that there are often Mariachis playing which certainly bring a great but loud atmosphere!
El ranchito is good if you want the real Mexican restaurant experience with mariachi and fresh made tortillas.
I would give this restaurant 10 stars!!!! We celebrated our parents birthday Saturday (January 21st) we were able to reserve online which is a plus, and when we arrived they made room for 15 people and it wasn’t over crowded like they knew how to handle this big crowd. From the food to the drinks and how kid friendly the place was oh god even the mariachi was the bomb!!!!! Had the kids dancing which is rare! This place is our new get together leaving Ranitas which is up the street, I already told my friends about this place I’ve snapped this place it’s a live party and really fun environment we didn’t want to leave. Got there at 7pm didn’t leave till almost 10:30pm. Best place in dallas it’s a must to stop by. Thanks again for making an already special day even more better
The cheese sauce was a bit disappointing. Every thing was great!!!
The food was delicious and we had excellent service but we ask for sangria and they brought us non-alcoholic sangria and didn't know about alcohol sangria
Our party of 8 had a terrific time. The food was excellent, our server (Rosa) was very nice and the ambience (including the mariachi band) was fun. We were celebrating our son's birthday and the restaurant was very accommodating to let us bring our own cake. Rosa brought it out and lit the candles, etc. The dinner menu had lots of great options. I had the specialty goat tacos and they were terrific. The corn tortillas were especially good too!
This is our favorite Mexican restaurant ever! Ambiance, food and margaritas are the best!
Excellent service and the food was outstanding! Celebrated a 21st birthday and everyone had a blast.
Our group loved this palace... Love the food and the service was great!
Great service. Thank you for making my mom's day truly special.
The food was great! Service was good. It's very family oriented and great to get together and enjoy atmosphere/ambiance.
We were seated right away which was great!
We always come here to celebrate birthday dinners beyond amazing friends family as well as our kid have so much fun here
