We tried RJ’s based on the recommendation of an acquaintance. The guacamole was quite good, the chips were very average, and the fajitas were relatively mediocre, especially the chicken, which was dry and overcooked.

Great beef rib meal!
My son enjoyed the half chicken in mole sauce
and salad for his girlfriend.
Sunday afternoon meal. Many families there after we arrived.

Free flan for his birthday!

Although crowded and NYE, we were seated immediately because of out OpenTable reservation. The margaritas are tasty and strong. I had the tilapia while my partner had the mixed fajitas. Everything we ordered came out correctly and was delicious.

The staff we interacted with was attentive, friendly and were accommodating.

We’d chosen the restaurants because of the good reviews. But now we can’t understand why it got good reviews. The food wasn’t tasty it all. We’ve got the feeling that the restaurant used the closure of many others. It was simply overpriced for the quality of food they offered. Sorry, but we’ll not recommend or come back.

Caro, picana demasiado todo, no lo avisaron y 3 de los 6 que íbamos apenas comieron nada, lo dijimos y les dio igual, cobraron todo y con propina del 20% incluida sin preguntar. Muy mal, no volver, no ir

Great service, good value, average food (we had the fajita's - beef, chicken and shrimp). Restaurant on game night (during the game) was quiet and easy to access/park. Dining spot for family and/or business if a game is going on at Victory, since parking might be challenging if it was a late night/weekend.

The food was fantastic. The service was terrible. Three people asked if we had menus, yet there was nothing on the table so it was pretty obvious. No ice in the water. We asked for a second basket of chips for our queso and it took three people to get it. Not really sure what was going on but thank God the food made up for it.

I wouldn’t consider this to be the best Mexican food in Dallas, but it was good for what it was. It’s pretty hard to mess up Tex Mex as my friend said. The margaritas (on the rocks) were too sweet, and the service was not as good as expected for a slow time of day. Wasn’t even offered to refill my water. Over all I think it’s a nice place for dining out on the patio when weather permits. I’d give it another chance in the future.

Arrived with a reservation and initially was turned away because the "system was down". We had just paid to UBER there and had cash so manager said he would take us. Only 3 tables were occupied. Ended up being GREAT SERVICE, GREAT FOOD, and VERY NICE experience. Can't wait to come back. And the system came up during the time we were there, so we were able to use credit after all. Best Mexican food I've had in YEARS!

Average. Tough steak in fajitas. Small guacamole with a piece of plastic wrapping. (Comped it which was very nice ). Too sweet margaritas. Service ok. Later ( 8 pm on a school night ) so quite empty quiet. Booths uncomfortable with unstable tables.

The restaurant is very nicely appointed... a step up from most Mexican restaurants. The food was very good, but very hot... as in spice, not temperature. All but two in our party of six are native Texans who grew up eating Mexican food..... we all thought the food was good, but the heat should have been taken down a notch or two.

Our server was a little slow and unsure of himself. He forgot to ask if we wanted beverages besides the water and never asked which salad dressing my friend wanted. But overall it was a good experience

Thank you for accomodating our reservation. Food was great. The room set-up was perfect.
The price was well worth it!
The ladies bathroom had 1 inch of water all over the floor. Not good. Not sanitary.
Wish the waiters came to clear the plates as we began the meeting portion of our event.
The curtains need to be repaired or replaced.
Thank you.

OK so Open Table limits the party size to 20, I did have to call to make the reservation 26. I think close to 28 showed up (my daughter’s VBall team and all the parents). We all had a Blast. The food was delicious!! Everything came out at the same time, nobody complained about anything being too cold or not right. The chips and salsa were always filled. The drinks were well mixed, some of the drinks were strong.

When the time came to pay, the waitstaff divided the meal so we didn’t have to all chip in to a big bill and everyone left super happy. Thank you so much for a great evening!!!

Attentive if haphazard service. Stellar food, delicious (but a bit overpriced) sangria swirl, and a really cool location in the West End. Looking forward to a return visit.
