El Fenix has always had great chips and great salsa. This location does not disappoint. That said, this was not the best Tex Mex ever (other locations are much better). However, our server was nice and attentive and the portions were generous. A little pricey, but you do get a lot of food for the price. The restaurant is very... More

A very good choice if you're in the mood for southwest cuisine. El Fenix doesn't skimp on the chips, salsa, queso or much of anything. Portions are generous and the fillings are delicious. Choose hard corn tortillas or flour tortillas, either way you can't go wrong at El Fenix. Fresh, not frozen.

This place is great the prices are the same if your eating at another location. The staff is friendly and your food comes pretty quick. The margaritas are very good. It will get crowed on the weekends

Restaurant can be slow in sitting you at a table. They can tell you that it is 30 min to hour wait but when you look around you will see a lot of empty tables that have not been cleaned. Food is okay but could be better.

Food wasn't very good, edible but nothing special. This was my second time here, and both times were disappointing. Service was just ok. I would not give it a 3rd chance

Greatest chips ever! They are so good you just want to order nothing but the chips...can't stop eating them! The food is really good too but there is no room for food after eating all the chips.

I sat at the bar at this restaurant and the bartender was as polite and attentive as I could ever remember. She would check on me regularly and the food was outstanding.
