recent business trip caused me to have both lunch and dinner in this lovely restaurant in Las Colinas. Not a flashy stand alone spot, but once inside the suburban sprawl was invisible. the food was great, but even more so was the service which at both meals was exceptional. I should also mention that at the dinner meeting the margarita's... More

When we arrived we were greeted by Fran the owner. She sat us and then gave a fantastic review of "both sides" of the menu. We had arrived anticipating ordering Mexican but wound up ordering off the "American" side of the menu as well. Highly recommended are the Filet served on the wooden plank, the Escalopas and (yes) the quesadillas.... More

This was our first visit. Diego took care of us and provided excellent service. Tamales, fajitas and beef tenderloin were all perfectly prepared. Very upscale Mexican dining. Only regret was queso dip was rather bland, otherwise food tasted great.

When traveling always look up TripAdvisor for Mom and Pop restaurants instead said of the chain Restaurants. The food at Via was awesome in the service even better. Standard margaritas were a little bit small however, very tasty. I'll definitely about to this restaurant when I'm traveling in the Irving area.

It always consistent. Flavorful food, welcoming staff. They have an outdoor waiting area filled with fans and full bar. Can't find a parking place in front; more parking located in the back with the waiting area.
