I stopped and ate here yesterday on the way home from the airport. It was a busy Sunday after church crowd and we only had a 15 minute wait. Our waitress was amazing and had more chips, salsa and drinks to us without a wait...More

I'm new to Texas but expected a highly rate place to be better than this. I got enchiladas covered in chili con carne and fajita steak and it was ok. The basic margarita was strong but not particularly tasty. We got guac as an appetizer...More

I've loved the chips and salsa at El Fenix since I was a child The menu is pretty basic Tex-Mex, and cheap.

My server was excellent kept the yes glass full / plenty of chips and salsa 💃. Food while not awesome everyday is legit enough to get us to return each month . The old school chicken tacos 🌮 are excellent

If I don't get to El Fenix at least once a month I get Tex-Mex withdrawals. Wednesdays is a good day to go for the special.

Nothing terrifically outstanding, but you may depend on the food's being good at ANY franchise location. Chips are thin and crisp, but the salsa isn't quite hot enough for me. Economically priced. Great service.

Except for chips & hot sauce + refills, any restaurant will charge you for added items. Did you order tea? I'll bet they charged you for it. My wife likes queso, too, and there's a charge. Sorry, you are barking up the... More
