Ate here today. Great food, great service easy walk from the lake at white rock.
I had street tacos steak, pretty decent wish they had some sorta salsa I could throw on them to make them awesome but they're still worth getting. I also got a chocolate churro which I really enjoyed a lot. It was in the awesome category. The waiter and host were super friendly. I will definitely be back for more!

Few restaurants execute everything well, food, service, bar, hospitality and management.  I have been a customer, since opening day.  I try to visit weekly here.  John Michael never disappoints me.  The mole here, is like no one else and the Perfecto margarita IS perfect.  Everything here is great, no other restaurant compares, fantastic place.

Started going to this new place just before the pandemic shut down. It immediately became my go to Tex-Mex place. You pay a little more but it's worth it. Good parking. Nice interior. Nice staff. Just a comfortable place with very good food. So glad they're here.

EL VECINO is a bustling Tex Mex restaurant that has the best Tex Mex in Dallas! I had the Fish Tacos which was Tilapia lightly breaded in a flower soft taco shell and was delicious! The waiter was kind of slow to take our order but got the food out quickly after we ordered. He was very attentive after he got started with us. I got my delicious Margarita on the rocks immediately! Granted we were there on a cold wet day perfect for Tex Mex. The parking lot was full!  My wife had the Steak Fajita Nachos and was impressed because she could get a small order that left her satisfied with no waste. We recommend EL VECINO highly!!

Menu in pictures. Great food and great service. Wish they had home made tortillas but everything else was so great I still gave 5 stars

I picked up 2 order from here last night and the guy that was handing out the delivery orders was very rude you can’t talk to Customer’s in a rude way and expect them to talk nice to you. UNPROFESSIONAL. (Zero star) the way he approach was negative.

I had the Big John's Dinner, and yes, comprehensive meal, and I know why John is so big! Excellent items, very fresh even considering I came in the afternoon. Even the rice and beans were good when in so many other places they're an afterthought. Chips were good, and salsas had great flavor. Friendly careful service.

I hate how this used to be hole in the wall Tex Mex joint is now getting so much attention, but it's well deserved! They seriously have some of the best house frozen or the rocks margaritas I've ever had. Their dining and to-go staff are so nice. Their fajita meat is so tender and the veggies are made just right. Always consistent and always tasty!

Went here on a whim, noticed it was really busy the other night. Service was great and the food was really good! Pleasant surprise and so close to home. This will definitely be my New Mexican go to. The food tasted fresh and the restaurant was very clean, neat and spacious for being in a strip mall. Loved it!

Our new favorite Tex-Mex! The owner greeted us at the door and we had a nice conversation when we told him it was our first visit. We had no idea the owners were part of the Martinez Family (El Fenix) and the menu is full of the old family recipes as well as some very unique items. The pumpkin flan is a must try!! Everything we ate was on point and we look forward to returning very soon. They even have a Wednesday enchilada special!!

The staff here is nothing short of amazing. The gentleman that helped us was very attentive, he was so  patient and understanding of all of our kids and their antics never once getting irritated by the noise and semi chaos that comes with bringing four kids to a restaurant to eat. We are visiting from California and your hospitality has definitely left an impression on us. The food was amazing too!  Thank you to the whole staff for an amazing meal! We appreciate you!

It's a cute little place but a little mediocre. The waiter were nice and they were attentive. Red salsa is a little spicy which is great and the green was somewhat sweet. The food was okay
