After 500+ visits (no exaggeration 25 years), still my favorite Mexican food. Wide variety of menu items although I ALWAYS get chicken fajitas with burned-black onions (my special request). Food same quality as 25 years ago and Raphael is still on site daily. I guarantee youll like this place but it is kid-friendly. At least 2 presidents have eaten here and they'll treat you like a king.
My family and I have been dining at Rafas for over 15 years. The food is consistent, service is outstanding and the margaritas (order the Chet margarita) are the best. Oscar is our primary waiter. Whenever I’m with my clients, we definitely stop here to refuel before looking at more houses.
Incredibly amazing! This was our first time here and it was beyond phenomenal! The green salsa, red salsa, and Smokey salsa - are must tried! This place serves TRULY authentic food and it felt great to find a place that serves excellent home cooking Mexican style food. 5 stars!
Another Tex-Mex institution, and it deserves every bit of praise for sustaining excellence as long as it has! Meal after meal, they deliver delicious food with attentive service at a reasonable price. A definite destination when we want to show visitors the best of Dallas Tex-Mex! Try the seafood enchiladas!
EXCELLENT veggie enchilada experience!! Salsa is great!! Our waitress Maria was right on point on her suggestions, service and very personable! Thank you Maria for making this an excellent 1st time experience!! Highly RECOMMEND!! Wiil be back soon...💃🍷💃
We love eating here! Authentic Mexican food. You get what you pay for. The service is always amazing, waitstaff is friendly and professional. Drinks are great as well. The place is decorated with beautiful Mexican art. This is a place to truly appreciate with whomever is accompanying you to eat.
Perfect local neighborhood Mexican restaurant! I grew up coming here probably close to once a week. Wide range of menu choices, very fast & friendly service, very reasonably priced...Highly recommend this place if you are anywhere nearby. Good for groups (although it can get crowded, so make a reservation!) and kid-friendly as well.
Great place for family and their portions are huge !!! Great customer Service as well and most of all they made me fresh black coffee !!! Love the food here !!! 5 stars
