El Fenix provides quality food at a reasonable price. Guests at the hotel are always offered a coupon for a complimentary cup of delicious queso with their meal. The food is tasty, filling, and ther service is always first rate. El Fenix serves real beer (not 4.2) and they have a daily Happy Hour-worth checking it out for good COLD... More

The food was just okay. I was not a fan of the salsa but then again I am a Mexican food snob. The staff was friendly and helpful.

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.

We have an El Fenix close to our house. I did not feel this location was as good as the one by my residence. The salsa was great and the service was good. The chicken enchiladas were dry but the sour cream sauce was good! My wife ordered the tortilla soup....it was very very bland! The liquid part of the... More

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.
