The staff, the food, and an even better atmosphere! This place is my go-to Tex-Mex restaurant. I tried the other menu items years ago but I love my "jessica" plate dearly. Spicy salsa, cheesy enchiladas, refried beans to die for, even the iced tea is great! You won't go wrong here, enjoy.

Nothing special going on here. Friendly place, good value, just not memorable as far as the food goes. Not much more I can say.

The food is so good and very authentic. the folks there are very nice and make you feel right at home. This restaurant has been around over 40 yrs. and I have always been there for when they were pushed out of locations and had to start over at new locations. Just love this place

All around OK Tex-Mex...for Dallas. I was however - AWESTRUCK - by the complimentary bowl of beans they give you as you're seated. Some of the best beans I have ever eaten. I asked what the secret was...and the guy said: "hey, they're just beans and water"...must be magic water.

The service is pretty good. It is fast and the employees are friendly. The food is pretty tasty, but the soup is not my favorite for some reason.

My co-workers and I went to Herrera's for lunch. There is always seating, and the waiters are ready to take your order. The food comes out quick as well. I ordered the chicken fluatas (Nina's plater). The fluatas are very large. This dish comes with beans, guac, sour cream, cheese and a bean soup. I really liked the soup. I... More

This family run institution never goes stale. Enchiladas are cheesy, saucy and piled high. Beer is ice cold. The crowd is diverse, and the staff is a picture of smiling efficiency. It's cheap to boot. I never leave Dallas without a visit.

I would look at the menu while eating my bean soup, crunching on some chips dotted with a little butter and dipped in perfect hot sauce and say 2B or not 2B. That is the question. :) If I was really hungry it would be Jimmy's Special. Oh and that National Geographic magazine cover they had on their menu. The... More
