Arriving in Texas late and wanting to get some good Mexican food we stumbled on this place and I was pleasantly surprised. It was almost noon and we beat the eventual regulars rush. Noticed they had a live band (at night I assume) and the warm tortilla chips hit the appetizer rush. My main course was tacos with refried beans... More

Have been customer for 25 years. Even had them cater huge special event parties in my University Park home. Got take out tonight after several years of not patronizing. Fiasco. Manager is new and really not pleasant, but that is not an excuse for the rest of he issues. Really gone down hill. So sad.

I loved the salsa that is served warm. I have never seen that done before. I also got some great tacos al carbon. I was disappointed when I was served flour tortillas when I asked for corn tortillas, but they were delicious so I forgot about that slight mishap. It was also a great deal because I got a Groupon...

This is authentic, don't come in expecting Tex-Mex. Salsa is served hot and large bowls. Menu selection is your normal fare and not overpriced at all. My mother and I make a regular trip here at least once a month. Refried beans are to die for. Don't miss it if your in the area.

This place is a gem. My son and his wife live in the area and weren't aware of Danal's until we took them. The service was great and the food is an excellent value. We ordered fajita's and enchiladas and everything was so good. Our server didn't speak English but there was someone there to interpret. Overall, great experience and... More

Using the word "ambience" will be highly inappropriate. The place was uninviting, but depended in the rating as assessed by TA. Sometimes hole in the wall places have great food, so didn't want to let this affect my visit. So tried it out. I'll complete the "ambience" part. As we entered, were shown the left side of the seating area,... More

Giving Danal's 1 star is a stretch BUT, it wouldn't let me select anything less..... I was a long time patron of their restaurant until today. I had a $25 gift certificate from restaurants.com and, upon using the GC, I was told they would not accept it b/c I was using it before 4:00..HUH?!! I wasn't aware that GC had... More

Not a so great atmosphere but the food was excellent and authentic in fair quantity. The place was crowded and the service was fairly fast.

I come here frequently, and in my opinion, it's the best Mexican food in Irving, a city that has more than its share of Mexican restaurants. My favorite is the carne asada, always very satisfying and a large plate. The menu is extensive and gravitates toward real Mexican, as opposed to Tex-Mex.
