I've loved the chips and salsa at El Fenix since I was a child The menu is pretty basic Tex-Mex, and cheap.

My server was excellent kept the yes glass full / plenty of chips and salsa 💃. Food while not awesome everyday is legit enough to get us to return each month . The old school chicken tacos 🌮 are excellent
