Where to Find the Best Mexican in Dallas

Coco’s in Bishop Arts menu serves fun flavors with their Lobster Tacos, Sombrero Sampler, and Picadillo Tostadas. And be sure not to miss out on the Millionaire Margarita with mandarin napoleon liqueur. | Bishop Arts


From a small establishment with only 12 tables (or mesas) back in the 90s, to the contemporary coastal front runner it is today, Doce Mesas serves fresh takes on Mexican classics. Snatch a seat on their breezy outdoor patio and enjoy their famous Carolina Chicken Adobo along with one of Dallas’ favorite margaritas, and you’ll never want to leave! | Knox


In Mexican cuisine, the mole sauce is not only critical but also extremely complicated to nail — Jalisco's signature mole sauce is made from more than 50 natural ingredients. Relish in these flavors on their Seared Scallops or Pollo con Mole for a truly mouth-watering Mexican experience. | Oak Lawn


Enjoy an adventurous menu of authentic dishes that celebrate true Mexican flavors. Try one of the top chef's in town, Chef Anastacia Quiñones-Pittman's, award-winning Carnitas de Olla, and Potato and Cheese Flautas. We recommend making a reservation but if not they're so worth the wait! | Lovers


Herbs, homemade adobos, and hand-ground tortillas oh my….. At Meso Maya they are dedicated to paying homage to their culture with each and every plate, down to every last detail. In fact, the chocolate used in their mole sauce is made from specialty cocoa beans they grind in house, and the garlic in the sought after Camaron al Mojo de Ajo is peeled from whole cloves. This hot spot is a foodie's heaven! | Multiple locations


​Fairly new to the Mexican contemporary scene, Miriam's exudes exotic flavors to pair with zingy cocktails. The menu items range from brisket empanadas and lobster enchiladas to 16 unique margaritas — one visit here simply won't be enough, you'll definitely need to come back for more! | Downtown


Traditions are easy to pass down but culture is hard to replicate. In the nooks of Bishop Arts, the Xaman family invites locals to take a glimpse into their childhood by serving the same plates and brews they grew up eating every morning. Their chilaquiles are to die for and the coffee, which can be traced back to independent Mexican farmers, is so rich you'll have a hard time refusing a second cup. | Bishop Arts
