With all of my posts about food and restaurants, I can't believe that I have missed reviewing one of my favorites, Gonzales Restaurant in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas.
Oak Cliff is a very vibrant and historic area of Dallas, and has had a resurgence of restaurants in recent years. But being in Dallas, though Tex Mex has always been a part of the city and Gonzales restaurant has served the community since 1973!
Located at 367 West Jefferson, Gonzales Restaurant features some of the most flavorful Tex Mex in town at very reasonable prices. It is a very casual dining experience where the star is the food. They have wonderful Tex Mex favorites like Fajitas, Taco and Enchiladas. If you are looking for a real treat, their Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas or Mole Chicken Mole Enchiladas are simply outstanding.
Other elements of the meal that make Gonzales Restaurant stand out are their chips and hot sauce. Their hot sauce is not only spicy, but it is served warm and has a great smoky flavor that sets it apart from many others. Additionally, their homemade tortillas are not to be missed! Thick and flavorful they are wonderful and filling... be sure to save room!
Gonzales Restaurant is, to me, Tex Mex comfort food at its best and that includes the price. With tax and tip, you can easily get out for less than $15/person. Outstanding food and great prices are a winning combination that the Gonzales Restaurant have definitely mastered.
