Where to Enjoy Sizzling Fajitas for Dinner

Fajitas are a Tex-Mex dish featuring marinated grilled meat, onions, and bell peppers wrapped in a flour tortilla. If you would like to enjoy this sizzling meal, visit one of these restaurants near our downtown Dallas apartments that are known for serving some of the best fajitas in town:

Mia’s Tex-Mex 

A Lemmon Avenue institution, Mia’s is Dallas’ original Tex-Mex favorite. Every visit is a journey, and no two are exactly the same. The attentive staff treats guests like long lost friends and invite everyone to stay awhile. In the kitchen, the chefs prepare time-honored recipes from the finest, freshest ingredients. Their cowboy platter features one of the city’s largest orders of fajitas. Along with the chicken and beef, it also includes bell peppers, guacamole, pico de gallo, and rice & beans.  


When Mariano Martinez imagined a unique Mexican restaurant concept, Mariano’s was born. The year was 1971, and soon after, Mariano invented the frozen margarita machine. Today, the first machine is found in the permanent collection of the National Museum of American History. The restaurant’s chefs prepare dishes that pair well with the famous margaritas. They only use locally-sourced, farm-fresh produce and cook over mesquite wood to offer bold, flavorful meals. Try the chicken or steak fajitas with guacamole, cheese, sour cream, and pico de gallo. 

El Ranchito 

At El Ranchito, visitors feel as though they have stepped foot in Mexico. Owners Oscar and Laura Sanchez hail from Monterrey and wanted to bring a taste of their hometown to Mexico. Mariachis play daily, and the festive setting also features colorful murals and authentic Mexican decor. For dinner, enjoy the fajitas served with guacamole, pico de gallo, charro beans, and the choice of chicken or beef. 

Along with these restaurants, our luxury apartments in Uptown Dallas are also near premier shopping destinations and world-renowned attractions. If you’re searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We will schedule a tour where you can see firsthand all we have to offer.
