After four years of using this shop I have decided to move on. I rate them at 3 out of 5 stars, which in my mind equals a 60% rating. They are on the borderline of being a decent shop, but they have some issues that stand in their way. 1. They do not communicate well. They will do the absolute minimum in regards to reaching out to you about your car, and when they do, it's a brief synopsis with very limited options. 2. They just don't do the best work. I don't know exactly what their mechanic's expertise is, but it seems to me that he can be limited in his abilities. His work is also sloppy. Dirt and grime is usually around the work area of the interior of the car, he broke off pieces of the dashboard of my truck on my last visit, and it seems like his attention to detail is fair at best. 3. If you hint at dissatisfaction or frustration, they will respond right back at you with frustration and try to blame you for some reason. Their mechanic is very curt and can get snarky if you ask too many questions and the owner of the shop seems extremely detached from the real work that’s going on – as far as I’m concerned, she just runs the office. Which leads to my next point... 4. Their customer service is non-existent. They do not treat you like a customer - they treat you like you're a family friend that is wanting their car fixed for free. Their attitude about the job they do is that they are doing you a favor, not providing you with a service. They do not go above and beyond, and only when they make a mistake do they try to make things right - which for me, has been more than half the times I've been there. Here are my personal experiences: I've had an A/C tube failed to be re-installed after a fan was fixed, which resulted in the tube bouncing around the engine compartment, banging against the other engine fans. I've had them repair wiring on a door, only to fail less than a year later (I got the dealer to fix that one). The last straw was when I had them work on my truck for two weeks, only to drive it home and realize that the radio wouldn't turn on and that my interior dash lights were not plugged in - I returned them the vehicle and was assured that they could fix it while I wait. I showed up when the mechanic was "at lunch" after he told me to come up there about 30 minutes before, and I waited an hour for him to come back. It took him another 30 minutes to realize that he probably wasn't going to get everything fixed while I wait, also expressing his doubt that the radio worked when I first showed up... He begrudgingly offered to drive me home, which I denied - I didn't want him to think he was doing me any favors. They kept my truck for another two weeks and said that they'll fix it "free of charge" - like I was going to let them charge me for something they didn't fix in the first place. When the truck was ready, the owner tried to call me one time but for some reason got a "the owner is not accepting phone calls at this time" (which is weird because I had received calls that day as well as that entire week). She never called me back or left me a message to tell me the truck was ready. When I finally called she said it had been ready for a week. She said she tried to call me - but only documented one call that didn't go through and she never left a message. You might be thinking, "Why did you keep bringing your cars to them?" The answer to that is that they are a community shop that has served my home for many years and I believe in supporting our local businesses. But the fact is, they're not the only shop around my house and my loyalty to them is exhausted. If you have minor/simple work to be done I'm sure this shop can handle it. However, anything too complicated and I guarantee you it won't be worth the hassle working with this shop. Bring in your oil changes and brakes to these guys, but leave the hard stuff for a more capable shop.

1st, I must say that my review is influenced by the environment and not jut the food itself, which was likely influenced by the store front possibly not being complete construction wise? The food: Ordered a Ex Lrg thin NY cheese pizza. I'm very picky, and there's only a select handful of places around I consider to come close to real NY pizza, and to my surprise, the pie from Cha Cha was actually pretty good - makes my short list of places I consider acceptable. The only problem with the pizza was the oven. Like many short-cutting Texas places, they use a conveyor style oven instead of a true NY "deck" style oven. The key difference in the "standard" NYC deck oven is gets slightly hotter, but more importantly, the decks have stone surfaces. That's the key reason the crust comes out so good in NY, because the pizza is places on a 600-700 degree stone surface - so you get "conduction" from the bottom on the crust, and "radiation" from the normal oven heat on the top. If only Cha Cha would splurge for the real NY oven, it would be really good pizza. Too bad. THough the cheese and sauce were great, and unlike in the real NYC, the cheff was pretty friendly, and generous with the cheese too! We also ordered a meetball hero sandwich. It was ok, but nothing special. THe pizza was definitely more memorable than the hero. Pizza gets 4 stars The environment: Possibly construction related issues, but on our visit, it was hot inside (virtually no AC), there was no ice for sodas, and there wasn't even an operational bathroom. When I asked if there was at least a sink to wash my hands, they said due to plumbing problems, we had to go next door to the gas station. Kinda yuk, though the place was clean inside, so didn't discourage us from eating... Environment gets 2 stars.
I own a 2013 BMW 4series, and recently during the ridiculous weather conditions in Dallas.I was involve in a hit and run, by another vehicle on my rear left corner. The damages made me furious. I reported the damages to my insurance company and they told me every thing was covered but I had to pay a deductible. So I was driving to work the next day already been referred to service king by my insurance company. Than I passed by Texas Elite. Since I still had to take my car around lunch time to service king, I decided to stop by Texas Elite real quick for an Estimate. So I enter the collision center first thing I notice is this place was packed with with people in their lot , second thing I notice hard working man in uniform which was a good sign that this shop wasn't a hole in the wall. I was greeted immediately by one of the supervisors. I have to tell you this man knew his cars and especially how to treat customers. He took photos and about 10 min my estimate was ready. What were the odds that this place even existed? In Oak cliff. I saw the work they achieved on a Audi A4 I was seriously impress. The supervisor defitnetly won me over when he said he will help me with my deductible. During lunch time I received a call from Texas Elite's receptionist, she told me she got in contact with my insurance company and sent the necessary paper work. I didn't think twice in dropping off my car with service king since it was a drive from my job. After work I arranged the drop off. A week and a half later I picked up my vehicle and it was perfect again. The color was a match! In response to someone else's review on yelp.. this paint did not look like home Depot paint at all.I loved the work and quick service provided by this collision center. I definitely know we're to recommend my family and associates. Thanks guys! - Mrs.Travels
