My boyfriend and I ordered the queso appetizer, the chef had decorated the dish, which had a line of ground beef in the middle. There was so much grease run off from the beef it pooled on top of the queso. My boyfriend had ordered the beef tacos and I ordered the chimichanga. My boyfriend didn't even take a bite when they came to the table. There was again so much grease run off from the beef that it had soaked through the bottom of the tacos and pooled on the plate. The chimicanga was dry and slightly burnt. When my boyfriend sent back the tacos, the manager just removed the price of the tacos from the ticket, he did nothing else. Did not offer to take a percentage off the ticket or compensate us in any way. One of the worst dining experiences I have Ever had. I DO NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone. The ONLY reason it got one star is because I had to rate it to publish this.

Mediocre cuisine

This wasn't the worst Mexican food I've ever had, but it was close. The were some tasy things, the cumin-spiced rice and the spicy salsa being two of them, but many of the entrees we had were lacking. The ribs tasted as if they had been boiled, the ceviche had a heavy ketchup base that was off putting, the rellenos were a little raw. In general, no one at our table of ten walked away vowing to return. (They were also out of a brand of tequila on their admittedly extensive menu.) Pleasant and attentive wait staff, charming decor and dining outdoors offset forgettable food.



OH My Goodness... it's was Exceptional

RJ Mexican Cuisine: Great Seafood - Steaks - Chicken - Ribs

Dallas, TX

Review Date: 08/27/2008

OH My Goodness... I wasn't really in the mood for Mexican Food when I walked in there but I kept an open mind and I was blown away. Starting with the hot and spicy wasn't enough to drive me away from it but it was enough to make my nose run and want some water. It was delish!

I order Tacos and they were wonderful. Although I expected to get a typical taco with meat, cheese, lettuce and so but it came out with just meat and cheese and I was surprised with how much flavor it boasted. It came with a side of refried beans (which I usually hate) but they were also wonderful, slightly creamier than normal but they drew in a wonderful garlic accent with some additional spices I couldn't put my toungue on.

The atmosphere was lovely and the staff was wonderful and a delight, RJ even opened the door for us. Even though it was raining, they opened up the patio for us so we could have a drink out there and be able to smoke. I would definately revisit them and I would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent Mexican Food... plus great seafood and steaks. Would rate #1 restaurant.

It is our unbelievable eating experience at RJ Mexican Cuisine. This is our first visit at Dallas downtown; we are from Florida visiting on business trip and found this locally owned restaurant in downtown Dallas. We go out occasionally at restaurants but this is our best ever experienced at RJ Mexican Cuisine. We went to RJ on Nov 2nd 2008, atmosphere at RJ was so excellent, there entree prices were so low, actually we thought it would be a very high price food restaurant., but it wasn?t so.. Food server was so nice and very attentive, our food arrived shortly and we had an excellent time there. We never thought this place would be as good as we ever thought it would be? we would rate this restaurant number one in all aspects??

Great Attitude!

I highly recommend anyone to go to Rj Mexican Cuisine! Their so kind and can take care of you the way it should be. I went a couple of days ago the service was excilent. The manager was so kind to make sure that everthing was going good and that we were getting the attention we need. I also remember seeing large groups of ladies coming in and all the staff taking good care of them. Everyone seem to be enjoying their dinner. The food was great and the decor was pretty!

Best Mexican Cuisine!

Rj Mexican Cuisine was a wonderful experience for me and my family! From the moment i walked in the door they made me feel as if they were there just to treat me. As i looked around i noticed that they treated everyone with the same kindness. Our server was far the most sweetest girl and very knowledgable about the menu. Ididn't even have to ask for a refil! She was very quick and never once showed any sing of negitive attitude!! Our dinner was excellent. The steak was drepared just like my husband likes it! The desert was incredible! They even have a small area for big parties! As it looked everyone was enjoying themselves and as the time passed i didn't see any complaints being made or any costumers not happy with what they were getting! It was so wonderful and my kids loved it! I surely recommend for everyone to come and check out the place!!



Don't waste your money

This was by far one of the worse restaurants I have ever been. The wait staff was slow and not very knowledgeable or helpful. One of the kids in our party of 6 ordered french fries. It took 10 minutes to get ketchup and it was spoiled and soured. The bathrooms were disgusting, smelly and gross. Even the sink was stopped up and about to overflow with water. It took 15 minutes for a manager to come talk to me. The General Manager Jay Khan wasn’t concerned or apologetic. He even rolled his eyes when I was express health concerns about the spoiled ketchup. NEVER COMING BACK!!! Stay away from this place, there are plenty of better places to spend your money.

Never coming back!

The service is pathetic. The waiter had two other tables besides mine and I could never get his attention. He was the great houdini - disappearing all the time. I needed my drink refilled and didn't receive it until the meal was over. I couldn't wait to get out. The bathrooms were dirty and smelly too!

Great authentic Mexican food.

Great authentic mexican food. Loved the atmosphere and the Patio is beautiful with a great view of the old cobblestone street. We had wonderful service and a great experience. We always look for good mexican food when we come to Dallas, and we will for sure be back again. Loved the Chile Rellenos.
Convenient Valet parking right across the street. It was not there last time we were in town, its an added bonus. See you soon.

Good food. Bad service.

Great restaurant, but the service does not match the food. Our server greeted us by saying, ""I'm __ and I'm really busy"". Not a good start. Didn't bring the guacamole we ordered, brought 3 tortillas for 2 people sharing fajitas. Walked by our table 4 times (carrying a large empty tray) without clearing our used dishes. Dropped our check and picked up 2 dishes. We would have ordered a dessert as we were celebrating a birthday, but wasn't offered. Horrible service. Good food.

Excellent service!

Loved the food the service and the pricing was very fair considering we are in the West End. I loved the suiza! Everything looked good though, so I don't think you can go wrong. Say hi to the Host for me. He was quite charming :) I too will be back!

I will be back! Loved the patio as well!

I loved the corner booth they put my party in. We had 6 people for a business lunch and it was like having our own conference room with a personal waiter! The salsa was out of this world and the standard of Mexican food I knew was just raised up a notch. All in all an excellent experience! The ambiance was so unexpected for the west end, very elegant in a Nuevo kind of way. If you like to people watch sit on their patio. Great place to spend an evening or afternoon.

Will NOT be going back

Rj's did not impress anyone in our group of ten. The decor was nice, and that is about all they had going for them. I had made reservations 3 days before and arrived on time, the hostess sat us, but we didn't see a waiter until 15 minutes later. Are drinks didn't arrive for another 10 minutes. The food came out after an hour of being at the restaurant. The chicken enchiladas were average, and the steak overcoooked.

Tourist trap, horrible everything

I would not go here again ever! The waiter was unknowledgable and tried to make up for it in cheeziness. The margaritas tasted like sugar syrup. And the food very unimpressive while overpriced for the place. That is when they finally got the order right after the third try. At this point our waiter dissapeared, the manager tried to have us over pay and finally corrected it after arguing with me about it. Then I showed him the correct pricing on the menu. After finally leaving we all had an upset stomach. I will say the decor is nice, but that would not be a reason for going to a resturant!
