Tex-Mex
Mesero is beyond Tex Mex, but lives up to its promise of Mexican Spirit American Life. One taste of the iconic Queso Mesero and brisket tacos will keep you coming back for more. The shrimp loaded ceviche is truly crave worthy. Be sure not to skip the amazing drink list, it’s the best part!

This is our favorite Mexican food restaurant in Dallas!! The food is always delicious and the margaritas the best - especially the the Meserita and the El Santo. The waiters are all wonderful and friendly! Can't wait to go back.

My friends and I went for dinner last Friday, September 7th, and the noise level was absolutely terrible! We couldn't converse without shouting! This was at 5:30 pm. I can only imagine how much worse the noise gets a bit later in the evening. The restaurant must address this!

Great food. Love getting 3 dips/salsas/guac with my chips. Like that the chips come in my own little refillable cup. Love that the dips are re-plenished. Food was great. I need the green beans recipe. Drink prices are a little expensive for me, but otherwise a great place. Have a reservation because it's packed - especially with families at dinnertime.

Really disappointing attempt at date night. We sat down, and each ordered a margarita and ordered ceviche to share for an appetizer. When our waiter came back with our margaritas, he took our order. A few minutes later, our ceviche came out. We asked for chips, and within 60 seconds of them being brought out, our entrees appeared, not even giving us a chance to have two bites of our appetizer and within 10 minutes of sitting down at the table. We came for a relaxing date night. We're not lingerers, but I don't think I should have to reach over my huge dinner plate to reach any of my appetizer that I wasn't given a chance to eat. My husband noticed he hadn't gotten the beans that were to come with his entree, so he requested them. The waiter said they were the beans that he (the waiter) had given to me on the plate with my tortillas, and proceeded to take the beans away from me and put them on my husband's plate. I don't know how much a tiny bowl of beans costs, but I can't imagine it's so much that the waiter can't bring my husband his own beans instead of making him eat the ones that were served to me and I've already had a bite of. The food was decent and if the service had been better and allowed us to enjoy our food, I would go back. Unfortunately based on our experience, I won't.

They were supposed to acknowledge a birthday for us on this visit, but forgot to do so until I asked - and then charged us for the slice of birthday cake.... we questioned it and they said yes they charge for that. Interesting - no one else does! So expensive for what you get - the drinks are so overpriced.

I always have the shrimp Ceviche. We usually dine at the Beltline location and I like their preparation much better than Inwood because they do not put sauce over the top of the shrimp and avocado ceviche. That sauce to me killed the freshness of the dish. It literally ruined the dish for me.

We have had consistently good food and service here for two years. The signature drinks are excellent. The guacamole is simple, yet excellent. Their salsas are both unique and interesting as sides to their solidly dependable entrees. A bit loud with families at time, but worth looking past that challenge. We take friends here and know we will not be disappointed.

This was our first time here. The food was awesome. The flavors exceptional and not hot spicey (great for someone like me who doesn't enjoy hot spicey food). The manager was friendly and couteous and made us feel at home. He was constantly wandering the floor and interacting with people explaining dishes and the flavors. We noted that he didn't ask us if the food was good, he asked us if the flavors were good! Beware the Brandon, it was strong! I noted on Open Table it was a birthday, but nothing was said about it when we arrived and I didn't say anything. It's a kid friendly place as families were abundant, which also meant the noise level was very high and we occassionally found ourselves shouting to be heard. Maybe if we'd gone later in the evening the noise wouldn't be so loud. Overall, we enjoyed the experience and we will be back.

As usual, a very good dining experience. Tried the chicken tacos for a change, and my only criticism is the corn tortillas were just a bit tough/hard. Would have preferred a softer, more tender tortilla for my tacos. Otherwise, fantastic meal.

We always enjoy drinks and a meal at Mesero. Not just the 'run of the mill' Mexican; every dish I've selected there has been something special. Even the in-house made chips and three flavor salsas are both unique and tasty. Can't wait til my next visit with friends.
