RJ Mexican Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
My friends and I had met up to eat dinner here. The ambiance was very nice, However, i was very disappointed by how cold they kept the restaurant. Imagine a restaurant with air conditioning on, or no heat on when it's 17 and below outside..... They even had a fireplace that was unlit. I hinted and then eventually asked my waiter several times about the heat, to which he responded as if he didn't notice or didn't care. I'm not exaggerating when i say that it was very cold in this restaurant. I was embarrassed that i had even suggested this restaurant, since we had never been there before. The only amount of heat provided was from my fajitas...speaking of which, i think the food could be truly good to those who love spicy food! While my fajitas were good, everything else, including my beans were extremely spicy for some reason. The other entrees at my table were enchiladas and soup. Not sure i'll be back at this restaurant during the winter
First time experience was on Christmas evening. Had a limited menu + open buffet of fajitas, nachos, and brisket. The food was delicious (especially the brisket). We helped ourselves to seconds. The ambience was great, service was great - we will definitely be back on a normal night!
I had been to RJ’s once before and Had a poor experience but decided to give it another shot for Christmas dinner.
We made reservations...I did see that they had a special menu, including 4 different steaks, a surf and turf, and a taco/fajita buffet.
We arrived and waited behind a family for about 3 minutes...no host was there, more people came in.
Finally, the family in front of us were showed to their seats...but still no greeting and no host. Another minute passed and someone asked if we had been helped...we said no and the man thanked us for our patience and said someone would be there...another minute and someone show up and we were seated. Not horrible but a shaky start. As we were showed to our table, the man pointed to a table saying this was our table and he walked off in another direction...we hesitated, but sat ourselves.
We saw a menu and realized this was the only offering...which was ok, except the menu had no appetizers or starters...just a choice of five entrees and the taco/fajita buffet. The only dessert offered was brownies.
We asked for a drink menu twice...settled on 2 different margaritas... mine was heavy on the sweet and sour, his was just very sweet.
We asked about appetizers and were told none was available...but I that they could give us chips and salsa if we ordered entrees. We ordered steak and surf and turf...chips never made it.
The surf and turf came with lobster , shrimp, and filet..with optional lump crab...but the waiter was unfamiliar with the offering and trying to add the crab was awkwardly a fail...he couldn’t understand what we wanted somehow.
We attempted to order a bottle of wine...but after ordering the 2 Cabernet offerings they had and finding they were out of both...we gave up on wine.
The steaks were good...no issues with the flavor and temps of the steaks. The potatoes were ok, vegetables were a soggy mess.
We were not offered dessert...we left with a less than content feeling overall.
The service was good; ambience is nice. The dirty martini was too dirty (way too much olive juice), the tortilla soup was way too salty, as was the specialty taco. My wife’s ribeye was of low quality; so much grizzle it was hard to find the good parts. It’s not a place we’ll go to again while in Dallas.
We were a group of 13 from Ottawa and everything was perfect. Great service topped by even better food. Restaurant honoured the patio drink special in the resaurant without issue. We come to Dallas every year for sporting events and we will be back for sure. cheers from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Enjoyable dinning experience,we plan to visit again. They’re are many main courses we’d like to try,as well as appetizers on the menu that are intriguing.The atmosphere is modern clean ,lighting created a nice relaxing meal ,understand the weekend is kinda quite,we completely enjoyed the entire experience and look forward to returning soon,highly recommend and nice to return to the west end.
Very nice place. Food was very good better than I expected for some reason. Juan was a very good server. My wife had some sort of street tacos and she loved them. I had the cheese enchiladas and they were packed full of cheese, topping were very good. Portion were big. We will be back
Our waiter, Jose, was great. There when we needed to order and get our glasses refilled, but left us to dine in peace. We thought the food, I had child relllenos and my wife had shrimp tacos, were excellent. The vinegar based cold slaw was a treat I've not seen in a Mexican food place. We sat in a booth, and we were served quickly and were not pressured to leave while we were waiting for our children to call from the airport to pick them up. I'm surprised it was not a lot more crowded, as the food is a bargain for the quality. I would definitely go back when I am in downtown Dallas.
While it was nice to find a Mexican restaurant that was able to accommodate a large party on Cinco de Mayo, I will probably not return. It was extremely crowded in the room that we were seated, back to back with another large party. It was very loud and because it was so crowded, I thought that the service was kind of lacking, or maybe just running behind. I don't remember the food being terrible, but it also was not anything that stood out to me either.
Michael, my server, was friendly yet professional. I ordered the garlic shrimp, a dish that included chipotle. While the food was tasty, the chipotle overpowered the garlic. I have had garlic shrimp many places, including in Spain--never with chipotle. I ordered a dry Tito's martini. It was not dry. I mentioned this to Michael and said that if I ordered a second one, it needed to be dry. I did have a second one with the same ill prepared result. I feel that it was not really my server's fault, rather that of the bartender. Nonetheless, I believe that the customer's wishes should be respected. Should I return, I will insist on proper preparation.
We arrived at the restaurant and found out that our reservation was cancelled. They did however accommodate our large group. The Margaritas were really good, I also enjoyed the chips and salsa. The food not so much. I was displeased that for our large group of 20+ people we only had one waiter. He had to take care of all of us, and I didn't think that was fair at all. He did have some help from another waitress at one point but by the end of the dinner it took 40 minutes to get our checks back. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:20 and ended up leaving a little past 10:00 pm.
A waiter also brought out a birthday dessert and thought it was okay to pick up a spoon full cool whip and smear it all over my friends face. It fell on her outfit and she had to wear a jacket for the rest of the night because the stain would not come out of her shirt.
I usually don't talk negatively about businesses in social media, but our experience here was a complete Train Wreck! I've never experienced something so bad. The sad thing is that the food was Amazing!
It started with our server telling us that they can't do accommodate a special request due to food allergies ... A simple substitution for grilled chicken instead of smoked chicken and no bacon on a quesadilla. Eventually we talked with the manager and it was no problem. Our drinks took 25 minutes to arrive .. When asking for a beer glass we were told they were out of glasses ... Had to go to the bar and we instantly had a frosty glass. Then 1/2 of our parties orders did not get placed. So we are separately. Then when the rest of the food arrived ... One order with shrimp enchiladas one of the enchiladas had No shrimp. And the other order of shrimp quesadillas was chicken quesadillas. They eventually gave us a 25% discount, but it was a completely frustrating evening. We will never be back .. Too bad - the foods really good!
Made reservation. Sat 40 minutes later. Water on table 60 minutes after reservation time. Server forgot straws for kids drinks twice. Ordered chips/salsa. Salsa arrived quickly. Asked for the chips twice. Finally arrived 2 minutes before main meal. Asked 3 people for check. Finally arrived once I found a manager. Worst service I have had in over 20 years. Food decent but not worth the painful service experience.
