The house salad and margaritas were very good. My husband and I thought our burritos and enchiladas were a bit bland.

Found it charming. The Margaritas were excellent. Server Melissa provided positive ideas, especially the Canalope Margarita. Who would have thought. The food was delicious and Wednesday’s 3 for 2 combo made for a great value.

If your looking for a good margarita this is your place. I’d go back for happy hour only. The food was just ok. In the restaurant’s defense my husband and I are not huge fans of Mexican, but we went with friends. I ordered the southern hot chicken and out of the 3 pieces the largest looked a little pink. My husband ordered the steak and it was fatty. The house made tortilla chips were awesome and the margaritas were fabulous.

Celebrating my brother passing the PA state bar. Only issue is that the margarita pitchers are way overpriced and I could probably drink 3 or 4 pitchers and pass a breathalyzer no problem.

I've eaten at Tex Mex Connection many time throughout the years but this was my single best meal there ever. Tasty margaritas and great food. I really appreciated the server, Laura, helping me with vegetarian options for my meal. Tex Mex is a really great local place that you should support instead of all of the lousy chain options around.

Tex Mex never disappoints, great food and margaritas. We took our daughter for her 21st birthday and it was great. We had several appetizers, such as crab burritos, chicken quesadillas, nachos and one of the app. specials. Food was top notch!

Very pleasant and fun server, patient with our slow and muddled ordering, though she missed a few cues, forgetting to follow through on two requests until reminded. My entree of pick two: enchilada was very good, but disappointingly small; chili relleno was more bread covering than chili - big disappointment (can't even remember eating the cheese inside).

A place that’s been in business since 1984 really says something. I’m sad to say that I haven’t been to Tex Mex for at least 20 something years. Sad because I’ve been missing out on this local gem for just as long. Delicious margaritas (there is a reason there is a 3 marg max). We shared the spring rolls. I had baja fish tacos and my boyfriend had the crab burritos. Everything was delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. We will be back for sure, and it won’t be 20 years from now.

Food is just not as good as it use to be!
Our food came out & was barely warm.
Taco shells dried out. Very disappointed!
We also think the manager is old & at time rude!
We live in Lansdale & have been coming to Tex Mex for almost 20 years, we will not be returning

We went to Tex Mex on a whim. I saw on their website that they had a designated gluten free menu.
Everything we had was delicious...Chile, tacos, etc. I loved the lime on every dish I had. Service was great. Presentation was excellent. My only complaint was that the food could have been hot. Even the rice and beans were more room temperature.

The place had a musty odor, when you go to use the table napkins they smell horrible as well. To top it off both my wife and I got sick after dinner there last night. Our server however was fantastic! But we will not be going back!

The food and drinks were spot on. The service was lacking. I would come back but request a different server. Also they need to fix the leaking vent issue. I was told it just happens when it’s hot. But through out the entire meal I keep getting hit in the head or body by this leak in the vent.
