We have eaten here since the beginning in the 1970's and found they moved their location to Sylvan in Dallas. Parking lot is not large enough for seating occupancy. We were seated at a temporary plastic table that moved every time someone touched it. Had to wait for the rest of our party as they were late and it was... More

Enjoyed the original Herrera's on Maple many times over the years so was a bit reluctant to try the "new and improved" location. I'm glad we did. It was well worth the trip over to Sylvan. The chicken on both the enchiladas and the soft tacos was prepared just right. Wife and I were both very happy with our selections.... More

Know that the restaurant has moved to a new location. It is now on Sylvan south of the river. But accept no substitute as this is the original and historic Herrera's. Now in it's 4th location this family run Tex Mex Cafe is likely the best in North Texas. Great enchiladas, great guac and chips and hot sauce are not... More

I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years. it started as a little small 10 table café. you walked in and you could actually watch the family preparing all the food, from the tortilla chips to the tamales and enchiladas. This café was so good the line would be out the door and people would wait to... More

Love this place! I love hot and spicy salsa, and 99% of places I've been to are afraid to serve it.... not Herrera's! Main dishes are good too! But give me the salsa and chips and I'm happy!

I haven't been to Herrera's in years. We went with family. My daughter in law said the margarita is good. We all like their bean soup; it has good flavor. Their salsa is inedibly too hot. We ordered milder salsa & they said they don't have any milder salsa. I ordered the Jessica: one cheese enchilada, one beef taco, rice... More

We have been eating here since the 1980's. All I can say is "yummy". Gr8 food. Gr8 service. We always get the 2B. Tacos r the best around. Highly suggest.

You gotta get here. Food and service is awesome. Price is reasonable and a new building is on its way. If you want to go to the original you gotta come on.

We've seen Herrera's show up on a lot of "Best of Dallas" lists so we thought it was worth the 30 minute drive into the city. The options were plentiful, the staff was attentive and the salsa was great, but I don't think I'd list it in the top 5 of Tex-Mex/Mexican food of Dallas. The chips were greasy and... More
