The food at Mexican Inn Cafe is always fast, hot and fresh. There are several locations in the Fort Worth area but I always go to the one located near downtown on Henderson St. The best part is always your own individual bowl of chips and salsa so no need to worry about double dippers! There used to be one... More

Food was wonderful! We got our food super fast! Service was superb! Love a Mexican restaurant that gives you corn tortillas with chips before the meal. Salsa was quite tasty.

Happy, festive atmosphere! The cheese enchiladas were extra good. Great service and the food came out hot, which is really important to me. :) The tacos were very good too. Nice and crunchy! The only down side was that the chips were like homemade Fritos, and the hot sauce was a little bland. But I like spicy so that might... More

We enjoy the Mexican Inn as we know what we are going to get....consistently good Tex-Mex. Everything is good from the tacos to the enchiladas to the fajitas. Service is usually consistent and prompt. Prices are reasonable. If you enjoy Tex Mex, you should try the Mexican Inn. Several locations around the Ft Worth area.

There are many who swear by Mexican Inn. I'm proof that it's not for everyone. I visited the Lancaster location for lunch on a weekday and ordered the quesadillas with beef. I found the food just OK. It didn't have much taste, and the beef was about what one would expect for less than $10 an entree. I also wasn't... More

We had never had BBQ in our tacos or burritos, but it was a perfect match. Chips were very good also. Busy restaurant, but service was very good.

I always know what I am getting at the Mexican Inn...good Tex Mex with no frills and good service! When I cannot decide where I want to go to eat...this is my fall back place. Plenty of selection, fair prices, fast and friendly service. If you are looking for Tex Mex you could do a lot...a lot...worse than stopping at... More

Growing up in Fort Worth, this restaurant was a regular hot spot for us. Even though I now live in San Antonio, I never miss a visit to the Mexican Inn when I return to visit family. The chips are amazing! Fresh and tasty picante sauce. Love their cheese enchiladas. The original restaurant is my favorite! Love the Mexican tiles!... More
