Hacienda on Henderson
Dallas, TX 75206-7024
Dallas Observer's Description
Inhabiting a 1940s-era house (hence, hacienda) on Henderson, this restaurant brings the Tex-Mex and homey feeling to a crowded, high-energy entertainment district. It's an extremely colorful and frenetic home, one filled with Mexican kitsch, burritos, enchiladas, tacos and fajitas during lunch and dinner. The chicken enchiladas with pepperjack cheese and sour cream tomatillo salsa, chile relleno platter, pork tamales and sopapillas are house specialties. However, the kitchen takes a sharp turn south with its popular empanadas app. Late night, the former Cuquita's spot changes its tune, featuring DJs, a truncated menu and barhopping party mobs that spill out onto the patio during warm weather. Whatever time of day -- the restaurant's open for brunch, too -- owners Pat Tetrick, Miles Zuniga and Chris Faulkner have more than 40 tequilas (five on tap) to pair with your grub.
Tips from foursquare
It's great there's a 20% off special here for foursquare users, but when your waitress cops a badittude with you and tells you that you have to print the offer out to get it, tell her to piss off.
Get the mango habanero infused tequila... a superb combo of sweet and hot...wait for it... wait for it!
Enjoyable patio that provides a sense of togetherness. Family.
The Pink Taco is delicious!
Try the habanero-infused tequila and feel the burn.
