Dallas Observer's Description
This is a truly distinctive Mexican restaurant that is essentially a collection of family recipes inspired by the cuisine of Cotija (for which the cheese was named), a small town in the southwestern state of Michoacan. Sinking their American roots in Arkansas with seven Mexican restaurants, the Oseguera family made their way to Dallas to perform before a more sophisticated audience. They succeed. Remarkable dishes include red snapper in chipotle lime butter sauce and the quail basted in ancho-chile sauce. Chile rellenos are treated with cinnamon, banana and white wine walnut sauce--like nothing you've tasted in the species.
Tips from foursquare
La Joya is great for a Girls Night Out...every Friday free Salsa Lessons! Edgar and Angel also make a yummy Blue Breeze and Hpno-rita
I thought the food was overpriced. The quac was good though!
Try their tilapia. Very good tasting! Also, if the weather is nice, check out the balcony.
Ask for the coconut habanero sauce if you like it seriously hot! Only available on request.
