Restaurant review: E Bar Tex Mex lacks spice and intrigue
The free drink coupons might bring people for a second visit.
DALLAS E Bar Tex Mex caught our eye when we found out that the owner opened up Primo's on McKinney Avenue many years ago. This new spot is located on Haskell and Munger in a small complex that you might actually miss if you aren't truly paying attention. E Bar had a nice covered patio with about ten tables and a couple of TVs. The inside is pretty bare bones with a bar on one side and then about 15 tables total. The entire time we dined, we were the only customers. We started with the queso which was served up in large bowl complete with sour cream, guacamole and ground beef. The queso needed to be a bit warmer for our taste and overall lacked flavor.
We ordered the spinach and mushroom enchiladas which came with Mexican rice and refried beans. The beans were a bit watered down, but the enchiladas were pretty good. They were heaped with cheese and had a dollop of green salsa mixed in right on top.
We also ordered the brisket tacos which came with a side of Mexican rice and beans. The tacos were good, but we've had better.
Finally, we went with the chicken quesadillas that came with a nice portion of guacamole and sour cream. They needed to punch up the flavor a bit on this menu staple.
The staff was extremely attentive and cheery. On the way out, we received free drink coupons for our return. We might be willing to try this spot for a cocktail in hopes that they work out a few kitchen kinks.
