Nuevo Leon Restaurant Review

: Nuevo Leon leans more toward traditional Mexican fare than most of the Tex-Mex joints in town. It prides itself on offering dishes that are not on many other menus in town, like barbecued goat and stewed beef tongue. Those who aren't quite so brave can feast on big plates of enchiladas, tacos or fajitas, washed down with a frosty margarita. Those with bigger appetites can opt for one of the steak and enchilada platters---like all the dinners, they come with rice and beans. Oddly enough, for such ultra-casual, inexpensive restaurants, they offer live entertainment some nights, which might include a harpist playing. Note: it's a good place for kids, and there are kid-size meals available.

Expensive Mediocre Mexican
by ChileSurfer on Sat Jul 21, 2012 7:42 am
 
Seriously people! The food was awful! The atmosphere terrible. Walk into a tiny, very old strip mall resto. Tiny square tables with hard backed chairs. Started out with a chips and salsa - chips hardly had any flavor (at least they were warm!) the salsa was so bad - worse than Pace. Kinda sour. My husband and I ordered the "special"- Brisket Tacos and Brisket Chile Relleno. The plates came with refried beans and rice. Suffice it to say, the beans tasted like they wee straight out of a can, the rice flavorless and the brisket was so bland my husband actually left some beef on his plate!!! My chile relleno was do dry I could only eat half of it! I ordered a coke. When it came time for a refill, the waitress went over to the fountain machine, filled a pitcher, shook all of the carbonation out then filled my plastic cup with flat Coke!!! the bill came and it ended up being a $50 meal!!!! HOLY COW - really? For very, very bad Tex-Mex? How could anyone rate this restaurant highly! I am only giving it 1 star because the people were so nice - they were attentive and happy...otherwise we'd be in the negative zone...
 
Nuevo Leon Mex-Mex My Favorite!

Nuevo Leon is Mex Mex which means you won't find any yellow cheese hanging around here. My favorite meal here is the Carnitas Con Chipotle which is melt in your mouth chunks of pork with a mild chipotle sauce, salad and borracho beans with tortillas (I choose corn). I mix up my little tacos and add salsa (red; mild, green; hot and brown -reyna- which is inbetween) I just wish I could eat more! These folks are cooking up authentic Mexican cuisine; all the staples such as enchiladas, fajitas, taco, puntas rancheras but also steaks, seafood and salads. They have refried beans, but there's no lard in them! There are also black beans and borracho beans which are sort of a pinto bean soup with a little beer for zing. I have never had a bad meal at Nuevo. I love the Nieve's salad which is essentially mixed salad with jicama, tomatoes, avacado, tortilla strips and chicken fajita meat with their house cilantro dressing-by far the best salad dressing I've ever eaten. They have wonderful desserts too. This is a gem buried in a strip mall in far northwest Dallas. Don't miss it!
