Herrera's Mexican Restaurant - Closed

4024 Maple Ave. Dallas, TX 75219 | Uptown & Oak Lawn | 214-528-9644

Location Description:

This National Geographic-featured hole-in-the-wall is lauded for its enchiladas and dedicated regulars -- 30 years of scarfing down the popular whopper plate The Jimmy's Special (cheese enchilada, chicken enchilada with ranchero sauce, one cheese taco, one beef taco with guac, not to mention a burrito with beans, rice, and chunky cuts of beef) should get you a discount. Or a larger pants size. Afraid of the plethora of eats precariously fitted on to the platter? Try one of the numbered combos. But they're not much smaller.
