La Calle Doce Oak Cliff

415 W. 12th St. Dallas, TX 75208 | Oak Cliff & South Dallas | 214-941-4304

Location Description:

Oscar and Laura Sanchez have welcomed customers to their seafood and Tex-Mex restaurant since September 1981. Among the Sanchezes' signature dishes are the pescado a la parilla, ceviche and camarón a la Veracruzana. La Calle Doce (Spanish for 12th Street) has décor awash in blues and whites and contains an open courtyard, all of which transports diners to coastal Mexico where fresh, whole-grilled fish await. However, if you want to enjoy these specials and beat the crowd of customers -- who the owners call their "extended family"-- weekdays are your best bet at this restaurant.
