Mattito's Cafe Mexicano

3102 Oak Lawn Ave Dallas, TX 75219 | Uptown & Oak Lawn | 214-526-8181

Location Description:

Nestled on what might be one of the most confusing intersections in Dallas, Mattito's is, in contrast, nothing but easy-going, fun-to-eat Tex-Mex. Classics such as enchiladas and flautas (an excellent choice) mingle with variations of fajita platters and taco salads (go with the seasoned beef). The restaurant is also a favorite brunch spot and is nice enough to serve breakfast much of the day. Queso dip is creamy and clings to the fresh and plentiful tortilla chips like a high-calorie blanket-a must-order. Recommended for birthday lunches and other office functions thanks to the valet parking and party rooms.
