A homey neighborhood joint with a huge Tex-Mex and Taxco-Mex menu that's found quite a following with good reason. Along with the usual chips and salsa, starters also come with a steaming cup of delicious, beer-spiked bean soup. The Mex-Mex items are the most interesting: A huge portion of lean pork guisado was rendered extra-spicy with lots of red pepper flakes, and the snapper veracruzano was rich with mushrooms, cilantro and diced garlic, though the fish was slightly overcooked. Wash away the fire with a fruity imported Mexican soda. Casa Navarro's sopapillas have to be the biggest, most billowy specimens in Dallas. Don't miss them.
