El Pueblo

Some of the best enchiladas verdes in Dallas can be found here, and if you agree with us, you can order them in an enormous platter of six. There are other hits on the menu too, including picadillo gorditas, lengua tacos and divine mole. Stacks of tortillas make a carnitas platter or a plate of pollo en mole even more enticing. This is some of Oak Cliff’s best Mexican comfort food, and El Pueblo has been carrying out a lively trade in takeout during the pandemic in addition to seating customers at every other table in the dining room.

Top pick: We advise going for the regular-sized order of enchiladas, rather than the plate of six, because the plate of six doesn’t come with rice or beans.

The downside: As of our last visit, El Pueblo is still cash only.
