Herrera's

Kathy Tran
This National Geographic-featured hole-in-the-wall is lauded for its enchiladas and dedicated regulars, who have been scarfing down combination plates for more than 40 years. Hungry? Try the popular Jimmy's Special, which contains no less than a cheese enchilada, chicken enchilada with ranchero sauce, cheese taco, beef taco with guac, plus a burrito with beans, rice and chunky cuts of beef. If that combo doesn’t suit you, there are more than 50 others. Herrera’s recently gave up its long tenure on Maple Avenue to move to Sylvan Avenue in West Dallas. Traditionalists need not fear the move, because the new location is just as charming as its predecessors. In fact, it’s even better. Check out that massive patio you have to walk through to get to the front door. Margarita, anyone?
