Odelay

The menu at Odelay is diverse and includes some of your favorite Tex-Mex combo classics like enchiladas, pan-fried tacos and tamales. It also ventures west and features some New Mexico staples like green chile pork stew with posole. The house specialties include a Frito tamale pie, wagyu brisket tacos and Berkshire puerco con mole verde.

The enchiladas are fantastic as is the shrimp cocktail, naked chile rellenos (baked not fried) and tres quail (wrapped in bacon and stuffed with jalapeño). And believe it or not, they even offer a smash burger served with their house-ground wagyu blend, American cheese, minced red onions, green chiles, pickles, lettuce and a chipotle special sauce. Don't miss the chicken fried steak; a pounded and fried ribeye steak served with queso, black beans, sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo. The restaurant is multi-level and there are several C-shaped booths in the main dining area. A large U-shaped bar seats 20 to 25 with a beautiful stained-glass window centerpiece filled with beautiful bottles of tequila and spirits. Four hand-painted highly detailed murals run along the main arched wall of the restaurant. One noteworthy mural is a rendition of a picture taken in 1989 at Mia’s Tex-Mex of a meeting between Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson where it is said that Jerry offered Jimmy the job of head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.
