The Herrera's location that closed recently on Maple Avenue has been revived and then some at its new address in West Dallas. Touted as the original Hererra's, as a slew of spinoffs have opened and closed around the city, the new location opened for business yesterday and bests its previous locations by a truckload of enchiladas.
For starters there's a new patio that's partially shaded, landscaped with plants and outfitted with a number of tables. The outdoor seating is perfect for your taco cravings in all but the most extreme weather conditions.
Inside you'll find a number of dining rooms filled with a mix of high-tops, regular tables and booths. A smaller bar is probably the only downgrade from the previous location.
While I wolfed my way through a plate of sour cream enchiladas I heard no less than five customers gush to their servers about how happy they were that the new location was finally open for business. And looking around at all the tables and that stellar patio out front, it's hard not to think that the whole real estate debacle that caused the previous location to close turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to the place.
Hours are the same as the last location, so make your lunch or dinner plans. Herrera's is back, and they're ready to fatten you.
