Miriam Cocina Latina
Dallas-Fort Worth’s Best Mexican Restaurants for Cinco de Mayo and Beyond
If you’re lucky, you’ll spot this restaurant’s namesake chef running the ship on your next visit—even behind a mask, her smile’s utterly infectious. One of the nicest chef-owners in Dallas, Miriam Jimenez may hail from the Dominican Republic but she sure knows her way around a plate of Mexican food. Patio seating is a must here, with immediate views of Klyde Warren Park and downtown’s cityscape just beyond. Spend a leisurely hour or two sipping Palomas or Spicy Pepinos (a way-too-easy-to-drink concoction of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, fresh cucumber, and citrus). To accompany your beverages, try some lobster enchiladas or tacos del Pacifico made with spicy shrimp, poblano peppers, spicy aioli, roasted onion, and pineapple.
How to reserve/order: Dine in, call 214-855-5275 for take-out, or order delivery from Uber Eats and DoorDash.
