Fact: The frozen margarita machine was invented in Dallas.

And everyone knows that a frozen margarita is best served while devouring cheesey enchiladas or tacos or good old chips and salsa.

These are the eight best Mexican restaurants in Dallas right now. (And we'll tell you what to order at each.)

mias

Best Tacos: Mia’s

Tuesdays were made for Mia’s brisket tacos, which are hands-down the best in the city. Don't forget to also order the rellenos.

4322 Lemmon Ave.; 214-526-1020 or miastexmex.com

tacodiner1

Best Salad: Taco Diner

It’s called the Los Cabos, and it’s made with the perfect blend of bleu cheese, avocado and chipotle Caesar dressing.

4011 Villanova, Dr.; 214-696-4944 or tacodinerrestaurants.com

mesero1

Best Salsas: Mesero

Clearly Chef Mico knows a lot about salsa, and his five specialties--including a chunky green and red tomato and a spicy habanero--are worth a trip in itself.

5330 W. Lovers Lane, Ste. 112B; 214-654-0185 or meseromiguel.com

ceviche
Local Sugar

Best Ceviche: El Bolero

Bolero transports us each time to the Mexican coast thanks to a ceviche bar (be sure to order the TK) and dishes like whole grilled fish of the day served with warm tortilla, pico and pickled onions.

1201 Oak Lawn Ave., Ste. 160; 214-741-1986 or elboleromexican.com

ojedas1

Best Enchiladas: Ojeda’s

They're smothered in cheese at this family run joint. And their breakfast, which is served all day, isn’t too shabby either. Yep, you can have huevos rancheros for dinner.

4617 Maple Ave.; 214-528-8383 or ojedasrestaurant.com

jorges

Best Brunch: Jorge’s Café

Splenditas (low-calorie margaritas), dollar mimosas and huevos con chorizo before noon. Ole!

1722 Routh St.; 214-720-2211 or jorgestexmex.com

elfenix
The dallas whisperer

Best Comfort Food: El Fenix

Because the Martinez Family Way has been a Dallas staple for almost 100 years. Get the TKTK.

1607 McKinney Ave.; 214-747-1121 or elfenix.com

guac1

Best guacamole: Javier’s

It's classic and creamy and never too much of the traditional fixings (onions, jalapenos, lime juice, cilantro) which is what we expect from the classic Mexican haunt.

4912 Cole Ave.; 214-521-4211 or javiers.net
