Fajitas in the Burbs: Check Out Cuellar’s Fajita Ranch

Cuellar’s Fajita Ranch

If you want to hear about the history of the fajita, nay, the history of Tex-Mex in Dallas, you’re going to want to talk to the Cuellars. They are certainly a huge part of what makes Tex-Mex what it is today. Ever heard of a little place called El Chico? Yeah I think you have. The Cuellars are basically the first family of Tex-Mex. That’s why, upon getting an invite to try Cuellar’s Fajita Ranch out in Plano, I brought out the fam and we got our fajita on.

Fajita-wise, for our table, the grilled chicken was clearly a winner, juicy and flavorful. I was also a fan of the wide choice of sides over the typical beans-and-rice offering on most Tex-Mex menus. I was able to get a salad to start and make sure my kiddos ate some broccoli, too.

Cuellar’s is all about classic Tex-Mex dishes, elevated a bit beyond the typical. They call it “Ranch-Mex:” ribeye fajitas, seafood enchiladas, and a humungous chicken fried steak are all going to be vying for your attention. Margaritas were large and typically strong.

Then there are the churros. You’re going to want to save a bit of room for those. They come simply-arranged like stems of flowers in a beer mug with a sweet little side of caramel. But damn, they’re good.
