The food was delicious!! The service... Not so good. First, my fiance and I walked in and sat down. Then a larger family walked in and sat down around 5 minutes after we sat down. The waitress took down the larger family's order before she took our order. I asked her why, and she said that they were ready to order so she took their order first. We were actually ready with our order when that family first sat down but the waitress didn't know this because she didn't bother to ask if we were ready. Then when our food came out, she forgot about my drink and I had to ask her where it was. I ordered agua de melon and didn't end up getting it because she had served the bigger family the last bit of it, and because she took our order after them AND forgot about my drink, I didn't get my drink that I wanted.THEN when we were done, the menu said the pambazo is $5.99 but we were charged $6.99. my fiance ordered a torta de milanesa and the waitress messed up his order and brought him a fajita torta. Because he ate it without realizing that it was the wrong torta, we were then charged for the fajita torta even though he wanted the milanesa torta and we didn't realize it was the wrong order.TL;DR The menu prices are wrong and the waitress is incompetent.
Every time my husb and I come here, which has been for the last 15yrs or so, the food is great! You have choices from soups, tortas, all kinds of tacos, gordita, sopas, enchiladas and more. The flavor of the pastor, carnitas and the rest have great flavor. The tables are usually clean & ready to sit at. The service is best on Sat. But we come for the food. It may be a little convenient store with a butcher but it has great authentic Mexican food.
El Primo is the restaurant that actually got me into authentic Mexican food. since then, I have been to just about every Taqueria in DFW and I can still say the El Primo is the best I have had yet. The tacos are phenomenal, the enchiladas are crazy good, and everything else is delicious. I'm hate that I moved away because I used to go here several times a week. lol
