Mico Rodriguez is somewhat of a restaurant legend in Dallas. It seems he is always opening a new establishment that becomes wildly successful and the new go-to spot. His latest venture, Mesero in Inwood Village, is a new concept, not to be confused with being a second Mr. Mesero or a second Mesero Miguel. The menu combines elements of both but with a few new additions, and it is clearly a different third restaurant for Mico.

In a slot amongst shops in the retail zone of Inwood Village, Mesero looks like it would be small and nothing special. But the one large dining room is quite expansive, extending back farther than expected with a very open and comfortable feel. The beautiful kitchen and bar line the left wall, tables welcome you in the middle of the room, and teal booths line the right wall under exposed stained wood. The large glass windows in the front of the restaurant slide open to fool you into thinking you are sitting on a lovely patio.

It is decorated simply, almost with an industrial feel, using tones of brown with pops of teal. The menu is large with plenty of options, including the classic guacamole or queso, tacos, enchiladas, or American fare like a burger or half-chicken.

Margaritas are of course on the menu, and Mesero makes a strong one, sure to please the most finicky drinkers. The guacamole served at any of the Mesero restaurants is sure to be delicious. Creamy avocado with different levels of spice comes with large, crispy tortilla chips, and three salsa options. Our waiter recommended the Carne Asada, Ensalada "A", the Rose Burger, and the Pastel Azteca. We tried the Pastel Azteca to venture into something different, and it didn’t disappoint. Soft corn tortillas were stacked with chicken coated in a tomato sauce, creating layers of flat tacos and topped with a tomatillo sauce. It was unique and delicious.

Brisket Taco and Cheese Enchilada

The more traditional Tex-Mex options like the Cheese Enchilada and Brisket Taco were excellent as well. The cheese enchilada had just the right amount of cheese and sauce, without being overly soupy or greasy. The brisket taco is served with their famous Mesero Slaw, which has a delicious acidic flavor that would probably make any taco taste great.

Mesero is a new neighborhood restaurant that will likely become a trendy hot spot in Dallas for the Park Cities and Preston Hollow families. It is casual enough for a quick Mexican dinner on a weeknight, and it is trendy enough for young adults to stop here for dinner on Friday before they hit Uptown. Mesero restaurants seem to always hit the mark and satisfy their customers, and this new one is no exception.
