Restaurant Review: Mi Dia From Scratch in Grapevine

The first time I visited Mi Dia From Scratch, I fell hard. I love the variety of Tex-Mex, Santa Fe-style, and regional Mexican dishes on the menu. I usually eat the same thing: the stacked enchiladas covered with cheesy red and green chile sauces and topped with a fried egg. Recently, I took my whole family to dinner at Mi Dia. While the kids played on The Pastoral Dreamer, a bronze sculpture by artist David L. Phelps in the courtyard, the adults ordered margaritas and chatted. Ordering was easy. Getting the drinks was not. It took 15 minutes for cocktails to arrive, and when they did, it turned out they were intended for the table next to ours. They were finally delivered with the food, which is not the worst thing if you are in a hurry, but I’d brought an out-of-town guest to catch up with old friends. Read on.

    This is my favorite Tex-Mex and one of my favorite Mexican spots in town. Have not tried the stacked enchiladas – last time I got the fajitas which were outstanding. The tableside guac is my favorite in town.

    some excellent stuff there, some not so excellent stuff. if they worked out the service kinks and improved a few of the misses on the menu it would be the best tex-mex in dallas.

    Have to agree with rvponders on the tableside guacamole, it is the best around and the beef fajitas are excellent. I will say, it is usually packed and allow an hour to get seated but well worth it. My wife says the jalapeno margarita is excellent. Will try the stacked next visit.

    No kidding. The last Saturday I was there, on my way out the hostess was announcing a 2+ hour wait!
