Indulge in Mexican dishes in an elevated setting at Hugo's! We ordered a variety of plates to try it all but highly recommend the prickly pear Texas red snapper ceviche. The ceviche fresco is also amazing, and it's made with striped bass, paired with mango and avocado! As a bonus, their tortilla chips are baked, never fried!

Jose on Lovers

This lively spot has a colorful and vibrant patio with a beautiful fountain in the center! You’ll feel like you’re dining in a Spanish hacienda courtyard at Jose. Enjoy unique ceviches like a mahi mahi or a coconut ceviche made with mango and coconut milk and take in the stunning views! We recommend making a reservation but if not they're so worth the wait.

La Comida is a family-owned Mexican restaurant that began in Addison and has since reopened in Oak Cliff - we love a revival story! Enjoy a shrimp ceviche or their tropical ceviche that comes with mahi, shrimp, mango, pineapple, cucumber, and avocado marinated in their secret sauce. Their tequila cocktails are also incredible and should def be enjoyed on their large patio!
