Travel to a jungle oasis with Texas-sized tacos from a Food Network champion, 24k gold margs, and all the Tulum vibes! Dallas’ newest hotspot, La Neta Cocina Y Lounge, is now open for the perfect date night or GNO!
Updated February 2023
La Neta is a spot that’ll make you feel like you’re on a tropical getaway with both a restaurant and lounge! Not only is it a stunning space, but also features an amazing menu with locally sourced ingredients. They're open for dinner and stay open late, making it a great one-stop place for nightlife. They have an extensive tequila and mezcal program to complement any evening out on the town!
From the huge tree inside the bar, to the art installations & sparkling chandeliers, this expansive space is truly alive both day and night! Explore the cocktail lounge centered around a gorgeous pink & orange stained glass wall, or the dining room with blue booths, pink lights & vivid geometric paintings. If you’re celebrating something special, the private dining room is super intimate with a chandelier.
We truly felt like we were on a night out in Tulum, from the music to the decor!
We had the chance to stop by and check out the space, food, and drinks! Check out our video above to see the vibes.
Curated by Food Network ‘Chopped’ champion, the menu features over-the-top Mexican inspired dishes with a Vegas flair, in Texan sized portions! Highlights of the menu include the BFTs & BFDs - big f***ing tacos and desserts! Fresh ingredients are brought in daily, including locally sourced Waygu! The seafood is also amazing, we couldn’t get enough of the ceviche. There’s something for everyone from small bites to salads, soups, and more!

🍹 Whata Prickly
La Neta’s original location is in Las Vegas, and the Dallas location is their secnd! We love our Tex-Mex, but this is something totally different! They really did their research on what Dallasites like when creating the menu, like supporting local farmers for their ingredients. We had an amazing experience & can’t wait for you to try!
Find La Neta at The Epic, a new development next to The Pittman Hotel. It’s home to one of our favorites, Harper's Steakhouse. Plus, you can explore exciting additions coming later this year, including Komodo & Chloe's Newsstand.
