La Calle Doce - Lakewood
Since 1981 La Calle Doces has been serving the Dallas area delicious seafood and Tex-Mex made with the freshest ingredients. Signature dishes such as Pescado a la Parilla, Ceviche and Camaron a la Veracruzana have made such an impact that on August 6th, 1999 a second location was opened in Lakewood. Enjoy the rich culture of Coastal Mexico through our fresh and flavorful cuisine. Just 10 minutes from Downtown Dallas, we offer daily specials, friendly smiles, and a cozy atmosphere and traditional menu.
First of all, I believe that people like me bother to write a review because they feel compelled to share their experience with other people because of unusual experience, whether positive or negative. For the record, I myself own and operate a restaurant (not Texmex or Mexican food). As such, I believe that it is very important to be as fair, unbiased and accurate as possible when it comes to writing a review on restaurant experience.
In February of 2012, I went to this particular location (on Skillman Street) with my friend. Let me start off with positive experience. The server was friendly and attentive. The restroom was clean. The interior decor was pretty nice. On the flip side, after ordering exactly $39.80 dollars worth of appetizer, main entrees and one iced tea, we asked for some Cilantro. Then they charged me $1.25 for this. On the ticket, it showed up as Side Pico. This is just absolutely tacky and petty. Perhaps I can understand if we just ordered our meals very skimpily and they decided to charge. On top of that, the chopped cilantro was so dried up that their color was more like gray rather than green.
Ceviche was decently prepared and presented. Paella was very poorly prepared and presented. Interestingly enough, I noticed that another reviewer had the same opinion on Paella. Please see the review by Angela C. posted on 07/08/2009.
It was one of the worst (if not the worst) entrees I was served at any restaurants at this price point of $18.95 in my entire life. One clam, one mussel, two shrimps, a couple of chicken and pork pieces and a few tiny pieces of sausage on a mountain of yellow rice…. Actually, I am laughing now as I type this review wondering what may have gotten into the head of this restaurant owner who is seemingly so disconnected from the norm.
Had I not been with my special friend who was with me, at least, I would have inquired about this outrageous $1.25 charge for Cilantro. But, I chose not to in front of my special friend.
In summary, I will NEVER, EVER go back to this establishment even if a free meal is offered to me. They do not deserve a second chance from me because what went wrong is not a mistake, but it is a reflection of the management’s decision - charging you $1.25 for Cilantro and continuing to make the same bad dish for the last two and half years, at minimum (since 07/08/2009)
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A FRESH SEAFOOD RESTAURANT SINCE I MOVEDTO DALLAS. I FOUND ONE. THE FOOD IS GREAT, THEY SERVED TRADICIONAL SEAFOOD COCTAIL AND THE CALAMARI... WHEW... THEIR TOP SELF MARGARITA WAS ON TOP...I WILL DEFINATLY RECOMMEND THIS ONE..
If you're looking for authentic coastal mexican, this is a must-try. They have amazing calamari for appetizers--forget those little rings, these are nice long pieces of steak. Delicious and tender. Also, you can't go wrong with the delicious soups, cod seviche and chicken tortilla are amazing. Our fave dishes are the grilled red snapper and the sour cream chicken enchiladas. YUM!
La Calle Doce, known for its Mexican seafood dishes, is spectacular. Favorite dishes: Nachos de Jaiba, Sopa de Pescado, Paella (2 can split this), and Guiso de Res. You can't go wrong with any of their soups. Guacamole and salsa is also fresh and delicious. Top shelf Margaritas, Mexican Martinis, and Sangria are all standouts.
