Dallas has more than enough Tex-Mex, and that makes this Oak Cliff fine-dining mom-and-pop authentic Mexican restaurant all the more special. Here, you get Raul and Olga Reyes' carefully crafted Mexican cuisine, with everything made from scratch, plus doting white-tablecloth service and a serene, artful atmosphere. Mesa has received numerous accolades and has plans to open a second branch in Grapevine in the fall. Be sure to order enmoladas — nubby corn tortillas drizzled with house-made mole — and the cocktail made with rum and a house-made horchata.
