Outside Seating Great! – We were new in town and heard from a local, Tinman was his name! He said come try this restaurant/bar out. So we did, and let me say I was very impressed. The crowd was totally my age group, lots of hot guys and girls! The staff was great, very friendly. The food was awesome, I ordered fajitas (beef) great! And the chips and salsa was to die for. We sat outside, and boy was this place a hip and moving joint. People of all kinds were coming and going. I loved it. I'm gonna go back on a Tuesday so I can do the margarita night! Thanks again to Tinman for recommending it to us!
Love the Margaritas! – OMG, you have got to go to this location on Tuesday nights! They have cheap margaritas with great taste! I love the atmosphere outside. Talk about high class people coming and going! I even saw a semi-famous newsman there, Steve Eager. Awesome! I definitely recommend this place to my friends. The food is wonderful, and they are fast! Ernie, I think was his name, he rocks!
best sk8ter – i have seen this resteraunt and its just that the food is awful! i like taco bell better than this, i agree with the comment that i just read 5 seconds ago! xp
Great patio, Great location.... only thing missing is the food – I have been to Primo's 4 times, being forced to eat there because of my co-workers. The only reason this place is still open is because it has a tremendous location, along with a great patio, and one of the few reasonably priced mexican options in Uptown. Every meal I have gotten has been mediocre, and not near deserving of the price. The enchiladas are atrocious, the rice is overcooked and tasteless, and the refried beans are similar to what the bums under the Woodall Rogers freeway are dining on.
Unexpected pleasant surprise – My boyfriend and I are both from New York, so of course when the Giants were playing against the Packers in the NFC title championship game, we wanted to watch the game at a great place so he picked Frankie's Bar and Grill. We figured since it wasnt the Cowboys playing, there wouldnt be a problem getting a table with good TV viewing seats. Well we were wrong. I guess everyone had the same idea or they all had converted to NY Gaints fans. Needlless to say the place was packed. You could barely make it through the door nonetheless get to the bar, I didnt even bother wasting a wish on getting a table to feed my straving stomach. After, 5 mins of scoping the place out, we left. Walked down the block and found Primo's! My priority at that time was to get some food; his was to be seated before kickoff. Primo's at that moment offered a solution to both our problems.The place was busy and buslting. Surprisingly, we only waited less then 10 minute for seating and was seated in the patio that had a big screen TV. Primo's was a great stumble find. Overall, we enjoyed watching the game there. The sevice was good and the atmosphere was great(even though we were surrounded by mostly Packer's fans). The flavorfull and tastey food came as a surprise since the place had such a sports bar feel. I loved the fish tacos!!! We ordered the flan for dessert but was not impressed but the icing on our cake was having the Gaints win. So we ate and had a win too!!!
Good Mexican Food – Reasonably priced. GREAT location. Truly a good place to hang out -- lunch or dinner. I've been going to Primo's since I moved to Dallas in2002.
Uptown meets border town at this lively Mexican food spot and watering hole. – In Short
The atmosphere is cantina-like, with small, square white cloth-draped wooden tables, whirling ceiling fans, open patio and long bar. For starters, the botanas platter contains a mix of nachos, flautas, quesadillas, mini-tacos and stuffed jalapeños. The menu is divided into Tex-Mex dishes--a variety of enchiladas, tamales, chilies rellenos--and a "From the Grill" section, offering fajitas and other mesquite-grilled specialties. The finishing touch: sopapillas or flan.
Good tex-mex lunch – Good place for a tex-mex lunch. I've always had good service here. Great outdoor patio. Fun for a happy hour margarita, too.
