Monica’s Aca y Alla

12 Jul


If you know anything about me, you know that my two greatest loves (right now) are drinking and Mexican food. When it comes to Dallas scenes, one of my faves is Deep Ellum. The venues are always cool, affordable and tasty, and it just so happens that one of the coolest, tastiest Mexican restaurants I’ve visited in Dallas is there – Monica’s Aca y Alla.

During the week, you’ll find some pretty sweet happy hour specials, including half-price food (select items) on Tuesdays and 75-cent margaritas on Wednesdays. There aren’t many places where you can actually taste the tequila in a margarita for less than a buck. Very impressive. The food’s just as good! I’ve been more than once with full intention of ordering the Mexican Lasagna – corn tortillas layered with all sorts of Mexi-goodies – but I’ve never had anything that didn’t exceed my expectations.

If dips are more important to you, I have it on good authority that the queso is worth every penny, and I must say I agree. I can be pretty picky when it comes to hot sauce (That’s what I call “salsa”), but Monica’s is A-okay.

On weekends, things can get spicy. Live bands dancing keep it lively, and the inevitable Conga line always ends with a shot of tequila straight from the bottle for all those on board. And if you’re regretting it in the morning, I hear the brunch is to-die-for. I haven’t had the chance to try it just yet, but have you ever had a bad brunch? Didn’t think so.

You can connect with Monica’s on Twitter or Facebook.
