Mexico Real is owned by Joaquin and Martha Miranda, who were both born in Mexico before moving to the Fort Worth area as children. Their binational upbringing inspired the eatery’s menu, which combines authentic dishes from Mexico’s central region with classic Tex-Mex offerings such as beef fajitas, chimichangas, and combination platters. Adults can enjoy margaritas squeezed fresh from the cactus as they dig into plates piled high with chili-covered pork tamales or chef’s enchiladas stuffed with shredded chicken, mushrooms, and spinach, and a kids' menu sates pintsized appetites with beef or chicken tacos and mac 'n' cheese.
