"It's The Real Deal" - D Magazine

The Cuellar family has been revolutionizing Mexican food in Texas since 1940, and El Corazon is┬ádedicated to serving what D Magazine calls “the real deal” to young and old for generations to come. We invite you to join us as we continue our family’s legacy of culinary traditions and culinary innovation.


El Corazon serves up hand-pressed tortillas made fresh every day, bigger-than-your-face quesadillas and tender sizzling fajitas that have become favorite staples of Tex-Mex cuisine. You’ll also find our Tacos Nortenos (named by Texas Monthly among the 120 tacos you must eat before you die), brisket quesadillas, veggiladas (and other vegan or vegetarian options), enchiladas, tortilla soup, churros and more. We honor tradition and yet always continue to innovate in the kitchen, so you’ll find newer favorites on the menu as well.


From our popular House Margaritas to our Perfect Patron, we offer a wide variety of margaritas. If you like margaritas, we know you’ll find a favorite here! Not a margarita fan? No problem. We offer domestic, craft and import beers, wine and other mixed drink options.

Come in for Happy Hour: Tuesday through Friday 2pm-7pm + all day on Saturdays. Salud!
