Tortilla Soup restaurant...

Someone told me about a really great Mexican restaurant called Tortilla Soup...It is located in Dallas in a shopping center at Campbell and Preston...He said that it was better than Luna Da Noche and much cheaper as well...Anyone been? Any good?

    Never been to that restaurant, but if it's tortilla soup you're after, you might try "Michael's" in FW.

    I think it's called "Michael's Ancho Chile Bar" and it's a very nice restaurant with an attached bar just off of 7th Street. Once you get past the enormous ego of the owner, you will find what I think is the most unique Tortilla Soup in the southwest. I usually try the soup at any new restaurant I go to, but this one is worth trying. The bowl is served with the chicken, tortillas, chiles, etc in a dry dish, but then the broth is poured over the top. It is a deep, spicy brownish-red and is wonderful. Virtually everyone who has eaten or drank at this meat market agrees that they had to try the soup at least once.

    Worth a try, I think. Good luck.

      Been there a few times. Solid food, generous portions, excellent value, very friendly service. Looks like mom & pop operation. Was quiet the few times we've been, hope heir business picks up.

        I agree the food is good. The menu/food/prices are very, very similar to Mi Cocina. I was told the owner is a former employee. It is pretty much a Mi Cocina clone without the Mi Cocina atmosphere. It is a typical suburban shopping center space. Personally, I thought the prices were too high for what it is. I think that they either need to do something unique or be a better value than Mi Cocina to draw customers.
