Tex- Mex or Gringo- Mex
Not sure of the difference, but puts me in the vicinity anyway.
I grew up on El Fenix, and am looking for something similar in the area. I've tried Enchiladas y Mas, Maudie's and thought both were awful. From reading the boards I understand that Jorge's might be a good choice. If there is warm salsa and either pumpkin candy or pralines involved that would be a bonus.
You might try Camino Real up on 183 and El Azteca on E 7th. I agree re Maudie's. Have not tried Enchiladas y Mas, but had heard good things about it so am disappointed to hear your assessment.
I spent time in Dallas and liked those El Fenix enchiladas, as well as Ojeda's, and a dump off Inwood called Escondido.
Jorge's is about as close as you'll get here. some (very few) things at Manuel's might fit the bill

Have you tried El Gallo on South Congress? Another option might be El Patio on Guadalupe. Nice to see someone else on here who likes Gringo-Mex. :)
