Tex Mex Combo Plate

We’ve long been huge fans of the culinary Cuellars, who helped transform North Texas’ Tex-Mex cuisine. (Oak Cliff’s El Corazon is always a fave.) Well, the family has a new idea coming to Plano: Fajita Ranch, which co-owner Gilbert Cuellar Jr. describes as “Ranch-Mex.”

What exactly is Ranch-Mex? Well, it’s less about innovation than traditional comfort food, Gilbert says. The menu will include “the most popular things I grew up enjoying as a child,” he says.He’s looking to “reflect on my family’s history and give guests the opportunity to dine on what my family considers traditional Texas Ranch-Mex cuisine.” That means chicken fried steak and enchiladas¬†and fajitas¬†and even mashed potatoes. Plus season margaritas. The exact opening date hasn’t been released, but will be “coming soon” they say to North Central Expressway and Parker Road in Plano.
