Dallas’s dearly missed Primo’s Tex Mex will make a comeback next month at its original Uptown location.
Primo’s Tex Mex closed in 2013 after a 28-year run in the Big D. The reborn restaurant, now called Primo’s MX Kitchen & Lounge, is scheduled to debut on Friday, February 7, at its O.G. address (3309 McKinney Avenue).
The lengthy lineup draws from cuisines lining the Texas border to the southernmost part of Mexico. There’s a dozen apps to start ($7.95-$16.95), including queso, guacamole, a dip built with chili-spiced beef, avocado, pico de gallo and crema, loaded nachos, and carne asada fries. Other traditional starters include chicken tortilla soup and a taco bowl.
Tex-Mex favorites accompanied by Spanish or cilantro brown rice and black beans include four types of enchiladas ($12.95) and a Primo burrito ($13.95) stuffed with a choice of asada, chicken, pork belly, or Impossible meat. Those proteins also star in tacos.
The priciest order on the menu is a guajillo chili-dusted beef tenderloin ($32.95), with ranchero Brussels sprouts, crispy potatoes, and a wild mushroom-poblano demi-glace.
Weekday lunch combos ($11.99) let customers curate a meal from core offerings like nachos, enchiladas, salads, soups, and tacos. There’s also late-night specials in the mix. Sweet finales include tres leches cake, chocolate flan, pineapple upside-down cake, and crème brûlée churros.
President and CEO of Centurion American Development Group Mehrdad Moayedi is behind the Tex-Mex reboot.
