The first time I visited Enchiladas Olé (901 N. Sylvania Ave.), a semi-new Tex-Mex place on the East Side, my server came on a little strong — and by strong I mean he practically tried to convince my guest and me to upgrade our lunch experience with leather upholstery and an extended warranty. And he wouldn’t leave us alone either. It was kind of like having a giant Labrador constantly trying to jump up on your lap. The food was OK, but not that great.
Then I started hearing a lot of good things about the place, including from Fort Worth Weekly’s own Jimmy Fowler. I returned last week to give the café another shot.
A guest — the same fella I took on my previous outing — and I showed up to the strip mall eatery around noon. The tiny dining room was packed, but we were able to get a table. The shyster server was there, though he was much calmer than on my first visit. In fact he was pleasant. Maybe he took his meds — or stopped taking his meds. This time the service was fast and friendly.
