That one star review by someone who loves the place is confusing, so I'll write one to make up for it.

To me El Fenix is the gold standard of Tex Mex, and I've never been to a bad one either considering the food or the service, so that means that each one is only to be preferred for its particular atmosphere.

What makes the Skillman El Fenix special to me is the unique architectural space. It's broken up into about four distinct spaces, but my favorite one is over to the left after you enter. There's a fairly large diorama with waterfalls and villages, a number of plantings and an excellent mural overlooking the scene. I'm probably making it sound bigger than it really is, but for me it makes the dining experience there that much more enjoyable.

I have eaten here several times with family and with co-workers during lunch. We especially enjoy the special during Wednesday lunch. Great atmosphere, very attentive waiters and waitresses. Will continue to go here again and again....

The food is always good, and the service is very fast. Sometimes the food almost comes too fast. It is above average quality Tex-Mex, and the fajitas are great. The decor is cool, and there is a adobe sculpture over a water fountain along one interior wall. The also have a small patio area. This place is family friendly, and consistently meets our expectations.
