    I had been a loyal customer of La Jaivita for so many years. I truly appreciate the effort of the personnel that are providing curbside services. La Jaivita food has the same great flavor of my grandmother cooking. I buy lunch there many times a month. Everyone is so helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant as the best Mexican Seafood Restaurant in Dallas, a hidden diamond. ~ Esther A.

  • Addict to La Jaivita sauce

    I cannot get enough of the chips and salsa..... never eat whole meal...too full of chips and salsa...always get some to go. I had been visiting La Jaivita since early 1990 and I drive from South Dallas to Harry Hines Blvd just to go eat there. My favorite place to eat in Dallas. ~ Laura S

  • My Childhood Food

    We came here and met up with friends for one’s birthday was being celebrated! Our waiter was the greatest and I immediately ordered a water and a really serious margarita! The food ordered took me to my childhood in Mexico, the flavor was so authentic Mexican Seafood, I was surprise about the “Huchinango” options. So much fun and so much laughter! Definitely worth it on a Saturday afternoon! ~ Luis F
