The Original Mexican Eats Café

The Original Mexican Eats Café

Original Mexican Eats Cafe was opened in 1926 by the Pineda family. The Original is Fort Worth’s oldest restaurant, having served five generations. Countless first meals, first dates, engagements, and parties have taken place here, and we look forward to continuing the tradition. The Original uses the best, freshest ingredients to make the best tex-mex possible. During the 1930’s, Franklin D. Roosevelt came to Fort Worth various times to visit his son Elliot, who lived in this area. They frequented the Original Restaurant where, in 1936, the “Roosevelt Special” was created in honor of the President’s favorite meal. The Roosevelt Special remains the Original’s signature dish today.

New Location: The Original del Norte

We have moved to a new location, The Original del Norte, open Tuesday-Sunday at 1400 N Main St in Fort Worth, TX!
