Herrera's in Dallas - better food at Denton Dr. or Maple Ave these days?

jimmysspecial | Nov 13, 200811:19 AM     2

It's been a year since I've been to either ... but back then, the Maple Ave. Herrera's was superior food to the other, closeby Herrera's known in my circle as "The Barn," over on Denton Drive cutoff. Is that still the case? (I've heard by word-of-mouth that things have switched up and that Denton Dr. may be better now ... hm, where to go?)

Recipes and menu are virtually identical either place, but back then the Maple Ave. food was just fresher and a little better done than Denton Drive. ... Denton Drive was nothing to sneeze at, though.

I understand that these two restaurants are owned or at least run separately, by cousins in the Herrera family, so this could account for the difference....

Appreciate replies ... friends coming into town and I want to show off the best Tex-Mex ... oh yeah we'll go to Escondido too if we can work around its short hours ...
