"If you're in the mood for a quick alfresco bite of Mexican, you can't do better than a couple of tacos at La Ventana," says Dallas Morning News restaurant critic Leslie Brenner in a story called best bets for dining in downtown Dallas.

Take her advice: "Order them at the window and enjoy the funky patio. Beer and margaritas."

According to a spokeswoman, Taqueria La Ventana will open two new locations this year: in the Dallas Farmers Market and in Addison.

The farmers market location had been a buzzy topic when the other tenants were announced late last year.

The Addison shop will be located next to sister restaurant Snuffer's, on Belt Line Road. (More about Snuffer's here.) The Addison restaurant is expected to open May 11.

Taqueria La Ventata sells tacos, burritos, margaritas and beers.
