Owner, Raphael Carreon, opened the original Raphael’s restaurants in 1975 and Rafa’s Cafe in 1994. Raphael’s has been an institution in Dallas and in the Metroplex area ever since. Rafa’s –the sister to Raphael’s–continues the same Mexican family traditions, providing great Tex-Mex and Mexican specialty dishes. The menu ranges from popular nachos or fajitas to the exotic shrimp enchiladas or snapper a la Feliz. Rafa’s also has a wide selection of carb-friendly items including choices of chicken, fish or vegetable dishes.
Come enjoy our full bar menu including Mexican and domestic beers, a variety of wine and super margaritas (try our house special, the fresh lime margarita). And the TV’s in the bar are always tuned into sports.
Our dining rooms feature cozy, bright and festive colors, with the feel of a tropical cafe. Rafa’s Cafe is family oriented and child-friendly with a relaxed and casual atmosphere where you will feel at home.
