Great food and service

Everybody in our group of 9 people enjoyed what they ordered. service was a little slow, but it was a Friday night, we had a big group and they was busy (always a good sign to be busy). Will return!!!

The restaurant only had three other groups of diners while we were eating but only one waitress was working. I expected slow service but she was very quick and attentive. We were never waiting for refills or service. She was quick and efficient at all tables. As for the food, it is easily the best Mexican food I have had... More

Went with wife and step daughter for a nice night out. Was not aware it would take the majority of the evening. Normally you are given a bowl of chips and salsa which is basically to tide you over till the food arrives. Service was so slow, we went through 4 bowls of chip. The wait time was extreme. There...

I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and plenty of room between tables which is helpful with two toddlers . I ordered a margarita that was on a special. It was pretty comparable to other restaurants and didn't that over powering lime juice that tends to make my teeth sore. Salsa and cheese dip is what you expect ( not... More

We have been going to El Paisano for 5 years....love it. Food is awesome, if you like real mexican food. Not unusual for us to go 2 or 3 times a week. Love the waitresses. ....all very friendly.

This is my second favorite restaurant in Arnold! Lots of TV's and Margaritas! The food is pretty good as well. This is not Chevy's so don't expect an American/Mexican restaurant. This is a very popular location for good reason and recommend it to all of my friends.

I'm surprised by the bad reviews I live here and by far this is the best Mexican in town and I've been to Mexico and ate Mexican there.

Not much to say. The bartender was also the server. Was busy making drinks and was not worried about our table. The food was tasteless. Sloppy beans, lettuce was not anywhere fresh, quesadilla had hardly any meat. Never got offered a refill on our drinks until after we were done eating. The floors were dirty, bathrooms needed to be cleaned.... More

The server was good, but that was the only thing worthwhile at El Paisano. The meat in the burrito (boiled ground beef) had absolutely no flavor--no cumin, no garlic, no onion, nothing, and it was wrapped in a very thick tortilla. The chile pablano would have been good if it wasn't wrapped in an inch-thick batter and smothered in a... More

Great food and service, the kind you can only get at a small, family owned restaurant!
