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.

The floors were dirty, bathrooms needed to be cleaned.... More

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.

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