The place, overdecoreted as most Mexican restaurants, and the music (not too loud) make the ambiance. The personnel (along with Tequilas and some other drinks) make you feel relaxed and get into the mood. Some of the waitressess are not that skilled, but everyone is nice and service is ok after all. Most of all, the food of the Buffet... More

Seems like Mexico is fare away! Food is fat and adopted to Brasilia. To much fried food whichbis expensive. The price for the buffet is oj but the food is not always fresh. Watch and pick the nice stuff but the selection is small. Prefer to eat lical food!

Visited on November 15th, 2013 I went to El Paso with my cousins on a Friday night. I was in Brasilia for a national holiday. Although very late and the restaurant was full, the hostess was able to sit us promptly. Service was friendly, polite and prompt. The place is lively decorated and the atmosphere is great!

I've seen a lot of reviews saying how bad the food is, it's not Mexican, authentic or what ever. Fact is this restaurant is the best Mexican type in all of DF. Having lived here for over a year believe me when I say you would be begging for 'El paso Texas' after trying some of the other tex-mex /... More

The food is good, service and atmosphere are great, but the price, especially for drinks, is absurd. Five reais (R$4,50, plus 10% mandatory "tip", R$4,95) for a 300ml bottle of water?? The same 300ml São Lourenço bottle that is sold by less than R$1 at the supermarket in front, and from R$2 to R$3,50 in every other fancy restaurant in... More

If you are visiting Brasilia don't waste your time at this restaurant. It is a pale imitation of the food and the decor is overdone. If you live in Brasilia and you want something a bit different for some reason, by all means give it a try. My only lasting impression was the heartburn.

I love the new unit at SQN 110! I had self service and really recommend it! Food is very fresh, even at evening. Some plates are prepared right there, in front of you. There are many plates and fantastic sauces. Environment is informal and funny. Staff is gentle and willing to help all the time.

A bad caricature of Mexican or Tex Mex food. If you've ever had Mexican food, stay away. The cooks at this place evidently have only seen the pictures online. Not even close!

El Paso is admittedly Brasilia's best attempt at a Mexican restaurant. However, if you're accustomed to Mexican restaurants in the US or Mexico, this place is not good. The atmosphere is traditional and cheesy and menu selection is good. The food is not authentic and not really worth it (we had the buffet).

I was not expcting much from El PAso Texas when we arrived, but we were pleasantly surprised. The service was attentive, the drink delicious and the food ...good. The kids loved the decor and atmosphere. It is definetly a good place to go if you a craving some Mexican Food and Drinks. I can drecommend it without hesitation.
