Authentic food

We enjoyed the food and service so much we brought the rest of the family back for another meal. They were generous with the chips and salsa and we all loved the fried ice cream.

We have eaten at El Paso, and the food and service were good. On our most recent visit we had our 5-pound Maltese lap-dog with us, and were told we could not eat on the patio. No reason was given, but we know from prior attempts at El Paso and Ciro's that it is the owner who thinks people don't... More

Stopped on our travels for a wonderful meal...the service was above average. Meals specifically made to our specifications. When nothing else was open on Easter - Margaritas were welcomed!

This is definitely a favorite restaurant when our family is in the mood for Mexican cuisine. Located in the very small town of Elkton, you might not expect much from such a quaint location. You would certainly be mistaken, as El Paso hits the mark perfectly. You will be greeted warmly and seated in one of their ample dining areas.... More

After reading the reviews on yelp, I was expecting a lot from the El Paso Mexican Grill. It is nicely decorated, serves up a cold draft beer, but the food was no different than any other Mexican restaurant I have been to in Virginia. Same old, same old. Good and tasty but not exceptional.

We ate here with two kids looking for a quick local place to eat. My wife enjoyed the large blue margarita drink special. We were happy with the food and service. It's very typical low cost Mexican. Not very authentic nor original, lots of sauce and sour cream, typical canned menu, yet good. It hit the spot and no one... More

Today was the 3rd time we have ate here and again the food and service was great. We aren't experts on Mexican food but we do eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants everywhere we travel and my wife and I agree this one is the best by far.
