where you can get good Mexican food. We got out of the car and the aroma wafted across the street and there was no question as to our decision on where to eat. We were not disappointed. The salsa was great too, plus the cabbage salsa included, I was hungry for veggies so they brought me extra cabbage salsa. Excellent... More

I am often in Blaine picking up packages and stop in at Paso Del Norte. I even time my pick up so I can grab lunch! Today will be my last. It wasn't as though I was sat or shoved into a corner, my table was visible and down the main walkway. I arrived today a couple minutes past 2... More

We have eaten at Paso Del Norte off and on for years. It's close, the food is OK and generally consistent. The last two times we have gone there, however, the service was appalling. You should not have to shout at a passing waiter to get someone to take your drink order. In two out of our last three visits... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for the last 4 years. We always have a great time and great food. They have this dish called Pollo con crema. It was wonderful like a macaroni and cheese but with chicken in this incredible sauce. YUM. It's casual and has a great view if you sit outside. Marissa was wonderful, attentive and... More

Food is very tasty, service can be slow if you arrive for a late lunch. But overall very good. I have been there two weekends in a row and will be going back again.

I went there on a Friday night at six pm, meeting a group of about twenty. The restaurant at that point wasn't crowded but it took awhile to get drink orders. There were chips, salsa, and some sort of onion/pepper dry salsa on the table to snack on. The chips weren't stale but I got the impression they weren't fresh... More

Cold Saturday so thought we'd warm up with a Mexican lunch . Chose this place based upon Tripadvisor reviews as well as others. Warm greeting, prompt seating. Drinks came quickly along with the Fajita plate and Enchalatas. Both very good and large portions. Won't go away hungry. Service was excellent , provided by both servers working the room. Bright ,...

Every time the hubs and I eat here we are pleased with our meals. From the authentic chips and pico de gallo starter to our main meals, we are never disappointed. Carlos even patiently puts up with us remedial Spanish speakers! A great place for large groups, including kids.

We enjoy dining at Paso Del Norte and just couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to comment on the great service from Carlos on our last visit. He did an excellent job and we enjoyed our dining experience even more because of him and wanted to be sure and thank him!
