A great place for authentic Mexican cuisine. Good menu selection, reasonable prices, and good service. While not the best Mexican restaurant I have experienced, it certainly is in the upper 10-15%. Never been disappointed, and have tried a lot of the menu over the past few years. The wait staff is friendly, the ambience is very casual and the food... More

I've been going to Paso del Norte for years, primarily for their cheap lime margaritas but also because their meals were good and service was usually pretty good. Last week I returned to their "new" location (for a couple of years now, a much bigger place) hoping for a couple of margaritas and a plate of fajitas or their signature... More

The food was well presented and everything was tasty. We tried a variety of the Mexican dishes and we were pleased with all of them. The salsa and the avocado sauce appeared to be fresh and home made - and not too spicy. Service was pleasant. Good selection of draft beers.

I had the chicken quesadilla and my husband had a enchilada combo. The only thing edible on my plate was the chicken I scraped out of the rubbery cheese and the guacamole. Everything tasted like it had bed. reheated in a microwave. Perhaps they didn't prepare fresh food as it was the Labor Day holiday weekend. But our experience was... More

We miss the wonderful Mexican food we've had in the Mission SF, so when we cross the border we drop by here for a fix. I suppose it's not super authentic, but it tastes great, the servings are big, the staff are friendly and helpful with descriptions and allergen advice. Very family friendly in a good way.

Thank BCAussie
