Horrible service! I went in with my family and girlfriend when I was visiting El Paso. My sister is vegetarian and asked for her meals to have the meat substituted or remove. The meal came in with meat. We informed the server but told him she would just move the meat aside. They had two big groups (my family being... More

This is a great restaurant for a date or a family dinner. The food is truly delicious -starting from their appetizers - and prices are reasonable. I do recommend making reservations for Friday/Saturday nights since they are a small place and always full! I have also catered parties with them and the service was fantastic!

Loved this place and we got there earlier so we didn't have to wait but it is small so either make a reservation, go early or be prepared to wait. Plenty of options to choose from but the steaks are excellent. Large portions!

This restaurant might not be something you might think twice about from the outside, but it is amazing. I would suggest making a reservation since it is very limited seating. The food was wonderful and so full of flavor. The prices are very reasonable and major plus. The dessert was so rich and flavorful that there was none left. The... More

Doesn't get much better than this... true Argentinian food, served by an Argentinian family - the actual owner is the one taking your order (Mr. Leandro, one of the most attentive and professional restauranteurs I've ever met)! If you combine such an excellent meat-grilling style like the Argentinian one with some of the best beef in the world (Texas/Chihuahua), you... More

This beautiful little blue restaurant was such a pleasant find. It has such charm and ambiance, and an extensive, interesting menu. They offer many appealing (and filling) appetizers, soups, steaks, fish and huge salads, all with an Argentinian flair. Service was professional and courteous. The wine list includes Argentinian wine. The restaurant is popular and busy, even midweek. They have... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the United States. I enjoy trying local spots that are tucked away. I've been to El Paso three times for business and I've been to El Cuartito Azul each time. Their steaks are some of the best I've had even though they are prepared in such a simple way. They have several... More
