Stopped by, on the way out of the El Paso airport off of I-10, based on the reviews. I had the enchilada combo and my guest had the beef tacos. Lunch crowd was light and service was relatively slow. Food was ok - no better than your typical strip-mall Tex-mex joint.

We decided to try this out due to the Trip Advisor rating and to be honest, it did not live up to the reputation. My wife is from El Paso and we were looking forward to some really great Mexican food driving back home from Arizona. We ate at Carlos & Mickey's last trip through and that was excellent. This...

Absolutely delicious- mole best ever experienced, queso a family favorite, enchiladas with red sauce flavorful and not too spicy but still a wee kick - definitely would stop here again and try to eat in as the margaritas looked worth a try too!

Amazing food and atmosphere. We loved this spot we found. Had great food and to top it all off there was this amazing card that sat on every table in the restaurant.

The food was very good but not great. We got a sampler for appetizer and it was very good as were our entrees. Decor was nice with an almost Moroccan feel to it. Our waiter was very good and took good care of us. The margaritas were excellent. My only complaint, honestly and this may be a plus for some... More

I had the Corona Special, 3 chicken enchiladas, covered in red mole. The Mole was perfect. sweet and just the right amount of spice. Chicken was good. The beans were spot on. rice was included as well. only weak item was the sweet rice milk. lacked flavor. Plenty of parking. very good service.

Very good choice as selected by locals. Everyone one in group was pleased with selections. As I recall we had the chicken mole, steak tampiqiena ( very tender), cheese enchilada and salads including the large spinach ... Which was big enough for sharing. Of course, margaritas. Our waiter Christian was friendly and helpful.

Had dinner here with coworkers. Both food and service were very good. The chicken tacos were very tasty as was the coconut ice tea. The decor is very pleasing and the atmosphere is comfortable. Will definitely go back.
