Great Tortillas!

The food was above average for Mexican restaurants. The servings were large and very tasty. Service was about average, but details were well appointed. Watch out for the salsa, a bit warm to taste.

From out of town and read good things about this place. Had a short wait which was good. Got margaritas which were very good. They bring you a small amount of chips and salsa. There aren't a lot of choices on the menu. The food was average and kinda pricey. Service wasn't the greatest but acceptable. Enjoyed the Mariachi band.... More

My place to go when in El Paso. Without a shadow of a doubt the best fajitas I've had and the margaritas are pretty good too. It's just unfortunate they don't allow you to have more than one jumbo

Food is okay. Nothing to rave about. Everybody talks about this restaurant but i'm giving it a 3-star review because I wasn't impressed with their food. The ambiance is nice though but it didn't make up for the food which is a little pricey. Service isn't that good either. You have to wait forever for somebody to get your order... More

Recommended by colleagues while travelling on business. Loved that the place had so many interesting things on the walls. The food was just what I was hoping for--Tex-Mex with lots of offers for combining dishes. Live music the night I was there--not too loud, played in the bar area, but could be heard throughout the restaurant.

Excellent food, excellent margaritas weekend nights they have live music... the only bad thing about weekend nights is that you have to wait 1 hr to be seated

Food is good. It's on the higher end of Mexican food prices. For anyone who wants a good margarita won't be disappointed here. Texas size on the rocks top shelf! Do not drive home after having one. Also best fried ice cream I've ever had! Cool place to come with friends or family. Does get very busy at night. Specially... More
