“Always good eats, good value and a good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Since this place first opened in Juarez, Mexico it has been a good place to visit for the food and the ambiance. I was happy to see it opened several years ago on El Paso's west side. For some time the service and food quality had suffered greatly but I must say that for the last couple of years it has improved significantly. It is a place I visit often for breakfast lunch or dinner. Good Mexican food and ambiance.

“Really lively atmosphere with good service and Mexican fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Very large and appealing selection of Mexican items, as this is the US branch of the owner's original restaurant across the river in Juarez. My Tampiqueno platter was delicious, except the steak was underdone and had to be sent back for further cooking. My friend's soup also had to be sent back to be heated more. My steak,although delicious, was somewhat tough. All the side dishes were absolutely delicious. Best to reserve on weekends.

“Great Mexican food, with a bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Everything is good, but go for breakfast and have some fresh squeezed orange juice. Everything is good and the service and atmosphere is top notch.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

We had enjoyed several memorable dinners at this restaurant and had looked forward to another on our way through El Paso. On this occasion, we felt very rushed through dinner and our meals were extremely disappointing. The dishes we always order were too spicy to eat. Regrettably, it is very unlikely that we will return to this restaurant.

“Much better options available in El Paso”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

There were 7 of us for a nice family breakfast and we were disappointed with the menu variety and lackluster service. There was one waiter that got mad because we couldn't decide on whether we wanted green or red chili. He was upset because he couldn't tell us what was included in the meal. The food needed flavor. It was very bland. I would not go back nor would I suggest this restaurant when there are multiple places in the city with delicious and cheap food. This food had no flavor and was overpriced.
