Came here several times for the buffet. Lot's of choices. I liked it because I missed Mexican food. Enjoyed it and will be back for more!

I love ceviche and when want to eat it I come here, they have all the other traditional stuff too (guacamole, tacos, quesadillas, etc). The space is totally decorated with the mexican theme, the staff is kind and during the week they have a nice buffet option. Not the cheapest mexican, not the most expensive also.

El Paso serves an all-you-can-eat tex-mex buffet at lunch which is quite good and not too expensive. The place is colorful and kitsch as tex-mex places usually are (at least in Brazil) and not so big, but when we went there there (quite late for lunch) there were plenty of available tables. There could be a bit more diversity in... More

The people serving us were very kind. A person saw that the table was wobbling so they took the time to try to fix it without us having to say anything. My meal, as always in this restaurant, was amazing. The days they have buffets are the best because you can eat all you want and their variety is quite... More

First of all, let us not compare this restaurant with a real Mexican restaurant in Mexico, or with a Tex-Mex in the US. El Paso Texas is a great local restaurant of Tex-Mex inspiration, and that´s it. I am reviewing the original place, at 404 sul, although they have two other locations, in Asa Norte and in a shopping mall.... More

We all had the buffet which was great and good value offering a lot of fresh options. We washed it down with margaritas. The restaurant is very cool and has a lot of detail - very colourful.

The place, overdecoreted as most Mexican restaurants, and the music (not too loud) make the ambiance. The personnel (along with Tequilas and some other drinks) make you feel relaxed and get into the mood. Some of the waitressess are not that skilled, but everyone is nice and service is ok after all. Most of all, the food of the Buffet... More

Seems like Mexico is fare away! Food is fat and adopted to Brasilia. To much fried food whichbis expensive. The price for the buffet is oj but the food is not always fresh. Watch and pick the nice stuff but the selection is small. Prefer to eat lical food!

Visited on November 15th, 2013 I went to El Paso with my cousins on a Friday night. I was in Brasilia for a national holiday. Although very late and the restaurant was full, the hostess was able to sit us promptly. Service was friendly, polite and prompt. The place is lively decorated and the atmosphere is great! One thing to... More
