Each time we eat at El Paso we agree it is the best Mexican restaurant in the area. Tonight the steak el paso got high marks. Once again the chili rellenos were the best around. The tamales and enchiladas are authentic. Often too busy on Saturday nights, but never too noisy. The beers and cocktails are also first rate. The... More

If you're looking for a really nice place to enjoy great Mexican food at very reasonable rates, I recommend El Paso. The staff is wonderful and the food and beverages are fantastic. They are always adding to the dining experience and even have outside dining if you don't mind the traffic passing by but want to enjoy eating al fresco.

This restaurant is a local favorite. If you go on Sunday, early afternoon, expect to wait for a table; but it will be worth the wait. The staff is friendly and will answer your questions. There are lots and lots of choices. Their salsa was so good, chips were warm. Yum!!! Reasonable prices too.

This is not the same restaurant of my memories. When i lived in Va I would frequent this restaurant because of the truly excellent meals. The food was just barely warm, the salad was wilted and the burrito was just lain "Meh". I would not recommend this restaurant.

Great, quick service and good food! I asked for cheese enchiladas with cheddar cheese and the waitress said yes but I got white cheese, but they were still good with a nice red sauce, beans and rice for a reasonable price.

This restaurant is typical Mexican atmosphere. The workers were very friendly. Food was good. The only thing that bothered me was the sweeping the floors around me as I ate. I hate that. But many places do that. Sweeping stirs up dust from the floor. Also after each waiter/waitress finished the floor, they all took a seat around the table... More
