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

Stopped here while in town for the night since the family wanted a Mexican restaurant that served chips and salsa. This place did not disappoint. It was as expected, nothing more.

I have eaten here more than 50 times at least. I come for the Chile rellanos. I never bother with anything else. Ask for them burned. The are the best in the world period. They are better than in San Antonio, Better than in El Paso, Houston, Phoenix Vegas, California or Mexico. BTW the 2nd best are in 29 Palms,... More

I was on a business trip and stopped by for a quick meal around 6pm. I was seated quickly, had my order taken and was served a piping hot meal in minutes. I had barely started munching on my chips and salsa. I had the Enchilada Verdes and really enjoyed the chicken and the sauces. Great service. I look forward... More

Don't let the exterior fool you. If anything, the always-full parking lot should be a clear sign of what's inside. I almost don't want to tell you about this place because I don't want to make it any harder to find a table. But you deserve to know about it. The interior with its festive wall art, painted tables and... More

I had driven by El Paso for years. I ignored it because it doesn't look like much from the outside. We were craving Mexican food and had tried a few other places but were open to trying somewhere new. We had heard this place was great. We walked in and it was packed. The décor is festive. The only negative... More

I have Been going to El Paso Mexican Restaurant since I found it back in 2006. I am originally from Los Angels, Ca where the word Mexican Restaurant means something. To many times you run into Tex-Mex food. El Paso follows the TRUE tradition of Mexican favors in their food. If you want to know if the restaurant has great... More

The waitress was borderline rude and disappeared for lengthy periods of time. My burrito was covered in a watery tomato sauce (after being listed as having a queso sauce) and the sauce was heaped on so much that it looked like i had a plate of soup with a tortilla shell. Everything was awful and I will never eat here... More
