The Cuartito has proposed in El Paso, and opened a branch on the east side. The west side continues to be a "hopping" place, and if you really want to be sure you can lunch or dine there, make a reservation - it is small...More

Small restaurant, dim lighting. Cozy. Ambiance relaxed. The outside does not give enough credit to the tasty food that awaits its patrons. Caponata appetizer, tasty (hint, remove the skin). Milenesa Napolitana was tasty. Recommend Grilled Chicken Pesto in Salsa Criolla; comes with 4 chicken breasts....More

The Cuartito's lunch special cannot be topped...an empanada, soup or salad, and an entree...Add a glass of malbec and you're good to go! Lighter appetites can enjoy an excellent sandwich. As the name suggests, it's a small place, about 30 seats, so it's advisable to...More

You go to El Cuartito Azul, and you're home. Not only do they treat you very well, the food is great! Additionally, if you go for lunch and take the special, it's the best in town: for the taste and for the excellent pricing.

There's nothing wrong about this small, cozy restaurant: food is delicious, attention is awesome, and the environment is as authentic as it gets! The owners (who are actually from Argentina) are very professional and attentive, and are always looking to provide the best for their...More

The Cuartito makes its full menu available mid-day, but the star of the show is the lunch special - $9.99 for a salad or soup, empanada, and Bife de Chorizo (NY strip) or Tira de Asado, a strip of ribs cut crosswise, both with decent...More
