After a 9 hour ride in the car, this was an awesome place for dinner. Excellent margaritas, a hot salsa, warm tostadas , shrimp chile rellenos and a combo special were just what the doctor ordered. Welcoming staff was much appreciated.

The bar area in very cozy and comfortable. The mixologists behind the bar are outstanding. You must try the XL Margarita with some chips and salsa or better yet the Chile con Queso. I've tried most things on the menu and have never been dissatisfied. It is definitely a must visit if you come to El Paso.

Great Mexican food, great family atmosphere, excellent service. Their Mexican combination plate is excellent, with sopapillas and Honey. Lots of fort Bliss History in pictures that decorate the restaurant walls. A very popular eating destination in El Paso.

Food and atmosphere are reminders of the "Old" days in Juarez. The service is impeccable and the food is spot on.

This family owned restaurant has become an established favorite for locals as well as visitors and the ambiance is perfect for a party or for a romantic dinner. The Mexican food is traditional, the veggie chimichangas are... More

To me, this place is just ok. If you want an all around atmosphere (couples, families, live music), this is a good place. But if you want Mexican food, head to LJ's or even Taco Tote. C & M have a good variety of margaritas, so if you want that, this is a good place also. If I could only... More
