“Expected more.”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Had a meal here today with my Family, heard so much about this restaurant i had to try it. We were served promptly i ordered a seafood chowder which was awful instead of fresh fish it consisted of fish sticks and and herbs and was luke warm. i ordered enchilados which tasted like they were frozen and heated up finally we ordered sangria which didnt seem to taste of any alcohol at all. Nice staff nice surroundings but dont think i will be back soon

Thank You for the review.. Pity we are closed now after 20 years

You might be interested, Because of demand and great support and 20 years tried and tested sauces loved by our customers. We are launching a range of sauces from our restaurant soon Keep an eye out for us on Facebook. Will be in some small outlets first and plan to be on the shelves of Supervalu in Jan 2017

First range of sauces will be ... Fajita sauce..... Wing Sauces 1. El Paso Wing Sauce ( Buffallo) Mild 2. Chipotle Wing Sauce (Smokey) Medium 3. Habanero Wing Sauce ( VERY HOT) Mental

“Margaritas & Fajitas - fun restaurant”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

El Paso overlooks the bay in Howth and serves typical Mexican food and Sangria & Margaritas. There is also a fully stocked bar. It is very reasonably priced and the service is excellent. The restaurant is cosy and atmospheric with lively Mexican music in the background. Great place for for a fun night out with friends.

“Great to see Elpaso Back - slightly disappointing service though.”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Myself & my Boyfriend went here recently - We were delighted to see ElPaso back as it has great memories for us. When we arrived we were seated. It was quiet busy with 2 floor staff on. Our order was taken by a really friendly girl - We weren't offered drinks until 10minutes later. When our order came out - They forgot 2 of our sides which we didn't bother asking for as they just seemed too busy to tend to us. The food itself was lovely - I really enjoyed mine (Chicken Fajitias) and my boyfriend got enchiladas - He said the portion of filling was quiet small. All in all we would go back just hopefully at a better time.

“Wont be back”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Went here on a Thursday night at 6.30pm. Was offered a small table inside the door & when we said no its ok we were offered a booth for 4 people. The waitress said she needed the table back at 7.30 and we said fine. Had chicken wings & chimichanga for starters which were fine. I ordered beef fajitas and she came with chicken which was changed promptly enough. They were just like stir fried meat & peppers. Another friendly waitress who said it was her first night asked if we wanted desserts or coffee. We asked if we had time as it was now 7.30pm. She went off to check, came back & said no the table was booked. There was no one waiting for the table but we had to do without the desserts. Restaurant was busy, lots of children there. Dont know what the good reviews were about. Would not need to go back.
