“Ah Cararumba”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

If our want to authentic Mexican food, this is the place to be.
El Paso, has been here for many years and for good reason. From Salsa through the menu it is excellent, The Murals are fun, with Pancho Villa on the train etc.

“Full portions, yummy food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I have been to both El Paso locations (Alexandria and Springfield) and the food is excellent! I have not had anything at either location that was not up to par! I am very fond of the Tacos Mexicanos with the Carnitas. I like that you can choose your meat for the tacos...and they have several meats to chose from! Their queso dip is very good. The green salsa served with the carnitas tacos is EXCELLENT. And save room for the tres leches cake!

“Very good Mexican food by Virginia standards, and cheap!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

One of my favorite local lunch stops. A different $6.99 lunch special each weekday, or a 2-item combo for $5.99. Dinners around $10. Good, friendly service. At present, the nearby Giant supermarket offers 2-for-1 coupons for El Paso on the back of their grocery receipts.

“Very Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

My son and I ended up at the restaurant after trying the Blue Pearl restaurant next door. It was 9:30 on a Saturday night. I ordered the fish tacos and they were delicious. We also had the guacamole, which was very good. The waitress was great and very attentive. After a day of sightseeing in the city we were exhausted and the staff had us in and out in 45 minutes.
