“Food Bland,Drinks great!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

The Good:
The Sangria at this restaurant is really good and so are the Margaritas.Prices for food and drinks are great.
Service is great ,friendly and always helpful.Price for food is excellent and portions are big.

The Bad:
Food is on the bland side.Noting extremely tasty or stand outs as excellent.Its not nasty ,it will do for the price and the smell is awesome and it looks great,but taste doesn't match up.

I expected more since its advertise as authentic Mexican food.
I made a second trip since the drinks were so good and ordered another item ,same opinion of the food.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

I really wanted to like this place. I really wanted some good Mexican food. The place looked authentic, the service was excellent, the chips and salsa were good, but the food was just bland. The refried beans were particularly watery and tasteless. The enchiladas and tacos we tried were kind of okay, but again bland. I admit, I am used to really excellent Mexican food and it has made me choosy, so maybe others would think it was good.

“Excellent Food....and Excellent Customer Service!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

El Paso is our favorite restaurant for authentic mexican food. Even though their website may not indicate catering, we recently ordered several dishes to serve at a family get together. Thanks to Manager Roy and his staff, we could not have been happier with our choice. The food was hot and ready to serve, it was delicious and plenty of it. We will definitely continue going to El Paso, as well as reaching out to them when we need catered food. Thanks again!
