We ate here on cinco de mayo. The burritos were like works of art! If I lived here, would definitely go back.

“Stay away from El Paso Deli Restaurant.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

My husband and I just came back from having dinner at the El Paso Deli Restaurant following the advise of NYC guide we bought. Be aware of the service trying to sell you everything they can. Our impression was that they tried to take advantage of us as we are not Mexican and it was clear we are tourists. We were told that all tap beers were $5 and they charger us $8 for each!!! They offered nachos with guacamole as an aperitif while waiting for the food and that alone was $9 before tax and service! To add insult to injury they wanted 20% service surcharge. We ended up paying 32$ each for only one taco and one beer. My advise... Stay away from El Paso Deli Restaurant.

“Authentic Mexican Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

Excellent dining experience at El Paso. We started out with the authentic Guacamole and one of the best ceviches I have ever had. The tacos (chicken and beef) were a steal for $6.50. The El Paso Margarita was sinfully delicious and the flan was the real deal.

The restaurant decor was perfect and the music provided a lively vibe. An overall excellent experience!

“Delicious and Pleasant Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

I have been here several times.It is quite convenient if you are visiting Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Museum of the City of NY, El Museo del Barrio or NY Academy of Medicine. Everything is good. I like the salads and the tacos.

“Authentic Mexican Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

Visited this establishment with a friend who is very familiar with the city. The food was excellent. Best tortilla soup I have had in years. The tacos of carne asada were excellent. Dessert flan was very good as well.
The atmosphere is very lively with music playing in the background and the restaurant was packed. Service was very good, the waiter was friendly and attentive. Prices are just like anywhere in NYC but it was very good.
