It wasn't terrible but just wasn't good enough...ya know? I wanted a steak a la carte but they did not understand or work with me. I finally just got the beef steak with all the trimmings for $14. I ate the ssteak, which was tough in some places but very flavorful. The other family members seemed to enjoy their meals as well. A bit overpriced for what they have. Very nice clean bathrooms.

I ordered one of the "Chef Suggestions" and it was ok. Coffee came back a bit cold. I had high hopes for the pastel de tres leches, but it was mediocre. Mole sauce was a bit better than expected, but flautas were just average.

Over all, an ok / average taste for Mexican food.

Service was good. The waiter brought me samples of the sauces when I asked for suggestions.

Met two friends for dinner. Bar is very cozy with nice atmosphere. So we ate there. Margaritas were individually made modest price and precisely excellent. I had the Julio special enchilada. Mole rich and flavorful with minimum hot. My friends has chimichanga and salpicon both excellent. The check at the end was a bargain
Christian the bartender was also our server and was attentive will keep this as a favorite for El Paseo

I've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal or bad service. One of the best and most consistent restaurants in town IMHO. The flautas are super and the salpicon is always good. The margaritas are never watered down, and the salsa is very unique. I experienced Julio's for the first time in Juarez in the 70's and was very happy when they opened in El Paso. This place should be on your top 5 list of eateries to try. There is an ambience of old world class about the place.
