“Mexican food??”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

How to prepare Nachos at "Cafe El Paso":
Take a cheap bag of Nachos from Lidl and put them on a plate. Then, open Tesco's dips on offer and put them all over the Nachos. Here you the dish we ordered.
Their website said "some of the best Tex-Mex food for miles around"... it sounds pretty pretentious if you are giving that food to customers.
Anyway, dish was cheap (understandable after having that quality) and i will suggest the place more for his nice decoration and quite atmosphere (perfect for an intimate date or a chat with some friends) rather than his food, so do not go if you are hungry!!!

“Great food let down slightly by the service”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

I visited El Paso at weekend with some friends and overall it was a good experience. The food was really good but the thing that let it down a little was the service. It seemed to take a while before our drinks arrived and the waitress was already clearing plates from the table before we had all finished. It didn't seem as though the place was that busy that they needed to clear the tables as quickly as possible. Overall, a good experience but with better service I would upgrade it to Excellent.

“If you like Breakfast Club you will HATE this place..”
Reviewed 28 October 2012 via mobile

Vile food, surly service, took 1 hour on a non busy morning for a breakfast (with no bread as they had none). Avoid and eat at Breakfast Club round the corner - there is a reason people queue for 45 mins there...

“Good basic food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Nice staff, basic but good mexican food and a really nice "cantina feel". The prices are excellent; for a main course and desert and a couple of drinks, £20 - not bad for London
