“75 minutes for a fajita?”
Review of El Paso

Reviewed 25 July 2014

The food was good and the location too, but the service was horrible.
It took 75 minutes to get our food and since the neighboring tables didn’t all have to wait as long (some did thou) I can just assume the kitchen was in disarray.
The people at the table next to ours left after having waited about half an hour to get something to drink.
When pressed about it the waitress claimed “everyone came in at once”, but with a 70% fill of the tables outside and less than 30% inside that was just no good excuse.
No real apology, no compensation and not even a decent explanation. I will not be back in anything that can be called future.

Seemingly a nice place with atmosphere. And so it is - if you prefer to go for drinks only. Service is fair, but the food is not up to par. We had four different dishes; fajitas, enchiladas, tortillas and chicken wings - and except for the wings it all tasted the same; soggy vegetables (all the same in the different dishes - apart from the enchilada that had some mushy beans added), same tame sauces and the same dull flavours. Usually I eat all the food on the plate, but this time I did not.
Recommendable? - Only with new chefs.

Thank Stordalen

Had lunch here, Location great and service was very friendly. The food was disappointing. The portions were large, but nothing "fresh". Could tell food came from freezer, just seemed lazy. Really too bad as this place has potential. If we were to go again, it would be for drinks only.
