“El Paso Restaurant”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Loved it! Every aspect was very good - service, timeliness, charming atmosphere, casual setting, easy parking, tasty food, generous portions, extensive menu and pleasant, upbeat wait staff. It is popular so we went at an off time (late) and we enjoyed the dishes so much that we got carryout the second time in the same week. Good margaritas and decent drink choices. A fun, colorful decor and you could hold a conversation and hear what people were saying. I'll be there again and again. We had fajitas of various kinds, the huge burrito that makes two meals, and the shrimp dishes. The only disappointment was the nachos appetizer seemed to only have cheese and meat - no sour cream, avocado, or tomato chunks/salsa. The free chips are fresh and crisp and the salsa excellent. Well worth a visit here.

“Great food”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 via mobile

Great food at a great price. Chips and salsa is bottomless. I get the fajitas without the tomatoes. Plenty and great experience. Staff is always friendly.
