Our delicious recipes have been passed down from generation to generation, bringing the best Mexican food and entertainment to Utah.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

My usual Mexican Restaurant is closed on Sunday, so my wife and I decided to check out El Paisa Grill. First of all - first impression. nice decor and atmosphere. The place looked very clean. I was suprised by the crowd for middle of the afternoon on Sunday. I had an idea that the food would be good as my wife and I were the only non-hispanics in the palce. The menu. all of the usual suspects are there, but this large menu offers items that I have never seen on a menu at a Mexican restaurant in Utah or in Texas. There were lots of seafood choices. For this first visit, my wife and I both stuck to items we were familiar with. I figured if they could do the "basic" well, then everything else would be great. My wife had a steak chimiichanga and I had the chili rellenos. Both were excellent and the portions were large. The restaurent specializes in food cooked and served in very large molcajetes. I will definitely be trying one of those on my next visit. There definitely will be a next visit..

“WOW!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

This is the most delicious Mexican food that I have ever had! I cannot wait to go back again! We are already planning another dinner there. The only thing is the music is too loud, would be nice if volume turned down quite a bit.

“Wonderful and very tasty”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

So I ordered the crane asada and it was delicious. Since it was the closes restaurant to the hilton but. Didn't expect to see live music. The gentlemen singing had a really good voice. The only thing I can complain about was that once we ran out of our drinks we didn't get a refill until we got up and asked for one. Other than that everything including the atmosphere was good. I do think the restaurant was a little out dated but not sure if it was decorated as such on purpose.
