El Paso provides authentic Southwest cuisine located in a hacienda-like setting complete with friendly professional service. Thanks much.

El Paso is our go-to for Mexican food. We love their enchiladas verdes, soupa de abuela and taco salad as stand-bys.

We had a party of 9 coworkers. Out of 9 people 5 of us got sick. We all had the re-fried beans and rice. Everyone had the same symptoms - vomiting and diarrhea. It's been four days and we're all still sick.

Hungry and decided to check this place out because it had outside seating...we have two girls (doggies). Good food, great service and decent price. A medium margarita looked like a large. Can only imagine what the large version looks like. Nice spot!

Food and service were fine, but nothing outstanding. House lime margarita's taste was a little different from what I'm used to.
