The best Mexican restaurant in the west end. I usually do take out but have dined in a few times. I love their cheese dip, arroz con carne and fajitas Texanas. As I wait for my food I grab a beer or sangria. Service is ALWAYS attentive and great! Great job El Paso!

Always enjoy this place, the chips are fresh and warm, served with queso and salsa. Never had a bad meal here, I generally get chicken dishes and they are great. Staff is friendly and attentive.

I have eaten here for both lunch and dinner several times, and it keeps me coming back. The chips and salsa are made on-site. This trip we had our favorites: tacos and fajitas. Both are served piping hot, and, oh, the aroma!!. The dining and bar areas have been redecorated with lots of beautiful, natural stone. This place should appeal... More

We often come here for lunch with our 3 grandkids when we're in town. Fast service for ages 3-6. Very friendly and accommodating staff, nice sized portions. Ample parking in the strip mall in which the restaurant is located.

We've been going to El Paso for years, and I always forget how good it is until we get there. The staff is friendly, the food always comes out hot, and above all, it's really good. We usually go for the typical Tex-Mex fajitas and tacos, but lately I've been trying other things on the menu. There are many creative... More

We used to live in Richmond but left area two years ago. We still find reasons to go out of our way to dine here. Table side guacamole is a must. Food is fresh, hot and delicious!

El Paso is our favorite American Mexican restaurant in the Richmond area. It's very inexpensive and everything I have ever ordered here has been delicious. I always get a class of their home made sangria. It is the best sangria I have ever had out. I will say it is very strong so be careful. If I have more than... More

Here for lunch recently, I'd forgotten how good it is. The service is always great, the food is good and out quickly. I had chicken enchiladas, they were well seasoned. The chips and salsa are plentiful and very good

I came here to meet family and it was my first time to this Mexican restaurant ! I was super impressed with the chips and salsa, homemade guacamole tableside, and amazing chimichangas! So good I came back a few days later for lunch and realized it was super inexpensive that time a day!! Go!!!
