El Paso Taqueria
Posted by Anonymous on 01/14/2014
When the patrons at this friendly Mexican restaurant are 90% Mexican, I know it's "the real deal" and we were not disappointed at each of our three visits. The tasty guacamole, served with freshly made chips, was perfectly prepared "mild" and our helpful waiter, Jaime, offered to bring jalapeno peppers on the side for my husband and son who can tolerate the heat! The Mexican cheese with chorizo, that we wrapped in freshly made tortillas, was outstanding, as was the shrimp ceviche. Only dish that wasn't excellent were the tamales. Too dry and not very tasty. And the flan, prepared on top of thinly sliced oranges, was the best we've ever had in NYC! Yes, El Paso is "the real deal" and prices are cheap by comparison to any Mexican restaurant in the city, with huge portions that are excellent and tasty, with no pretension.

I am so sad! Under new management all of the interesting dishes have disappeared from the menu. Including my favorite: "Pipian Verde Con Pollo pumpkin seeds, tomatillo jalapeno, & hoja santa sauce, served with black bean tamale." Burritos, fajitas, etc. but no more reallly special things. The food tasted fine, but just like so many other Mexican restaurants. Too bad!

The food is amazing,this is my favorite mexican restaurant. It is as good as rosa mexicano,or dos caminos for half of the price...so really worth the try. I wish the saturday and sunday brunch menu would be applied to the other days of the week as well...t

I'm a Spanish Harlem resident since 2005 and I've been going to this restaurant since it opened (I used to go to the one on 104 before the renovated/relocated). The food is authentic Pueblo cuisine, not just your standard Mexican fare. The kitchen and bar areas are kept extremely clean unlike a lot of other restaurants I've noticed. Service is very attentive and everything I've ever ordered has been worth the $$. Brought family, friends and co-workers here and have YET to have a bad experience. Only complaint is that the drinks prices have gone up (a margarita is no $11). They should bring them back down to 7 or 8 and I'd have two.

You can't get a burrito, enchiladas and 2 sodas for dinner for less then 30 dollars anywhere in NYC. If you do give me a holler. I love el paso

When I first moved to East Harlem, I loved El Paso...but now I don't. I don't thinks its consistent, it's expensive and the burritos are almost meatless. Today was my last disappointment with El Paso. I won't be ordering from there again.
