We found this place about 6 months ago and have visited 6 times, and now are going to experience there takeout. The guacamole is to dye for!! Do not pass this up!! The best AUTHENTIC mexican food we have had in all of manhattan - and we eat out a lot! Recommend the burrito al pastor - HUGE, not small servings at all. Anything with chicken, it's fresh and is marinated to perfection. Even if you are not local this place is worth visiting. Atmosphere is cozy and warm, tight tables but that's NYC for you. I've never had one problem with the service, very attentive and my water has always been filled to the brim. I was really surprised by these other reviews. Prices are great! El Paso is a must!

Food taste good and they give you just enough to be hungry after eating....... I am not a big fan of being hungry "after" I eat.....

My spouse and I eat here about once a month. Wait staff always up-sell ("any guacamole with that? any chips and salsa?"); provide bare bones attitude (sort of grunting while dropping plates on the table); providing no water; forgetting parts of orders and just scratching them off the tab without apology; not allowing any extra salsa or any mixing ("green or red only"; "no green with take-out"). That said, the food is quite good by New York Mexican standards. Not much for vegetarians.

Very good food, cheap and fast delivery, best in UES/ E Harlem by far. Burritos are excellent, shrimp are our favorites. Bargain menu.

I was recently at El Paso Taqueria, except it was in Spanish Harlem on East 102nd Street and Lexington. The food is really amazing. Probably the best nachos in NYC. The Pollo En Pipian Verde is delicious. The restaurant has a good mix of locals as well as people from outside the neighborhood. Try the Horchata drink.

If only half the UES restaurants were this good, I'd be very happy. Had super fresh authentic Mexican and even the condiments were homemade and delicious!

I live one block away from El Paso and I must admit, I don't have to go far for reliable Mexican food. Unfortunately, NYC is not known for good Mexican, but El Paso certainly stakes its claim for savory, reasonably priced, and genuine Mexican food. Great neighborhood joint!
