Truly authentic Mexican Taqueria. From the moment you enter you feel like you are a guest in someone's home. The lunch was outstanding. The service was excellent. Even though they were busy our waitress checked on us several times. We will be back soon

My family visited Taqueria El Paso tonight for dinner. This is a small family ran business with friendly wait staff and fast service. Very authentic food. Including Lengua and cheek. Worth trying. Loved it!

This family is doing it right, and they have been since they opened. Authentic tacos, awesome salsas, and a wide variety of menu choices will keep you coming back for many more visits. Love them!
