Kevin Lyda

Best Mexican Food in Richmond!


In town for work and was craving some chips, guacamole and salsa. Well, the chips were warm but “flat” tasting. The salsa I believe was from a jar, it was very pasty/jammy and lacked any freshness. The guacamole was very bland. I ordered a chicken burrito which had the rice and beans in it. I had to cut it open to find any chicken and it was mixed with sausage?!? $25 later and I left with 2/3 of my food left. Thanks for the recommendation, KLS!

Jyoti Gupta

Excellent food and service. Best Mexican food we have ever had!


The food was well prepared and presented; and with a friendly, helpful, and knowlegable wait staff. When you are in the mood for a new experience in food styles or preparations this would be worth a try.

Robert G

One of the best Mexican restaurants in the country! I'm a foodie and a world traveler who loves Mexican food. I've been all over Mexico and the U.S. in search of the best Mexican restaurants and El Paso consistently ranks amongst the top performers. The menu offers several unique dishes that you won't find at just any Mexican restaurant. El Paso does a phenomenal job with their seafood dishes! The portions are huge and the prices are reasonable. The recent renovations to the bar and dining room are also impressive. El Paso has been my first stop on every trip to Richmond for nearly a decade.

savannah taylor

We had a server MARTA tonight. Along with I believe a food critic sitting behind us. All the attention was on him and almost all of our orders were messed up, one was even forgotten. Never asked us I we wanted water or anything. Had to ask multiple times for one thing. Wait staff was all standing in the middle watching this guy. I came back in a minute after forgetting my food and Marta was talking bad about one of my family members I uess not knowing I could completely understand her. I always tip good but she was a complete train wreck. Very rude

Katie Bernard

Really good and nice atmosphere. Large menu and service was great.

lauren tunstall

The restaurant was very clean. The portions were large and well cooked. I enjoyed the atmosphere as well

rick leeo

Good food,good service,clean and friendly

Kevin Smith

El Paso has provided me with a consistent experience since moving to Richmond in 2002. Delicious food, friendly staff, and usually no wait to be seated. The food is also fairly priced and is served quickly.

Judith Perez

I had went yesterday with my family for the first time, and we enjoyed it. The food was amazing and the manager and the waiter were very friendly. I recommend this restaurant to anyone with a small budge and for those who like mexican food. We will return soon ! :)

Steve Danko

Great service, great food!

Rosa Lowe

Came here to eat on a business trip and came across this restaurant on Google Maps. Very clean, very friendly atmosphere, delicious food and an awesome staff. Will definitely come back again when I come back to the area. Will also definitely recommend it to others that are in the area.

Stella Mora

We have been eating at this place for the past couple years. We will either eat there, or pick up to go. The food has always been very good, and the service great. However, the last 3 times that we have called in an order to pick up, they have screwed it up! The first time the only sent the appetizer out of an order for dinner for four adults, the second time we got the large shrimp cocktail as an appetizer and when we opened it, there were maybe 5 shrimp and it was missing the red tomato sauce which is the main part of this dish, and the third time it was also an incomplete order!! Everytime this has happened my husband calls the manager to let him know, and since we're not going to take the car out to drive there again yo get whatever they messed up, they just say they will give us a discount for the next order.... That's nice, but I would much rather get my order complete.

GT Richmond

Very nice place.

Robert Williams

Always very good food served hot. Their portions are large. The service is excellent. It is the only Mexican restaurant that we go to. Great menu. I would highly recommend El Paso to anyone.

Dusty Boyd


Kevin Larson

The food was good with very large servings. The staff were very nice. The inside, especially towards the back, could use some freshening up.

Jennifer English

My hubby and I give this Mexican restaurant a 5 star rating...excellente' food and service only complaint is their margaritas are way too much can't afford to drink more than one!!!

Adam Tenbrook

Mexican food should be cheaper.

Corvette Washington

Restaurant was packed tonight Feb 6th,2019. Hostess was very nice

Tammy Diaz

Good taste, very comfortable place, and the service were so friendly!!! Recommend for a family time.

KingDiamond Playz

I went there for the first time and I practically fell in love with this restaurant. The thing I chose from the menu was the shrimp burrito Grande. There is practically no wait for fodid drinks and tables compared to most restaurants. Honestly I recommend this for everyone and if you vegetarian they have a vegetarian section so your safe. Please go here it will change your.experience about life. No Joke.

Rick McClure

Family friendly place with focus on providing great service. Lots of selections on the menu. Great new bar! Food tastes fantastic and the portion size is generous. Highly recommend this restaurant. I go there very regularly. Very friendly!

Great food, great service and huge portions

Blair Just

Fresh. Delicious. Reasonably priced. Great service. Had not been since the interior upgrade - super comfortable.

Maddy ferric

Polite, prompt service. If ordering a large Margarita, be prepared to share with someone.


The food here was delish. Unfortunately the service wasn't the best. We were seated and the waitress came over to us from sitting and eating at the bar. She took our order. Someone else brought the food. Then someone else came back a little too infrequently to check on us. Our waitress was back at the bar eating and then left altogether. We were confused who our server was. Great food tho!

Lashawn Boyd

The food and service was excellent!

Kristin Taylor

Everytime we go there, everyone is so friendly and the food is great!!!

I love this place!!!! My family and I always enjoy the food and the staff . Highly recommend this place


Food and atmosphere are great, reminded me of my childhood home in South Texas.

David Stewart

I would say 5 star but service was slow and the menu doesn't quite explain the food the way it should good flavor but was not what I expected when I ordered the food I got this steak thing that says it cover in cheese but it didnt look like it had cheese when I asked waiter he said it a cheese sauce that's watery not what I expected

Edward P

El Paso did not disappoint. We went there with a large party and everyone was well served. It's nice that they have fresh fruit juices as well...

Zachary Ortwine

This is the best kept secret for Mexican food in Richmond!! It’s by far the best Mexican food and service in Richmond! I’ve tried most of the Mexican restaurants in Richmond area and none of them come close. I recommend Camoranes a la Diablo (spicy shrimp) and the shrimp actually tastes fresh and authentic, and not like the plastic wrapped cheap shrimp at many restaurants. This will become your go to Mexican restaurant in Richmond. The waitresses are

Walter Starbuck

The food was good but the Mariachis were better. I will be definitely going back

Alan Douglas

This is a good Mexican restaurant that has gone a step upscale. The atmosphere and decor are very family /kid and also group friendly. Staff here is extremely helpful and a wide array of festive tourist alcoholic beverages are available for your party. When in doubt you can order the Choose Four to make your own combination.

William Simmons

Truly the Best Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten at.

Ali Coluccio

Love sitting outside! Staff is fast and friendly. Delicious food

Kristin Kelly

Authentic Mexican restaurant with amazing food and good service. We had Fajitad Texanas and Fajitas Aztec. It was delicious and very filling. At $14 each dish it was a good deal. I would recomend to friends and would visit again soon. Oh... we also drank Dos X beer Amber... amazing!

Good food and good service. Staff was very friendly and the Tex-Mex style food was well plated and very tasty. Prices are a little high, but fair. Worth stopping in and having dinner or lunch.

Rob Chenaultzhnbvvhi,

Hot fresh food and amazing serving size for the price


Been coming here for a long LONG time. Their service is fast & friendly and the cuisine is as authentic as you can get. Try the fish tacos!

Radoslaw Rusek

Great food. Good variety. Friendly & attentive staff.

Goog Le

Great customer service I love this place the food is really authentic

Brandon W

I really like coming here, but the last three times I’ve been with a table of 6 or more, the food takes 50-60 minutes to arrive. If this continues I will curb my visits. Groups of less than 6 seem to be in and out quick, so if this is you go give it a try.

Tammy Hart-Moulaye Dkhil

Delivery was on time. My husband's steak was bleeding he asked for well done. My steak I couldn't cut with a steak knife. Called spoke with a very very rude lady. Never again will we waste $50 on this restaurant!! past over disappointed!!

Samuel Shafovaloff

Great staff, drinks, and generous portions. Carnitas were excellent!

Janna Wiener

Typical Richmond/American Mexican food, but still good. We always share the fajitas for 2, which is a lot of food. They do table side guacamole. Usually busy and loud. The chairs are very hard to move.

Erica Thompson

Decent portion . Good was as ordered. Another 'standard' Mexican eatery. Did not get offered a refill unroll my friend and I were basically done rating. Bench was wobbly in booth and rocked when the person behind me was getting up and down.

Alexis Townsley

The absolute best! Try the tableside guacamole. You will not be disappointed.

Arun Sagar

The Mexican place closest to our house now. Always crowded. Love the table side guacamole and every dish we have tried so far. Drink size is huge and we can only finish the horchata as a family. Visited twice already and liked it both times. So many servers in this place. Spice levels are real good. Very cheerful out here.

Dominic Formosa

Always a solid go to for lunch. Fast and easy. Well priced. Always go out of your way for the homemade hot sauce if you like it spicy! If you need a recommendation, Chori Pollo is always a solid choice.

kimberly gibson

Great lunch spot! Extensive Lunch menu, quick service, modest prices. Check it out!

Bunnie Pinkston

Excellent service and great food!

Min Vai

Amber Richards

Good food. Friendly, helpful server. Good selection of drinks. Any sports you want to see available all at the same time. All over pleasant dining experience.

Robert Yancey

Everything is so good. I came here with my niece and her husband with their children and my wife. When ever I come from Florida I will eat here .Praise God for all his blessings.

Paul Fincke

Haven't been there for a while. Food was excellent. Staff was friendly and quick.

David Light

Arroz Texjano my favorite meal

Brenden Murphy

Ambience is fantastic. Table serve guacamole, great drinks, huge portions, tons of variety, hot food that doesn't look or taste microwaved (to my pallette, anyway), big margs, and very good service. Plenty of parking and easy access from the street. Go out of your way for this gem.

Marlowe Brown

Food and drinks were great! Friendly staff

Sue Salvatore

Great fajitas for lunch

Aaron Roop

The staff is always very friendly regardless of how busy they are. The food service is always very fast. Best of all, everything I've ever had here has been delicious!

Neil Essig

This place has fairly standard American-Mexican food that can be found just about anywhere else in the country. It is served in the classic "sloppy, greasy, cheesy" style we Americans have come to know and love. If you're looking for traditional American "Mexican" food, go here.

JJ Frankovich

It's my first time back in a while and the Fajita quesadilla is yummy!

Tracy Sawyer

One of the best!

Sanjay Sharma

Good experience good food


Good food

Hunter -9219

This restaurant is good but I have two complains. There are open spaces near the walls and there are sometimes ants near the right side of the tables ounce you enter the restaurant.

Christina Nestor

The food and service was good, and I really recommend this restaurant. However I did have 2 issues: 1) there was a lingering smell of burning rubber the entire time I was in there. I don’t imagine it’s normal, because this restaurant comes highly recommended to me. And 2) they sat multiple large parties next to each other in a basically empty restaurant. The place isn’t big enough to need to sit everyone in one small area.

Prashant Pawar

Food is good..just took little longer

Jill Awuni

Try their seafood soup. Its the best

Dan Wampler

RedWrath Karu

Was in an hour within hour, perfect spot for lunch during the work day. Service was quick, food was suprisingly delicious and came out in record timing from when we ordered. This pictured below is item #17 from their lunch menu. Lunch runs until 2:30pm for anyone whose curious!

Akansha Chaudhari

Great place ! Good vegetarian options and tasty food.

Penny Reamey

Food was excellent as always!!! Very busy today at lunch so service was only fair. No prices on the drink menu. Ask for the cost and difference in the small, medium and large drinks. Also, there was a major chip out of the rim of my mixed drink glass. They always try to please, today was just a busy day for them.

Robney Sadler

Wonderful service and an exceptional service staff. I highly recommend this place. Come on an empty stomach, the portions are huge.

T Ball

The shrimp tacos are awesome

Timothy Marchini

Great service, friendly staff, and the food came out quick. Portion sizes are huge. Mexican food is authentic, coming from someone who came from the Southwest.

Sarah Rana

Restaurant was recently renovated. Looks very nice. Menu also updated. Overall I had a good experience.

Michael Whitman

Good food. Good service. Its one of the best casual dining Mexican restaurants in Richmond. The only downside is that the chairs weigh a ton.


food was pretty good. service was good. but $2.25 for a small cup of cheese?!? gotta take away one star for that.. sheesh...

Emily O'Hare

Efficient staff, nice restaurant, and great food! As Mexican food lovers we've struggled since we moved to the area to find a Mexican restaurant that didn't disappoint. So happy we've found this place!

ShaDonna Monèt

The Margaritas are everything man! I can't wait to go back and drink 1 or 6 lol

Best Mexican restaurant around and love the staff

Rajiv Dadhich

+1 star for serving horchata drink..

Megan Schmidt

I LOVE Mexican food and have ventured to most of the restaurants in the greater Richmond area. Hands down - this is my favorite Mexican restaurant. The food is so fresh - giant shrimp, fresh veggies, excellent rice! The services has been great everytime we've gone. And have I mentioned the sangria? It's essentially an alcoholic fruit salad bowl. Request an Uber and go there for dinner. You won't regret it.

Michelle Crytzer

Nice and clean food was great and so was the service

Rob Gunkelman

Always good food and the atmosphere is friendly. I've been going there since high school... Who doesn't take a date to Mexican? I suggest the chori good.

Kelly Steindler

Absolutely LOVE this place ! Been eating here since I was a kiddo. Now that I can enjoy the margaritas, it's even better. Request white sauce with your chips. The spinach quesadilla is great. And of course you can't go wrong with fresh guacamole . Will be back again and again !
