We stopped for Dinner on our way to Myrtle Beach. Food is really good. Our waiter was the best. He made suggestions about the menu items and he was spot on! Very happy we chose to eat here.

This restaurant comes off as being authentic by transforming the 1960's location into a contemporary Mexican place. Been drip with the chips was good. We were never told about the salsa bar. Very disappointed. Went here for convenience. Food was good.

I have to say the food here is excellent but the management and staff leave a bitter taste. Having spent ten years, on and off in the restaurant business, it takes quite a bit to get to me. We were seated in a booth near...a wait station. It was early evening and not too busy so there was wait staff congregating there. It was a bit noisy but okay. One of the staff was looking at his phone and listening to something on speaker. I asked him to put in earbuds or watch it somewhere else. Within a couple of minutes a young man came up to the table to ask if everything was all right (the staff was milling around behind him). I told him that it was very distracting to have someone listening to something on their phone and that I could hardly hear my friend’s conversation. He proceeded to ask me in a condescending tone if I was’ “Are you having a bad day?” Really? No I am trying to enjoy my meal. I disengaged as there was no need to go any further. One of the hostesses asked if i wanted to see a manager and i told her no. He turned back to the staff in a triumphant manner (BIG man). That was when I asked to see the manager. When the manager arrived at the table he defended his staff’s right to listen to their phones on speaker. Well that is “tone at the top,” trickling downstream. No wonder they have attitude problems. Our waitress “tossed” a box to me for my remaining meal. She was cordial to my friend and said nary a word to me. The food is great but this is the second time I have run into staff attitudes that impacted my experience. I will NOT be back.More

We got lunch specials and they were both good but dinner size portions! We could easily have shared. I got the chicken nachos and they were so good!! Love that it had yellow, red and green grilled peppers. Service was also excellent. Whether you’re from...here or driving through, it’s definitely worth stopping here!More

The food at El Paso in Hendersonville is excellent. The service was also excellent as Duvan, our waiter, was very attentive and welcoming.

Absolutely my favorite restaurant ever!! Duvan was so professional and accurate! I love how quickly food is prepared, and everything is absolutely delicious. I drive over 20 miles everytime I want authentic Mexican food, this is the ONLY place I will come to!!

We were able to sit in a booth but they had good COVID spacing. The food was good, with large quantities, and the bean dip was excellent!

We eat here a lot and always have great service. We always ask for Ivan because he knows exactly what we like to eat! Tonight Ivan was finished but his cousin Duvan waited on us for the 1st time and he did a wonderful job...as well. Having great customer service is a must for us and these young men are the true definition of what it means to have such a great gift! Thanks, The Carter’sMore
