If you haven't been here lately, you haven't been here.. When we're hungry for Mexican food, we always head here. The service is friendly and competent. In addition to the kinds of things seen everywhere else, they offer several unique entrees that are tasty and border on healthy! The Pollo Azteca is a favorite. The decor is unique, with hand carved benches and tabletops and bright colors. The food is fresh, well-spiced, and served promptly.
Can't ever get in to be seated. Probably on 3 different occasions, I'll wait to get in, but the hostess never shows up, so we leave.
Very good Mexican food in Chesterfield VA. Our family has been dining at the Centralia Rd location for several years and prefer it to all other El Paso locations in the area. The prices are unbeatable and we have never had an unfriendly wait staff or anyone who did not understand our request even though we only speak English. Everyone is very attenativebut not bothersome. The hand painted wall murals add a nice festive flair to the dining experience and the food is delicious. Enjoy!
Food is great, prices reasonable, staff unfriendly unfortunately.
We frequent the El Paso on Centralia Rd because we love the food. The chili relanos could be a bit bigger but other than that, the food is great. Prices very reasonable also. Two things we have never liked about this El Paso AND the one on Midlothian Tnpke. is most of the staff are not very friendly AND very few of them speak English.......can't understand it either. On many occasions, we'll ask for something, they'll shake their head like they understood, and nothing we asked for comes our way til we search up a staff member that understands English. If they don't understand what we say, the managers should tell them to get another staff member that is better with English. NonEnglish workers SHOULD NOT BE WAITERS AND WAITRESSES in America where we speak English.
One thought here for the unfriendliness of the staff is: it brings a question to my mind whether the managers are so tough on the employees that they don't WANT them to be friendly. Maybe they don't figure they have time to be friendly as it may take a few bucks out of their pockets if they don't work like slaves every moment. Makes me wonder.
