This place was worth a shot since it was "attached" to the Best Western and we didn't have to drive anywhere. The first night we just sat at the bar and had beer and a few tequila shots. Marcos was very helpful. The next night we ordered for takeout. Everything was delicious. People are nice and very accommodating.

These Gringos loved it! Authentic, fresh food, homemade tortillas. Great selection of Mexican beer, good, friendly service. Very close to hotels after travelling, though mostly locals. We'll be back!

After a morning spent hiking in Chimney Rock State Park, we were hungry for some Mexican food..we're heading out to Hendersonville and checked TripAdvisor. We prefer to do local rather than chain restaurants when we are traveling since we can always do a chain at home....raise is a small, family run restaurant...we came in around 2 pm..one of the owner's...

As other reviewers have emphasized, this restaurant serves authentic Mexican food with a few Tex-Mex choices for the less adventurous. The salsa bar it's self is worth the trip. This staff are always very friendly and accommodating. The prices are quite reasonable particularly given the high quality of the food. Highly recommended!

This is the sister restaurant to El Paso. The El Paso is located in the Best Western and this place is across the street. El Paso is the American version of Mexican food. Taqueria is authentic Mexican food, no ground beef here. The food was good and full of flavor.

First of all, I need to make clear that there are two restaurants here that are constantly being confused in reviews. There is a very good, full service, margarita serving El Paso restaurant in the Best Western motel that is NOT the restaurant that i am reviewing. I am waxing poetic about the the Taqueria Mexicana El Paso Azteca Express... More

If you're looking for carnitas, carne asadas real Mexican, this place delivers. Friendly servers and efficient service. A true gem of a restaurant.
