You could be in any one thousands of Mexican joints when you walk in here. The ambiance is stereotypical. I splurged (relatively speaking, in the context of this restaurant's menu) and ordered the lamb fajitas. It came from the kitchen on a sizzling iron plate -- a showy display which guarantees nothing, aside from the fact that the platter itself... More

It's nice to have this restaurant so close to us. We live in Canada and cross the border just to come here since there isn't a lot of Mexican restaurant choices on this side of the border. Service is quick and friendly. The food is good

I've been wanting to try this place for years as I pass by frequently. It's past reviews from friends that encouraged me to try it out as admittedly the optics walking past aren't overly enticing. I love Blaine, a pre or post dinner sunset walk here turns an " I'm too tired to cook" night into a date night. Drinks... More

We come here quite frequently from north of the border, where they don't know how to do Mexican. Paso's is a treat for us Canadians. The servers are friendly, and the food is Mexican (not Tex Mex). And the quality of the food they serve up is always consistent Having said that, the food really is only strictly average. You... More

On a cold rainy day we visited Paso del Norte for lunch. The service was prompt and friendly. The salsa with the chips was well above average for this area. Menu selection for lunch was very good, although we both stuck with our favorite enchilada plate lunch. The chicken enchiladas were very meaty and there were plenty of refried beans... More

This is a jewel in Blaine. It is a large restaurant with a separate bar area. The food is always good. And their menu of authentic Mexican and local TexMex is extensive. Even offering a limited north American menu like burgers and fish and chips. Lots of specials. Free pool all day. Occasional live music. Happy hour is 4-6 everyday... More

I was referred to this place by a friend. We both like Mexican. My wife and I thought we would check it out one evening for dinner. It is attached to a bit of a sketchy looking bar. Probably not the best place to go if you have kids with you, just saying. This is not fast food by any... More

Good downtown location. Close to Motel International. Great service and bar specials. Pleasant bar and restaurant atmosphere. Food average. Sister had shredded beef taco salad and me vegetarian tamales. Would make another selection next time.
