These are by far the best carnitas in Texas. I've been going here since 1999. The rest of the menu is very good as well.

I love coming to Carnitas for lunch during the week. This is Carnitas' best location in El Paso. It's one of my favorite places to come and chill out with a great meal. My coworker and I always ask for Maria... we've been coming here so long she knows our order by heart and always makes our visit so pleasant.... More

Used to go here all the time and loved it. Now They've gotten sloppy and greedy. The carnitas are stll good but now you will take a risk ordering other items- very inconsistent. When ordering enchiladas beware the tortillas are three times as thick as normal and the whole enchilada is tortilla- little to no filling. I found on my... More

It used to be one of my favorite places but they only have a red salsa for everything, the chips are super greasy and the taste of the iced tea is very bad. They have a "good barbacoa " and decent Carnitas.

Carnitas Queretaro has a number of restaurants in El Paso, and all are consistently delicious. All their soups are great! Love the pozole. Try anything there. The carnitas are juicy. Green chicken enchiladas moist. Good mole. Sopes are a change up from tacos. Handmade tortillas you can sink your teeth into. Great food!

First time to visit El Paso. Wanted to experience local food and saw many good reviews for this place. Place was almost empty, less than 10 tables which I thought was strange for a Saturday evening. First negative was taking 25 minutes to get drinks. Big fan of carnitas so that's what I ordered. 35 minutes later our food came... More

Ok...not going to lie, the first think that hit me was the smell. It smell kinda funky, it's the carpet.I almost turned around but if it wasn't for my Hubby, really wanting a torta. Anyway the food turned out really good. We will definitely go there again.

My sons' favorite place to eat Mexican food. The service is always excellent, the food is delicious, and the beer is cold. Always a fun experience.

My wife and I went here for dinner. The food was delicious and very inexpensive. Though I didn't have any drinks, I could see the bar was well equipped and I can only assume the drinks there are fantastic.

I have had the carnitas (one plate enough for both of us), the barbacoa (good, but a little greasy), and the red enchiladas. Everything is great! Their GIANT beers (Dos XX) on draft are only $7.00
