Located right on the main square, this is a cozy Mexican restaurant. I went there for breakfast on the advice of someone local. Great food, good salsa, friendly service, and very reasonable prices.

The restaurant is clean, fast service, staff is polite. The food is just ok. Not bad just not great. If its your lunch hour need something quick and want to sit down try this place.

Seated quickly. We were waiting for more people to show up so we didn't order right away. When we were ready our order was taken quickly and service was great! All our order came out correctly and was hot. Very tasty. Atmosphere was good and noise level low. Wish they would offer whole beans on their entres.

When we arrived most tables were dirty so it was a while before we sat down the horchata and Limon aid were not good at all food took a while to come out and when it did I was not impressed at all by it I honestly would not eat here again

This is a place I frequently visit, Caldo de res is awesome! the luch specials are great! Flautas are good too. One of the best chips and salsa in El Paso. What I like here is the food tastes like home made, very traditional.

Stopped by for late lunch at Yarbrough location. Lots of customers but both of our meals were cold. First bad experience for me and normally very good. No one took responsibility and blamed each other.

Burger was good, burrito was small, nachos were ok, enchiladas were "different", and mango drink was a powder drink. And no bean and cheese tacos?!!! Customer service was ok but overall, probably would not return.

Went to La Malinche today in the late afternoon. We were hungry for tacos. My daughter ordered ground beef tacos which she was not happy with as the meat was mixed with potatoes. We saw that on the menu but we were already seated so we thought we'd try it. The tacos completely fell apart so she just ate her... More

A large group of my co-workers stopped here for an early lunch. We were seated promptly and everyone was nice and welcoming. The service was great with her constantly checking on us for refills. I got the steak tacos for $9 and they were filling & delicious. The complimentary chips and salsa were great as well. Large dining area can... More
