Gil's Mexican Restaurant
There is no fence sitting on this one. Gil's is the BEST Mexican restaurant in El Paso... hands down. My husband and I got HOOKED on Gil's Special Burrito. It comes red or green. We love the red. To us it is less spicy and SO MUCH MORE tender than the green, and the burrito is the size of a small child! It is HUGE. We usually order one for pick up and split it. The pork in it is very tender. It literally melts in your mouth. The flavor is just *roll-your-eyes-to-the-back-of-your-head* outstanding!
On to the *lighter* side. I am a huge fan of their brisket tacos. I believe they actually fry their own taco shells. They are slightly greasy, but not a gross greasy. A soft, warm, crispy, crunchy mouth feel and the taste is like no other.
We've had their dessert flan... which is good... but not really outstanding. However, you don't go there for their dessert... you go for the best food you can ever eat in El Paso! The staff are friendly, nice and treat you like you were family visiting their home. I have never had such an all around pleasant visit to any restaurant anywhere.
You cannot go wrong with Gils. I've been a customer of theirs for almost a year now and never once had a bad experience or bad food.
This place is fantastic, I have been to other restaurants but the service and food here is exceptional. It is authentic
Mexican Food, this place needs to be reviewed by that critic in the newspaper. You have great and fast service,
the Chile Con Queso, the green enchiladas and the brisket tacos are just to die for. Their Mole special on Wednesdays
is like mother used to make. They have daily specials which will be served to you in 5 minutes or less. On Fridays
it is very busy but service is so fast that you get to wait no more than 10 minutes to enjoy your meal right away. The
atmosphere on friday's is great to go and enjoy with your family and/or friends. Try it you won't regret this place, I
guarantee it. You'd wish you would have heard of it sooner. Their daily lunch specials won't break your wallet.
Gil's is I think one of the best Mexican Restaurants here in El Paso. They have lunch specials that are at a great
price and also very delicious. If you go during lunch time you are serviced immediately within 5 minutes of sitting down.
So if you are limited time for work this is the best place to go... their brisket tacos, mole, enchiladas, especially the
chile con queso is out of this world. I just cannot find any serving that I can say I didnt enjoy. All my family goes there
for special occasions due to the variety and for the great service. If you haven't gone there you need to see what you
have been missing. The food if great and so is the staff.....
WOW !! You have to try out this place, no joke....never have i ate such delicious mexican food in my life. Gil's should be shown on the food network for the best mexican restruant in Texas. The service is always exellent and the food is always fresh. Give it a try and you will be hooked for life. favoriate dish would be the green chicken enchilldas with sour cream rice and beans. Try out the lunch specials too it wont make you broke.
If you are planning on having a delicious dinner while listening to a lively mariachi band then Gil's Mexican Restaurant is certainly the place you want to be. A moderately priced variety of traditional Mexican food items is listed on the menu which is certain to please those looking for a light dinner or a robust meal. The service is very attentive and continually refreshes your drink or the ever present chips & salsa. If you are planning on having a family gathering then accommodations can be made for large groups provided you call a few days in advance. One highly recommended dish is the Chile con Queso Ribeye Steak dinner which is certain to please.
