Food, Drinks, & Entertainment in Lake Villa

Family-owned and operated, El Paso opened in September 2015, and is run by Juan and his niece Maria. When we asked Juan why they named their establishment El Paso, he said it was because it’s an easy name to remember and has a nice ring to it. It’s also brought many traveling Texans in for a Tex-Mex style meal.

El Paso has a full-service bar with drink specials every day. It’s a smaller space, but that’s the point: it’s authentic and homey as if you were in mom’s kitchen. There’s seating along one side with a brick wall that gives guests some privacy. And the best part? The skylights bring in lots of natural lighting and warm vibes. The other side of El Paso has table seating and five slot machines, perfect for those who are waiting for their meal or ready to win after they’ve indulged. And of course, the entire restaurant is filled with fun Mexican decor that transports customers to beautiful (and warmer) Mexico.

The staff is so kind and attentive to all of their customers, giving folks just one more reason to visit El Paso if you are ever in Lake Villa — come with friends or family and we’re sure you won’t regret it. Just over the tracks off Grand Avenue for tacos, margaritas, and so much más!
