Airport food is almost always way over-priced and under-quality, but this place was pretty good. Prices were high, airport ambience, but it was more crowded than other places, so we decided to check it out. We weren't disappointed. They need to improve their ordering procedure. It took a while to figure out which line was which and which window to... More

Margaritas, fish tacos, and Michigan basketball on the big screen. The only drawback was the loud music. Service was good. margaritas a bit small.

Food was good (Mexican bowl and taco combo). Beer was insanely expensive even for an airport ($8 bottle). Like others have said, confusing layout for ordering and barely clean enough. Michael is entertaining though.

Good service and the food is doable for an "airport!" Got to the airport earlier than expected and was able to catch the World Series game with TVs around El Paseo. Good way to meet people as well.

Fresh tortillas, little pricey for portion size, great salsas. Not the best option if in a rush to catch a flight.

Enchiladas were good. No refills overall ok for airport food. Number 9 burrito just ok. Stop by for a snack

I was tired and had been traveling all day. I was hungry. I was cranky. I wanted to just find a place, sit down, order a meal, and relax between flights. I found the layout of this cafe at LAX a bit distracting. The main entrance leads you to a series of tables or a counter where you can order... More

Whenever my wife and I are in Los Angeles, we ALWAYS plan at least one meal at El Paseo. It's one of our favorite Mexican restaurants anywhere. Their enchiladas are the best I've ever tasted. In fact, everything we've ordered there has been excellent. The service is friendly and efficient. Highly recommended!
