    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is not a party place - but a great middle class sort of eatery. Subdued lighting, wonderful waitstaff, and a musician in the corner playing requests as well as standard tunes.

    Immediately upon being seated by the maitre de (sp?), we were brought roasted jalepenios w/ onion, a wonderful fresh salsa, sour cream, butter, and a ton of chips.

    Favorite Dish: 'Tampiqueno' is the only part of the dish all 6 of us had that night. It was a thin, huge, marinated steak w/ peppers on top, beans and an enchilada. It came w/ a nice but simple side salad.

    Some of our party got the 'Sopa de Azteca'; a tomato based soup that is served with cheese, jalapenos, chipotles, thin crispy tortilla strips, and sour cream on the side. You flavor your soup with the items you desire.

    Everyone in our party was just gushing over the tastiness of our entire meal... the couple from Pensylvania who had never been over any US border before to the New Mexican man who comes across the border everyweek for work meetings.

    What came w/ our chips :)

Juárez Nightlife

  • haikugrrl's Profile Photo

    by haikugrrl Written Apr 2, 2004

    Hmm, let's see. When I go to the strip, I usually visit Reno's, sometimes Copacabana's (with Preppy's upstairs) and the Derby (but not in a really long time). Why am I telling you this?
    Anyway, I clicked on "people watching" for this, because I'm somewhat voyeuristic. I guess. It should really be under nightclubs.

    Dress Code: Hmmm, if you're in high school, you'll dress to impress, but if you know better, you'll don some classic chanclas.

Juárez Transportation

  • Private drivers from El Paso to Juarez

    Okay, do you mind if I honestly say "DON'T"!!! We parked on the US side (reccommended) and the lot attendant shooed us over to a private driver parked on the edge of the lot. He wanted to charge up $30 US to take us from our current location to the Mercado in Juarez. We talked him down to $20 PLUS the $3 trip fee over the bridge. He was a nice guy,...

  • These feet were made for walking ....

    Though there is a trolly service across the border, it is much more fun to walk the bridge! It cost us $3.00 to drive across from the US side to the Mexican side. Since I didn't walk that direction, I don't know if there is a pedestrian fee ... sorry. BUT, from Juarez to El Paso it cost me the queenly sum of 30 cents!I not only got a nice after...

  • Local cabbies :)

    We lucked out while at the cantina at the mercado. Our waiter Ricky, was so nice and professional. We asked if he could help us find a cab to take up to the Montana Steakhouse. About 10 minutes later, we met Javier, our driver. Ricky had already told us the maximum we should expect to pay, and Javier's price was just under that.After arriving at...

Juárez Shopping

  • Juarez Mercado and Cantina

    The Mercado is chock full of vendor with local art, crafts, and knock offs. The prices are amazing by US standards!The stalls are colorful, and folks are friendly ... though they can be pushy if they haven't had a good day of sales. Bargaining is expected - don't ever pay the sticker price (if there are even stickers to be seen)!They close at 1800,...

  • Driving in Juarez is dangerous!

    Especially in the downtown area, "El Centro", driving is really dangerous here. For the most part people don't obey the traffic laws and pedestrians run out in front of traffic constantly.

  • Do's and don't's

    The first thing I was told about Juarez is don't take your car across the bridge. And don't argue with the Policia. Other than that Juarez is a nice place to visit about 3 or 4 block away from the bridge. Of course they cater to the tourists so be prepared.
