We decided to try them on their second day open, expecting a disappointing result, but far too impatient to let everyone else try them before we did. Boy, were we wrong…We were seated as we entered about 11:35 for lunch, surprising since the parking lot was already beginning to fill, and they’d been on the news that same morning. Cameron took our order, and brought our drinks out promptly. We asked the same thing we usually ask when we try any new burger, “What size are the patties on the burgers?” to which he promptly replied, “two 4 ounce patties.” Most new staff members are unaware when asked such a specific question… Kudos to you Cameron.We ordered the Bacon Cheese Burger and the Carnita Fajitas, but were disappointed that they could not ½ the burger for us before bringing it out. In trying a new restaurant, we like to share two items to get a better feel for the place. When the food arrived, we realized why they would hesitate to cut the burger. It was beautiful, a work of art in a true bacon-lover’s eyes (my license plates are “BACON1” by the way). We cut it ourselves, and were instantly impressed with how perfectly cooked the patties were, and the aroma of real smoke coming off of the bacon (at least 4 pieces of heavenly bliss, folded over and stacked above and between the patties. The taste was sublime and I instantly forgot that I was in a new restaurant, but the real surprise was the French Fries. They were light and crispy, with a subtle seasoning, and inside, the potato was fluffy and hot. They remained crisp, even as they cooled. I think they are the best fries I’ve had in El Paso.We then portioned out the carnita fajitas, where the shredded meat sat atop grilled onions and peppers. It was served on an iron skillet, not unlike the local expectation for fajitas, but I was pleased to get the taste of ample black pepper in the meat, which set it apart from the traditional Mexican fare to which I’m accustomed. It came with a side plate of guacamole, sour cream, lettuce and shredded cheese, and three flour tortillas. At first, I disliked the thick tortillas, but the taste was good and they held up well to being filled with a huge helping of meat and toppings. After we used the first three, Cameron brought us another three to finish off the carnitas we had remaining. We easily made five ample tacos from our plate, and we used the final tortilla to clean the skillet. While it was somewhat different, it was a welcome change and we both really enjoyed the dish.Our total bill (pre well deserved tip) was $24.35, $9.50 for the Bacon Cheese Burger and fries, $11 for the fajitas, and $2 for tea. We both had enough and rolled out to go back to work and sleep it off. I’ll be there again, and often.

So, I went here for my first ever salon kind of service. I'm a dude and was nervous and did not know what the Hell I was doing. The staff were so welcoming and friendly...all of them. I tried to get a wax once from one of those Asian places and that was a huge mistake. The Korean's yelled across the place and I was so embarrassed. Guys, you will not experience that at Gentlemen's Republic. It's a classy joint. Their services have more appropriate masculine names that I like too. A pedicure is called a foot detail, manicure is called a hand detail. I got both of those and something done on my face. You can change the channel on the TV, they have an x-box you can play and they offer you alcoholic drinks of your choice at no charge. It's pretty awesome. Very non-judgmental and chill staff. They are pretty crafty on their up-sell so make sure you tell them if you want something or not. The staff have an artsy look which adds to the cool vibe of the place. The owner is a pretty amazing woman too. When I went, they accepted cash only because their credit card machine was down...that sucked but it was just a hiccup in the system. The building is located in the historic area of downtown and it is pretty cool. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and will be going back

Delicias Del Mar
My family and I had seen a commercial not to long ago about this place. Well let me start by saying what you see on the commercial is what you get. I had the Pulpo a Las brazas it was delicious it comes with what they call "black sauce", which seems to be a citrus Worcestershire sauce. My wife had the Filete Ajillo which was amazing it came with a side of mashed potatoes and rice. They only downside that I saw was when we ordered the Camarones al mojo de ajo. This plate is shrimp sautéed with garlic mashed potatoes and rice but it only included 6 large shrimp. For those with a sweet tooth the chocoflan hits the spot, you are in for a treat I dont like sweets but this was perfect. The service was stupendous but what was just over the top I saw what I can only assume might be the owner offering complementary beer to the parties waiting for a table while he apologized for the wait. I haven't seen this type of service since the last time I visited a high end restaurant in Cd. Juarez, MX.

The Cake Boutique
After an extensive search of the city for not only a visually pleasing cake but also wanting a tasty and moist cake, I came upon The Cake Boutique. I met with the owner and had a very good experience with her. She made me feel like she was going to do the best job for me and believe me, she delivered. Not only was the cake a beautiful work of art, but the cake itself was the best i have ever tasted. The owner also delivered the cake herself AND called afterwards to find out if we were satisfied with her work. Now that is a rarity. I would be remiss if i didnt mention that the price for the cake was the most competitively priced in town for a cake that fed over 200 people. I would HIGHLY recommend The Cake Boutique to everyone who loves made from scratch, moist and beautiful cakes. You will not regret it.

Being in the military and moving around it is hard to find a good barber, let alone a place that can cater to a man's up-keep. I found this place by searching the Internet and let me tell you it was worth the wait. This place is the epitome of man spa. The owner has done an excellent job of setting the atmosphere and providing all the right services to keep people coming back. From the moment I arrived I received the best massage I've ever had. Renee' really took care of me. Then I was treated to a foot detail that was right on point. And finally, my haircut and shave were something that resemble the 1920s. It was nostalgic, refreshing, and relaxing. If you are not making this place a routine stop to pamper yourself, you are missing out. If I could have given this place 10-stars, I would have.

Riviera Restaurant
I stopped into Riviera for lunch and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is nothing special to look at - the sign said it's been there since 1948 - but it was clean and has a homey feel. The meal started with tortillla chips and semi-spicy fresh red salsa. I didn't see anything but soft drinks on the menu, but I saw someone else having a can of beer so that's what I ordered. Not sure if they have margaritas.I ordered the "old green" chile enchiladas, which were full of, and covered by, melted cheese. I wanted more of the tangy sauce, but overall the dish was very good. The rice and refried beans were a nice complement. The portion size was good for the price.The service was a little on the pokey side, but very pleasant. Overall, a good stop for a relaxed Mexican lunch.

My wife set up a Signature Package at this place, and I have to admit that at first I was embarrassed because my friends were all ribbing me calling me a metrosexual and such. Well call me whatever you want, because this guy is the new mayor of this awesome place. The professionalism of all the service providers was really above par. I got a massage that left me speechless, a fricking awesome foot detail that took away all of callouses, a hot later shave that knocked me out, and a cool haircut AND they even fed me!! All they are missing is the hammock in the back patio. My wife had to drag me out of there.I think she is jealous now, because she has never come home from a spa day like I did. Thanks Babe I know you really love me cuz I am doing it again next month!

Thanks to all the ranting and raving from several and I mean several of my friends who have gone to this truly resplendent establishment. It takes but a second to see when you are in a classy and upscale yet almost nostalgic place. I truly felt like a gentleman when I was getting a haircut and then a shave. Although I have had many a straight razor shave in various locations around the country, none like the kind I received at the hands of the AMAZING SUNNY. Talk about incredible, she even managed to put me to sleep with the chatter in the next room. Did i mention that the minute i walked in I was greeted and then asked if I would like a SCOTCH or BEER?? I decided on a sip of TEQUILA. Can't say enough. Go my friends go now.

My neighbor told me about GR over a year ago now because of their hot lather shaves and complimentary drinks... I went once and I haven't been any where else since! Phenomenal customer service, knowledgeable staff who are very skilled and take pride in what they do, very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, and best of all, even though it says "salon" in the name it isn't your normal salon. Caters to both men and women and is basically a one stop shop for all of your grooming needs. Arlene has got to be one of the best stylists in town and Laura, the owner is super nice. Very Highly Recommend Gentleman's Republic regardless of what you need. They have you covered.

BEST BARBER SHOP EVER!!!! I have always wanted a Hot Lather Straight Razor Shave but after trying several shops in El Paso and Las Cruces I had just about given up hope until I read about this new barbersalon concept in the EL PASO INC. It was like walking into another time. From the design to the customer service, to the services offered! I love it and i am no longer embarrassed to get my hands,feet and face done. They even gave me a beer but I fell asleep during the foot detail. I am definately a convert and will come back every month!!!Thanks for the great service. I will tell all my friends.

Just a moment...
