Mariscos El Costeno
According to the El Paso Times, Mariscos El Costeno specializes in seafood from the Mexican state of Sinaloa, which borders the Gulf of California as well as the open waters of the Pacific Ocean. The El Paso eatery embraces the region’s seafood dishes, particularly those that incorporate shrimp. These succulent crustaceans appear in everything from cocktails to ceviche. They also crown grilled rib-eye steaks and add some flair to platefuls of spaghetti with tomato sauce.
Shrimp and fish entrees fill the majority of the menu, although the chefs do draw a bit of inspiration from the land and forge chicken fajitas, chicken breast, and ceviche tostadas. The casual environment gets livelier on Saturday and Sunday evenings when the restaurant hosts live bands until 10 p.m.
