We moved to El Paso right before the New Year and have traditionally 'played it safe' while grocery shopping. Walmart, Target, Sprouts, the stores we are used to seeing in various states. These week we decided to stop into Vista just to check it out and left with a hand basket full of stuff. I'm almost certain we may not buy meat or fresh produce from anywhere else on a regular basis the rest of the time we live here. From fresh tortillas, to King Crab legs; massive steaks to hot or cold queso; giant chilies, large jalapeños, and a great selection of other fruits and vegetables. Do yourself a favor, if you have thought about stopping in before you've already wasted too much time; do it!
I'm at this location 4-6 times a week. One time I bought buttermilk as it was with the 2% milk. I tried to return it I couldn't because I didn't have the receipt.. it has been a bothersome to me that this store doesn't permit the customers to enter or exit the same door and actually has someone on the payroll directing customers...it's not only annoying it's unfriendly and takes the pleasure away from shopping here.. I'll go back to Sprouts
I went in to the store to by prepared food for my whole week at work while I was ordering another customer came up told the employee that he was in a hurry and she decided to help him so I walked out i usually go in every week to order food for my work week spend more than $100.00 every week this will be the last time me or my family enter this establishment
I gave this grocery store 5 stars for two reasons. They have The absolute best tortillas in town, there's no doubt about it. Also, they have an offbrand cola that I love.
Called for the manager hector to talk to him about the rat poop all over the tostadas. It took about twenty minutes three calls later I walked away to see him arriving at the front when I was checking out. I told him about the rat poop but he didn't seem to care that much or wasn't really surprised by it l. I don't think I will be coming back I used to love the place and always thought it was clean but after today I question this stores quality of cleanliness.
Nice clean and prices are reasonable like this better than walmart will continue going here
The only other Mexican grocery stores that I have been to are HEB and Central Market in San Antonio. This market certainly has an authentic Mexican feel compared to HEB and Central market which seems more of a hybrid. I didn't shop for produce but would stop by on some weekends for their barbacoa, brisket and pork from their meat station and various pastries from their bakery. Their brisket alone is something to worth trying. The price is reasonable at what I believe was 9.99/LB and their other meat stations as well. Their drink station was also really good (aqua frescas?). If sprouts wasn't located to close to this area, I would most likely have done my shopping here.
Wonderful bakery and produce sections, even a small selection of frozen vegetarian foods, plus a ton of prepared foods and desserts. We were just passing through but will make a point of stopping by this market whenever we are in town. I love it!
I love this place so much!!!! Every time I'm home from San Antonio I stop at Vista right away for burritos and Agua frescas. Always great cuts of meat and outstanding service. I love HEB here in San Antonio but Vista will always be number 1 no matter what.
This will be the third time i left the store because of the long checkout lines...especially if u get something at the burrito bar...come on!
Great place to grocery shop when they have monthly sales, staff is predominantly Latino with most being able to speak & understand English well. However, the N Zaragoza location on the Far East side I had an hygienic issue with; while speaking with an employee by their baked goods area a fly seemed to have gotten into the glass enclosure & landed on a few of the baked goods the employee shushed it out of the enclosure, did not remove any of the food it landed on & closed the enclosure. That was a turn off for me so I didn't purchase my intended pastries nor have purchased any baked goods from there since because sadly when I mentioned it to her she took the trays out once she assumed I left she placed them back into the enclosure.
Place is big and nice. Crowded on the weekends best to beat the crowd during the weekdays. The bakery has some amazing treats. They have a coffee shop, burrito bar, and drink bar inside.
I love this market store! It is a small market store, with a variety of Latin products- the majority of the products being from Mexico, which I loved! You'll find a variety of items, from cheeses, meats (even marinated meats, such as al pastor, aside, adobada and many more). In addition, they have a large variety of vegetables and fruits. They even make their own tortillas, so you're able to purchase fresh tortillas daily. Also, the store offers homemade dinners such as tamales, soups and etc. They also have a bakery that has great pastries- my favorite being their conchas- DELICIOUS! Overall, I love going to this store, it has everything I need, I am able to get in and out quickly, I rarely have to wait long in line. They also offer specials in their vegetables aisle, so Im able to purchase vegetables for a lesser value. If your ever near one of these markets, I highly recommend you to take a quick stop- you'll find everything you need and much more.
Avoid this place on the weekends! It's horribly busy.. You will get hit by incoming cart traffic!! Beware of the people who drive their carts so fast, they run into you on those dangerous curves. Oh and no one says sorry. People also come here thinking this is some type of meetup area and decide to talk right in the middle of where your supposed to walk. You literally have to yell out "EXCUSE ME" because they are so deep in their conversations. Then they look at you like your the rude one. The checkout lines have always been ridiculously long and only like three lanes seem to only be open when I've come in. Heck even the express lane is long! I always come for one or two things so having to wait more then 10mins for that is kinda cray. This place is pretty big though and it has all your Hispanic food necessities. There is also a food area and food court inside that always smells good! There are always employees stocking up shelves and produce and the store itself is pretty clean. *wear steel toed boots, never flip flops to prevent your toes from being ran over!
