Anyone got any suggestions on where to go/what to eat in El Paso?

Other than a visit to the donkey show?

Can we get back on the subject as I am going to be in ELP this weekend and was hoping for some culinary leads. Preferably good Tex/Mex or?

carnitas queretaro is a great mexican place to eat. Take Airway to I-10 and then go east til you see it on the north side of I-10.

Plenty of good eats and drinks in El Paso..

A couple of local places that come to mind are Big Wally's and The Surf Club.

Head to N. Mesa street, which is on the west side of the mountain... Lots of good food on the street. You can also follow the I-10 access road and you'll find a lot of places on both sides running the length of the town.

Nothin' beats Chico's Tacos after a good night in the bar.
Just about any place is good mexican food as long as its not a nationwide chain.
The steak at Cattlemans is awesome....
Another good place for brisket is STATE LINE.
Used to have all you could eat for $20.00 ish but thats been a few years.

Cattle Barron

There is a pretty good restraunt right outside the airport. Cattle Barron. If your pressed for time. They have a huge salad bar and some great steaks. Next would be Cattleman's. There are some good place to eat. It's kind of a sad town. I use to fly in and out of there a lot. Everyone always seems to walk around with their head down...depressing place.
