I know that we are isolated out here in far West Texas and most of the time, editors of magazines aren’t going to make the trip to even see what we have to offer…sad. Well, Texas Monthly just put out there top 50 BBQ restaurants in Texas and El Paso didn’t register one eatery…nor did Waco (which has some good joints in my opinion) The closest place that made the list is Pody’s in Pecos.
So where does this leave El Paso? We have a few BBQ joints….not a lot, but a few. We have State Line (also known as county line in all other Texas cities), Rudy’s, Smitty Pit BBQ, and Tony’s the Pit BBQ. There used to be a great place off Montana past Airway that closed down…believe it was called Longhorn BBQ….they had a great Brisket burrito.
I’ve been to all the places mentioned above and I gotta say…The Pit is my favorite…is it top 50 worthy? Not sure, but you can make the decision for yourself. Here are websites/directions for BBQ joints in El Paso….leave a comment if I left one out. Forgot that Famous Daves is here as well…but that is super commercial in my mind…even though I do enjoy it for a quick meal.
Read about this kid in the El Paso Times. He is a math wiz, senior at Fabens, and has been offered a scholarship to go to MIT. Hope he comes back to ELP after all of his education and uses his skills here!
I thought we should have some fun this morning and decided to do a “What would you choose” poll. I’ve come up with a number of choices of things that could happen…some outlandish…some that may come true in the months and years to come. Let me know your thoughts.
I’m glad somebody caught this on tape. Here is NWS’s definition for a gustnado:A slang term for a short-lived, ground-based, shallow, vortex that develops on a gust front associated with either thunderstorms or showers.
Thanks to you tuber Gary Wallace for uploading his video.
Yep….I had the picture, words, and what I thought was a happy stomach. Then came a few hours later on Sunday….and I was visiting the bathroom every hour on the hour till this morning…bad food!
So I’m sorry cheap Sunday morning buffet that I thought would be good because all of your other food usually tastes good…but you got me sick and now I have nothing nice to say about you…I want to throw you onto the street.
At least Chicago has buffets that don’t get me sick.
My name is David and I am living El Paso.
….the name of the place is hidden within my post…thought I would have some fun with it since I couldn’t have fun yesterday or for the start of my day.
This poll is for those who commute from ELP to LC or LC to ELP. The drive has gotten better with the addition of a third lane from exit 0 to LC city limits but it is still a drive for those commuting both ways. If TX & NM had a partnership to get something like this installed, would you use it?
It’s important for our region to be as well connected as possible.
