    I had the best soup in my life at Cafe Central. They have a cream of green chile soup that is the mosat amazing thing I have ever had. The food there is incredible.

      If you want barbeque ribs, the State Line is good. As for Mexican, give La Hacienda, Lucy's or La Nortena Y Cafe Deluxe a try.

        Google the following: "New York Times" "El Paso" wine

        and you will get a NY Times review of some El Paso places, including Billy Crews, which is over the border in New Mexico and serves basically steaks and wine for unbelievable prices. $12 for an 8oz filet mignon and $190 for a 1995 Lynch-Bages bordeaux that would cost an amazing amount otherwise. Some other places in the article as well, including Mexico so bring your passport.
