Just Outside El Paso, Texas

On Highway 28 in La Union, NM is La Union Station. Combine a drive through pecan farms and cotton fields with wonderful food for this hidden gem of a restaurant. At this moment in time, they only serve breakfast and lunch but wow what service. If you are passing through, have a meal AND take something to go as they have reinvented a Mexican Classic with their CHOCOLATE Tres Leches Cake. I am NOT a desert person, but this not to sweet decadent miracle is NOT to be missed. Call ahead, and order one. Our Thanksgiving was AMAZING before desert, but after it, EVERY guest acted like they had just been to Lourdes. The 3 sisters who run it, have made La Union Station a detour worth taking ... Oh my!
