West Texas Suggestions?

  • d

I'll be heading out to El Paso at Xmas time. Are there any good suggestions for a place to eat around the Fort Stockton area? That's usually about the time we get hungry on the trip.

For that matter, what are good suggestions for interesting cheap joints in El Paso?

  1. I think you are out of luck in the Ft. Stockton area. My wife and I drove through there on our way to LA when we moved earlier this year. The people are super friendly, but we ended up eating at a Pizza Hut. That was the best thing open at that hour, unless you prefer McDonald's. If you are up for a major diversion, there are some excellent places in the Alpine, Marfa and Ft. Davis areas. There is also some excellent sightseeing. Feel free to email me for details.

      I guess it's too late to help you now, but Sarah's on South Nelson in Fort Stockton serves some of the best Tex-Mex in the state.
