Modest Rehearsal Dinner in El Paso for 45 - HELP not from area!!
Hi TX Chowhounders - I am a CT Chowhound, my brother is getting married in el Paso in June and I am trying to help my mother plan a rehearsal dinner.
Any help is appreciated as we are not in the area and neither is the bride currently.
Approx 45 people (incl. kids)- a CASUAL meal is pref as my parents can't afford anything too crazy. The Wedding itself is a super casual backyard BBQ so modest is definitely the word. A private space inside or out is great if at all possible.
THANK YOU in advance for any tips or advice - my mom is stressing hard on this one.
Cattlemens Steakhouse in Fabens, TX (20 min outside El Paso) is a winner and its realatively inexpensive. Its been on travel channel a few times - http://www.cattlemansranch.com/menu.htm
Stateline BBQ is an OK place and may be a little cheaper and its closer to the center of ELP.
Hope this helps - good luck
We had our rehearsal dinner at Avila's. It is a family tradition and often the food is subpar but they were easily able to handle a big party.
We had an event in a private room at Los Bandidos de Carlos & Mickey's, Tex Mex cuisine. It was good food at a very modest price. The staff was efficient and attentive. Cattlemen's is steak and therefore not inexpensive, at least the times I've been that was my experience.
