Ribs in El Paso

  • j

I'll be in El Paso early in '06 for a little while. I've never had the pleasure of eating real Texas ribs. There has to be someplace terrific in the vicinity. Any suggestions?

  1. The only place I have gone for ribs is the State Line, 1222 Sunland Park Dr. I have been told on good authority that there is no place in town that is better (although I'm not a big rib eater, so I haven't checked the other places out).

    If you want a traditional steak I would really encourage you to go to Cattleman's Steakhouse a few miles east of El Paso at the Fabens exit. They raise their own cattle, and to me this puts it ahead of the places that serve "feedlot beef."

      I second both of these reccomendations. I lived in El Paso in the early 90's and tried to get to State line and Cattlemans at least once a month. I still dream about the baby back ribs at Stateline, and it's really worth the drive to experience Cattlemans. Enjoy!
