Destination El Paso, TX

WELCOME TO EL PASO

El Paso is located on the banks of the mighty Rio Grande right across the border from Ciudad Juárez,Chihuahua, Mexico. The two cities, along with Las Cruces (in the neighboring state of New Mexico), form a combined international metropolitan area, sometimes referred as the Paso del Norte or El Paso–Juárez–Las Cruces.

This land is rich in culture and history. While visiting in the El Paso area you will have exposure to multiple cultures, from American to Spanish. This beautiful city will serve as a future destination for you and your loved ones, of that we are certain.

While we celebrate the Rockabilly Riot on September 1st & 2nd, there will be a dynamic meeting of many cultures, and we feel El Paso is the place to do this. The bands, food and hospitality of our city will make you fall in love with the Southwest and leave you thirsty for next year’s event!

So come on, make plans to attend – it will be a great experience! And don’t forget the kiddos, it’s an event for all. See you there!

EXPERIENCE EL PASO

HERE ARE SOME RECOMMENDED PLACES TO VISIT WHILE IN TOWN

Chico’s Tacos – An El Paso staple since 1953, featured on Food Network’s “Best thing I’ve Ever Eaten,” they feature their unique style of tacos that are so good you should order a double. Don’t forget to dip your fries in and drink the juice when you’re done.

Carlos and Mickey’s – A traditional Mexican cuisine restaurant where you’re likely to be satisfied with any selection. Make sure you order a cup of the Caldo de Res, and wash it down with one of their world famous Margaritas.

L&J Cafe – The old place by the graveyard. Yes it’s next door to Concordia Cemetery, and yes it’s probably haunted, and yes the food is amazing! Stop by and get the green chili enchiladas. You won’t regret it.

H&H Car Wash – A local secret is H&H Car Wash serves up some of the best tacos in the world! Take your ride to get it detailed and grab 4 tacos and a Mexican coke.

Track One – Eat inside an old train car converted into another local favorite. It’s  classic American cuisine with great burgers and sandwiches, they’re also known for having the best wings in town! Order the “Double Dip,” and you’ll be hooked!

The Tap – Located downtown, on historic San Antonio Ave. this dive is a great place to enjoy everyday Mexican grub, beer & cocktails that are served in narrow, easygoing digs with weekly live jazz.

The Pizza Joint – A newer local favorite also located downtown, get a slice and a beer and you’ll be set. Live music on select nights, it’s a great place to have a “joint” and grab a slice of zah.
