Griggs Family Restaurant
5800 Doniphan Dr.
El Paso, TX
24 NM 2003 The Griggs family reopened this restaurant with the original recipes, and it has the best New Mexico style food in town. I like the red and green enchiladas, chiles rellenos, and stuffed sopaipillas (I order them with the red chile used on enchiladas). The Griggs extended family originated La Posta in Mesilla and El Pinto in Albuquerque, New Mexico. For some reason, though, only this restaurant seems to provide the rich flavors and spiciness that I think accurately represent the original family recipes. Salsa is the one example of food here that is not very spicy, and probably out of the mainstream of New Mexico style food preparation. This is a minor detail, though, compared to the overall excellent meals that are served.
Hamburger Hut

El Paso, TX
16 EP 2001 Generally this restaurant serves about the greasiest food in town. However, if you can make it for breakfast you can try some of the best huevos rancheros anywhere (actually, it gets my vote for the best huevos rancheros in El Paso).
