L & J Café
If walls could talk . . . . The L & J first opened in 1927 outside the city limits of El Paso near Fort Bliss. It’s been over 85 years, and they’ve never moved or even changed much, but now they’re in the center of town and still serving great Mexican food, cold beer and great margaritas. Right next door is Concordia Cemetery, an historical landmark where many notables, including gunfighter John Wesley Hardin, are buried. If you like to search out the places the locals and publications including Texas Monthly and Southern Living love, then L & J is a great choice.
