It has been nearly a 100 years and the L & J Cafe is not only still ticking, it is busy winning acclaim and new customers in El Paso, Texas. Back in the day, it was known as “Tony’s Place”. What began as humble prohibition-era chow spot on the outskirts of the town (featuring some gambling) is now the kind of hidden gem that manages to attract its fair share of celebrities.

Ownership of L & J Cafe is now in the hands of the fourth generation of the family so you know pride is rolled into every enchilada! Stop by for the best Mexican food in El Paso, TX, bar none!

This “old place by the graveyard”, as it is also known since it isn’t far from the Concordia Cemetery, is operated within an historic building covered in photos and other memorabilia signed by celebrities over the years.

We suggest the chicken mole enchiladas. So many so called Mexican restaurants don’t even serve mole, let alone a mole this good!

Don’t take our word for it, watch this video:
