Cuartito Azul or the 'Little Blue Room' is where El Pasoans come to hear Argentine music and dine on dishes from old Río de la Plata. The owners came from Argentina to open their restaurant in nearby Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and subsequently opened this location in 2007. The chefs in the kitchen prepare the traditional of dishes like their popular churrasco, or barbecued meats alongside one of the best Chimichurri sauces in the entire Southwest. Since we are talking about Argentina and considering the influx of Italians to the country during the 20th Century was so enormous, it would only be apropos to find some Italian dishes on the menu like gnocchi, tortellini, and more. If you come with a group or a large family, order the 'Parrillada', it is a "monster-piece" of meats that will definitely feed everyone, except vegetarians.

And with a full bar, you're assured a good time is had by all. Call for hours.
This local institution has four different locations in the city and it is the go-to option for Italian subs, pizza and calzones. The chefs create many different types of pies, some of the gourmet options include Salmon & Fennel, Canadian Bacon & Smoked Oysters or of course you can create your own. The portions are great and although the items may be a bit on the pricier side, the homey ambiance of Chianti bottles on the walls with the traditional straw baskets and delicious ingredients prepared in the kitchen merit some of this.
One of the popular neighborhood spots in the northwestern part of the city, House of Rock is known for its offerings of wings, reasonably-priced beer, and music.

It seems that wood-fired pizza is the way-to-go if you want your restaurant to be ultra-successful, and by the looks of the crowded tables at this restaurant, it appears the owners are doing something right. The menu is simple, as there are only a few items per category, but each option is made with care and the best ingredients. In fact, the kitchen even makes its own handmade mozzarella. The pizzas are equally uncomplicated, the Marinara and Margherita have less than four ingredients and the 'Smoked' just has bell pepper, fennel sausage and smoked mozzarella. One other benefit is that the restaurant allows guests to bring-your-own-bottle; this only adds to the reasons why you should come here.
Ripe is just what El Paso needs, a restaurant that focuses on innovative recipes and a place where guests rarely run into Tex-Mex ingredients on the menu. If they do, the plates still make this Southwest style shine in a different way. The restaurant is a brother/sister establishment that was founded in 2007 and they present three service times, weekend brunch, lunch and dinner. Each menu has their wonderful burgers with beef sourced from Bakka Ranch and the Caramelized Risotto with Pear Fennel and Chicken Ratatouille are great choices. Happy Hour from 3-6pm includes 3USD off appetizers and 1/2 off glasses of wine, overall a nice place to visit off-the-beaten New American path.
