There's a lot I miss about that place. I miss the fact that Cloudcroft and Ruidoso were so close. Carlsbad. New Mexico in general to me is gorgeous.

I miss the Utep games. I miss the weather.

That place is unlike any other place I have encountered. However.....with all that said.....I don't think I will ever move back. Unless I retire there of course!

I tried, but I couldn't get that stuff down. The only people I knew who could, were born and raised there.

I've always wondered if a Chico's Tacos would work here in the Big D. There are, after all, a lot of people from EP here.

Everytime I go home I HAVE to eat there! God I'm hungry now!

Lived there for 15 years and ate a lot of Chico's tacos. I never wanted to ask what kind of ground up meat, ie: stomachs, livers, noses ect, was in them as I'm sure I'd never touch them again.

Freds in Jaurez was the place to get a sandwich and Tecate's at 3am.

EP was a fun place in the late 70's/ early 80's.

Yes sir! Freds was quite the place. Ate a sandwich there on many occasions. Also used to go to the derby a lot. Of course this was all before they really started cracking down on all the damn teenagers going over there.

Oh and didn't go to "La Cate" but I had several buddies that did. I actually graduated "De la Jeff!" The pride of the southside!
(funny thing is I lived in Santa Teresa area when I went to Jeff, graduated from the Magnet School in 97!)

That DOES suck. But it's also not the first time I've heard that.
Once on my way back from EP I was in Pecos and got pulled over by a popo. He stopped for the same thing (no front license plate) but fortunately he just gave me a warning and I was on my way.

I lived there from 14 to 27, went to Coronado HS and went to UTEP. My in laws still live there so we go every once and a while. I only look forward to chicos and getting cheap tequila.

I don't know how many times I left a bar in Juarez as the sun was coming up. Only thing I think I miss are the mountains.

Yeah a buddy of mine and I used to go in his dune buggy, but on the West side, out by Mc Nutt road in Santa Teresa. Talk about some fun ass times! Then they went and built the road and the new gate to Mexico...and all that shit went down hill from there. Pretty disappointing really. I'd imagine the same thing happened on the east side. El Paso is just growing so fucking fast it's unreal.

Yeah I do remember reading about that. I haven't even back to El Paso to be able to see where it's located now. From my understanding it's out there near Sunland Park. The Big Cheese FTW!!

born and raised in big EP, I really do miss it. But I think it was more the whole being a kid thing... not so much the city, although I do love that shit hole even to this day. I just miss the smell of the rain in the desert, and the mountains.

Yes sir! Probably my favorite smell in the world is before and after it rains...in the desert! El Paso is beautiful in it's own ways.

There is a beauty in the desert that you don't realize until you live there a while. Do people still go off roading out at red sands, east side out Montana Avenue?

The one thing I don't miss is the good old dust storms that blew up from April till early June if I remember correctly.

Gussies Tamales on Pieadras (?). Damn those things were the best I ever had.

About the whole off roading....I'm just not sure. I think that they still do it..but not as much. El Paso is growing so damn fast it wouldn't surprise me if there are houses out there now.

Yeah those dust storms sucked major donkey balls. It seemed like I could NEVER keep my cars clean for more than a day because of all the dust in the air. Not to mention how crazy my allergies were too.

And yes...Gussies has some damn good tamales. Ah my old stomping grounds. I grew up on Mountain Street right down the road from Rusk Elementary. I used to ALWAYS go to that little convenience store on the corner. For any that know what I'm talking about it's called R&S. I miss El Paso....sometimes more than others. I am hoping to go home for Spring Break in March to visit everyone. I'll definitely be making a stop at Chicos and all the other kick ass places in the big EP!

The weather always amazed me out there.

You could be on the east side and it would be nice, then cruise over to the west side and it would be raining.

I don't know how old most of the people are in this thread but I'll mention a couple of bars and we'll see.....

The Gold Rush
Tree Top
Cockpit
Dallas
New Buffalo
Cotton Patch
Miguels
SK Stampede
Gasoline Alley/ turned into the Surf Club
Acetuna's.....had a lot of fun there.

Wow! I know none of those bars except maybe Aceitunas and the Stampede. You see I am 28 but I left El Paso when I was 20. So no bars for me....at least not in El Paso! Now Juarez.....that's a different story.

A lot of those bars closed in the early to late 80's. ELP was a great rock and roll town back then.

Juarez...hmmm let's see...
Freds
Spanish Town Inn
The infamous White Lakes
Ant there was a new modern club that I went to a couple of times before I moved in 1990 but don't remember the name. Great pick up joint. Kind of had a Miami Vice feel to it.

In the 80's I had a friend from Mexico who had diplomatic plates and a courtesy card and man you could get away with just about anything you wanted to with no bribes to anyone and no fear of getting arrested.

I still have quite a few friends who live and have business establishments there. I'm going to have to make a trip out there some day but I know it won't be the same.

When I left in 1990 Lee Trevino Street was the last exit before Zaragosa Road and I did pass through there about 3 years ago and the east side had exploded.

Wonder what the hot rod scene is like?
