RE: Question for UTEP people.
A little further west into New Mexico the chilies and food made from them are most excellent. If you have never partaken of those peppers, you are in for a treat. They probably have similar in El Paso. I look forward to the Hatch Chili shipment each year to my local grocery store. Some of them can be quite hot while others are mild and have an excellent flavor.

The Downtowner Restaurant on the first floor of The Indigo Hotel is amazing. A little pricey though.

RE: Question for UTEP people.
Don't go to Chico's Tacos. It is an acquired taste that people either love or hate. There are just so many other places that are better. One that I have seen mentioned is the State Line. They have amazing Beef BBQ as well as other things. Not sure if you like gambling but the Sunland Park Race Track and Casino would be a place to check out. I think it is great to meet people from other schools, so let me know if you make the trip and I can stop by to say hello at the game.

Thanks for the invite. As it gets closer to game time I'll definitely bump this back up to the top and might try to hookup with some of you guys if it works out. And thanks for the recommendations.

Parts of these drives are very scenic. Parts are not.

From what I remember there is a lot of that "not". Bring your mp3 player as the radio stations are also sparse.

I have an Infinity G37x that has a Bose system in it.

I am an INFINITI fanboi! Gotta give you props on the ride.

However, being an INFINITI fanboi, nothing bothers us more than misspelling its name...it's INFINITI, with 4 "I's"... and with no "Y" on the end....we may let is slide if someone doesn't CAP its name.

But the point of trying local food is that you can't get it anywhere else. You can get BBQ anywhere in the country but you can only get Chicos in El Paso.

Settle down Beavis. I absolutely know how to spell Infiniti and my only defense is I must have been autocorrected on that and didn't catch it. Glad you did. Love my G37x. Just drove to Florida and back the last week and it performed admirably as always. It's a really fun car and the AWD never gets old, especially at 2:00 in the morning swooping through Monteagle side to side as I did on the way back.

My other car is a 1996 GMC Sierra beat on pickup truck. A Chevy owner once told me GMC stood for 'gay man's Chevrolet'. Made me laugh. I love this old truck and drive it more during the summer than I do the sedan.

I'm guessing that west Texas and Arizona will have some really straight stretches where I can open the G37x up a little bit. I never really have. It's not the fastest car ever from a dead stop but I've never been in one that jumps from 70-95 like this one does. The response in that range is immediate and can get you out of some boxed in spots on the highway quickly.

You can get BBQ anywhere in the country but it varies by regions. Texas is known for beef BBQ but there is big difference in the sauce from west Texas spices to the tang of the rest of Texas. My opinion on Chicos is that you might as well by frozen taquitos and drown them in some water downed tomato sauce with some pepper and a ton of American cheese, stuff you can get at any local store.

RE: Question for UTEP people.
So you are saying people shouldnt go there because YOU don't like it? Isn't that a tad selfish? If you are going to visit ELP, promote the local Mexican food. That is what it is known for.
