Are These the Best Burgers Joints in El Paso?

I recently took to the Mike and Tricia Facebook page wanting to know who in El Paso you thought had the juiciest, tastiest, best burger in town. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m surprised with your overwhelming choice. Not because I don’t think they serve up some yummy burgers, because I do, but because it’s not one of the usual suspects.

In fact, the burger you voted the best comes from … gasp! …  a chain restaurant. Here’s a look back at the Top 3 places you said serve up El Paso’s Best Burgers:

#3 Papa Burgers

Good old-fashioned diner quality hamburgers served out of a converted house on N. Piedras. It’s not a big place, I counted 8 tables and 3 ½ booths, and they don’t knock them out as fast as a Mickey D’s or a BK does but they’re definitely worth the wait.

#2 Rosco’s

Like the Papa Burgers on Piedras, Roscos grills their burgers out of a converted house in Central El Paso. And the available seating isn’t much better either with a seating capacity of 50. But there ‘s a reason why it wins Best Of accolades time after time, and the parking lot starts filling up fast by 11:30: the juicy, greasy burgers with grilled onions, diced lettuce, pickles, and sliced tomatoes consistently kick butt!!!

#1 Whataburger

Facebook

Unlike the other burger joints on the list, Whataburger—or, “Waterburger” as its endearingly referred to around here,  is a chain. You can’t drive more than a few miles without seeing an orange W hanging up in the air, and that’s probably one of the reasons it was the clear winner. There’s something to be said for convenience. But that’s just a plus. The burger itself is your standard 1/4-pound patty on a toasted bun. Something about that simplicity coupled with the lettuce, tomato, pickles and onions that just works. I honestly can’t explain why they’re so good. They just are. A word to the wise, though; don’t ever leave a Whataburger bag – empty or full – in your car for any amount of time!
