Taste of El Paso comes back to the downtown Convention Center this Thursday, November 11. You'll have 12 amazing El Paso restaurants tempting your tastebuds with delectable samples pulled from their menus. But wait! There's more. You'll also get wine or craft beer sample paired with each restaurant offering.

I got the chance to check out the menu item for Taste of El Paso from Independent Burger. Is there any better pairing right now during football season than a classic slider and hand cut fries? I think not! A slider is the perfect size burger to fill you up, but not weigh you down, and with eleven other restaurants to check out, that's important at Taste of El Paso. Independent Burger tops their juicy sliders with smoked cheddar cheese, pickled red onions, lettuce, tomato, and Indy sauce. You'll also get a generous helping of hand cut fries on the side. Why 'hand cut' fries? Because then you know they come from an actual potato, not a plastic bag. They are fab.

Independent Burger is located in TI:ME at Montecillo on Mesa on the westside. Check the out this week at Taste of El Paso.
