Best Burger in the World Served Up in El Paso
It seems that the best burger in Texas, nay the world is apparently being served up in our beautiful city of El Paso.
I came across an article that was written in 2012 by Traveller57, and according to the author of the blog ‘Best Burger in Texas, Maybe the World’ was referring to a burger that he or she ate while in El Paso. The article speaks of a burger so delicious it defies all other burger joints and concoctions. The famed burger apparently is being served up at Zino’s Greek & Mediterranean Cuisine in West El Paso. Nestled in a strip mall next to Albertson’s off of Resler, the burger is a combination of lamb, caramelized onions, spinach and two different cheeses and other special ingredients. The author of the said burger is so sure that this is the best burger they’ve ever eaten that they go as far as stating that it may be the best burger in the world.
