If you try just one new El Paso restaurant this year, Yelp says make it Viet Restaurant on Zaragoza.

The crowd-sourced local businesses reviews site has named the family owned eatery The Hottest New Restaurant in all of Texas.

Not just El Paso; the. entire. state.

Of all the restaurants that opened across the state in 2017 -- including new joints in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio -- the Yelp foodie brigade was most impressed with Viet Restaurant, which, as its name implies, serves traditional Vietnamese foods.

To create this list, our experts in the Yelp Data Lab identified the restaurants that were added to Yelp in 2017 and ranked the highest in their state, based on a formula that takes into account the number of reviews and star ratings.”

Yelpers gave the year old Far East El Paso restaurant the most number of enthusiastic thumbs ups: a total of 80 5-star reviews.

Here's a small sampling of accolades from the Yelp community:

Everything about it was amazing. The soups are very big and filling.” -- Estefany M.

Spring rolls were fresh, the broth and beef of the pho was the best I've had in El Paso, price was lower than other places and the service was outstanding.” -- Edward D.

Excellent pho, broth was near perfect.” -- Fred S.

I don't normally find myself that far east, but with so many pho-bulous reviews, I just might have to drive out of my way and pho-rage for noodles there. The soups sound pho-nominal. Or should I say pho-nomnom-nominal?

Sorry. I'll stop now. Pho-shizzle.
