El Paso Dairy Queen to Be Featured on ‘Texas Bucket List’ TV Show
Maye you’ve heard, seen, or read "The Texas Bucket List" television show will visit a Dairy Queen in El Paso. Show host Shane McAuliffe and the TBL crew will be at the DQ at 12920 Edgemere on May 20.
No word on what exactly the segment will be about, why that particular DQ was chosen, and when it will air, but the first couple of hundred El Pasoans who drop in between 4 and 6 p.m. on that day will get their choice of a free mini-Blizzard, small cone, Dilly Bar or a DQ Sandwich, so I guess it really doesn’t matter, amirite?
Now, I understand DQ is a new sponsor this season so I’m thinking probably the Hungr-Buster or BeltBuster will be the featured "Burger of the Week" and they chose a Dairy Queen here because they haven’t been in El Paso since they filmed at the Great American Steakburger on N. Mesa in the summer of 2020.
El Paso and the El Paso-area has been featured numerous times on The Texas Bucket List over the last few years. Aside from the Great American Steakburger, local restaurants Chico’s Tacos, H&H Carwash, Rosa’s Cantina, and the super-haunted Monteleone’s Ristorante have all been showcased in past seasons, and locations including Hueco Tanks State Park, the oddity-filled Dave’s Pawn Shop downtown, and the moth-balled Wyler Tramway have been too.
